Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Hi everyone,
I've been trading futures primarily ES and occasionally 6E and ZS since 2008. Mostly day trading but with occasional longer term folds.

On the plus side I've never blown my account but neither have I made much after commissions. So still waiting for the final piece of the puzzle to fall into place.

PS. Gave up trading oil after I was short at $140 ish just as the decline started and got out after a couple of $ only to see it collapse.

I am in the stock market since long but since my day time job I could not concentrate much on trading. Now I am retired and have sufficient time and experience I want to do the thing which I like Most. That is trading.
Thank you

Nothing Unexpected!

Nothing original with my story.

similarly, blew up accounts in 2007, since, have read tons of books, memeberships in forums and rooms, online courses, margin calls again.
After all, I understood that 50% of trading is psychology. Until you get right attitude towards trading and get knowledge about your emotions, you are on your way to the next "margin call".
Since 2010 April, working well.

Gann Square of Nine Indicator

Hi Gang,

really like being a part of this community. Have learned a great deal just by reading all the good input found here. I'm looking to see if anyone is familiar with the Gann Square of Nine indicator found in the ninja forum. I can't get those to download into ninja 7 was just wondering if anyone knows of where I could find it for ninja 7 users. Thanks Big Mike for supplying us with such a great and useful website.

I'm a 39 year old swede.

I've worked on and off with the internet since 1995 with a couple years off in the late 00s when I played professional online poker for about 3Ĺ years.

Before the crash I had some options in the company where I then worked and I cashed out on those to get close to $500,000 which I then placed in other IT companies and subsequently went down in flames. Like so many others I thought that stocks were easy and always went upwards.

Now a decade later I'm curious to back into the markets somehow and this time I'm a bit interested in Forex. I have read some and watched a lot of instruction materials from Steve Nison, Chris Lori, Martin Pring and others and now I feel I'm getting the grasp on some basic tools. I'm currently struggling a bit though on how to combine the separate tools into a working toolbox.

I've learned a bit about MT4 and also Ninjatrader (I do know C#) and currently only trading demo apart from a tiny sum I have on Etoro copytrader just for the giggles.

This seems to be a great community and I hope to be a part of it.

Hi all,

I'm a 31 year old former broker who worked for a clearing house who recently screwed the futures business. I had an account in the early 00's that I punted around and never really made anything out of it. I'm not giving this a go full time and having trouble admitting when Iím wrong and taking a loss. I enjoy this site as it's a form of interaction with others doing the same. I mostly trade CL but will trade the metals and CC's if I see an opening. I hope Iím around long enough to get to know some of the big guys on this site. Good luck to all.
