    DK .....sweety, sweety daaarling! If I was talking about one of my beloved trans I would use the description of exotic and flamboyant, never interesting. I would also raise the pitch in my voice.
    Really interesting (using my normal deep voice) means there is a collection of the brilliant, the knowledgeable, the fakers, the learners, the d!cks and the really profound gentleman for whom you would walk the extra mile. :)

    Hi,

    Just joined up, know nothing, got hammered with cryptos after getting swept along for the ride, think it is now time to get serious and plan for a future where I can actually plan to live.

    cheers

    Welcome b1gcr4ig. With the market currently in a correction now might be a good time to look at some potential entries into stocks but who knows where the market is headed from here.

    @Austwide

    I use ProTrader as I have found it very simple to use and the owner Frank Watkins also has a very good book aimed at people like us. Another reason I like the software is it is cloud based therefore I can access it on my tablet when at work as I am FIFO and dont want to carry another laptop with trading software on it. He also does a Friday broadcast where he goes through some scans and comments on breakouts, volume etc.

    I have subscribed for maybe a year now but will start checking out something a little more advanced next year but maybe that is just me wanting to run before I can walk ;)

    Cheers Trav

    @Trav. gave you a great suggestion & here is mine..

    The software program I have elected to use is ‘Amibroker’ a powerful yet inexpensive charting program with the unique ability to code and implement your own strategy or you can purchase a trading strategy off-the-shelf.

    With Amibroker and a data supplier such as Norgate ‘Premium Data’ you have a complete self-sustained package to create and implement your own trading plan.

    Skate.

    Hi all,
    This will be my first post, seemed like the place to put it =)

    I have been trading very "safely" now since i was around 23, blue chip and slow return type trading. I have spent months now researching day trading and am looking to change my style to something more aggressive. I'm currently only trading using nabtrade but it feels clunky ( could be be haha). Is there something more live and fast trading, a more suitable platform that would suit a beginner.

    Cheers, Josh.
