Thanks for having me. I'm 63 years old and bored out of my mind running a car dealership. The money is great but the time away from home and family is starting to wear thin. I had been a broker many years ago so I am still in love with the markets. I have lossed and gained but until now have never given much thought to trade for a living. For the last month I have read and watched videos about trading futures and when I was looking for reviews of a trading course I stumbled across this site. I like what I have seen so far and am eager to ease myself into futures trading....with a little help from my friends.
The following user says Thank You to bcesca12 for this post:
I explored futures trading about 3 years ago. I took the advice to practice on the sim or a live demo feed for a few weeks realizing I couldn't consistently come out ahead and couldn't put in the real time I needed. This year I have a plan to learn more about automating strategies to drive in the emotionless discipline that trading effectively needs. My goal is to figure out how do develop strategies, how to evolve strategies and start trading real money later this summer if I hit the milestones I want. I figure I might start with European market futures so I can play in the morning before work. Eventual goal is to migrate to full-time if I can pull it off.
Currently using NinjaTrader7/8. Brushing off my old coding skills with some indicator and strategy development.
My name is Francesco,
I'm an engineer and I love caving.
I eventually got into futures.io I'm trying to learn and improve my trading skills, since I'm going to trade with more attention in the future (I've blown off an account implementing the wrong, emotional, strategies).
I'm spending some months to prepare myself for a second chance and hope to take advantage of your contributes and to give mine to the forum.
Hi traders , I'm touzi from Morocco,I have been trading forex mainly eurusd for a while and I felt something was missed ,the price alone was not enough for me, of course it was the volume ,thats why I moved to the futures market , price and volume gives to me a better view and good reading of the market .
look forward to learn a lot and hopefully give something back.
I have been actively trading for the last 10 years with mediocre success. Previously used Tradestation but in the past week moved to NinjaTrader. I like what I see so far. Many of the threads I was reading on NT lead me to this site. Looking forward to participating in the discussions and becoming a better trader.
