Glad to get this off my chest

I blew up my account more times than I can remember. I have since reinvented my trading style and systems. I have read more mathematics books lately and I am looking to see what kind of styles people have been employing lately. I get a little stagnant in my bubble and am looking to expand my conversations.

VOLUME PROFILE.

Good Day Every ONE

I am James from South Africa and have been trading for the last fifty years.

I never made a profit until I came across a life changing book written in simple English by Dr Alexander Elder called Trading for a Living. Once I had followed his Triple Screen and Impulse systems I found things improved.

Then I read Phil Town's two books on valuing equities.

At the moment I am working on Volume Profile and Ichimoku analysis for Excel spreadsheet. I would value any assistance that one could give.

G-Day

Hi all,

Diversifying my 1 income stream risk existence, and thus have decided to start trading! One could argue, that the logic applied is flawed as capital will be placed at risk by such diversification, but alas, logic is not always empirical!

Chaos and randomness only appear as such until the fundamentals of a system are understood!

I am here to learn such decision support fundamentals!

Beer Cheers!

Newbie who took his first live trade today

Hello everyone! My name is Chuck and I work a full time job and literally just finished my first live trading session. I have been paper trading for almost a year now on and off. I use Ninja Trader 8 and trade only the S&P Emini for now. I would rather learn 1 market than confuse myself trying to trade multiple markets from the start. I closed my day today 220.00 in profits less commissions. Anyways, I'm thankful I found this group and hope to learn more as my journey continues. I started my account with 2133.00 and I think it will be interesting to see if I can slowly grow that over time. I also love using Renko bars for my charts. Thanks again for having me!

New Member Introduction


Hi guys, I thought its a good idea to introduce myself.
Professionally working in a mining business for about 12 years.
Been trading about 2.5 years part time, been losing all these times lol and I have enough of it, so here am I searching for a forum to learn anything that can help me to improve my trading and share with you guys.
I usually trade stock options, but honestly its either makes me a lot of money or loss a lot of money, and even I'm guessing it correct, the move isn't fast enough that I'm still losing at the end because of theta burn. So nowadays I'm interested learning about futures and where else better forum than in here to read and learn it.



Cheers,

Rintin2x
