Hello

Hi all. I'm new to the forum. I'm excited to learn and share here. 5 years experience, but still learning to get consistent. On my trading wall I have a sign that says I'm going to be wrong a lot, but I will not lose large. I will survive and absolutely destroy the winners that come my way. Be patient. Be confident. Be smart
Glad to be here.

Hello!

I've had an unrelenting curiosity about markets for ever since I can remember. There is something so gripping about trying to find the answer to what's moving a particular market or how markets will discount the outcome of an unknown event or even just engaging in the constant soul-searching required to decide whether your thesis is still correct. It all drives me, excites me and challenges me! I'm enthralled by performing the research, structuring the trade, being correct - or wrong and having to adjust on the fly, and ultimately making money!

I timed the November 2014 oil short damn-near perfectly! I mean luck could not have been more exactly on my side, my put position was even quoted in the FT! This occurred in tandem with some really successful calls on ECB QE and shorting Euro. The success and trading profits were earned rather quickly - despite working full-time as a coverage banker and trading after-hours and on my phone, and it went to my head a bit faster than would be ideal. Subsequent to these successes I had two personal crises pop up in my life. Sorting them out and fighting the Spring 2015 rise in oil was a very expensive and demoralizing endeavor. My fund lost >75% of its value and Draghi's more recent balk in expanded QE in December about leveled me out (+150k give/take). I'm back with a clearer mind, a renewed sense of purpose and a stronger discipline for risk management and "my system." I'm looking forward to meeting some like-minded folks, debating ideas, and learning!

Hi all,
I've been demoing for approximately one year now and have recently gone live. Mainly focus on ES and NQ, scalping. Looking to get the most out of the site!

Hi Mike and all,

I'm self employed mainly doing work for events. Most of my income comes from being a corporate host.

I've always been interested in making money from trading and finally took tangible steps 4 months ago. I'm determined to make this my bread and butter so I'm ready to rumble.

Glad to be here!

Been trading for a year or 2, started with stocks and options, some frustration and lost money but have found a home in the futures market. For whatever reason I find it much more interesting than the former, although I still play options a little.

After tons of reading and browsing it is apparent this is one of the best sites out there for futures traders. Focused on the futures trading and no noise, BS, and chatter of so many of the other places. Looking forward to hanging out and being a part of it!

Jon

Cool, I am in the process of funding a new AMP account and planning on using TT - moving over from TOS for futures trading. I'm sure I will be bugging you!

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.

Thanks very much,
Jo.

Other than the problem you mentioned have you enjoyed the software? Have you used actively any other software?
