Did we ever make a 6E/ Euro/USD room? I want to see if there is interest. There are too many 6E traders lurking around that need to corrupt me with their amazing skillz. Maybe if I am in a room I won't skype as much

Yes, there is a 6E room. I'll add you.


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.

Thanks for the thread Mike, and the wonderful opportunities it opens up for all of us.

I was trading part time, and had some family and personal issues that have disrupted my trading regime starting about 8 weeks ago. I used the hiatus to return to my previous employment as a form of 'adversion therapy' and to gain more perspective on what I needed to do for myself. I am actively working daily to have myself and my tools ready to trade full time by end of March, if not sooner.

Currently I have once again started sim trades at market open, though I am leaning more to 830 EST start to about 1130 and then a nap and to work 4pm - 1230 am. A bit gruelling if there is sleep devrivation (ie: stress from work).

A trading buddy for the NQ would be great: I would prefer voice on skype (I have no problem with long silences - I play 'trading mind' affirmations inserted into a self made/designed nature sounds recording on a subliminal track) as I type slow and prefer focus on screens. Ideally once I start trading again I will be monitoring my own automated strategies on NQ to make sure I dont get caught in a software blowout of my account.

Strategy is leaning toward scalping in different time frames, and 'going with the flow' when a trending setup is available.
