Thanks, Mike!


Mike, thanks for making this forum. I've never traded before, but I'm excited and eager to learn, and this is just what I was looking for: a place with tons of information and a positive attitude.

I've been reading lots of books and looking at lots of online videos about day trading and futures, and it seems the mental or psychological aspect of trading is more important than any sort of fundamental or technical analysis, any chart or any tool.

Hello everyone,

I started trading about six months ago. I was trading momo stocks, and did well for a while. But I was stupid, unmature and emotionally underprepared so when I hitted a rather big loss I didn't know how to handle it and that one loss turned into a lossing strike, and in the end I almost blew up and lost money that I shouldn't be lossing.

I took couple weeks off, traded sim, read some books, reviewed my performance, found some problem, implemented my plan and now I'm able to make some money consistantly. But I only have 10k left, so only three daytrades a week, so I started looking at futures. Always heard future is more risky, but I think as long as I manage my risk and stick to a tested plan, go one step at a time, I will be fine. I learned from my previous failure and spent last two months trading sim, and developing a detailed plan.

I'm now able to profit consistantly in the sim and is looking to go live. Hope it'd work out this time.

Beginner Trader

Hello Everyone,

It's a pleasure to join an open community as I begin my new journey of Trading. I am a beginner and have taken an interest in trading because I enjoy finance related topics and economics. I have always taken an interest in the markets, but really have not had the time to commit to it due to my first career - US Marine. I am retiring from the military and would now like to pursue Trading full time and do well enough to make a living. We will see where it takes me, but my first goal is to supplement my income.

Ok... enough of that, I think others may have a similar story, but the real reason is I want to enjoy the freedom trading offers. I look forward to interacting with this community and learning the path the Trading Freedom.

Respectfully,
Big Al

Hello, I am forever SIM trader "SimLife".

Been watching trading stuff for years but a month ago I learned futures exist and I loved the concept of it so much that I abandoned, deleted, forgotten everything about forex/stocks/options/binaries/ and learning all about futures.

I am using a SIM account on NinjaTrader and using AutoTrader from Trading123. So far I'm doing great on SIM account.
Planning to go with Dorman Trading+NinjaTrader platform in 6months to 1year.
