Introdution

Hi everyone,

I'm Bruno Calhiari from Araçatuba region, São Paulo state, Brazil. I'm graduated as mechatronical engineering and after finding no decent job I learned about trading, then after a couple days reading about it I learned about futures trading and my world completely changed. I started to study this and at the same time trying to rise money for the margins, and now, 1 year later, I already learned about technical analysis, price action and order flow. I'm sticking with order flow analysis, and I'm starting to feel ready to get into the game.

Found this blog while watching some videos from OFA, and I intend to share knowledge and experience here, as well as know other traders from around the world.

Futures Trading

Hello Mike, I have been a member until now in name only. Today, I decided to take the next step with this site. Thanks for inviting me. My past history in futures trading is a broker, CTA, weekly newspaper, daily trade hotline and analyst for several firms. The new technology is now. It is very interesting to say the least.

Hi all,

I have broke 3 accounts already during my journey, the last one was 3 months ago
At this moment I realized I need much more preparation and discipline development
I am currently watching the Jigsaw DOM on a daily basis and every day I see things I didnt see before

About Futures.io, definitely think everything I want to know about futures trading I can find here

I am really glad to be part of this fantastic community,
Thanks to all members for the help provided
Thanks Mike for the great work

Good trades

Hello,

If members need any help, I would be glad to provide assistance.

Day trading since 1998

Prop firm trained... Navillus Securities, 1998-2000 NYSE Stocks only... Tape Reading, no charts.

Bright Trading 2000-2003 SPY and QQQ,,, Tape Reading

2003 - 2018 current.... Day Trading ES only, home office

Please read Trading in the zone before you fund any new accounts, after you finish that book for the second time start with a basic Pullback strategy using tick charts, using fibs and a couple MAs nothing more if you can become consistent with that then incorporate Jigsaw and other tools as you see fit, best of luck on your journey

Personal re-boot, Trading 2.0

Hello all,

Lee here, and having traded the ES for the last few months am in the early stages of of a complete re-boot.

Jobs in progress:

1. Platform change from TOS to NT
2. Learning to better use and understand the DOM
3. Changing completely my approach/attitude toward my work day, from a little frantic about maximizing each moment
of the current volatility to a calm and reserved approach to a lifetime business of learning and personal development

I'll be a month or two in the sim learning the new platform and DOM, and practicing the teachings of Mack, Weis, Elder and Brooks.

Backing up a bit; I am retired military, and a s a medic/firefighter had an approach to life that was a little ballsy and head/body strong. Funny how that does not work for me here…

At all.

In my early experiences trading, I have found that my bad habit development speeds have been stunning. So, it's nice to be good at something. Also, making good trades (mostly) and taking points Monday through Thursday only to lose most of it on Friday has been a true test of my sense of humor. In short, there are some things to fix, rules to rewrite, and better habits to cast in stone before I go back to trading live. That, and maybe I start taking Fridays off.

Interesting that this is so much more than learning to trade…

It's a lifestyle of improving my:

1. Organization
2. Eliminating waste, clutter and excesses (mental and physical)
3. Mental and physical fitness
4. Stress management practices
5. Sleep discipline
6. Personal finance management
7. Personal time management
8. Personal and lifestyle discipline

Asking myself to change completely all of this overnight is folly, so what began as an opportunity to make a few handfuls of cash has evolved into a beautiful career of lifetime learning and incremental personal development.

I’ll be darned…

Thank you all for being here, and for the incredible information and resources you share in this forum. I look forward to getting to know you better.
