Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Hi,

I started by swing trading triple wave system about three years ago. My first trade had more than 20% return. But after that I kept picking wrong cherries.

So I included my own indicator to the system. I kept tuned my system and run historical tests. I could get more than 90% winning rates. But in real life, it is a different story.

The frustration continued until I read Al Brooks's book and joined his webnair. I become a super Brooks fan. I did my trading completely following his method.

Now I scalp e-mini and AMZN.

Hi everyone.

I feel like I am the biggest misfit here.

I am a discretionary trader of small/micro/nano-cap stocks and otc issues. My only use for Ninjatrader is to record equities on Market Replay so I can get more experience and review my trades. The more advanced stuff isn't for me yet.

I also trade part-time, still an undergrad in college.

I'm glad that I found this site and to read stories of other traders who have or are still struggleling like me, I thought I was the only one so I'm glad to read about others. I'm making progress but trading is a long term business not a sprint I stick to my plan and targets and hopefully we all will succeed in this business, glad to be here thank you Mike for this site, bye for now.

Hi -

I've been trading forex about seven months. Before that I actively swing traded my stock portfolio. Now I hold individual stocks longer term (quarterly, semi-annually) Things are good with the stocks, but that money is for down the road. I started daytrading forex as a means of supplementing my income and possibly a new career.

I trade Asian session. One pair, EUR/YEN. I stick to price action and right now my focus is Al Brooks Price action methodology. I just discovered this about a month ago and it is golden, although confusing and so far it has led me to over trade. I need to work on that.

I am also trying to use Mark Fisher's ACD System witch is an opening range + volatility breakout system and a few other concepts like pivot points for determining key price levels.

I'm a little worse than a break even trader. Generally I will have a few very bad trades per month that keep me loosing. Still trying to turn things around.

From this site I hope to find some like minded traders and try to help when I can, learn what I can and share ideas.

Hello everybody

I, like many others have just enough experience to consistently not win often enough.

I am interested in learning ninja trader which I have been unable to master, but
believe is the best available product of its type

I (once again) have committed to living full time from trading and am 12 months
into the experience. fortunately I have another source of income tohelp support
me in my quest.

Makes me feel pretty inadequate but I live in Australia and most live training is
during my sleep time. Am looking for better things here.

Also forex news trading interests me so hopefully some other members
also follow this rather bizarre form of trading

Am looking to giving and receiving here.
Receiving some practical ninja trading and my knowledge develops
giving insight and experience to all other interested members

Happy birthday to Mike and the team

Intermediate trader?


I guess I would be considered an intermediate trader if one counts the number of years trading. I really feel like a beginner most of the time, because there is so much to learn. I've heard it said that trading is simple but not easy. I guess that has to do with controlling one's emotions and mental errors. I Joined Big Mike's to help me find whatever it is I am lacking that is keeping me from being successful. Who knows, the key may be within myself.
