    Rockwell Trading

    Your points are well thought out and do make sense to me. I guess I should mention that I studied futures trading for many months before trading live. I had my own ideas on trading strategies and a basic trading plan before signing up with RWT. Also, I did not study their whole course as many...

    Rockwell Trading

    Rockwell is definitely not a scam but it is no holy grail either. They offer reasonably priced trading courses and offer some interesting trading strategies. Again , I repeat, this is not a holy grail and if you copy their every trade you will probably lose money because you obviously have not...

    Rockwell Trading

    I have been trading with Rockwell trading strategies for over 3 months now, very successfully . I believe all traders need to develop their own trading plans and what works for their own trading styles and only then will one be able to implement ANY strategy successfully. IMHO :)

    Can someone please explain margin requirements for the day trader to me?

    Dude, you are totally confused.... sorry but, if you can't figure out what a margin is and how it works on your own then you will be just throwing your money away when it comes time to trade real money. No offense, of course. :)

    LOL! Yes, I would love to get going sooner ! BUT, it is my nature to have all my ducks in a row before jumping into something and another big BUT is that I'm waiting for the kids to get back to school so that I can start a schedule and routine to implement my trading plan. Sim trading has been...

    Does anyone use a trading journal spreadsheet?

    Just wondering if anyone is using some type of spreadsheet to keep track of their trading? I found a thread here but, it seemed dated so, I wanted to ask again... I came accross a company called "tradingspreadsheets" online and they seem to have a good product but, not sure if it's necessary -...

    Is 2% return per week realistic?

    Thanks mb, you are so right! I come here to listen to other opinions, but trading is so personal that what works for one may not work for another and I always make my own mind up ;)

    Is 2% return per week realistic?

    I basically just mean being smart with my money and trying to keep the odds on my side (not gambling per se) basically exactly what tomorton said: I want to manage my money so that I can stay in the game long enough to win :) Good point though about risking 1% - I will think about that some...

    Is 2% return per week realistic?

    Thank you, I've come to realize that if I manage my losses and stick with my rules, the profits will take care of themselves. I'm not going to concern myself too much with the end result right now. Just wanted to try and figure out risk/reward, etc for my trading plan. I will be starting with...
