Hello all, I just joined today and wanted to say Hi. I am new to trading, about a month old in it. I started out with TOS and in the last few days found that I could do Auto trading with NinjaTrader so I have been knee deep in studying and trying to code. Going to stick to Paper Accounts until I feel 85% confident in trading before I throw real money at it.
Hi, my name is Joanna (Jo for short). I grew up on the East Coast, but am currently living outside of Seatte, WA..
I've been studying and trading for almost 2 years. I started with Stocks & ETF's and then Futures, but found that i like trading the FX market the best. I am currently invested (1 year) in MTI's Ultimate Charting Software, and although it has its shortcomings, I need to stick with it until February 2017.
I really like the Open Trader and have learned a lot from the videos and webinars. My biggest problem is finding a way to get Market Profile and TPO to work with my software. If there are any FX traders out there, I'd really appreciate your advice.
I am relatively new to trading and I have sampled with Forex and Indices. I am blown away with the amount of scams on the internet that have done nothing but cost me money. I am looking for like minded people that are genuine that will give me support to get started and hopefully I can give the same back. I am interested automated trading only. As I don't know if I am able to trade all day in front of a screen. Or at least develop quality indicators that will allow me trade when I can. I am starting with the MT4.
It's been 110 days since I joined so I figured I'd come out of the dark and introduce myself. So I'm a mechanical engineer who resides in LA. While I was in college, I was introduced to the trading world by a friend of a friend (who is now a good friend of mine) early 2013. He was a successful options trader that has been averaging 10-20k/yearly while running his own property management business. Even though it wasn't much, that blew me away. I had to get in on what he is doing.
He spent countless hours pulling up thinkorswim charts and teaching how to trade options, introduced me to tasty trade, etc. After some practice on paper trading, I eventually funded a $3000 account and I was on my way. Of course, it didn't turn out the way I hoped it would. Long story short, I joined an options meeting in the LA area and the organizer (who is also a good friend and a mentor) introduced me to futures. I was hooked. Let's just say I was very lucky on my trading journey to have people constantly supporting and showing me the right direction.
My futures journey started with trading the 10 year treasury notes (ZN). I blew my account after a frustrating two weeks. However with all the support and consistent mentoring, I eventually saved up to trade the Emini S&P (ES) and was back at it again. After 6 months of intensely learning different strategies and implementing proper risk management trading ES, I was a zero sum trader but I didn't blow my account and to me that was a major achievement. I eventually moved to Crude Oil (CL) as I loved the volatility it provided. That was my calling. I like to stick to trading one futures product and CL was it. Besides that put on options trades on stocks. And that is my introduction guys. Looking forward to being more active here when time allows me.
Hello Mike and everyone,
I have been trading Forex since last 2 years, still a beginner. Came to know about futures.io when I was searching google for better understanding of Al brooks H1 H2 and L1 L2 from his book Reading Price action bar by bar book.
I purchased the book some time ago and couldn’t understand anything and started searching on the internet for the price action traders who are trading al brooks method/ strategy.
