Like a real newbie i posted the following to the wrong place



Now you got it right! I look forward to more of your posts, and don't worry about being a noob. Just ask your questions and everyone will try to answer, some of them are best asked in the Chatbox on the main index page, some of them best asked on the forum. We'll let you know and with time you'll figure it out

Hi Yiman,
Best of luck and welcome.

I'm new to this site, also; and it's the best treasure I've found. Study, share and be patient. Big Mike suggested I learn stuff from the psychology and money management section, so I did.

Be sure to check it out. I never realized there was really valuable stuff to learn there.

Good luck and good trading.
Ray

Welcome Roger
I'm new here too. There sure is a lot of stuff to learn here.
Sorry to hear you burned out. Been there, done that; more than once.
I hope to post more later in the NinjaTrader section.
As I mentioned to Yiman, Mike suggested that I read the Psychology and Money Management section, and I learned a lot when I did. Try it. It's worth your time.

Hope everyone had a safe and happy July 4th with their family!

Fellow traders:
If you are struggling to make money, then I encourage you to watch my latest video in the Downloads -> Educational section. Some of you have told me you did not know how to watch the videos, so I included instructions now.

Happy trading,
Mike

Thank you Mike for creating this wondeful venue. I have been at this for the last five years and I cannot still call myself a successful trader. I think I have experienced everything all my fellow traders have posted in their introduction. What I have come to understand and realize is that trading is all about me not a magical indicator, system or guru. So I have stopped looking for the magic outside of myself. I have simplified everything, threw a couple of lines on my charts using the tools you graciously provided such as Double Ma and the Zerolag MACD and that is about it. I am scalping the euro currency futures with this simple system and for the first time trading has become less stressful.

Hi Graziella
Welcome, and it looks like your on your way.
I'm new here too. You won't believe that I have been struggling for over 40 years with this, but also feel fortunate to have found this site.

Anyway, when I originall signed in, Mike told me to check out the information in the Psychology and Money Management section. Which I did and got a lot of good information that I didn't realize I should be considering.
So I recommend that you check it out too.

Best of luck,
Ray

Glad to join a community that shares ideas! I have been trading for a little over a year, started off making quite a bit of money - but money management wasn't my best spot. I have since started taking time to make trades and not over trade, I am learning by not losing right now and keeping even and learning my own style. I am investigating trading futures (only 1 contract with a minimum goal of making 50 dollars a day minus commissions). I want to learn to trade minimum, no leverage, and play this game smart until my skills grow to where I feel comfortable. I have traded stocks, based on value, news, indicators, and speculation - I think futures trading will be where I settle as its one market to learn, one equity your trading (es and ym in my case) and allows one to focus. I am a scalper by nature.
