Long time lurker, first time poster

Hello everyone,

I am Anagami, long time lurker, first time poster.

I started trading forex in 2005, stocks in 2008 (at a prop firm), and then moved on to futures in 2010 on my own. I am presently a CL trader (best instrument I found in 5 years), price action only, no indicators (makes my laugh thinking of 100s of hours I wasted with them early on... yet it was no waste, very valuable experience, a must for developing traders).

I use price action, TLs, pivots, fractals, and 'market logic'. I have an open setup that I trade virtually every day on CL. I also trade what AB calls L2 H2 setups, with occasional L1 H1 thrown in if I like it. These are my bread and butter.
Apart from these, I developed other stuff over the years, including an effective mean reversion setup... But not trading those, as I am focusing on my main plays (KISS, and do it well).

Anyways, whenever I searched and found anything of trading value online, it always seemed to come from the same place: futures.io (formerly BMT). What you have here is possibly the best trading online community. I want to be a part of that.

I had to look up CL - I assume you are talking about Crude Oil, but there is a stock called, CL, which is Colgate Palmolive.

What is TL? AB? L1, L2, H1, H2?

Thanks,

Brad from San Jose
