Meet others interested in actively trading in capital markets while making new friendships with other traders. We trade stocks, options, futures, forex, commodities, bonds and more! We are not trying to sell you anything or push any particular product or service like a lot of other Meetups, we just want to get to know each other and learn from each other. Come join us!

We meet at least once a month at a business location for 2hrs on a weeknight and discuss trading strategies such as

- Trade entries and exits, favorite trading systems

- Money management and portfolio sizing

- Favorite trading platforms and instruments

- Favorite technical indicators and setups

- Analyze current stock, commodities and forex market conditions

- Day trading, swing trading, momentum trading, investing


We also have occasional social gatherings such as lunchtime get-togethers, or morning meetups on days where the markets are closed.
