Hi all,

I am brand new here, but not new to trading. In the past, I have swing traded stock options and Forex, and day traded futures. I really want to learn to day trade futures successfully. I have attended tons of webinars and bought multiple subscriptions, but haven't been able to settle on any one thing. There's so much out there, it's hard to know what actually can work and what is just a gimmick. Just looking for some consistent day trading profits to supplement my income.

Hi there,

It seems I am a member for 1834 days already without posting anything. I think that's a record. LOL
So today is my first post.
I am wondering if there are also daytraders specialised in multiple timeframe trading in combination with sma's and swinglines to determine the ongoing trend in a choosen timeframe.
Perhaps we can share some trade ideas for the NQ and ES.
I spend already a lot of years to build my own strategy and placing a clear "(trail)STOP" was and is still the biggest issue. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Hello, I've been daydreaming for a few years. Been focused on learning options for the past 1.5 years. Read Lee Lowell's book and like to learn about selling puts on Futures. Right now I know zip about futures. I'll be looking for videos and info in general. Thanks

Hello,

I have been trading for about the last 9 months now. I have blown up so many accounts that I can't keep count now smh. I have been taking the time to work on my strategy and choose a product to trade that fits my personality.

I have been having some success just recently now that I've been taking the psychological aspect of trading more seriously and it's been helping tremendously.

I'm working on becoming better mentally and hopefully everything else will fall in line. Hopefully I can find some advice and guidance from more seasoned traders and grow on my trading journey.

Greetings from Victoria BC,

Im an 80-year-old Senior on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada
hoping to augment our pensions with some extra income through trading if
I can. I can afford to begin trading without fear of bankrupting us and would
start with the Micro E-mini offering from the CME.

Ive been studying day trading of the S&P 500 with the OpenTrader Portal of
Ziad Masri and Awais Bokhari for quite some time now and am keen to start
with an active account but am having some problems finding a broker for my
region of Canada; I would like to use a broker with a Canadian presence if it
is possible; perhaps Interactive Brokers would be a reasonable choice?

Any input, advice and assistance from Canadian members nearby who are actively
trading with a reputable broker would be greatly appreciated; I would like to use
Ninja Trader 8.0 if that is also possible as it would tie in very nicely with what
OpenTrader offers in the way of active daily support for their students.

Thanks for your time and consideration Mike et al.

Cybernara,

David

Greetings!

Like most everyone on this forum, I have spent a good deal of time, effort and coin over the years learning and practicing the fine art of trading unsuccessfully. (I've amassed a world-class collection of indicators and methods that work remarkably well in theory.) Now that I've retired from a glorious career in information technology and have some time on my hands, I've decided to give trading one more try. This time, however, I took the approach that if everything I did before failed, doing the opposite must succeed! (There's a Seinfeld episode that demonstrates the power of this technique.) With that in mind, I began training with an ex-institutional trader and immediately saw that everything I had been doing up to now trading-wise was, in fact, utter crap. Along with that, I found various enlightening resources on the Internet: No BS Daytrading, Jigsaw, Fat Cat of Wall Street (no kidding, the guy is amazing and funny as hell). All of which pointed me down the path of order flow, depth of market, balance and rotation, time and volume, etc. In other words: no indicators, trend lines, patterns, or mysterious levels that correlate to the rotational velocity of Saturn's rings.

I'm just wrapping up four months of intensive studying and am about to start what will likely be two months of review and practice (market replay analysis, sim trading with live market data). If all goes well, I expect to be trading with real money before the end of the year. I've yet to decide whether to pursue funded trading (that's one of the things I hope to learn more about here); I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

So yeah, I'm on the trading journey yet again, but I believe that I'm finally heading in the right direction. It sure looks different. It sure feels different. I'm forging ahead, and I'm happy to share my experiences with my fellow travelers.

Just don't ask me about the rotational velocity of Saturn's rings.

Regards,
El Duderino

Hi,

I am literally at my the end of my rope. Blew up my account and lost way too much. I am hoping I can regroup and start again learning from a community that hopefully welcomes new people with big problems.

I am relatively new to trading, started last year, and found my way to trading futures. My main goal is to trade ZB US Treasury 30 year bond futures.

Thank you,
Richard
