I trade for about 25 years on and off, and now I can say I am steady, consistent, and do very well for myself.

Your trying to pick the winner is not easy, but one thing I can tell you, do not to take too many at once. I myself use Micro and Mini Index futures as I found these the easiest of them all. Only 4 chars to look at, getting to know only 4 different lives is easier than trying to scout for 100's different symbols and getting to know them, With time you will see how good you are getting to know your children and how they behave.

So do not take too many is my advice, stick with what you know and stay with it, greed can make you jump through too many hoops at the same time, a steady flow of income is what I achieved with just using 4 and can play tennis at the same time (live, healthy body, etc...)

HI All,

I'm new to trading. I recently downloaded and set up NT8. Before i start using actual money, i want to make sure i have a working strategy, be it manual or using an automated strategy. I've been reading quite a bit of info here on this site as well as many others. I look forward to digesting all i can.

Hi everybody,

I have a long-term investment portfolio and would like to learn more about trading. I have tried options and lost some money and caught a few swings with MCL. No major losses however.

Most interested in ES, CL and NG but there's a slight problem since I'm working late hours as RE fund MD in Europe, meaning I can only catch the afternoon session.

Futures are very intimidating and I'm not sure if it's actually the right thing for me. I know who are on the other side of my trades and I don't know if I can ever beat them at their game. However, I'm willing to give it a good go.

My risk management and psychology should be in a lot better shape compared to my TA skills and general feel for the price action. So, this is something that I would like to learn the most from here.

I use IB as a broker, platform and data, and it's a pain in the ass for technical analysis. Considering learning Sierra Charts. Any advice on beginner setups would be highly appreciated.

Welcome @ssild

As for a platform suitable for techical analsys I am sure people will provide their view on what they find useful.

What I could suggest if you are pushed for time is to look at platforms that provide market replay capabilities, so that you don't have to be necessarily in front of the screen as and when the action takes place.

Instead you can replay any day at any time of your choosing. Depending on your trading style this may or may not be helpful to you.

Good luck!
