I know it's been a number of weeks since I've last communicated, and I can't believe that we're three weeks into the new year already. Time flies. Pretty soon the Olympics will be here and let's hope it gets a little colder and the mountains get a little snow.
Karen is looking into booking a place for a Meetup that will be scheduled for the very near future. I look forward to seeing everyone then.
We should have a guest come in to be with us, but there are a few things I'd like to cover including automated trading and brokerage accounts. Also, I'll have a free trading book for everyone who attends and I'll do a draw for a trading course.
PLEASE RESPOND One question that I do have, which I will also pose at the Meetup is if any of you are interested in a Metaquotes programming course (to create automated strategies for the Metatrader platform). You do NOT need to have a programming background for this, and I have a friend who is willing to fly from Ontario to teach it live. He usually charges around $900 USD for it, but if there is enough interest in the group we'll get a deal.
I'm just gauging interest right now, so if you could let me know if this sounds like something you would like, please hit REPLY to this email!
The goal of this Meetup is to share ideas and help each other become better traders. If you have a trading idea that you would like to present, please send me an email with your presentation at least a couple of weeks before the Meetup that you would like to present at.
All levels of traders are welcome, and as many successful traders may testify, there's always something that can be learned from sharing and teaching, too. Just be mindful that trading is a commitment and isn't for those who are looking to make a quick buck. There are a multitude of resources we have in our files section.
Limited handouts will be available, and it's first-come first-served, so come on time. As group organizer I am a founder of a trading company called TradingMetro, which means that I can afford to lend resources to the group on occasion. I also author a daily industry blog called PipStop. This is an open group where anybody and any conversation trading related is welcome.
