Basically what I am looking for someone to be able to chat with about trading in general, strategies, the psychology of trading, and in general just keeping each other honest on what they are doing and why. Something like the trading journals but more interactive. I am thinking of a combination of email and occasional internet chat via gmail or something similar during trading hours.
I am trading the mini dow through optimus trading, clearing through AMP, and using multicharts. I use very few indicators and and trade price action on tick charts with candlesticks.
Finding someone that is also trading the YM with more experience than me would be ideal, but someone with just a couple years of experience would be great too. I do have another job so I do not trade every day but I do have 12+ days off a month which are usually my trading days. On days I can't trade I still go over charts nightly.
I know there has to be some people out there looking for the same thing so drop me a note.
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?
