So I have made this request before without success but I'm being persistent as I'm sure there are some folks out there who are looking for the same thing. "Ask and you shall receive." I would like to connect with some quality folks who follow and trade the markets from a macro perspective (mainly focus on US stock market indexes, gold, oil, bonds and/or currencies). It doesn't really matter if you use futures, options, ETFs, etc. to execute on these ideas. The main goal would be to assist each other periodically on idea generation and help each other improve processes, mental game, reveal biases, etc. If you're someone who has some experience but is trying to get to the next level, then maybe you're the right fit for this. This isn't meant to be some formal commitment or anything like that. I just know that I need some other people in my trading circle in order to get to that next level. For full disclosure purposes, I view the markets daily (but I don't stare at screens all day as I have another career (work from home) that is the primary source of my income. I have a fairly extensive technical analysis background, teach behavioral finance at the MBA level and focus on momentum-trend based strategies, looking for mostly swing and position trades with the occasional day trade. My initial thought is that Trillian IM might be a good way to communicate ideas, share charts, etc. but other options such as Skype, etc. could work too. If interested, feel free to PM me. Thanks!
