Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I completely agree with everybody who is saying to think big, have a vision, a goal, and take it one step at a time. There's nothing wrong with marketing but if that's not what you want to do in the long-term, then why? There may be a reason but you need to ask yourself what it is. Totally agree with getting into the field that you want to be in now.

I'm past the mid-point of my life and if I have any regrets, as well, it's when I didn't pursue my vision and do 100% to achieve it. Now, I've done a lot and intend to do still more. I've quit many jobs and travelled and am doing what I enjoy.

Think about what you really are passionate about and what you want to do in the long-term. You need to be passionate about it because, if you're not, you will not do it well enough to excel. And that's what you want to do, excel, to have the most fulfilling life you can have, and enjoy what you're doing.

It's good you're thinking about this when you're young. If you can work and excel at your passion when you're young, you have so many more years to do even more and branch out to new and bolder things.

Good luck,

I am sorry Guys

Hello again ,

i have been off lately for some personal reasons , i am sorry i didn't reply though you have been more than helpful .

In the last few month i figured out what i really wanna do . following my passion i have been planning to leave my work as a

Trader in the Egyptian Stock Exchange ( Executing orders for Institutional clients) ,and i will start my career in managing

money , knowing it isn't an easy thing to do made me start thinking harder and trying to figure out how to get started.

In 2 simple line :

1) Performance Recording

2) Studying (Series 3 , CMT ) , testing and developing strategies , gaining skills ( programming , networking , business development)

I will leave current Job 1st of April , I know that (formerly BMT) is an added value for me so i wish i can return that back .

Many Many Thanks
