Introduction

My name is Christopher. I am 20 years old. I've been trading for about 6 months now. My background is in IT and development. I've started web development when I was 14 designing pages for bands on MySpace. Then once I was older, I moved on to server maintenance, API config, etc.

I've been interested in the markets since I was about 17 years old. When I was 19, I moved out of state and met a good friend who trades as a hobby. So I began trading on sim. I didn't have any charts and was pretty horrible. Then I spent 12+ hours every day I had no plans watching webinars on Big Mike's YouTube channel. I've also watched Al Brooks seminars on YouTube at least 10 times. I began trading in equities with a prop firm, but have been all futures while participating in TopStepTrader for the past 2-3 months. I came close to passing my first combine although exceeded their daily loss limit on my 18th day. Now I'm in progress on my second combine and my only revision is to use AOCO orders so I won't make the same mistake again..

I hope to find some informative threads on this forum to keep my mind fresh. I'm always open to new ideas. I was actually wondering if anybody could suggest me a good video on the basics of volume delta. I've found a few but their examples and explanations looks nothing like the delta indicator for my platform. I use T4 Platform.

FYI, both Al Brooks and TopstepTrader have nice discounts available to futures.io (formerly BMT) Elite Members. Among many others.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Some of Al Brooks futures.io (formerly BMT) webinars are the best.

I highly recommend his Price Action course and generally emailing him. He is very good at talking with people via email.

Become an Elite, opens up some core threads that are really good, along with some of the best free indicators out there, and then there is the discounts you receive.
