Hello Alan.

I'm in South Shields. I'm brand new to trading (spreadbetting), 8months learning and only paper traded so far. I've been concentrating on short term swing trading of forex, commodities and uk stocks using price action. I do it on a part time basis as I'm an engineer and have a full time job. I think Dave (Ha0dho) is in a similar position to myself. What type of trading do you do? Are you full time?

Regards
Dan

Hi Dan,
I'm in the same boat.
Research and paper trading at the moment. I've always had an interest in commodities and have a friend who has successfully dealt in forex so I'm learning from him (on the odd occasion we can get together).

My background is road transport & calor gas via the family business but I'm shying away from the former and learned slowly that I should be working smarter, not harder lol.

A few years ago I took a long, hard look at Network Marketing and decided that, done properly, it was an impressive opportunity but the drawback was that I'm no salesman!
Sure, I can talk business-to-business but I'm not a great retailer of products. I also found that the bigger, more established companies used sales methods I wasn't comfortable with, and for the business model to work it has to be duplicable so I searched some more.

Eventually I found a new organisation which would allow me to concentrate on building a team of business people, much the same kind of folk I'd always "talked business" with, and leave the product retailing to those who do it best. This business has started to take off now and it leaves me with time on my hands and spare cash every month!
Yes, I am still involved in my business, I'll never leave it but I can now downshift a second gear from the "frantic me" of 10 years ago and take time to enjoy life a little more!

Moving house, changing job and getting married all in the space of a few months has given me very little time for much else.
I'm only just getting back into the swing of things. Needless to say my pot of capital got swallowed up so I'm back demoing whilst trying to get myself back in the black. Yea i'm still on msn.
