Hi all

I'm interested to find out what time-scales T2W members are looking for in trades.

Are you:

Hi FB,
I started off an index day trader and added currencies to the list of trading vehicles which is more a swing style of trading as per your description but am also day trading us stocks now with a view to swing trading those... so i dont know where i would put myself...:?:

Swing trading dominates my trading at the moment but i should imagine my day trading will pick up a bit more in the coming weeks

HTH... are you profiling traders for a psychology thesis:?: :LOL:

Your the very reason I let you pick more than one option :cheesy:
What ever happened to trading one way :rolleyes: (would have made the poll a lot cleaner :cheesy: )

As for a Psychology Thesis - I think I'll pass. Dr. FB is just far too many initials for me
I think there's one choice missing from the list so I cant vote.
