Hello guys, well I'm new here. I would really like to get into futures trading and I'm currently doing my homework trying to find a decent broker, platform and data feed which present itself both as difficult and unsatisfactory. But with the help of this forum I'll likely find answers to some of my questions.

Hi All.

Just saying hello.

Joined this site some while ago. Every now and then I return to have a quick look. I only joined to have a poke around and see what people are saying. But be truthful I am very surprised how different this community is to other blogs out there. It is quite refreshing…

I am an amateur trader. Initially started on the LSE with very poor results. The LSE is one market I cannot get my head around. So I moved to the Forex. I have tried numerous techniques with charts and an array of indicators. The whole time not making money but also not losing money. It seems my entry points are not the best. I appear to enter a trade at the wrong time, but I am able to exit a trade when the market goes against me so I don’t end up losing my trading capital.

So I've started looking at order flow. I’ve downloaded some of the Jigsaw tools, watch there webinars which in turn brought me to this site. So the plan is to learn how to use order flow which will then help me with entry points. Watch this space?

I do hope in the very near future I can give something back...

Best regards to everyone.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

About to start swing trading for the first time, in a partnership with my brother. I am an experienced passive investor, which does not in any way equip me for Trading!

We are planning to execute our strategy this week. The basics of our strategy is to choose a set of stocks to long and a set to short, with the aim of staying as delta neutral as poss.
Feels like it is a crazy investing world out there, so looking forward to reading, learning and sharing experience with you all!

Hello everyone!!! Beginner here!


Hello all,

I'm here to learn from you guys as well as put in the work needed to be successful. I've recently blown up two accounts and trying to get control of my emotions as a trader. I would like to learn more about algorithmic trading or auto trading. I know there are successful automated strategies out there and I would like to find a few that work well for me with my small account size. Trading these markets it seems is a hazard for me so far. I could really use some suggestions of strategies that truly work in the future as well as back testing.

Currently I am using tradestation to trade and just now learning easy language to program some trade strategies. I haven't found one that works though.

Thank you,
Jonathan
