Hallo all,

finally I got time to introduce myself.

I entered the Trading world 2 yeras ago. At that Point i didnt know what Futures are or what bid and ASK means, complete noob.

I bought a course where i learned the basics about Market Profile, Volume Profile, footprint and some candle Stick Setups. I studied IT for around 6 Month.

But this didnt Work Out for me. Looking Back, IT hast been either a Lack of Screentime./ Experience and of course Patience.

I then got Access to a Coaching with more depth in Volume Profile and Market Profile.
Also the orderbook was used to enter and Exit Trades.

At that Point i alredy had Developer a better understanding of the "Market".
And a very Basic understanding of Absorption and different es in Action processses Reading the orderbook.

But again something hast still been wrong. Some good days some good Trades butbalso complete Desaster. Actually I never asked myself why I struggle or what i News to do.better. I Just continued.

At thisnpoint I had been in the Game for 1 year.

I joined a patreon with the Sole Focus on 1 Minute Footprint scalping.
I thought I finally.found my Style and Had some profitable streaks. I Trader Like this for 1/2 year and got a decent understanding of the orderflow in the Footprint.

I finally Made my First Funded Account with a prop firm and lost IT in the First day.

At this Point there was No room for any excuses. I was abvious that after 1 1/2 years I
have enough "technical" knowledge and enough Market understanding/Screentime To be profitable. And I have been for short periods Like 1-2 weeks. The reason for Failure hast been my inability to Stick to my Trading Plan/strategy.
And the inability to managebmy mindset/Emotionen while trading. And of course habital Pattensen in my eeveryday Life aswell.

Finally after 1 1/2 years I Starter to ASK myself what i need to fix/do to succeeed.
I Started to get knowledge about psychology,mindset and managing of emotions in Trading.
I realized that in the fast 1 min scalping strategies ITS was Harder to maintain focussed and emotional Control. I still think that my scalping strategy IS the lowest variance and Most consistent strategy I am able to trade, but IT IS also the mental/psychological Mist difficult to master. So I went Back to First strategy approach I have been learning. Where I execute from a 3 min. time frame in predefined Locations Matching the preanalysed Market context. This doesnt require fll Focus and emotional Control all the time, Like the scalping. IT gives me.more room to observe myself. IT aso hast very vlear Rules for entrys and stops. This. Makes IT obvious when I don't Stick to the plan. And I can Catch myself in time.

Sorry for all the typos from my german Auto correct Phone. Will BE better in the Future when I Post yfrom PC.

I am Happy to diwcuss and Share and learn about:

Emotional Control
Trade Journaling
Building consistency
And so in...

Feel free Auto contact .me

Hi everybody,

maico75 here from Canada.
Been trading for about eight months, mostly SPX Options and now learning Futures.
I did not have a great start, but I am learning how to get better every day, and that's the thing that makes me love trading, you are never at the end of your journey, learning one more thing makes you better on the next trade.
Look forward to sharing and reading from other options and futures traders, and give back to the community also!
