welcome,good luck,and keep it simple!

Thank you! I agree with you. With my experience I have come to conclusion that simplicity is the key. I found out that overcomplicating does not yield any real added value. The trick is getting rid of things that are mostly useless and the other trick is to find out what these parts actually are.

Welcome Silver84!

Hello everyone!

I wanted to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Silver and I have been interested in trading and investment since I was a teenager. I have some trading experience, but at the moment I am trading SIM, since the last time I was trading live (CFDs) I ended up loosing about 10-11% of my capital and I decided to put live trading on hold for while to try SIM trading. I found out about in Youtube and I really liked the material there. So I decided to join the forum two weeks ago and this is my first post. I am looking forward to educate myself and find other traders to talk to. I hope that my post will turn out ok, since I have no experience with forums before.


You should quickly see that becoming an Elite member is a good idea. I just had my first year anniversary on this site and without I would be really lost, as in lost a lot of money on not so well intentioned vendors and bad trades. I am taking things really slow and am comfortable with that. I wonder what all you think contributed to your losses??

BTW - this is my first forum, chat, and I don't do Facebook or twitter (well I just started twitter a little for trading), I have learned it is about soaking it in and contributing when you have an itch to, I have also learned two rules about trading and starting out: Be careful and Be efficient.

Best of luck to you,

Scary to here this story. It is good you have the courage to share and willingness to heed direction. As I beginner myself, I wonder what you attribute your losses to. Did you have a plan or did you just enter on whims, for instance?

It mostly was basic TA and Gut feel.

Hi everyone!

I am very new to the idea of futures trading, but would love to become successful at it. I have limited ideas on where to start. After reading a lot online and even throughout this forum, I am trying to avoid getting suckered into trading systems that are a waste of time and money. I am here to learn as much as I can!

Hi everyone,

I trade mostly US treasuries and am waiting for the FOMC meeting to be over. Ran across this forum so decided to sign up. Looks like a good place to trade ideas.

See you on the forums.
