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."
