I'm new from Illinois too. NW Suburbs.


I started day trading in February 2012 so I'm very new too. Been working full time to get to this point since October 2011. Started with stocks but can't make enough money doing that so I'm switching to trading the ES through VanKar and FT71. I just completed setting up my software using Investor/RT Pro and getting data through DTN IQ Feed. Should be live on Monday but I have additional homework to do first before live trading later in the week.

What kind of trading are you doing now? You mentioned you are looking to be employed in the industry? What do you want to do? I can keep an eye out for you if I know more of what you want.

I live in Streamwood near the west end of the Elgin/OHare. Where do you live? We could get together for coffee and share knowledge.

Wanted to see if there was anyone who is in downtown Chicago. I live right by the John Hancock building. I trade futures and trying to build an auto-strategy. Would love to get together with those who are also in the Chicago area to talk about trading ideas and bounce ideas about how to trade better. You can also PM me as well.

Plan your trade and trade your plan.
