I'm starting from absolute scratch, no knowledge whatsoever. (Maybe a good thing, mind uncluttered by pre-concieved ideas!). I've done so much reading today, my brain has turned to soup, there's so much to learn! It's all very exciting though, I'll take it a step at a time. I currently make a good living selling on Ebay, but I'm always reliant on finding stock, so share trading etc to me seems a logical step up.
I'm looking forward to learning something new, with the idea that in the future, it will become my main income generator.

Hi All,
What a welcome relief to find a site where so many knowledgable people hangout. Been spending the evening reading up about CFD's as I wish to actually make some money from the financial markets rather than just keeping my head above water for the last 3 years. Going short will be a novelty for me! It will be a sea-change going from a medium term investor (with the odd occassional day trade) to a short term trader.
Have also been spending time recently looking into the various financial packages such as MetaStock.

Great Site

Welcome to T2W Gadget, and it's a pleasure to have you sailing with us.

MetaStock doesn't have a wide following around here, although I'm sure my comment will probably draw a few MetaStockers out of the woods.

Remember, we're all friendly round here (if they're not I'll swipe 'em with my handbag), so please feel free to post any questions and you should get a variety of replies.

....well Helen...know you from e mail by Max on other TA site...

used sherescope...good package but indicators were not too accurate...used indexia...for some time until died a death...currently use Updata TA..which is still being finished by Updata...the best of the lot has been Metstock...

I believe that it is not what package you use...but how you use it and how do you engage your brain while doing it that counts...

So if there are not many on this site who use Metastock then fine...common puropose is to beat market and make money in the process...

LOL Splurge.

There is a very clever system on T2W that delete's any bad stuff said about Liverpool - well if there isn't, there should be. Sharky your task has been set

Hi All,

I'm new to this site and thought I'd say howdy.

I actually started trading UK/US shares holding for days/weeks but this was before the war (I sound like Albert from Only Fools ...), and the shares were going ape with no rhyme or reason. And when you go short on a share and a few days later an analyst upgrades the stock, as happened, I thought it was time to change tack.

I now spreadbet the Dow Jones Daily through IG using charts from eSignal as my guide. Still learning and making silly mistakes (like now cutting losses or being too quick to crystalise a gain - I'm sure we've all been there). Anyhow, hope to pick up tips/advice here and it's great to see so many intelligent people.

Keep up the good work T2W and good luck everybody.

Hello everyone,

I'm a newbie with a knowledge of investing (mainly collective investments) but a very rudimentary understanding of trading.

It's been fascinating reading through past posts and finding out about the world of trading.

I look forward to developing the right approach before jumping in feet first- and that will require a huge amount of dedication.

Well done for such a great site!

Hi, New reg here.

I have been looking for a good site to communicate with other inverster/SB's for learning purposes. I stubbled across T2W by accident an have been well impressed.
I have dabbled in stocks over a couple of years, but stopped after i lost a little bit a couple of years back. I have since restarted having been keen to try my hand at SB. Innitially it seemed very attractive (tax issues and all) , but i have become increasingly irritated with them due to their market prices fluctuations which effectivly double the spread and make it difficult to make money. I have been using Tradindex which i see is not hoghly praised on this site.
I believe that that do mark the accounts and introduce lags. My first month i made a packet and did not notice any perceptable lag in the market prices. Since then it has become very obvious and as a result i have given them back most of the money.
I find myself now looking around at other companies but also reading and learning as much as possible. I would like to move into futures rather.

hi szeller, and welcome to T2W

I'm sure you'll find lots of comments on these BBs which are similar to your own, together with discussions of how people have made the transition from SBs to futures, and those who still prefer the SB route using different instruments.
