hi Mystic,

 

thanks for reply.

I'm actually in a holding pattern right now. Had been trading options, almost exclusively Apple, last few mos of 2013. Decided to take the plunge into full-time trading in the new year, but have hit a snag with biz formation issues.

Had been in contact with Traders' Accounting, in Phoenix, and was going to use them for coaching and bookkeeping set-ups, yet my research uncovered quite a bit of negative feedback of the co. This bore out my initial reservations about not using a local CPA with knowledge of traders' acctg and taxation methodologies, as well as Traders' Acctg's seemingly high pricing structures, especially for entity formation.

I've since formed my multiple-entity LLC with NYS, which was easy and painless, despite Traders' dire warnings not to do "anything without speaking first with your coach." However, my entity was formed using much of Traders' initial consultation advice, and I'm unsure if my LLC is in fact the best way to go, i.e., does it really allow for distributions which are not considered income and therefore not subject to self-employment taxes, and so many more questions!!

So here I sit, unfunded and unhappy, unsure how to proceed..

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Hi, Im new to this forum, actually this is my first forum i've ever joined. So i'm excited to try this out and stay active with this forum and great people on here. I've been trading, wait, investing for a couple years now where now i want to start day trading. I am learning the in's and out's but what I am finding is that EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE tells me something completely different from strategies to terms to styles, etc...

 

I'm from Canada (Yes, my Mayor smokes crack...) and I want to aim big- meaning my goal is to open a day trading floor. I did mess around with day trading but now i want to take it to the next level.

 

Any advice people? Please, lets be honest and serious.

 

Thanks gang!

Hi kookiemonster,

You must have emigrated from South Africa or Holland , with a name like that.

You will waste years of your life, and lots of money with your new venture.:doh:

This is not the thread to give advice, but for what its worth.......:(

You have to find a mentor to shorten the learning curve.

And by a mentor I mean a local trader in your area who will help.

Even if you have to pay for it.:crap:And with all the sharks out there you will pay more than once.:crap:

Imagine deciding you want to become a professional golfer. :roll eyes:

Do you think reading 100 books will make you a professional golfer ?:confused:

I rest my case.

kind regards

bobc

Hi There Everyone!

 

I've dabbled in day trading stocks, options, and even the forex off and on for a while now, and have never met with any real success.

 

What I'm hoping to learn here is consistency and discipline to build a smart automated trading platform.. Looking for trades to capitalize on over a week to a few months. I want to combine my love of programming and make some serious cash on the markets. Daunting analytically programs come natural to me, so if you've got a winning strategy, I'm the guy who can implement it.

 

About Me: This isn't my first go round with predictive algorithm software. This past season in the NFL, I built and maintained a predictive program that picked winning NFL teams called fantasy mainframe. The software would participate in cash salary leagues, and had a winning percentage of over 70%. The point is not to brag, but to look at the possibility of doing something similar with stocks. The NFL program looked at players on an individual basis and compared them with upcoming opponents, and then would rank them accordingly. I believe the same principles could be applied to stocks and options. A program would be more thorough and faster than it's human counterparts. I'm just not sure what disciplines or what to build into a program to make it effective - which is where partnering with you folks would come into play ;)

 

I don't have a tremendous bank roll, but should have enough to get started. In total, I have about $14k at play in the stock market. Prior to testing it live, I'd like to use a dummy account on any stuff we were to develop. Any tips that could point me in the right direction could be very helpful - stuff like books to ready, strategies you recommend, forum posts to follow up on, etc. Anyone who is interested in maybe teaming up can post here or email me at fantasymainframe at gmail dot com.

 

TIA! Jeff :)

    • Date : 18th February 2020. UK Week Ahead - 18th FebruaryThe data calendar this week is quite busy, featuring, in chronological order, monthly labour market data today, January inflation figures (Wednesday), January retails sales (Thursday), and the preliminary January PMI surveys (Friday).The UK employment is anticipated to hold steady at 3.8% in December data, though the average household income to dip to a 3.1% y/y rate in the three months to December. The headline CPI has forecasted to remain unchanged at 1.3% y/y rate, which is well off the BoE’s 2.0% target, though would fit the central bank’s projections. A 0.6% m/m rebound in retail sales is expected following the 0.6% contraction in December. As for the preliminary PMI data, the market consensus if for a dip in the headline composite reading, to 52.7 from 53.3, with service sector expansion seen slowing after the acceleration in January, and manufacturing sector activity dipping back into mild contraction.Overall, the as-expected data will affirm a picture of a post-election rebound in activity. This, combined with markets anticipating a fiscally expansive 2020-21 budget presentation from the government in March, should keep the pound underpinned. The impact of the coronavirus hasn’t, by anecdotal measures, been much as yet.On the Brexit front, concerns persist. The government has clearly signalled that it aims for divergence from the EU, and leave, without a new trading agreement if necessary, the Brexit transition period at the end of the year. This would imply the UK shifting to WTO trading terms and conditions, which would erode terms of trade. Bear in mind that when the UK leaves transition phase, it won’t just be leaving the EU’s single market and customs union, but also the 40 free trade agreement that the Union has around the globe.In currency market meanwhile, Cable has continued to consolidate gains seen mid last week following signs that the government is gearing up a fiscally expansive policy. The pair has pullback to 1.3000 area, off from the two-week high of last Thursday at 1.3069.On the year-to-date, and from the mid-December election, the Pound has been trading mixed versus the other main currencies, lacking domestically generated directional bias. Political developments have seen UK Prime Minister Johnson strengthen his power, most notably with last week’s resignation of Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid, who was replaced by Rishi Sunak, which effectively green lights a fiscally expansive policy to finance major infrastructure projects (details are due to be announced at the government’s 2020-21 budget presentation in March).Available January data out of the UK have also confirmed a rebound in economic activity as the fog of political uncertainty cleared following the general election. On the negative side of the balance are persisting concerns about Brexit.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Date : 17th February 2020 Events to Look Out For Next Week 17th February 2020.Uncertainties over the extent of the economic damage from the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) will keep the markets on shaky footing near term. Elsewhere, focus will be on Europe following Germany’s economic stagnation in Q4 last year as seen today. Looking ahead, ZEW exports and manufacturing remain in the spotlight. That said, further contraction on these leaves the risk that the labour market will start to suffer. The balance of risks is clearly tilted to the downside, and not just for Germany’s economy. Monday – 17 February 2020 Eurogroup Meeting US Bank Holiday – US banks will be closed in observance of Presidents’ Day – NYSE, Nasdaq and Bond markets are all fully closed.

The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to rise to 30.0 from 25.6. Trade Balance (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Japanese imports should decrease -15.8% y/y in January, compared to -4.9% in December, in expectation of lower domestic consumption. Overall, the trade balance is expected to have worsened in January. Wednesday – 19 February 2020 Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – Prices are expected to have eased in January, with overall inflation expected to stand unchanged at 1.3% y/y, and core at 1.5% from 1.4% y/y last month. Consumer Price Index (CAD, GMT 13:30) – Prices are expected to have improved to 0.1% in January following a flat CPI in December. The overall inflation should have expanded in January to a 2.2% y/y, matching December’s reading. FOMC Minutes (USD, GMT 19:00) – The FOMC minutes will provide more insight on the views the FED has about the economy. Thursday – 20 February 2020 Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Employment change s.a. is expected to have increased by 31K in Australia in January, compared to 28.9K in December. The unemployment rate is expected to have increased to 5.2%. Retail Sales (GBP, GMT 09:30) – Following the unexpected 0.6% m/m contraction in UK retail sales in December, Retail Sales are expected to grow by 0.6% in January. ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts (EUR, GMT 12:30) –The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts, similar to the FOMC minutes, provide information with regard to the policymakers’ rationale behind their decisions. National CPI Index (JPY, GMT 23:30) – The Japanese price index should fall to 0.7% on a y/y basis, compared to 0.8% in December. Friday – 21 February 2020 EU PMIs (EUR, GMT 09:00) – Both manufacturing and services February PMIs are expected to have dropped, leaving the composite at 51.0, down from 51.3 in the preliminary release for February. In Germany meanwhile, composite PMI should slow to 50.7 from 51.2. UK Service PMI (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The final services PMI for January was unexpectedly revised up, to 53.9 from 52.9 in the preliminary estimate, and the highest level in 16 months. Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 10:00) – CPI inflation is forecasted to hold at 1.4% y/y as seen in January. Retail Sales (CAD, GMT 13:30) – Core Canadian sales are anticipated to have risen by 0.4% m/m in December, compared to 0.2% m/m in November.
