I am Maurice and I live in Spain. I enjoy the beautiful weather here and used to trade Forex and the E-mini.
I quit trading two years ago, closed my accounts because I didn't have much time to trade. But now things have changed and I want to start all over again and do it different.
I want to learn. In fact I am eager to learn. The thing is that many so called experts ask 4K or more for their strategy before you know if actually works for you.
I have searched the forum here but couldn't find what I am looking for. I am looking for a good strategy for trading gold and the ES. I've read several 'reviews' and comments on certain strategies, but most of the comments say that there are 'better' strategies out there. (or even here). Still I haven't found them.
I want a good trading strategy for gold and/or ES, combined with sound money management.
