'Trading buddy' good or bad idea

I just joined trade2 win and I live in Newcastle.
I have been trading for the last 1.5 years
Looking for a 'trading buddy' been advised that this is a good
method of exploring what you have learned.
With trading you are continuously learning and it would
be good to share these ideas with a person who also trading

Good question. Seeing the benefits after having trading buddies for a while, I wrote a blog post specifically about the benefits of trading buddies - here's a link Trading Buddies blog post.

You may well be able to find a trading buddy here on T2W.

I would generally agree, a trading buddy also might help you keep on track in case things don't go as smooth as expected. Also a second opinion can always come in useful and would help you develop more quickly.

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

You are at right place and there is no doubt Forum is too strict for its rules. So be careful before you share anything. Other than it is fun to be part of here, I enjoyed here by reading so many posts.

Depends on buddy , if they are winners they can inspire you , if they are losers they will inspire you , 95 % lose in this game so u are more likely to find the latter .

People can not objectively assess themselves and their capabilities, it is better to have a friend or partner who could point out mistakes to you.
