Hi everyone, I'm Jan (pronounced Yan) but JC will do. I am British but living in Norway for the last 14 years. I'm an economist working for an oil company, dreaming of escape.
The idea of day trading hit me when having a beer with a mate of mine who was developing trading algorithms. It was annoying - here was a geologist doing stuff that maybe an economist should be doing. Anyway, I started to research and found Andrew's books and got hooked. I joined BBT recently (August 2019). I am in the long term planning and sim phase before considering going live.
I have to say that the community is excellent. The more you dig the more useful information you discover. At first the classes and then the additional resources, then getting to know the moderators and their individual trading styles, this has all been really helpful. However, dig a little deeper and you find the forums are a gold mine. Members like Kyle with his hotkey scripts, Robert H supporting so many members and showing such empathy, Mike B and many others with the journals and Igor and Adrian with Chartlog, the list goes on and on. People are so incredibly generous with their time and ideas. It really is fantastic. Great community, great people.
