New To The Site

Greetings to everyone. I am new to the site, not really new as I have been reading all the relevant posts for some time now, but new as far as posting. My first post will be a cry for help as I have also just started using Easylanguage in MultiCharts. I would greatly appreciate some Easylanguage code that will allow my strategy to start trading on Sunday evening at 20:00:00 and stop trading on Friday at 15:30:00. I also need some code that will close all open positions also on Friday, but at 15:30:20. I also need to know where in my strategy to place this code. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Again, many thanks and glad to be here.

Hello All,
I have been trading for over 10 years and like most beginners, I started off looking for the holy grail system that can make us rich in no time at all. It doesn't take long for me to realise if such system does exist, why would someone sell it to you in the first place. After attending numerous trading webinars and studied many books on technical ayalysis, I begin to understand in order to become a successful trader, we must control our risk first and profit will then look after itself. I also learn not to be complacent and have an opinion about which direction the market is going. Trade what I see from the chart and not what I think in my head. The market goes where it wants to go and my opinion on it's future movement is irrelevant. It's great to see so many traders here in this forum of different level of experience sharing their knowledge and helping each other. Looking forward to learn something from you guides.
Cheers and happy trading.

Hello Big Mike and Fellow Traders

I am a beginning Futures trader that at age 69, going on 21, decided to manage some extra money above my managed funds. Since the vast majority of my experience has been managing at a high level at long positions, I can only offer more questions than answers. I am however excited to progress on this new process.

my whole world has changed


Great to be part of something bigger than myself here. I've been trading for 3.5 years now and just turned profitable I believe. I'd love to tell my journey and continue to learn more and more. Well... Since I have some time... It's a crazy journey. I had to realize at first that I had an anger problem. I was holding back a lot of anger, frustration, and sadness. I didn't even know i was depressed, but i was. I had to first fix that. I'd did in an all out explosion of emotion in front of someone that truly loved me.. No judgment . Oh yea I didn't know what real love was either and that someone can love you just as you are instead of what you become...or are on paper... Sum real bs. After that was done I had to learn to not judge myself at all and in that process you'll not judge others... I could finally live in the present moment after that. I could be myself with no strings attached and life is like now what it was like when I was a kid. I always go with my first instinct... Which we're all told to do but nobody tells you exactly how to do it. I am currently still working on this but my trading is well... Perfect now. I make no mistakes so that can only end good. This is literally what I think when I trade now.... Chart.. Triangle. Up or down based on feel Up.... Put my tp in based on feel...is the tp/risk worth it? Good. Done. No second guessing, it's just me trading, and I found me is all I can be, and it's doing my best. Finally over that hump that it seems every trader gets stuck at. Ps... When you break down and cry like a baby because you've basically given up... Exactly what you need to do will come to you. It will be something that will not only help you with trading but help you in life too. Be patient and try as hard as you fucking can... And fail. Lose that battle and come back to win the war. Hope to make a lot of friends and learn tons!
