Hi Everyone,

My name is Rob (RunGoodRob in the chat) and I'm from the Niagara area in Ontario. During the pandemic I was permanently laid off from a winery where I worked for 17 years in IT. I've always been interested in day trading and am looking to get some good education and do it correctly. I'm mostly interested in options (SPY) but since they trade in tandem with the underlying security I'm looking to learn everything I can.

I'm also quite into poker and am not sure if that will be a positive or a negative to my trading career. On the plus side it helps thinking in probabilities and knowing that you can do everything right and still not get the desired outcome. But on the downside I don't want to venture too far into "gambling" in the market.

From everything I've learned about BBT it sounds like an awesome community and I'm looking forward to (virtually) meet everyone.

Cheers,
Rob

Hi everyone!

My name is Abraham (age 52), and I live in Maryland, USA. Hence the MD on my profile name (not a medical doctor!). I am brand spanking new to this world of trading. I have been watching tons of videos and reading books since November 2021. In January (2022) I joined the BBT community, and since then have been learning from all the videos on the site. I am just beginning to set up the DAS platform, and hope to begin simulator trading in a week or so. I am both immensely excited about learning more about this new world, while at the same time somewhat anxious. I look forward to learning from everyone here, and I hope this is the start of a new network of relationships and friendships over the years.

Peace!

Abraham

Hi! My name is Erik. I'm 39 years old from Norway. I have just started sim trading in DAS now. I have been trying to learn about trading on and off for a couple of years. have also done a little bit of sim trading at tradeview.com. Now I'm ready to dedicate more time to this and want to eventually daytrade for a living. I'm an amateur musician and currently works within the health field.  but I have studied some economics and have worked as an accountant earlier.

Hi everyone,

My name is Pierre and I'm from France. I'm 48 yeas old. I used to be an entrepreneur until 2018 when I sold my company. Since then, I'm investing mainly in real estates. I've tried trading since 3,5 years  now but never been profitable. I've tested various kind of products : laggards stocks (2 months), options (3 years), swing trading (2 months), Forex (2 months), cryptos but through DCA bots only (2 months an still going on).

I stopped options trading as I merely did 10% profit after 2 years of active trading (2020 / 2021). Hopefully, I can do more, here.

I'm OK with risk management. But, appart from options, I'm not consistent in my trading journey. I'm here to learn consistency and find confidence in trading strategies.

Cheers,

Hello everyone,

My name is Pedro (usually go by PJ) and I'm from Dutchess County, NY (about 1 hr north of NYC). I'm pretty new to day trading. I've ready a few books, has a little experience with other trading courses, I've gotten my feet wet with screen time and actual trades. I've had some good profitable days and even bigger losing days. With that said, I'm determined to make this work. I'm looking to network with individuals near and far (preferably near). It would be nice to meet like-minded individuals in person so if your in the NY area, or nearby (Penn, NJ, Conn) lets figure out a time and meetup, share ideas, experiences and strategies. My background is in law-enforcement and I'm hoping that day trading can assist me in an early retirement. 

Respectfully,

PJ
