Future daytrader in futures :-P

My name is David and I'm from Spain. I am starting to study trading (although I have already done several courses) and I am in the simulation phase.

I have experience in investing with long-term stocks but I want to learn future daytrading.

I have come to this forum because everywhere they comment how serious it is and the great information it provides.

Finally say that I hope to contribute my little grain of sand.

I've been in and out of the investing world for about 4 years. Prior to even entering a position, I get hit with information overload and analysis paralysis. I freeze and never make a move. By joining I hope to learn from real life experiences from people just like me. Hopefully one day I'll be able to help someone else.

E-Mini Futures or Bust

Hey everyone,

I am like a number of people here, and have dabbled in the market on and off for a while. I realized needed to either fish or cut bait. So fishing it is. Futures trading is a whole new world to me and I look forward to learning all I can from the many knowledgeable members of this forum. My first goal is to read everything I can and ask as many questions as allowed. Thanks for allowing me access to this great group.

Found my home in Futures

Hi everyone - I'm excited to be here! Got my start in crypto (I have a technology background), moved to options and forex, then finally found my trading home in the futures markets. I fell in love with futures as they encompass all I love about trading. Still learning a lot of course, and hope to continue that journey here.

A BIG Hi from Houston, Tx

Hello everyone,

I'm a beginner and currently paper trading on futures/currency/stocks. I'm currently under the mentorship n learning the pattern recognition trading of Larry Pesavento. Since I fired my boss last year n moved back to Houston to care for my mom, I have turned to commodity trading. It's one of my dreams to be a professional trader since my 20's and also have financial independence n freedom. I wanna be like Big Mike as well being able to traveling around the world.

Trading can be a lonely profession and I wish to establish any online connections as well as with local traders in Houston. Let's share n have the fun n excitement together.

I'm currently also searching for a good automated trading system and financial astrology softwares. I know it's a bid early for me to do that but I wanna start my research early. Any comments/suggestions/guidance are highly appreciated.

Please feel free to say hi! Thanks so much for reading my post.

Ted :-)
