Newbie Anxious to Learn and Contribute

Hi Big Mike and All,

I was recently forced out of an LLC where I was an executive and minority shareholder.
My vision is to self-direct all my investments and retirement funds; as well as generating income by disciplined well thought out methodology.

One of my accounts will be for futures trading and other more aggressive stock swing purchases. I have accounts with TOS and Vanguard. Recently, I purchased futures trading software from Champion Setups- MFT Pro. I am also a student of Hubert Senters, and a follower of Ichimoku cloud trend trading.

Currently, I am working on crafting a trading plan as well as a business plan. It would be great if I can obtain some input from other members who have similar experiences. I'm thankful I ran across this blog by accident, and look forward to learning from more experienced traders who may be willing to help.

Thanks for your warm welcome,

Dave

You are best off starting a journal. This will attract more people to your question and get you answers.

If you REALLY want to learn, join the Elite.

Like I said in the previous post, you will get much more help if you create a journal.

In your journal people will be able to better understand your situation and can better assist you.

Good luck!

New to NT

Hey Mike, Everyone,

First of all Thanks for the forum and site, glad I found it when I was doing a search for how people like Dorman linked with Ninja Trader.

I'm just at the beginning phase for downloading NT. I've joined a subscription service for chart info, and they only run on NT 7 so I need to either Buy the platform or the license. I've downloaded it before but couldn't get into using it. I want to avoid that happening again.

I have been trading off and on since l 2007. When I started during the big dip and the financial crisis and BP Oil Spill it didn't go like I thought, and I blew through a bunch of money, then I started over and decided to trade options and blew through a bunch of money there. Those hard experiences taught me difficult lessons about what I could and couldn't do as a trader. After taking some time off and going back to work, I've been trading profitably for nearly a year, but I still have a long way to go towards consistency and better trade management. I trade Options, Futures, and Stocks with TDA on the ThinkOrSwim Platform. I still work a full time job at a desk as an estimator for a supply co that specializes in construction material. They understand my primary concern as a trader and do not have an issue with me running my set up at work as long as I complete what is necessary for them. I've tried to trade from home, but that wasn't as fulfilling as I expected.

Looking forward to participation,

Regards,

Kevin B
