Traders are meeting (are you a Trader?)

Our periodic meet-up in Zurich Hauptbahnhof (ZHB)
at the Imagine Bar at the station Hall.

We enjoyed our previous meetups and continue to enjoy the momentum with new members and new topics. As usual, I'll come up with a topics agenda just before the event, so that we have some topics to talk about in addition to the always spontaneous and interesting dynamic ones.

Hope to see you soon trader!

Regards,
Your meet-up host,
Esteve

    Thanks Esteve, it's still a different mindset in the game compared to real trading, so results can't be taken too seriously ;)

    I have added some more links to the resources Pages site. If anyone has more links / information / things to share, do not hesitate to send the ideas to me and I'll update the page so that we can all benefit from it.

    In the meantime, as usual, happy trading!

    Hello everyone!

    Fantastic meetup yesterday as we managed to be nine (9) people at the end and I do believe we all enjoyed our time by meeting similar people and exchanging experiences, anecdotes and discussing quite a bit about Trading.

    Thank you everyone for making it happen. I will now schedule the next meetup for beginning of September (as in August many people are on vacation) and will update the Pages section of the meetup with some links that were discussed during the meetup.

    I look forward to meeting you all soon and wish you a lot of wise and successful training to each one of you.

    "Once a trader, always a trader" the idiom says..let's see!

    Have a nice time,
    Esteve

    5) What do 'professional traders' do different than the retail-traders?

    6) Hedging, do you use it? To which degree? How do you cover your traders? Insurance using options? What works better for you?

    7) FX versus stocks and futures? advantages and why people choose to trade different kind of derivatives?

    8) Strategies? Manual versus automated ones?

    9) Any projects / ideas about writing software / strategies or 'automating' your trading?

    10) Q&A / Open discussions

    Lets see how our talking go.

    Remember.. the idea is to have fun and make friends... sharing trading as the common passion.

    Enjoy,
    Esteve

    As usual I have come up with a few agenda topics just in case we need a formal script to discuss trading subjects.

    This time, I propose the following questions:

    1) Trading: what's your trading method? How do you trade? Momentum-based, Technical Analysis, Order-flow monitoring.. what is your experience and what works best for you? Anyone 'trading the news'? and to which degree?

    2) Years of experience? Are you a 100% trader, doing this for a living or part-time?

    3) What would be your advise for the others to become a better trader? which attributes / characteristics you think work better for a trader?

    4) Why is it so difficult to find traders willing to share and exchange their experiences?

    Dear Traders,

    Tuesday is coming and I look forward to meeting you all in our periodic meetup! To the new attendees, I am sure you'll enjoy sharing ideas and experiences with other akin people.

    See you all on Tuesday.

    We'll be standing by the bar at the Imagine Bar in ZHB, easy to be recognised.

    In case of anything (if you do not find us, for example), you can reach me on my mobile at: [masked] for assistance. Have a nice day you all and good and wise Trading!

    Esteve
