Thanks Big Mike. I was told this is a great site for traders. I've traded for about 5-years and am spending more and more time trading using Market Profile. I use NinjaTrader and TradeStation right now for my charts. I generally use TS for longer term charts and than just have the basic data Zen-Fire through my broker for NinjaTrader. I'm always looking for a better Market profile indicator for either software charting package.

Ok I've talked to much. Thanks again for having a great site and I will be spending a lot of time getting comfortable here.

I got the nickname for all the riding I've done over the years. I have a 2002 Road King Classic and I try to ride it as much as I can in Minnesota.

I've traded FX for 1 year and have realized that I must manage myself in order to not loose (more) money.
I do see this as a blessing in disguise since I have started to discover parts of myself that influences and even controls my trading activities - parts that everyone that tries trading seem to have but that few come to terms with.

Biggest hurdle so far is pride, laziness and some lucky trades in the beginning (partial reinforcement at work).

Presently I have a 95/5 split about market data/myself data and I want to flip that ratio to 5/95 and the slowly increase market part when I am more familiar with myself.

Current mantra: Never move stops to increase potential loss.
