I'm a newbie technical trader. Just started trading live, having practiced and virtual-traded on a simulator in demo accounts for six months before pulling the trigger live. Nothing like generating consistent, steady, sustained, positive cash flow daily from the relaxed comfort and peaceful privacy of my home.
Trading platform is TradeStation 9.0. Have dual 24" 16x10 monitors running at 1920x1200. Plan on upgrading to a Maingear Shift Super Stock (Intel Core i7-2600K 5.0GHz, 12GB 2,000MHz DDR3 RAM) with an ATI Radeon HD5870 Eyefinity six monitor system.
Mainly spot Forex (all majors & comdolls, some minors & crosses, but no exotics or any currency pair with spread > 4 pips) and Equity Index Futures (e-minis: YM, NQ, ES, TF) for now. Considering commodities & equity options (writing puts) later on.
To learn, mingle, share, interact, connect, contribute, network, meet, & friend other like-minded active traders in the local Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area (because being a successful profitable trader is a lonely isolating profession).
I'm an OTA Platinum Passport holder with 5 XLTs & a recent graduate. Mostly an intraday momentum & swing trader. May position trade with options and sector ETFs in the future as profits accumulate. Mainly use price & volume as primary decision maker.
