New here, but not new to trading.

I've been trading for a couple of unprofitable years, figured I'd make an account here because the worst that'll happen is I'll lose more money!

I'd still consider myself a beginner because I'm unprofitable.

I don't use indicators, not even volume, and I prefer to day trade the morning session. My current instruments are buying calls/puts for SPY, QQQ, AAPL, IWM, and FB to name a few.

Hope I figure this trading thing out one day.

Curious, what is your trading strategy?

I'd say I don't have a strategy since I'm unprofitable, but it basically involves lines such as the Previous Day High, Previous Day Low, and Hourly/Daily/Weekly trend channels.

I plan on putting up a trading journal on here to hopefully get valuable critique about the strategy.

And my journal will be all paper trading.

Well, I guess we all start somewhere.

Yep.

I respond well to constructive criticism, and I'm hoping my trading journal (whenever I get around to doing that) gives me the feedback to turn me into a consistently profitable (albeit on paper...which I think I have the means to translate to real money) trader.

Thanks, though I hope nobody comes to me for knowledge/experience. I'm now taking a humbling approach to trading and hoping it turns me into a master.

Actually, now that I think about it, I'm going to use the MACD for intraday trading for my SIM trading journal (which is coming soon).

Of course you will. But you need to take it seriously. I would like to suggest you to find an appropriate broker and practice risk free trading through Demo and then enter the real world of Forex. I did the same about 5 years ago and faced many difficulty at first, but now I have found the best broker and I am earning a lot through him.
