What has been your biggest challenge in trading?

I find it challenging to remain engaged with backtesting to generate statistically relevant results. I believe it is important to base your trading on approaches that are successful when applied to historical price data.

What do you like best about trading the market?

It provides the ability to make a great living by successfully applying a disciplined, systematic approach.

What markets have you traded?

Yes: I have traded stocks and options for roughly the same period of time.

What would you like to get out of this group?

The liquidity, the leverage, the lack of commissions, the focus on a few currency pairs versus thousands of stocks, the ability to trade forex successfully by technical systems.


I grew up in Chicago, but now live near New Haven, Connecticut. My interest in forex arose 2 years ago when I started trading for a living. It can be very isolating when trading as an individual, so I look forward to being active in this group.

What Donald W. is saying about this Meetup Group

I look forward to evolving along with the other members of the group.
