Hi Guys, I'm an old pommy London city trader that retired over here in this wonderful country, guess no matter how I try I can't stay away from the markets.
Despite being based in the UK, the desk I ran traded US equities and I have never traded the Aussie markets until a month ago, it's kind of different, especially on the short side but none the less a lot of fun and a new challenge. My wife insists I do this during the day and not stay up over night to trade the US, so here I am.
This is just a hobby for me to keep my hand in, I've got 100K play money to lose but so far, it's going well, but early days yet. Things are also a lot slower paced here which suits my old brain, I plan to do a mix of intra-day, swing and momentum trading, although have focused on the later initially. I like to focus on the low to mid caps as that is where I started in the markets a long time ago, as this is a hobby, they also provide the most fun.
I'm for sure with the worse broker around with ETrade and that is something I will have to look in to, seems brokers here are the worst in the world regarding costs. I also need to look at getting good trading software.
Anyway, I guess I am the opposite of a beginner but completely new to the ASX and thought I would say Hi, I'll likely list some of my trades in some of the stock forums so you can see where I enter and exit positions.
