Hi AtuttoGAZ, welcome.

Do you find that your scientific background has helped your trading? Just curious.

Hello everyone!

I have registered in 2015, since then have read almost everything in free section, was planning to become Elite member for a long time already.
Now it's time to upgrade my membership!

This forum is a great resource. I have learned a lot from it.
I would like to say thanks to Big Mike and all old squad core members (Fat Tailz, Zondor, Cory, Gomi, etc).
I'm looking forward to being a part of it and gaining more knowledge from it.

As for myself, I've been trading for 2 years already.
Trading half time now, but thinking to switch to full time soon.
Trading CL/RB/NQ/6E in semi-automated mode.

I'm hoping to learn more about neural-network trading and advanced automated strategies using NinjaTrader.

Hi AtuttoGAZ, welcome.

Do you find that your scientific background has helped your trading? Just curious.

Yep!
At Pisa Univ. (Physics dept.) econophysics course was available (probably it is still available). But you can draw fully from courses like Fourier analysis, condensated matter, theory of quantum (and non-quantum) gases and quantum field theory in general.
If memory serves, a professor of structure of matter (I don't remember his name becuase I wasn't in his class) had a collaboration with Soc. Generale. So Physics dept. at the Univ. of Pisa has a quite good tradition of relationship between Finance and Physics.
Being a high energy theoretical physicist (leptons, quarks, gauge and non-gauge bosons, string theory and so on), I 'see' the chart as a 'wave' rather than as a 'gas'. So Fourier, Mandelbrot (fractal geometry) and obviously quantum field theory are three pillars of my recipe for trading.
I think the most important lesson my background every day teaches me is: the importance of time when you trade futures (but also stocks). Probably I am writing trivial words. In the end a trader has got only three information items: price, volume (or # of contracts) and time! Everything else (like indicators) is son of those three numbers.
Here, but on the internet in general, there are traders with a much longer than me experience but rarely I read the importance of time as a tool for trading.

My two cents
Greetings

Hi all,

I started trading stocks back in 2012, then got into forex. At first I was focusing on indicators and smaller time frames. That was possible when I was still in unisversity. I am trading higher timeframes now, to see money flow and also due to having a full time job. I registered with futures.io back in Sept 2015 and explored the free section. I wanted to become an elite member back then but moved into other fields of research like price action, wave theory and C and Python. Now I feel ready to delve more into futures.io.


Best

New to futures


Hi to you all,
I'm a long time trader in stocks and forex, now looking at getting into systematic futures trading and also futures options (discretionary). Planning to use Tradestation, at least for the systematic part.
Happy trading!
