Hi all,

Like many of us, as a beginner I was enamored with the possibility of a holy grail indicator combination. This cost me a lot of money.

Now I'm focusing on wising up, improving my order flow/tape reading skills and learning from/contributing to others as I develop.

Glad to be on board.

Best,

GT

Hi!!


Hello!

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.

Thank you,
happy trading!

Hi,

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.

Hi

Hi

I work in IT - getting bored being laid off all the time (I do contract work)

Started trading fx pairs before news is released with some success

Looking for indicators that will confirm when a move is over - and if there will be a retracement

Have recently been looking at order flow

Futures trading newbie

Hello everyone from the sunshine state. I started day trading in Apr 2015 without any knowledge with 70K. I had what's called beginners luck, because at one tome I had 90K in my portfolio. Then, I started to take more risks and lost most of it. I have about 20K and still hanging to dear life with investments in UGAZ and TVIX. I went to a one day seminar and I talked to an instructor, and he recommended I switch to futures trading. I've been doing some on-line research and I came to this page. Hopefully I'm home. S and P 500 caught my attention, and I want learn everything about how to trade. I'm looking for an online platform because in Scottrade I cannot trade futures. My goal is recover at least half of my loss, and to make $200 daily trading futures.

GoodDay Folks,

Although I am a geologist/engineer who has started his career working in Oil Platforms around the world. I have always had a passion for investing and stock picking, which transmuted to swing trading FOREX (one account blew up) and now Futures Indexes and Bonds: (emini ES, US, TY).

I am stuck in the phase 3: Gain a lot, lose a lot = breaking even. I am still a part-timer and my dream is to become constantly profitable and go full time.

The frustrating thing is: I can turn a 10K paper trading account in tradestation, to 15k in a month. Trading the same system, but when I go live I start overtrading and get slapped in the face I am looking to buy some common sense if any of you folks have it to spare...
