Hi my name is Worstebrood (on the forum that is) and I am from the Netherlands.
I started trading indices and forex through a CFD broker a couple of years ago. Now I am trading futures with the Ninjatrader Brokerage and their platform. I am following a nine month trading course and some day I will trade for a living (I am not hoping, I will make it happen ). Right now I am trading my plan and I am trying to trade as consistent as possible and reduce my mistakes. Trying to refine the few tools that I use.
Well, I hope to learn a lot from you guys on the forum. It is truly a great source of information and inspiration.
I began trading futures in 1995 and had to use the phone to place my orders then. I got my first computer in 1998 and at that time it was the fastest one available a whopping 333 MHz. TS was the only software available then so that is what I used. I used to think that it was all about indicators or thinking that I knew what the market had to do next but that was a big mistake and I paid for it with my accounts. At this point I try to let the market show me what it wants to do and then go with it. I watch order flow to confirm my decisions. I am happy to be part of the Futures.io community.
I have been trading futures for about 2 years. Partially retired and essentially trading full time.
I really love the action and want to be more successful. Emini ES is what I am currently trading but kinda wished I
had selected something else since I am having so much trouble. I have always been a sales/people person and extremely emotional. I find this gets me into a lot of trouble. How can I fix this? Do I need to look at auto trading?
I'm Alberto from Italy, I'm following the futures markets from some time, and I'm now involved in the self learning process, doing some paper trading, and planning to start trading live sometime in 2016.
I'm focused mainly on FDAX, ES and 6E contracts.
Thank you Mike and all contributors for this great community.
I'm Massimo from Italy...I trade since 2009 principally index futures (Emini and Italian Index Future) and commodities (CL, Gold, Silver, Copper and Grains).
I'm an algo trader, use Multicharts for my backtesting purpose.
Hope to find new trading ideas and help community up to my background.
