G'Day from Perth

My personal circumstances have taken a 180 turn and I'm exploring choices that are there to secure my financial future, hence joining this group to learn about futures trading.
I've only done paper trading in stocks using IB.
Hope I will get some tips and tricks of the trade.
Thanks for having me.

Reply -Introduction

Hi All,

I've been trading for 6 years; options, starting with covered calls, then scalps, then spreads. Several mentors and systems, thousands won, then lost. 10,000 hours later, now have moved into futures ... think I can best put the various lessons to work in this asset class ... to be continued ...

Thanks for creating this site, hoping it will help once I pull the trigger to go live. I have been practicing for a few years now and could never get things 100% until recently when I realized I do not need to win 100% of trader to be profitable. Working with FOREX so if any one has advice feel free.

This site is so complicated I don't have a clue where to start. All I want to do is ask simple EL questions and not get a core dump from a pro. Yes I got several messages on how to use the Does it really have to be that complicated? Where can I just post a simple question?
