    In honor of the late Bob Korreck I figured we would continued this tradition here at Stockaholics.net as well. ;)

    I was looking all over for this thread earlier today. :p

    I've been noticing a nice influx of new members joining Stockaholics so I thought we could give this thread a bump.

    Firstly, before I begin I want to give a huge welcome to all of our new arrivals to Stockaholics.net!

    As the late TTT ( :( ) posted above, feel free to tell us where you're from, what your trading experience is (whether a novice or pro), your interest in the markets and what you're currently trading/investing in, and a picture to boot (albeit not required) would be cool as well to put a face to the name! :D

    Here is my brief intro:

    I used to be an extremely active trader back when I had first discovered this community in the fall of 2006 (yes, I've been a member here coming up on 12 years now! :eek:). I was posting a lot of T/A-related content in those days (this was when the community was originally known as HSM). I'm not actively trading much nowadays anymore, I've move into a more longer term strategy. But, I still try to come around to help keep this place active and running, as I think there is so much potential for this community to grow even more. Back on our HSM years this was a very busy trading community with hundreds of people logged in and posting on the forums simultaneously pretty regularly. I've noticed a lot of new faces joining us as of late which has been really great to see. Welcome to all of our new members!

    Oh and as for my pic, here ya go-

    (Yeah I got my Cam Newton Panthers jersey on...they are out of the playoffs now but still am a huge fan. :p)

    How about the rest of you guys? Let's hear 'em (and maybe even see 'em as well! :D)

    Retired a little over 2 years ago at age 50. Worked a desk job, but with lots of travel. Taught myself swing trading back in mid-90s and built up a chunk of change, which I essentially cashed out at the height of the market just before the dotcom bubble burst in order to buy a house in the Washington, DC area. Talk about luck! In the new century, my investing/trading accounts and home value grew and grew, so in 2015 decided to quit job, sell house, and now travel full-time.

    Today, I generally "invest" in stocks. My swing trading these days is mostly for grins, and primarily done with longer-termed options (12 to 24 months out) as I find them very forgiving and relatively easy to unwind or hedge for when I anticipate being off the grid for awhile. I never tried day-trading and have no intentions to start!

    Not to be overly mysterious, but I value personal privacy and ambiguity more than anything, so the photo below (trekking the Andes in Peru) is the best I can do.

    Fun!

    I joined up back in January just last year (2017)... with absolutely zero prior knowledge of the markets, other than what id seen in movies... great site with a great bunch of guys n gals kind enough to share their expertise and insight on a daily basis

    When I'm not stalking my next trade or steering 18 wheels + 40 tons of steel and liquid petroleum gas down the highway... you can find me at the lake!

    Hello,howdy n stuff.

    Tim here, otherwise known as Timbo, just your average, Ole country dude. Like JRICH I'm a commercial driver "triaxle dump" for a larger local constructor, primarily involved in pipeline,utilities,infrastrucure.

    Enjoy playing in the markets, more of a trader though and tend to lean on the option side. 2017 was the learning curve, tried several different styles and methods and finally found my niche. Took several hits but knocked the dust off and got back in the saddle, know stuff that I didn't realize then so it's helped me tremendously. 20180111_232952.jpg

    Nice pics fellas! Thanks for posting. It's really cool to finally be able to put a face to the name now! :D

    Here's another photo w/ my niece while @ the Carowinds from this past summer.

    I'll be honest, I've never been much of a theme park person, but spending it with my niece (and soon with my nephew perhaps by this summer) it was actually quite fun. I gotta give it up to my niece though. She is one fearless girl. She was taking me up on those really tall roller coasters. For a 9 yr old that is really quite impressive!

    Hey everyone!

    Returning member here. Had an account back before the forum name change. Was mostly just a lurker who didn't post much except for the monthly stock pick contests.

    Anyways, I mostly follow the markets as a hobby and only have some small accounts right now.

    Just wanted to come back and keep learning!

    BTW my name is Mike.

    Here is a quick pic from Bear Lake this last summer.

    Hey welcome back Mike! :)

    I think I recall the handle from the old HSM board. Good to have you back man!

    Speaking of the stock picking contests, that is still going on here. In fact, we've really expanded on these since our days on old HSM. We went from having just a monthly contest on HSM to now having pretty much every format imaginable. Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly and even a Yearly contest. :p

    It would be pretty awesome to have you participate on these.

    Simply hit up the "Competitions" tab at the top of the page in the navigation bar. You'll find all of our active and upcoming contests right in there.

    Hope to see you actively participating in the discussions here!

    Welcome back, hope to see you around! The best way to learn the fastest is to get involved - ask questions, bounce ideas around, etc.

    Hi, i see this thread hasn't been active for quite a while. Will introduce myself nonetheless. I'm a 41 year old trader. Started out trading when i moved abroad and decided i wanted to create an income regardless of where i lived. I was introduced to the industry through Binary Options first and i got my fair share of pain and suffering from a couple of account managers and 'corrupted' brokers. That however drove me to actually learn how to trade and towards the forex markets, i never looked back at BO. I started studying price action, dropped all indicators and finally ended up adding volume back to my charts as i stumbled on Wyckoff style trading. I have been studying since. I really like to transfer to trading stocks now but have been postponing for some reason yet unknown to me. :)
    I found this forum through the Wyckoff thread and registered to be able to study the posted charts, no turning back now :p

    Welcome aboard! Glad to hear you found this forum through a google search for Wyckoff. We have a few traders who trade using that strategy including our expert @Onepoint272, and his apprentice @Jrich who has really come a long way simply by asking questions, posting his thoughts, and then fine tuning his process. Quite amazing to see.

    Looking forward to seeing you around!

    Hey traders, I only started trading about a 1.5 yrs ago and have come a long way and more to go. I mostly trade forex but was always interested in stocks as well. So why not join a forum of stock traders. My style of trading, when I started was a lot of indicators eg. MA, RSI, and Stochastic but my charts are clean and simple. I have moved on from lagging indicators to Price action >> Harmonics >> no I'm onto Wyckoff Method, I still use PA and Harmonics for my analysis. My journey has been enjoyable so far and would like to learn from members and in addition, give back to the community. I'm from a beautiful island form the Caribbean :).
