I forgot that 812 days ago I registered for this site.

I stumbled back here from a link and am pleasantly surprised that I have an account here.

I have been trading just about everything else since I left Futures behind all those days ago.

I have recently acquired a renewed interest in the Futures market, and I'm happy to be back here with all you fine people.

Hello, traders.

I have been subscribed to this forum for 1101 days and just posting my first message today. I know, I know, shame on me.

The fact is that, when I joined, I did it more out of curiosity about how traders from other planets (i.e. futures) view life. I had been a stock/options trader for a while and managed to almost blow my account until I decided to stop for over a year to regroup and focus on my day job as Software Engineer.

All that time I was a little hesitant of going into futures as I thought it was much riskier. This year I decided to switch gears and go head on to learn, read as much as I can, plan, and, to my surprise, profitably SIM trade for about three months now. Still making mistakes but disciplined to keep a journal so I can exactly put my finger on what I have done wrong.

I have been focusing more on learning risk management techniques as I realized that has been my Achilles heel all along so I plan to start live trading soon with very small positions.

Ok, that's it for now but hope I will be posting more soon.

Thanks a lot for the wisdom I have seen shared in this site.

Harmonics automation

Hi all, I've been trading forex now on and off for 5 years. Overall I'm 200% up on my
Original investment but not without a roller coaster of a ride. Im a little experienced in
Coding in the following languages c++, lua and pascal. I'm currently on the quest to write
a strategy for Harmonic pattern recognition and would appreciate any help or guidance along the
Way. I'm finding the the patterns very helpful in trading and as I'm working full time with a large
Family I see a great advantage in having the computer do all the chart scanning for me and
Send a notification so I can choose whether to pull the trigger or not based around market
Volatility and Conditions.

I've also like some others have been a member for 800+ days and can only apologise for not adding
My first post before. To be honest I have tried to but not found the site very Straight forward to use.
Maybe it's evolved slightly from those days and certainly the biggest reason is family time and distraction.
My apologies!!!

Hello everyone.
I am new to future trading but not new to trading in general. I am now starting to learn about future so that I will be able to trade with confidence. I will take it really slow before I jump in with my both feet in Futures. Peace!

I joined because I am currently doing what I can do find a suitable income stream using the network, ideas and knowledge wherever I can find them.

I have had some experiences with trading. Made money and then lost some in Stocks (1991), Indices(2001), Options (2002) and Forex(2007). Been looking for a better financial and personal solution.

I am just looking to make good on what I think can be done (trading for a living) and appreciate the people who have set up this forum for the many many sharings.

I am new to Futures and am interested in the emini S&P for now and am looking into a day trading strategy involving volume based chart.

Thank you and I hope to get to know more as I immerse myself more on what is happening here.

Wish everyone here well.

best wishes for you. Just get yourself on what contract is you are most familiar/ like to deal with because its behavior should not "surprise" you. If you like/ familiar with oil and gas and used to read about it, then that's your hunt. If you are in construction and familiar with steel and copper demand and prices, then that's your target and so on.
Good luck
