A few years ago I had another account where I just kept asking around about trading and how to get into it etc.
Well I just thought it'd be nice to come back to thank aussie stock forums for the advice/resources/skepticism provided here. I left uni and walked straight into a prop firm and Ive been finding success for over a year trading futures after spending a good 8-10 months of not making money at the start. Its great we have an aussie forum where we can discuss local trading stuff because we are a relatively small community compared to the epicness of the e-mini, dax, u.s. tnotes or german bund.
I am always happy to answer any questions regarding futures trading and definitely have absorbed a lot of knowledge from experts who have been involved in aussie products, as well as futures trading in general, for over 10 years. I know how the guys making 1 to 5 million a year think and what they're doing as well and its always very interesting to learn their psychology.
Now a a little about what I trade:
>Aussie Curve (3yrs and 10yrs Bonds)
> Hedging Aussie 10yrs with the U.S. 10-year Tnote
> Australian Bank Bill Butterfly spreads (1st/2nd/3rd butterfly)
> Spreading the Aussie SPI with the E-minis overnight
> Hedging Aussie Bank Bills with the Aussie 3yrs
And what i'm currently looking at
> Spreading the U.S. Tnote with the Bund
> Other European Bond products and hedging them with the T-Note, Bund, or Aussie 10yrs
> Other secret spreads
