I found this site whilst browsing Motley Fools' day traders den. Thank goodness a site exists for traders and aspiring traders.

I have bought and sold shares in the past (Pre TA) , Traded options, and lately spread betting Indicies and commodities. Not made or lost much - it's still a hobby.

However Universal stock futures caught my eye plus CFD's. Taxable but lower spreads. Rather pay tax on profits than be killed by large spreads. Sharescope is my software, end of day data my ammunition. Thus I am not an intra-day trader but will hold for several days if a trend develops.

Well read on TA but was humbled by the postings by Grey etc who show TA theory applied in practice.

My ignorance of ECN's etc indicate that I would appreciate any book pointers on the subject.

Awaiting a book by William Dunnigan who allegedly uses TA to trade and is highly regarded?

I have a lot to learn and appreciate the excellent editorial content of this site.

Regards

Neil

Hello

Another distaffer. . . . .

I trade index options and some stock options and UK futures and have an ailing tech stock portfolio that I force myself to look at sometimes - shudder- would like to learn more about Nasdaq and US trading - found the market chat thread of inestimable use, a great find. Thanks to Roger M for recommending T2W.

Hi all

Yes, another new member, although with a site like this its not really surprising.

me, I retired, now playing at investing, thought I had cracked it, during the dotcom fiasco.
Now following the trend(excuse the pun) by dipping my toe in spread betting, just for the purpose of going "short"

rather like the idea of day trading, but need lots of giudance.

did you know there is a uk broker that provides a " stop loss"
"comdirect"

FWIW, DLJdirect now provide stoplosses and limit orders as well - whether this will survive now they're being taken over by TDWaterCloset I dunno - I plan to move to comdirect.

Morning All,

First posts today, hopefully the first of a few, nice to find a thriving traders colony.

As an Intro - TBS "The Blind Squirrel", have been trading futures mkts for about 10 years, mainly commods and indices. Speciality PnF charting, but a pure TA when it comes to it. Very much trend/sup/res orientated.

Other than that, run a private hedge fund, teach TA at City Uni, run private investor courses and write websites - quiet life really []

new to you

hi, been day trading futures and the very odd option or usf for about 9 months now , use gni at the moent but am considering my options now that the new year is with us , am particuarly interested to join discussions with other traders re uk and euro futures on indexes.

been moderately succesful but would appreciate any tips or comments on how to get the best from the markets - or indeed the brokers.

quite active, 15 /20 contracts a day , so would be interested in any suggestions re brokers and commission rates etc.

will go and have a browse and see what i can find on this site.

happy trading
