I just signed up today as a member of Aussie Stock Forums and wanted to introduce myself. Not sure if introductions are compulsory here but thought it might be the polite thing to do anyway.
I carried out quite a bit of trading starting a little more than 5 years ago now but my trading came to a screeching halt about 3 years ago when I decided to delve into the property market and buy two houses, a decision that ate up all my trading capital. I then relocated to the UK and then to Turkey so finding time to get back into trading with everything else going on has been a challenge.
Ive just sold the houses and although I did OK from the property market, based on previous results I feel I can do better out of short to mid-term trading - although I need to remind myself it was a pretty strong bull market back then. They say that the best way to make a small fortune is to start with a big fortune and invest it in the share market. Id like to keep my trading capital intact (definitely neither a big or a small fortune) and so am interested in chatting and swapping ideas with like minded traders and investors.
Having lived in Turkey and lived amongst muslims for over a year now (still in Turkey but returning to Australia in December), I was a little surprised to how much anti-muslim sentiment there appears to be on this forum. I hope this isnt indicative of what Australia has become over the last 3 - 5 years...
