Thanks George, I appreciate your message. I'm looking forward to doing the research legwork, and will use this site's enormous info resource before I start posting much in the way of dumb questions. I'm not 100% sure that I should really be here yet, as it's such early days that I'm going to be something of a 'taker' for a while with not much to give, and I'm not comfortable about that. Thanks. Ross.

Hello everyone....

Just started trading within the past year. Started with credit spreads and didn't like them. Last Augusts' flash crash made me put me on the sidelines for awhile. Interested in the eminis and have had some success. Great at reading charts but too much jumping in and out. Would love to hear from others.

Greetings from Darwin

Greetings Traders,

Even though I have been a constant lurking member for a long time, I thought I would get around to posting an intro.

Live and work in the top end of Australia. I have been day trading for several years now, the ES is my instrument of choice. On account of the time difference here, most of the time I end up trading the Globex sessions.

Glad to be a member of the forum, lots of great material here.

Hi All,
I've been dabbling in futures for a few years but just became serious in 2016.
Concentrating on ZB 30 year t-bonds. I figure with a single focus it will be easier to become proficient.
I would like to quit my day job in the next year or two so I am serious about learning.
Look forward to the interaction here.
Medium Size Mike

Hey Everyone,

I'm pretty much a newbie. I started out about 6 months ago and I'm currently trading the S&P emini. I'm still kind of lost so I figured that joining this forum would be a good place to start. I look forward to learning and hopefully helping in the near future.

Good afternoon community.

This is my first ever post.

I am new to trading and have only paper traded to this point (approx 1 month). More up days than down. Down days were when I started to make it more complicated or just wanted to "trade".

My objective is to develop a trading plan using ES as an instrument.

I intend to:

Develop a simple plan
Train myself to stick to that plan
Control hope, fear and anger to avoid over trading, under trading, and bad trading

I am still finding my way around the site so suggestions on where to go for simple plan development would be welcomed.

Great forum from what I have seen so far.
