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


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!

Glenn

Hye,

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

Take it as a a learning Cost not Lost. Hope this lesson will motivate you how to be more disciplined and knowledgeable. I would recommend you to read something about everything: technical analysis, trader discipline, market behavior, trading strategies, your platform features and how to benefit from its strength...etc
Good luck

Introduction

Hi, everyone in this private forum!!!
To be honest I have no idea what to anticipate from this group, but I can say what has brought me here. And that is struggling in trading, "seeking the lite" let's say, quest for my "holy grail" and the realization that "grail" is always within us, we just need to get ability to see it.
What was the road I passed in trading? I've started from Forex markets as may be most of us and still trying to grasp that tough business, I passed the way from losing trader to breakeven trader and never tried live trading, just demoing, the reason I couldn't get profitable even in demo trading. The method I used in trading and still sticks to is Price Action, let's say pure charts, no or minimum indicators and common sense. I don't have experience in futures trading and just know that trading in futures markets is slightly different from trading in Forex markets. I don't know which methods or strategies are taught in this private forum, but may be they will help to improve my trading and at last become consistently profitable trader and found new home in this community helping others with my knowledge and experience.
Anyway I'm willing to learn, teach me, guys and gals. I'm ready to do that hard job with your assistance and guidance.

Intro Hello

I've been trading stocks for 3 years with decent success. I'm looking to switch to futures, mainly ES and CL. With stocks, I would average holding a position for a few months. With futures, I'm definitely interested in day trading.

I have a M-F 8-5 job so I'm sim trading after work now using market replay with NinjaTrader for free. I can't install software on my work computer so I've been trying to find a good mobile app to use. I've also been thinking about using a remote desktop app to view my home pc from my phone.

Thanks for taking the time to read. I'm always happy to get any tips or feedback.

Hi all,

new to the forums, looking for information that's not constantly in a subtle/not so subtle advertisement.

Used to work for an asset manager but focused almost exclusively on ETFs, our group was responsible for best execution/product valuation - not something that helps too much with trading that retail does.

Always been interested in trading but I've yet to find my niche.


Looking forward to chatting!

Hello


Hello, Big Mike (and All).

Thank you for allowing me to join your community.

I am an on again, off again trader who has just traded equities. I have struggled with my trading consistency mostly because of a lack of dedication and partly due to being overwhelmed with the wide range of stocks. In this effort, I spent a lot of time (and money) on various on-line trading 'courses', to no real benefit (again, this is due to my lack of dedication).

With that said, I am getting real tired of having to work for someone else and so, I am using this as motivation to rededicate myself to trading.
I have become seduced by the allure of futures trading and was doing some research, when I came upon this site.

Having perused a few of the forums, I can see that this is what I was looking for (essentially a one-stop shop for my futures learning) and decided to become an elite member. I am excited to dig further into all of the forum discussions and see what wisdom you all have to impart.

Regards,
toneloc
