Hi, I have a couple of weeks to pass while I'm waiting for my new assistant to complete studying. He is due to help me focus on pure statistical approaches / money management etc. My developer (family member) needs to get well after an operation. Most of my work is bots lately but I want a break and get back to basics for a while.
Anyone with in any Future(s) experience and ideally an early riser who wants to collaborate? Some level of consistency ideally but maybe we can work on that if not? P.M. and we can chat. US opens at 9.30 am here in beautiful Medellin, I'm normally working at 6.30 am for the European session. Any time is fine really even if you can only trade two hours.
I have been live since August 2014 (5 months study before) and I can trade pretty well.
I'm mostly a structure/momentum trader but I have made money with almost everything except maybe Ichimoku (on my list to try) and straight DOM. I usually trade a 'naked' chart with minimal reference indicators. I'm early 40s and originally from Ireland, lived in the UK for years though. I have seen ~40 countries and so quite relaxed with people and cultures.

Just to add a note as it may benefit the community.
Although not inundated with PMs I have been in regular early morning (European session) contact with a member for a week. From my perspective this has been highly beneficial and I am glad I made this post. Teach a little, learn a little etc. I trade (successfully) across multiple markets simultaneously so a trading journal on FIO seemed impractical for me though the benefits are obvious.
My favorite author Douglas Adams said many times to the effect that answers are often easy however knowing the most important question to ask in the first place is the real trick in life (and trading). I have been reminded that speaking out loud while trading, vocally narrating one's trading plan is very beneficial.
We understand things far better if we have to teach them as we all know but even if alone, vocalising the trades as if explaining to another really helps close a loop. Highlight weakness in the plan's question, premise and answer.
