Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Another Newbie Thread

Greetings to everyone here at BTM.

I have been "trading" stocks since May of this year (notice the quotations as my definition of trading is a loose one). I don't want to really start my first thread ever by posting a bunch of dumb questions, but I am sure I won't be able to help myself. From the reading that I have done, there seems to be a lot of the posters stating that there are tons of great info on this site, which is very exciting, as I am all ears to learn whatever I can. Big Mike recommended trading ETF's in another thread if you are a beginner, which is certainly what I am. I like stocks, but I would prefer to trade something that may be slightly more technical in terms of analyzing charts, moving averages, data in general, etc, as when trading stocks I don't typically do much data analysis outside of looking briefly at balance sheets, earnings reports, etc. Other recommendations on things to trade that are more technical outside of ETFs? E mini futures seem interesting, but Mike suggested shying away from futures if you are a beginner.

Anyway, I wanted to keep it brief. I look forward to any comments and l also look forward to future discussions and learning from everyone in this community.
