I'm a very serious novice working to find which trading style will be right for me for the long term. Fortunately I found this great community before spending too much on expensive courses, programs, indicators, etc.
I've been trading since Sept 2014 (yes, I know, "novice" is an understatement) primarily in currency futures. At this point I'm inclined toward day trading with well-defined trade rules, but not such restrictive ones as to keep me out of the market for most of the day.
I want to learn. I want to learn by trading. I welcome advice from those kind and generous community members willing to share their wisdom and experience and of course their effective strategies.
This sums it up best - I'm working to learn things so basic to you that you've forgotten you know them. I'll get there though.
