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 voted "Less experience than average".

My short reason is that this is probably the correct answer.

Maybe there is no correct answer?
As for my part I can not vote: The question is about comparing me
to the rest of all (formerly BMT) members here whom I don't know personally


PS: if every trader posting here transparently his trading results, that would make it
much easier to answer

I voted less experience too.
Started in stocks i 2005 ...had to use a couple of years to come up with a strategy that I could use.
Switched to forex and CFD's in 2012 ... but I only trade part time because my work takes a lot of time.
I have a felling there are many full time traders here with much more "screen hours" than me.

I ve choosed more experience than average not according the years I trade but according profit.
I was training half a year on several demo accounts almost every day and now I trade only a year as a intra-day trader every day. Week after week I have profit, sometimes its not much but better than negative balance at the end of week, right?

But probably I am somewhere between more and less than average according to years and amount of information which exists.

What I am looking in this forum is improve my win ratio above 78%. As intra-day trader mainly only with forex, commodities, futures I d like to expand to other markets with little bit of help.

I am excited from any new information about trading

I have about 15 years of idiot experience. I am a stubborn person. But I have about last 7 years of doing things the right way. So probably more experience than average but many years of stupidity.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
