Should I be here?

I notice that most traders using the forum use NinjaTrader for trading. IsBig Mike's Day Trading Forum Mostly for NinjaTrader users? If I'm scalping or swing-trading using other techniques or strategies should I even be here? I found the site while searching for "Day Trading Journals" on Google.

The forum was "seeded" with a bunch of NinjaTrader users. But the forum has a good number of traders using other platforms, and most of what is discussed applies to all forms of trading whether it be futures, equities, etc.

Always looking for more traders who are swing traders or trading stocks, so I hope you'll stick around and participate.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I have not used NT in over 6 months. Currently I only use thinkorswim...and use their data. Several reasons 1. no monthly cost for platform or data 2. Allows me to use Ubuntu operating system . I use very few indicators (inside bar, yesterday close/high/low and today's open and sometimes a Keltner Channel)

This site has a very big tent where folks use entirely different methods, platforms, brokers and trade various markets. There is room for all. Information is freely shared with the sole intent to help each other improve. I can state without hesitation I am a much better trader for my time here.

Welcome.

I totally agree. But I do used NT7 and love it.

This was running a bunch of cars in and out with real $$$. NT7 did great.
