HI all Dorin here from Down Under, here to learn heaps, considering the experience some of you guys have, I am looking forward in being able to listen to some of the masters of this wonderful forum. Cheers ! Dorin
Hi all, looking forward to sharing ideas and anything else trading related that comes to mind. I've tried a bit of everything over the last decade - shares, properties, CFDs, buy & hold, trend following & so on. Now looking to refine all this into a more disciplined trading approach. Have read a lot around systematic trading, and tried some basic back-testing etc, so want to progress a bit further down this path. All the best.
New trader here. Yep you're probably thinking, "Great fresh meat. Let's fade whatever this guy does." Anyway I'm just getting my feet wet. I've decided to get TradeStation. My background is in math and risk quantification. I used to work as an actuary but didn't like it because I didn't feel like I got to make decisions or be creative. I'm hoping that I'll enjoy trading and have some success. Feel free to recommend others or tell me to stay away from some. I'm currently reading a ton of books. Feel free to recommend others or tell me to stay away from some.

Quite a beginner, I trade intra day & swing. Blew up account for last 3 years and now slowly breaking even. Firmly believe in Van Tharpe's "R Multiple" theory for position sizing. Looking for fresh perspective on trading psychology and also quantified trading system which will think in terms of "R". Yet to overcome fascination of Holy Grail and still looking for one, but enthusiasm has faded away. Want to focus more on JOURNAL as Big Mike says.
Like most day traders, I blew up my account a couple times and lost enough money to make most grown men weep.
Hello Mike and to all, I took the liberty of"copying" your text as those words fit me also!
Green as grass to Futures but that is why I'm here to educate myself .
Glad to find your site and eager to explore.
Boxing? Trading is tougher than boxing. In trading you may lose all money you have, lose your wife,
lose your health and even jump out of the window in despair.
Want to make money consistently?
So prepare your ass to be kicked for at least 5 years before you reach that stage.
Some people will still be clueless after 10 years in the market.
I don't believe in on price indicators, don't believe in fundamentals.
I believe in adapting to market conditions.
Market is a big cemetery, where fast guys will be soon gone, slow guys pray for a few more years,
and a couple of guys quite enjoy the process.
