Hi Everyone!

Over the last years I read my books on trading and have decided to try the trading platforms for simulation.
I'm interested in forex and futures and have spent quite some time to understand these products.
I'm also interested in good indicators and crypto currencies (bitcoin, ethereum...)
Have a good day!
Vindiou

Finding an affordable workable system with a discernable edge

Right now if I find the holy grail of trading I probably wouldn't know it.
Probably change to a more promising system within a week or so.
Sigh.
The search goes on
Maybe will find some light here.

Trading is a craft, not a secret code you can crack. Learn it the hard way, and you might even succeed.

Glad to join your forum.
Want to hear how others make money in this market. It has not been easy for me.
Need a buddy. 2 heads are better than 1 I believe.

As the market morphs

Hi All,

New to the forum....been watching the markets since Aug 2015...developed a number of strategies around a very volatile market only to watch them transition into what we are currently seeing prior to taking my strategies live. As a greenhorn trader I didn't realize that the current low volatile market is the typical market, so...back to the ole drawing board...watching the eb and flow of the new market (new to me anyway) and developing ideas for strategies to fit this particular style market. Good times! Anyway! I hope to make some long lasting trading pals through this forum in time! And of course, I also aspire to become a successful trader

Happy Trading!

Hi Mike,

I'm a complete novice to futures. I have traded stocks and options for a few years. After expensive market lessons I now mainly trade SPY & SPX options.

I'm a student of Richard Wyckoff and WD Gann. I'm learning how to trade uncluttered charts based on at least a 3 minute chart looking for the Trend and using Supply and Demand areas.

Hi, Mike.
I'm a retired computer consultant, went to a 7-day class at Online Trading Academy, interested in futures. I have tradestation, will simulate until successful or I grow too tired of it all. This is my 4th week of simulation, still trying to find a good entry strategy and money/risk plan that doesn't stop out too quickly but is affordable.

I'm losing more often than not on 4-6 trades per day.

I've been playing with strategies, have ordered a course on Easylanguage.

I'm currently looking for Easylanguage code on setting up OCO bracket orders in order to have more control on what is generated. I'm aware of the Buy / Sell type functions available, and if necessary will develop using them. Was hoping someone had already worked it out and tested it.

Also intrested if anyone has tried Joe krutzinger trading systems for autotrading.

I have been trading for 13 years and som parts as daytrader. But Right now ´working as a Business Intelligence Consultant and trade more between prodjects or slow periods at work.

Based in sweden and want to network with people that trades for a living and want to share experiences.

Thats me
