Sharing of ideas, successes and failures, what works and what doesn't, preferred brokers, software tools, etc., and seasoned investors mentoring beginners. Personally, I hope some group interaction will provide a boost to my investing knowledge, encourage me to get started, and help me beat the statistical odds against long term success as an investor.
I am cautious by nature and easily give in to perpetual procrastination. I have yet to progress beyond paper trading, and would like to gain the confidence to begin...and experience that first profitable trade with real money. I am still exploring trading strategies and comparing markets to see which suit my investing personality. I have been especially interested in Futures and Forex for many years, and may have some unique, but untested ideas on Forex trading in particular.
Intensely analytical. Give me data, lots of it!!
