    Hey guys
    I'm currently living in Canberra, Australia. I've been trading stocks and forex for 2 years now. I have a sound understanding of technical analysis in many aspects.
    I'm really searching for someone who's truly mastered the art of trading and turns over big profits, who might be willing to show me the ins and outs of what they do. I would be willing to travel and take care of everything else. I'm really relying on the empathy of the potential bigger players out there to think back when they were struggling and help a newcomer out.
    I believe it is really essential to be properly mentored by someone who has greater experience.
    I've tried several online programs that teach technical analysis where discussions can be had, but I have found that doing things online simply doesn't cut it.
    Basically, I'm seeking for someone to take me onboard and let me sit in the passenger seat to observe and learn while they trade.

    I am not a big player in $ terms but I manage trading accounts for 7 people at this point with ~$170k in the market. I combine technical analysis and fundamental, but I'm more a fundamentals guys. I bought in big in retail in Feb, before the big run up (think SUL,RFG, etc). I'm always happy to shoot through ideas to each other.

    The wiser the fool gets, the more money he makes

    Hey guys,

    I am 23 and fairly new to the stock market (5 months in the market) and have done extensive reading on TA and FA prior to starting (6-8 months) my quest in the share market. As the same poster above, I use a combination of technical and fundamental analysis (equally balance, not bias towards one or another) .

    If Garretjones starts a group, would be happy to join up since our ideas are similar :p

    Started my trading account on the first day of the financial year and am up 16% as we speak, breaking my method down in the most simplest way, fundamental analysis on stable/strong companies and technical analysis after to determine entry/exit points. Using only trend trading and breakout trading strategies, I would say that I have been pretty lucky so far:)

    Worst loss - TPM when it fell 20%+ in a day but in hindsight a sell signal was there (just too busy with work at the time)
    Best gain (currently holding) - BGL / CCP (both from breakout trading) & WEB (trend trading)

    Please to meet you :)

    Hey guys,

    Portfolio was in play since April/May (started off by riding up the end bits of the lithium excitement if you would call it) and I did go through the Brexit day when my total portfolio was down 4% in that one day :(
    Maybe it is beginner's luck but who knows, don't mean to come off as a show-off, just wanted to share what i had.

    Some started at the start of the tech boom, others started at the top of the GFC, i started in a very confusing world where one moment its good news and the next day is SELL EVERYTHING :)

    Still got a long way to go from here on no doubt about it but happy to hear what you have to teach:) CanOz you did mention that you trade EU hours on a different post about mentoring?

    Regards,
    Rypieee
