hey everyone im new here and have been reading some of the threads for the last few days
my story, to give this post some context
ive some experience, having traded online with comsec. a few yrs ago - with mixed success im familiar with basic concepts like trendline - channel / range trading retracements pulls backs corrections watching volume stop loss trailing stop loss short term trading long term investing - and tools like moving averages etc
forex and asx
ive been practice trading at www.fxoanda.com -
some of you might be interested to know Oanda offers the use of a very good free platform on their server linked to the real market unlimited practice for as long as you like you have a practice account and make can make buy and sell orders that follow the real market, and itll keep track of your profit and loss - and access to a users forum just like this one to discuss ideas. The currency markets run 24/7 not counting weekends so you can practice whenever it suits your schedule.
Despite my months of practice, ive learnt a few things but still not good at it, so i decided to look at home, at the asx again.
Im at retirement age - facing retrenchment sometime in the next 3 6 mnths when I will have a comfortable amount for a trading account, but not enough to retire
Trading has to work otherwise ill be broke in a few years and too old for someone to employ.
But I really dont have confidence in myself yet being able to do this successfully so I was thinking of using a service or an individual who is confident and successful with their system, who it would only be fair to pay to guide me, while I still need it.
Im gonna need income - and id like to be able to do more for my kids, now in their 20s, before I leave this planet anyone on the forum who is a parent, will know what I mean .
Have been browsing a few sites out there like share select smtr trader ( Glen as you know contributes to this forum ) and I like glens smrt trader site and the chartist nick radge who also contributes to this forum he did a thread currently active, on trading with volume in fact I found out about these guys through links on this forum.
So thats my story tradings gotta work, otherwise Im up the creek without a paddle ! I started thinking about options trading last night too I dont fully understand them and id definitely seek advice!
By the way, anyone live in or near Bris ?
the email address ive set up for trading related stuff is email@example.com
thanks for listening everyone
