Introduction

Hi all, I experienced trading in Indexes and Forex about 7 years ago. Having blown up my capital then, I stopped trading. I believe, with age and experience, I am more sensible and stable now to start trading again. And, here I am.. Looking forward to getting some nice ideas and guidance here..

Introduction

Hi, I'm just another newbie dropping by. I'm totally new to trading futures and am currently trading on demo with NinjaTrader 8. While I have had a background trading stocks in an Asian market, and some forex, I feel like futures is a bit different an animal to the other two. I've been interested in trading commodities for a while and I'm guessing futures is one way to trade them? I decided to create an account here so I can have some guidance on where to start, and also develop strategies to trade futures using NT8.

Thank you, Mike, for creating this forum!

Just learned about this site and thought it could help


I achieved FIRE last autumn - I walked out of a high paying job because I valued my efforts more than my employer unilaterally decided. But, I could only do that because (despite having made and lost hundreds of thousands) I was confident in my ability to make my money work.

I've traded NG a LOT (huge win for me was the Mar/Apr 2018 spread when it got mispriced at -.6x and rode it down to -.28), CL and BZ a bit (usually the intercommodity spread rather than either/or), the occasional foray into KC, LE, etc. But, my main focus, the one that's taking me to the promised land, is the VIX. 9 times out of 10 I'll take the short vol play and even on that rare occasion where I go long vol, it's with a lot less capital.

This is what I'm teaching my kids because I believe that, appropriately managed, this will lead them to become FI a good 10 years faster than I did.

G'day all,

I just wanted to introduce myself per the email suggestion. I am brand new to Futures trading and got into it from a recommendation by a friend. I opened a small account through TradeStation and using their platform. I randomly came across this forum and hope that it will be a good place for me to ask questions and learn.

Thanks

Just wanted to thank Big Mike and all participants for the opportunity to interact with you on the site.

My experience is very much like Big Mike's comments about large losses-----but the tenacity and persistence to keep at it. To give credit where credit is due--Mark Cook was very helpful to me in one of those dark hours--and I would like to thank him as well---

Hope to interact with more of you soon---Dylan
