Hi Mike...I just recently discovered your forum looking for information on Murrey math.
There is a very useful post in here. I trade the ES and want to also trade the Russell.
I use a combination of Market Profile, Murrey Math and trend lines in my trading method.
It's been a struggle in learning to trade this challenging market...but I am getting there.
it's great to have your generosity to set up the blog and take lead to contribute in different aspects. the blog is a gold mine and i am still digging into al's book after your positive recommendation. i am a newbie and have been looking into possibilities to build an automatic system that can prevent me from being too much affected by my emotions. Your NT-related postings helped me to lock focus on the commercial product which is fully programmable. (too bad it's not 64-bit compliant) However, the application is useless until there's good data source. With only a small capital to play with, i find it hard, if not impossible, to find a reliable FREE minute-by-minute historical data source to make any backtesting feasible.
Having lost a significant portion of my asset by shorting financials, i have stopped trading for over 1 year now. it's a sort of punishment to myself and i want to change my trading behaviors from relying only on intuitions to embrace more technicals...
My name is Mark Palangio, I live just outside of Toronto Canada in Mississauga, ON. I ironically found bigmiketrading.com from a Google search looking for the best times during the day to trade E-minis, as I am trying to write a NinjaTrader strategy. I didnít even know that Big Mike and the form is so NinjaTrader Savvy. For me this is great.
I am a partner in a small IT business and can program with some skill, however I wonít call myself an export in C# and NinjaTrader development as my programming skills are born from College in the early í80s.
That aside, I have been trading now for about 5 years and have lost more money than I have made, however, I keep trying to ďsharpen my axĒ and hopeful someday Iíll be able to make a living day trading. I read a lot of trading books and currently reading Al Brooksí book and one by Van Thorp.
Since last year I have been interested in E-mini trading and purchased NinjaTrader and a couple of system that I wonít mention. After again losing more money I shelved it (not blaming the system, but it was in my opinion very complicated with many indicators), but recently have become interested again trying trade E-minis and develop an automatic or semiautomatic system.
Finally, Iíve only spent about 15 minutes here on the bigmiketrading.com forum, but I like to thank you Big Mike for the open and positive approach.

I'm starting to learn how to trading and would like to get advice and assistance. I have few indicators that i used to use with Ninja 6.5 but made the mistake of migrating to NT7 and those indicators dont work with NT7.
I love this forum and people are so friendly.
I might request few indicators to be converted, so would like to say sorry in advane and thanks now.
Thanking you all for welcoming me here with open arms and looking forward to one day where i can say that i have learnt to program indicators and i learnt it from Big Mike Forum.
