I am a beginner, I have purchased stock in the past and earned some money but now I am interested in becoming a trader to start my partnership because I have clients who are interested in becoming investors. My investing style will be Swing Trading. I joined this community in hopes to learn how to become a great trader from you guys and get help in choosing the right Automated Trading System which can help me reach my goals in trading & profits. I am open to any help, ideas, suggestions, knowledge and your experience. I want to create a diversified portfolio to try to reach and maintain a certain monthly and annual return. I am reading & youtubing as much as possible but the best of it all is getting information directly from some of the most experienced traders.
I am happy and excited to be here and Thank You Big Mike for accepting me. I am eager to get started and I want everyone to Please reach out to me because I really need you guys.
Thank You So Much!
Wow , very nice forum. I just discovered it and I must admit I like it a lot already.
Anyways, I am trading for 6 years mostly options (for swing trades) but I do also trade futures actively by day-trading them using some of my setups. I might swing-trade as well futures but that is kinda rarer. If i like to hold a position for longer-time frames I will probably use options.
But anyways I will start reading some of the amazing articles I encountered already and wait to learn a lot of stuff here.
This is my first post, I'm looking on resources and training to learn volune spread analysis, besides the master the markets book, that I'm currently reading. Also I'm interested in footprint charts order flow.
I'm an almost 26 year old dude who recently got into futures after attempting to trade forex successfully for about 6 years and a bit. Why the change?
Well let's just say I borrowed money and blew half of it in the forex market (long story short, I got cocky about reading price action and 'traded from the gut' without any formal rules/guidelines or risk reward systems in place).
Good thing I still have a full time job, but I stopped there and took a step back, happened to come across the guys at OpenTrader and now I'm learning to trade the ES using volume profiles.
I did get funded as a prop forex trader after going through their sim levels once upon a time, but I wouldn't recommend them...they're sketch. Safe to say I did follow rules and money management back then.
Anyway, I keep a trading journal on a wordpress site anonymously. Maybe I'll consider moving it here (but it's so much more easier loading images to wordpress posts!). It's been about 2 weeks, but with the journal, and trading with rules again, I am seeing consistency in my account for once after a long time.
I am an ex South African. Moved to the states back in 94. Have traded the ES for some time. Started years ago with options and switch to futures about six years ago. Also looking at the 5-10 and 30 yr. I marvel at the wise and wisdom here. There is a lyric in a song that says "The more I see the less I know" I am happy to be here and glean and hopefully share.
I am all new in trading. All I used to do was to indicate to my banker buy this or that. With some training in statistics i grasp what is going on but the problem is the timings... i have opened an acct at Interactive Brokers and hope to manage my account decently... have to learn a lot but I am open to it... regards to all
