Hi everybody,

I'm an industrial engineer working in Spain, as many of you I have a decent job that I like and that is reasonably well paid BUT I have the feeling I'm not a free man, my main reason to be a trader is not trying to be rich, by a boat and this kind of things, my main reason is to try to be free, to work for my own, to manage my time, etc.

I have been trading some periods of time during the last 2 years, I haven't lost all the money in my trading account but I had the security that if I continued trading the same way I would lost all the money in the account, that's why since 6 months ago I started studying and trying to achieve a more "scientific" approach, I'm quite happy with my progress at the moment but I know I still have a long way to walk.

I'm willing to share knowledge and experience with you guys!

My name is Ray, and I felt I better put in a welcome message before the forum scolds me about being here so long and not posting a message ;-)

I have been trading for over 30 years as well as being a programmer for over 30 years as well. So as far as trading and programs, I can pretty much say, "Been there, Done that". I am retired now and have a bit of time on my hands. I will shortly actually start to share some goodies that I have and perhaps some that I am currently working on. Darn, the forum doesn't have best indicator/whatever for 2015 or 2016... Oh well, I guess we will have to see

Have a Profitable Day!

Cool, excited to see what you have to share Ray

Me voila

Hi Guys!

I am from France and have never traded before (almost never as my timid attemps to make money in the middle of 2008 swept away by the great sub-prime crisis)

For one year, I have been reading various books on finance, investements, tradings and differents quantitative and statistical methods.

Soon I will jump in trading full time with a small account to learn and will be participating to discussions in order to more motivated and involved.

That's all for the moment.

Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone, I'm so glad to have found this site. I just joined elite and now I want to introduce myself. I was a former day trader in the time period 2000 to 2004 and blew out all my accounts. I've read that in a few threads so I'm glad I'm not the only one. In any case, I took a much needed hiatus to repair the family and get back on my feet. Now, I'm ready to get back into trading with a fresh new outlook and better attitude.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading many of the journals. They give me hope that I can do this. I've read about many different strategies and I can see that many of them can work, but the strategy has to be paired with the personality.

So, I'm in the learning and research phase. I'm also at the stage of information overload (but in a good way) and now I'm trying to sort through how best to accomplish my goals. So, what are my goals? I want to get good enough through practice that I can enter the TopStep trader combine and eventually get funded. I want to get good enough so that I can afford to quit my regular job and devote full time to trading.

I look forward to reading more of the journals. Thanks for letting me be a member of this community.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for your personal introductions and ideas respectively given insights into your experience! Very interesting and partially enlightening to (personal) success factors.

My first impression is that many members here are high involved in trading. Great combination! Nice community!
