Hi Mike & fellow Traders

My name is Hamish & I have been trading for around 2 years having gone through the newbie route of attending seminars,opening & blowing accounts & entrusting sign up fees to would be gurus all of which have stepped me forward 2 paces and back 4. I acknowledge that to a large degree,this is my own fault through my own form of discretionary trading & lack of discipline.However,I realise that the transparency behind charts & price action is masked to a degree by such gurus and their guidance is akin to giving a learner driver dark glasses and giving him the keys..Fortunately through my own determination to find real answers,I've arrived here. Now in looking back through various books,courses and advice I've taken on board,i'm binning those dark glasses and look forward to seeing a clearer picture by sharing & learning...Thanks Hamish.

No NZ..However many Scots emigrated to the South Island looking for gold (aren't we all..:~ ) ) so the connection traces all the way back to near Aviemore..I feel right at home when I go up there though.
Right now I'm concentrating on getting to grips with Order Flow...tape reading,cumulative delta,summary & reconstructed tapes,depth & sales. It's a lot to take in but used in the right way,I'm sure it can only help..How about you Trambo ?

Ah ok cool, aviemore is beautiful I know it well. Strange you should ask - I'm also just looking to start implementing order flow, been watching a lot of Jigsaw videos and looking at going down that route, time in front of a screen is an issue for me at the moment so looking to find a good way to build experience shorter term in the times I have available. I've found the Ask me anything thread on Jigsaw very helpful.

Cheers
Trambo

Rena Trader aka Diamond setups (Renato Santos)?

Does anyone know if Rena Trader aka Diamond setups (Renato Santos) is legitimate. It is interesting that there is little information on the internet - which I take as a good sign. If he was ripping people off, I would think we would have heard about it by now. But on the other hand, it is surprising that others are not singing his praises if he is as good as he says . . . unless they want to keep the secrete to themselves?!

Please reply if you have any personal experience with him.

Thanks

Hope You are doing G.G.G.Great : )

Hi!

I did a lot of simulated trading, some real ones, trade options, now learning futures spreads.
Developing a platform to compare trader's account or portfolio P/L with a selected benchmark.

Simulated futures spread trading is going well for me on TOS, would like to get confirmation of the same results on another platform(s) and select the one for real trades. Open to discuss things...

Wishing You great positive P/Ls!

Artu

good to be here


hello all,

my boyfriend introduced me to trading, he is a holder of long positions as he has vast knowledge of world economy trends that he has witnessed in his 10 years of trading. however, i am just a beginner. he tried to teach me some stuff, but i decided to also find some other resources for myself. took one course online that i found helpful, but that road has ended, course complete, but the learning never ends. i, myself, like the quick in and out of day trading. eventually tho, i would like to hold long positions, such as getting a long in feb on crude oil, but i guess that moment has past. also interested in currencies, but that the moment its s&p and i do have experience in korean futures if anyone has questions, super volatile. currently on a remote island with nothing but time and a wifi connection. hoping to really get immersed in here and learn a lot, and hopefully in turn help others. 화이팅!!!
