I have read a lot of posts on here, weeded thru a lot of junk, and have picked up some info too. I wanted to see if I could inspire some of the experienced successful posters to contribute to this thread to give insight onto their trading strategies. I know some people like RS7 and a few other have already given a little insight into what they are doing and that was great. I have read a lot of threads and posts talking about the mental side of trading, on finding a strategy that fits your personality, and on some more interesting subjects that a lot of times is good info but does not translate into how I can take this and start making money with it. I know there will be some that think this is a dumb post because the are not about to share their "secrets". So I would hope to have posts from those you that have trading styles that are more scaleable so as not to effect your results and who really believe there are no trading secrets (which I have heard many times on ET). Also I think several people using the same strategy won't all necessarily be successful with it. Being more specific than "just trade the trends" would be nice. People using indicators would define a trend in a different way than someone who uses indicators. So what makes you get in a trade? What makes you take profits? What makes you not trade? What kind of swings or pain do you have to endure? There are still people making money in choppy markets to so obviously they are doing something differnet. Questions like these would be insightful. I am asking this because even a person with the greatest mindset and view of the market still won't make money if they are using the wrong strategy that does not fit the market. Anyway hopefully we can get some good posts on here and stop the indicator/non-indicator trashing argument by showing there are ways to make money with both methods. It would make more sense for posters to actually be trading real money and not paper trading.
