    Hello everyone , I am excited being here with all of you. So many of you are so well informed in different areas of investing. We can share our ideas and experiences, with what is happening with our own portfolio.
    I love trading, but of course I am not doing it alone, lol
    I am using a game changing and disruptive technology that I believe will change an industry.
    According to Morgan Stanley 84% of all Stock Trades are done by Computers.
    Only 16% are done by Human Traders.
    We are all taught to buy and hold yet the average stock is held for 22 seconds in todays computer driven market!
    I realized what had happened to my own personal portfolio.. I was led to believe buy, hold, pray!
    Again that is how we learn as time moves on, from mistakes, and then become savvy, because we surround ourselves with innovation and technology. Even right here we get wealth of information, from some of the seasoned traders.

    I wouldn’t suggest algoritmic trading to anyone especially some one that is learning.
    Forex, unlike Equity stocks, Your whole margin is on the line, one phantom spike can wipe you out. Don’t trust a robot to trade for you. If your knowledgeable enough to trade with a automated system you won’t. Forex should be done hands on with Stops and by the minute and no Robot to loose your money. I myself never take my hand off the out button. The best way to trade Forex is hands on and learning the power of THREE.

      You should first learn how to trade manually, then look to automate the way you manually trade. Putting money into a black-box usually does not work out because you don't know how to handle the emotions involved with risk management trading your system, which are not completely eliminated with algo trading.
