My brief introduction.

Hi everyone,

So I've been interested in trading since about 2008. Initially I'll be honest I was motivated by financial reward however as time has progressed and I've learned more about how much of a personal challenge trading is I'm much more motivated by winning the battle against myself, with a healthy desire for a comfortable income from trading.

Like many I started looking at a few books and trying out a few systems trading Forex. I got some education to start with but couldn't make it work as I always had this sense I was missing something and I didn't really understand the market place, I was also dubious about how legitimate the industry was and much preferred the professional and transparent nature of the futures market.

I've had a lot of starts and stops due to my work - I left the military last year and decided to take a much more professional approach to my learning. I found a great educator and have since learned a lot more about the fundamentals of how markets work and what drives them.

Due to work commitments and lack of capitalisation I'm trading Simulated Futures and have an interest in the Crude Market. I've decided to stick to this one market and trade it based of key 4 hour levels using the 15 minute technical entries using volume and market delta.

My long term aspiration is to become a funded Top Step Trader and I'd like to get a much better understanding of macro economic principles. I'm finding balancing my work (Helicopter Pilot) and a young family whilst trying to maintain a professional approach to my trading a challenge however if I can become consistently profitable I'll be proud to achieve that. I'm looking forward to utilising this great resource and learning from you all.

Kind regards,

Trambo.

Introduction as a new member

Aloha all,

I trade futures and options in Hawaii. I also like to buy high grow stocks and sell out of the money call option against them to collect premium.

I have been doing trading part time for the last twenty years. The progress has been very slow and would like to connect with the like-minded people to become a master trader.

Good luck and good trading!

IQTrader

Stealth Trader Indicators


Hi,
Anyone replicated or know what the HyperSnapBack indicator is that is sold by StealthTraders? I would really like to try their indicators out but it cost too much. Is there something free that is essentially the same?

Hi all,

I went to school for engineering, work in the oil & gas industry now doing pipeline maintenance. I'm 29 years old.

I've been playing with TOS for a couple months but now I'm trying to learn NT. So far, I've written a couple simple Indicators based on various moving averages. Trying to get into system/automated trading.

At the moment, I'm trying to figure out how historical price data on CL works in NT. Seems way off compared to TOS and random price data I've dug up via Google. Something to do with contract roll-over and merge policy? I'm still trying to figure it out.

EDIT: I set Merge Policy to MergeNonBackAdjusted and now the prices match up with TOS.

Hi all,

I've been learning to trade using price and volume since more than 1 year, starting to get profit in the last months.

However, I'm eager to learn more in-depth indicators and tools than can improve my operations by getting more knowledge of where the strong hands of the market put more contracts to move or stop the price, so that's why I'm here, and also to help in everything I can given my limited experience
