Amid The Many Mouse Clicks, Alas.. A Winning Trade
First off, I'd like to apologize to all of you master futures traders out there - I won't be donating to your profits with the same level of daily vigor and generosity from here on out. It would appear that my days of blowing up accounts are over, An expert at rapid drawdowns & depleted cash, I've decided to move on to perhaps... maybe making consistent profits ?<grin>.
More importantly, much respect to my first trading mentor for without him I wouldn't be here. Also my gratitude to Big Mike for what has become and essential forum and thanks to all contributing Expert & Novice traders that have brought forth the key questions we've all asked and the very helpful insight, charts, indicators, answers and solutions to those queries! You guys rock.
Forgive my late, very late intro... been busy trying to unravel the mysteries of ES, CL, GC, (and others).
NinjaTrader 7 my main tool - I will be looking to talk with folks who can code/ troubleshoot code. Currently exploring other platforms (Trading Technologies; S5BookMap, more) that Id like to discuss as well.
If you have thoughts/ideas on using Mac for trading, please send me a P.M.
Thanks in advance...
Hope my presence helps,
The following user says Thank You to EssDigs for this post:
i'm new here and have been trading stocks for a few years. i always hear successful traders say it's all in your own head to be successful and just wanted others opinions. i feel i have strict discipline and follow my rules all the time, but don't have consistent setups. so if i just keep getting stopped out of bad setups, i'm left with losing trades. just wanted others opinions on how they became successful. i trend trade and try to trade pullbacks and breakouts with momentum. i used many different indicators and none seem to be consistent. thanks
i looking forward to being at this forum and currently i trade future option and hopefully sharing some ideas with some experienced traders cause i'm still beginner in this field and i will try to help anybody once i gain more experience in traders.
I am a former market maker in US Treasuries at a number of large Banks/IB's none of which currently exist in their old names. Started trading Treasuries during the Volker era. Left the Street 10 years ago, started and sold a business and just started trading US Treasury Futures. I believe that there is and will continue to be good opportunities. My approach is to trade with momentum, mostly day-trading, if overnight I trade small. ZN, ZB, UB - mostly the last 2.
I'm Steve and I've been working diligently trying to build my own strategies before actually trading. I've had some success at writing the code and working through the challenges but I think I need help from those who are already doing it so, thank you for having me and I hope to learn as much as I can.
I entered the trading realm in 1990 as a hedger in the energy sector and from that start I became a broker for 10 years and a beginning speculator. I sold my business in 2004 and in 2009 moved to Colorado. I still day trade CL and YM. I was looking for an indicator when I discovered this site. That has been a while back and now I am stopping by more frequently.
Greetings traders. I'm glad I discovered futures.io. From what I've seen so far, I think futures.io will be a big part of my trading life. I've traded stocks and options non-professionally for over 15 years, and recently I've decided to make it a full time career/business to the shock and horror of friends and family. I quickly discovered that the transition requires a dramatic change in mindset and exponentially more discipline. I'm looking forward to utilizing the resources here at futures.io to help me stay focused and be disciplined. Cheers!
