Hey guys, I'm a 26 year old engineer who quit his job to learn how to trade. I took a trading course in my city and have been trading cfds for 4 months and will now be making the move to futures. I'm gonna start by only trading crude oil and will give it my all till I start making profits or go back to work, once my savings run out lol and trade part time till I become profitable.

My name is Mark and have been trading for the past 10 years or so but with little success. I have just recently become an elite member here in hopes to learn to develop my own way to trade profitably.
I am a chef and would really like to get out of the kitchen and hoping trading could be my way to a new career.
I do not take this lightly and am willing to give it all I have.

I have tried to use this but every time I click to open something I get a restricted access notification. Seems to me you're out to make money, not help.

Sorry, but I saw the value and joined immediately. $100 for a lifetime membership is nothing compared to the value elite membership has to offer.

I've been trading (futures) for a long time usualy equity indices and gold. Because I have a background in monetary economics one can understand since 1971 when the US went off the Gold Reserve Standard, the situation turned a lot of markets and I became an institutional bear, doing better in bear markets and terrible in bull markets. That bias has cost me.
Thus I am always ready to learn.

hi calgera1 - there are some threads which are restricted to those users who are subscribed to the premium access (Elite members).

Currently as a non-premium user you should have access to the vast majority of the threads though. See screenshot
Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

As you can see Elite-related content down at the bottom represents only a portion of content. Webinars and usually indicators I think are also part of the premium access but everything else is free.

So if you are trying to read something you should have no problem with most access.

Some threads or actions require that you post more than x number of entries before you can contribute to the thread (also be careful not to post junk just to boost up your post count as you may get banned), so it's a matter of finding something where you can either contribute or ask questions if you want to post. Otherwise you should be good to go.
