Introduce Yourself!

Hi all,

My name's Amy. I'm a freelance writer and editor with some time and cash on my hands, U.S. citizen currently based in Mexico. I'm reading Andrew's book at the moment.

Dipping the end of my pinky toe into this business, and it will be a nice slow immersion! I know that a hive mind, especially with some experienced folks, will be immensely helpful to me. And someday I hope to be able to turn around and give back some support as well.

If there are any other Linux users around here I'll be interested to hear about it! I'm a little bit of a tinkerer so maybe I can make it work.

Looking forward to seeing folks in the chatroom some morning soon!

Hey folks,

My name is Gar and I'm from Ireland.  Happy to say that as of September, I can finally give day trading the time it deserves and see if it's something that suits me. I work as a pharmacist and currently have the luxury to pick and choose which days I work which frees up my weekdays to trade. Can still work at weekends and whenever else I need to.

Would love to make trading my main source of income. It's good to dream! But i'm well aware of the challenge before me and the next few months will tell a lot. I plan to trade in sim until the end of the year at least, probably longer. Trying to focus my learning on VPA and learn from the master himself @Thor . I also really like  @PeterD and @Aiman Almansoori trading styles but to be honest I can see myself learning bits from everybody in this community.

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

I'm brand new to the community!

I teach Elementary PE in Phoenix, AZ as my day job. While schools were closed and teaching remotely I read Andrew's book twice and did some paper trading as practice to see if this might be a good fit for me. It went pretty well so decided to bite the bullet and give this a shot.

Excited to see what trading has in store!

Hi everyone, I am new to BBT community, however I have listened to Carlos and Norm on YouTube on an off for a while now.

I am currently a Project Manager managing the development and support of software applications used on the Healthcare side of the DoD. I have been in this role for 20 years now. Before that I worked for Hewlett Packard on the medical side (Which most didn't know existed). I worked for HP in the support and sales side for a little over 18 years.

As you can see I am a little older, at the age of 58. I am originally from Canada, love hockey, both playing and coaching and I now live in NC with my wife.

I started learning about trading a couple years ago through Warrior Trading. I took Rosses courses, went through my time on the simulator and thought I had it figured out. I have gone back and forth with live trading and the simulator several times attempting to figure out my strategy.  I came to realize that what I thought was a strategy wasn't and I have not done well.

I joined BBT 2 weeks ago and just listening to all the moderators and going through the courses, I have learned so much about what to look for and why and where and how to set my stop. I have made a big effort in spending more time looking at charts and looking at patterns. I have come to realize that low float stocks are not for me and trading in the open isn't for me either. Wish I learned that before.

So enough of that, but I can say that I am excited with what I have learned and looking forward to making some small wins and becoming a much better trader with the help or the team.

Thank you

David, welcome to trading. I certainly hope your school finds an effective way to cope with our current reality. I know school boards across North America are struggling with how to deal with the protecting the students while properly educating.

Robert, as a former Canadian in NC...did you end up there through Nortel by chance? I spent a lot of time in RTP with Nortel's IT department since the IT executive team was there. Please don't hesitate to reach out if we can help with your trading journey.

Hello everyone!

I'm Upendra, living in Phoenix since 2007. Just became a lifetime member about a month back. I've been in the IT industry for long time now, currently in a business development role with a local IT company. Family of 4, wife & 2 sons, elder son is studying CS here in ASU, Phoenix and younger one is in 8th grade.

I got into trading quite late, only after the commissions were eliminated. Due to the covid WFH had time & started dabbling with day trading, swing trading just based on gut instincts and some tips from online articles & another friend who is a regular investor. Made some & lost some, decided to make an effort to learn about trading. Andrew's book was the catalyst to make me believe that it was doable and the right way to find out was to try on the SIM and see for myself. Like some of you guys, tried Ross Warrior Trader, he is good but compared to BBT, I found it to be a 1 man show and the low float/low price stocks were too volatile for a beginner like me. After the 2 week trial on both BBT & Warrior Trader I opted to join BBT and am glad that I did. For now I'm trading on DAS SIM, with modest goal of trying to first stay green consistently, then make $50/day, then $100/day - after that start live trading.

Lucky to have got couple of fellow new Life Time members who joined me as a small group and we are trying to help and learn from each other.  Whether or not I make the grade to become a full time day trader it has been a fun journey so far & its great to see so many people like me trying to make it to the next level.

Take care & stay safe!

Upendra

Hi there,

I am Amy from Vancouver Canada 🙂  So excited to have found this community.  I just finished reading Andrew's book last night and observed my first ever live trading session this morning at 4:30 AM PST (there goes my beauty sleep :P).  I am completely new to stock trading and frankly was afraid to try after hearing so many horror stories.  During Covid, I have more time and seeing some friends benefit greatly from the March dip, I got interested in stocks.  All of a sudden, my FB feeds is flooded with day trading courses lol.  After some more googling, here I am.  Hoping to get into sim practice this week while re-reading Andrew's book.

Hey everyone.  Wayne from TN here, new LTM.  I read Andrews book about a month ago and came over to this community.  I still have so much to learn and am currently working on disciplining myself enough to only take trades that match my setup.  I’m currently focusing on ABCD patterns but have not had much luck seeing them.  (All in the sim).

 

I am very excited about the next few months and hope to one day be profitable!
