What games do you play? I was actually thinking of taking up computer games to improve my trading. Most of my entries call for a market in so I need to be quick, in my mind I am on the floor viewing the price action and I need to be as fast as I can be. I wonder if gaming would help improve my performance? I think it would be fun tom do as well.

@Rayzor

I play quite a few titles just on my PC offline.

But the main game I play online is "Battlefield: Bad Company 2." I have a few people I play with. It's a blast!

I don't usually play too often on weekdays, but on some weekends I will get a few hours in.

I played Battlefield 2 a lot online a few years ago. I will probably get Battlefield 3 when it comes out later this year.

Xbox Full House Poker, 4,000 people in the tournaments on Tuesday and Saturday. Just finished a tournament where I got jipped out of a 1 MM pot with pocket Aces. Was beat by pocket Queens which turned to trip Queens on the flop.

Other than that, not much other than the occasional Tiger Woods on my PS3.

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? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Yeap, Battlefield 2 was great. It is still my all time favorite online multiplayer game.

I didn't played with it these last few years, but I can remember some nice rounds, large online battles with 4 or 5 IRL mates, a lot of fun.
I think 'm too old for this now, but I've just watched BF3 trailers, and it looks very good, and I will maybe buy it too.

@sam028

You're never too old!

Yeah.. Those BF2 battles where sometimes EPIC! I was totally immersed in that game. Me and some guys rented servers that where costing quite a bit monthly, I was gaming with a clan on TWL for fun, website, whole community.

My grades suffered tremendously due to that game.

BC2 is really a good game. It doesn't have the big scale feel to it that BF2 had, but it is still the best FPS/online shooter out at the moment, and is visually beautiful.

BF3 I hope brings back that huge scale battle feeling to it, and from what we've seen and heard, it will do just that!

By that time, maybe a few guys from futures.io (formerly BMT) would like to play a few nights a week?
