Hi everyone!

Donald is here, and I'm very excited to be a part of this whole thing. Just recently started learning and trading, so not yet a professional, but lets give it some time I say! I am very passionate about the things I do or did in the past, and hopefully that won't be my fault in this experience. Also every suggestion is welcome!

Well, their package has a bunch of video lessons. After the lessons you get quizzes which I like a lot, because you can test yourself if you just watched them or you actually understood them :D So far I haven't really used their other services, but one step at a time. Will let you know about more when I get there. Videos are high quality by the way, and very educational.

Thanks Donald, I really appreciate any information. At their website, they mention private mentoring sessions and webinars too. Have you tried any of them?

Not the webinars, but I had one mentoring session so far and it was pretty good I can say. Made me understand a lot more about the markets and they pointed me into the right direction. It was worth it for sure.

Hello, my name is Brian. I have been a small time buy and hold investor for about 20 years or so. I began with a mutual fund. I watched the price go up or down again quarterly, and never knew what I should do about that. Live and learn. I have been trading in stocks and ETF's for the last 7 years or so, with some success, in that " Hall of Mirrors" known as the stock market.  I have recently become interested in the idea of actively trading, which for me means weekly/biweekly short term positions, using fundamental analysis, market/economic information and advisors ratings as guides as to what to purchase and when.  I want to use short timing to increase my current income, and I am hatching an idea to do this and not to give up my day job. With some skepticism, I would say  am a devotee of Warren Buffet, as I have read several of his books.

Hi,

My story may sound familar to anyone with software development background.

I'm an experienced software engineer with 20+ years in the market, mostly trading my own products. Unemployeable since 2003, when I launched my first successful venture.

I came into the market with an idea of becoming a consistently profitable trader in few weeks, then develop some tools for personal use which may become great products over time. But I soon found that I can't be a trader and a software developer at the same time. Trading is about earning screen time but I always missed every hour without coding.

I almost gave up, when I got support from active traders I met along the way. The solution was to focus on what I'm good at. Not trying to become a trader but rather developing products for other traders. It seems like a failure but it was the answer for me personally.

I'm still at the beginning of the journey, my first product (Forex Simulator) isn't perfect yet but it's evolving really fast. I hope to make it the best product on the market in the next 3-6 months.

I came here to learn from successful traders, to help them make their work more effective, profitable and fun. It will be great to get any feedback: ideas, suggestions, feature requests and bug reports.

I can also help others who are following the same route. With my 20+ years in software business there is a lot to share.

Hello, and welcome to the forum! The app seems to be nice, I will give it a go sometime soon.

Thank you!

I plan to add automated backtesting after I research competing products in the next 1-2 weeks, better wait a bit to get a better first impression :)

By the way, the amount of interesting and valuable information here is outstanding. I wonder why there almost are no active threads. When I read the forum and see something interesting or worth discussing, I just look at 2008 or 2012 as a date of post to remember that I'm not a necroposter. So, I just wandering around, reading it carefully and liking posts :)

I am just beginning to trade with a goal of becoming proficient over time through knowledge and practice. I have read: How I made 2 Million Dollars in the Stock Market; How to Make Money in Stocks; Invest like the Best; The Complete Idiots Guide to Technical Analysis; and a few others within the past few weeks. I am currently working through Market Wizards. I subscribed to Value Line including their Analyzer, Investors Business Daily and utilize Worden's TC2000.

I am having difficulty trying to utilize these tools to effectively locate stocks with recognizable buy points. A recent purchase was SBUX on 7/11 expecting it to work back towards its 55-56 price point.

      I invested 60% of my retirement payment on Coin Bull and Paperex with the mindset of getting it multiplied and enjoying a better retirement life. It was sweet and smooth from the start, withdrawals were easy and consistent until it gets to a point I started to be denied withdrawals and that was how I lost all money, I couldn't get my investment amount back not talk of the bonuses. I contacted several lawyers but it was all waste of time and money, they couldn't render an inch of help. God so good to my old self and family, I later met with a certified binary options recovery expert that helped me recover my money within 5days from the brokers(Coin Bull), it was worth it, he was able to retrieve my funds. If you have found yourself in same situation as me you can contact the expert on '' Hacknet1seven1( A T)p r o t o n m a i l ( d o t c o m )" also he can render any other desired hacking services, I can assure he would be able to help you just as he helped me, you can give him a try if you don't mind. Binary options brokers shouldn't get away with this.

      Swing trading stocks for beginners starting out with only $500
      There are only a few different ways to be a market speculator - which way is best for you? You would either become an intraday trader, a swing trader or position trader. Swing trading is by far the easiest and fastest way for a beginner trader to make money right away in the their new trading business.
      If you do want to swing trade and only be in a position for 3-5 days or a little longer you will need to have the capital in your account to handle the overnight margin requirement of whatever your chosen instrument is to work in. CAUTION: If you are a new trader and have to use leverage to trade, you just shouldn’t trade. Stay out until you have sufficient capital to go into the market and be able to have a chance to make money.
      You can also even become a position investor and trader in the beginning and keep positions for a long term time horizon. Most position investors and traders are in a position for months and sometimes years; these are the most successful consistently profitable money making investors and traders in the business. It is this type of investing and trading which over the long term makes the most amount of money.
      One of the reasons this type of investing and trading is so profitable is because the expenses associated with this type of market action are low and do not add up as quickly as they do with other types of trading. Remember, it takes money to make money and also costs money to make money in the live markets, the more money you spend of fee's, commissions, and settlement costs the less money you have to build your capital account up and also build your wealth.
      If you would like to be more of an investor or position trader, then you will also need to be well-funded to sustain a draw-down on a position of as much as 50 percent. Should you not have the mental wherewithal to sit through a 50 percent draw-down on any given position in your portfolio, then again I recommend just staying out of the live markets until you have the psychological makeup to do so.
      I recommend picking one style of investing or trading and becoming an expert at it. Find a few instruments you like and study their price action and work in those exclusively, you do not need to work in every asset class there is, you also do not need to be in the market all the time because cash is also a position.
      Once you learn your method and have it down pat, have your rule based plan composed and can stick to it you can begin swing trading with as little as $500 to start off. One method that is very easy to learn for beginner swing traders is the End of Day method which only has you looking at charts one time a day a the end of RTH and is the most stress-free and relaxed approach to investing and trading that yields less risk and much more reward potential.
      Remember, you don’t need a job you need an income, right? End-of-day trading basically allows you to fit in trading around your schedule as a beginner when you are first learning how to trade and as I said, doesn't require a lot of time at your trading station. One thing is absolutely for sure in trading, and that is time equals money, and the longer term your perspective is the more money you will make. EOD trading allows you to be in the market for a longer period of time thus making you more money. 
      End of day trading strategies are focused mainly on using the daily time frame, it’s easy because you only need one chart set up other than a weekly or a monthly for doing MTF analysis. As a beginner it is the easiest fastest method to learn to make real money right away in the live markets doing swing trading as a beginner. If you're getting into this business to make money right away this is how to do it the fastest easiest way. Have a look at the SWING TRADING FOR BEGINNERS COURSE in the suggested reading section if you are a raw beginner with no experience and want to learn how you can get going with only $500 this course tells you how to do that and then some. Just think of it this way you can make back what this course costs in one swing trade, AND THEN SOME!
      **Important** Share the knowledge you gained in this educational blog article. I would really appreciate if you share it on your social media with fellow beginner traders. Click the “Button” to add/share it to Facebook, post it on Twitter or where ever you are.
      Thanks a 100 million for your help in sharing these lessons with others.
      Remember: Trade smart OR JUST DON’T TRADE!

    • Actions for the 23rd.  Hugely frustrating day, picked my spots but my timing was off.  I don't seem able to find a trade that will survive long enough for me to manage and test my patience, that in itself is testing me right now.

      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 23rd January 2019.



      FX News Today 10-year Treasury yields are down from overnight highs, but still up 0.7 bp at 2.746%, and 10-year JGB yields climbed 0.8 bp to -0.004%. Stock markets remained cautious during the Asian session. The Bank of Japan held policy steady, as expected, while further reducing its outlook for inflation. The resulting weakness in the Yen didn’t help stock markets and Topix and Nikkei dropped -0.60% and -0.14% respectively. The Hang Seng is also down -0.04%, despite mainland China markets initially moving higher as China’s central bank pumped liquidity into the banking system once again. Still, the measures are also a sign that officials are nervous about the slowdown in the economy and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.24% and -0.13%. The bank offered around 258 bln Yuan (USD 38 bln) to banks through its medium term lending tool. Markets continue to question the progress in the US-Sino trade talks, even though White House adviser Lawrence Kudlow said that the trade talks are still on and the story about cancelled preparatory meetings was “not true, there was never any meeting. We are moving toward negotiations.” The negotiations next week will be “very, very important” and “determinative”. Meanwhile, there are the first signs of a possible way out of the US government shutdown. Markets remain easily spooked, but appear to have already priced in a lot of risk last year and US stock futures are moving higher after yesterday’s sell off. Oil prices are trading at USD 53.27 per barrel. Charts of the Day

      Main Macro Events Today Canadian Retail Sales – After Wholesale Sales plummeted yesterday, Canadian Retail Sales are expected to have also declined by 0.4% m/m, with core Retail Sales (ex autos) expected to have declined by 0.6%. World Economic Forum at Davos –The second day of the WEF annual meetings held in Davos and attended by officials from over 90 countries. Comments from central bankers and other influential officials can create significant market volatility. Richmond Manufacturing Index – Expectations – The index is expected to have remained at a sub-zero level, standing at -2 after the -8 in the December release. Support and Resistance Levels

    • USDJPY Eyes The 109.88 Resistance Zone And Beyond USDJPY eyes the 109.88 resistance zone beyond as it looks to resume its upside pressure. On the upside, resistance comes in at 110.00 level. A turn above here will turn attention to the 110.50 level. Further out, we expect a possible move towards the 111.00 level if the earlier resistance is invalidated out. The next resistance resides at the 111.50. Its daily RSI is bullish and pointing higher suggesting further strength. On the downside, support comes in at the 109.50 level where a break will target the 109.00 level. Below that level will turn focus to the 108.50 level and then lower the 108.00 level. On the whole, USDJPY faces further upside pressure on corrective recovery.
