Hello fellow traders!

My name is Mike and I am fairly new to trading, however I have been researching and trading pretty much full time for the last 3 to 4 months or so. I am aspiring to be a full time day trader and for now I am focusing on day trading/scalping small to medium caps in the US Market using momentum strategies and a few hand picked technical set ups.

I am a long biased trader as I am trading a Cash Account with ThinkOrSwim to bypass the PDT rule and so cannot short any stocks, however once I prove I am a profitable trader and have a winning strategy in place I will open a $25K+ account with LightSpeed. I had an original account size of about $9,500 and am currently down about $500 overall after a horrible last month of trading, wiping out my modest gains and going into the red. I use Trade Ideas to help me find stocks and sometimes Benzinga Pro. I also have a very small IG account where I swing trade a few currency pairs and occasionally the S&P 500 so am open to FX conversations but mostly just focused on scalping.

I am still in the process of coming up with a strict trading plan and I think one of the hardest parts of day trading as a solo entity is not having other traders to bounce ideas off and review your trades, hence why I am very excited to join Trade2Win and become an active member of it. I am looking to meet other new starters in a similar boat as well as seasoned traders who have been through it all before and are willing to offer some advice or even become a mentor.

If you'd like to connect with me to discuss strategies, setups, trader emotions/psychology or review trades I'll be monitoring my inbox regularly so please feel free to drop me a line.

All the best and happy trading!

You start by learning straight away that there are criminals/con-men out there. I am talking about Finspreads who now call themselves EFX. Read this if you don't believe me :

And here they are again :

These bums stole thousands from me.

I have been an investor for over 20 years and have self managed my portfolio. Taught myself and I do come from school of hard knocks. I guess I was lucky to have always been interested in technology and was an early investor in Apple, Amazon and Tesla. During recent lockdown, I went over some lessons to teach myself options trading which I intend to pursue more in future. I look forward and hope to learn a lot in the group.

Hi everyone,

my trading path started back in 2017. It took me almost 2 years to filter out the crap and scam on the internet just to find some genuine people that i can trust. I'm a senior software developer and i was able to join forces with senior traders to develop a solid system for trading the FX market. To learn more about it, go to the commercial Trading indicators & Systems forum section and look for "Uncle Lee´s Pip Hunter".

As a retail trader I wish i had a tool like that at my disposal when i started trading.

I wish everyone all the best in their trading career.
Cheers and stay safe

Hi everyone. My name is Andy and I am pretty new to trading the Forex Markets. My feeling is that there is a lot to learn. Still papertrading. I will need to become a stable trader before I will fund my account with real money. Hope to get nice contacts and learn from every bodies content and replies. Untill my next post! Cheers, Andy
hi Andy, good luck and my best advice is to ASK questions, do not go into live trading with any uncertainties be sure of your strategy and trust your trading plan. and practice on demo until you feel ready, do not rush the learning time.

best wishes!
