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.

Futures Edge on FIO
Hello Mike and Everyone !

I started trading roughly 5 years ago with spreadbetting first then I opened my futures AC and used InvestorRT for a year then I met with SierraChart and tried to find opinions about SC and came across (formerly BMT) first time. The reviews were great so I'm with SC more than a year now and coming back to (formerly BMT) since then. I got already SO MUCH out of (formerly BMT) that I felt to become an elite member is a minimum.
Obviously I have issues like everybody else but mine was so bad / fear to put on a trade / ... and then I saw @liquidcci 's signature and something clicked.

Here is a video /1st part/ which is very similar for me.

With respect...

Hi all,

Beginner here. I am a software developer with limited trading experience. I will probably start off just scouring the forums for recommended reading before deciding what I will want to trade.

Hello Mike,
I do algorithmic trading with NinjaTrader. The idea, programming in C #, I do. On my site (algotrader it) there are other details. Sorry for the English, but I use Google for translation.

Hi Guys

I have recently ventured into the territory of futures and more specifically have started to explore volume and market profiles, so I thought it is a great idea to join this community to learn and contribute....I have been trading Forex for 3 years purely on price action and have been member of James16 community another fantastic group (still new here but starting to see this forum and community is also a high quality one).

Having a full time job and a 9 months old boy does not make trading life easy but I guess it is down to focus and discipline.

Anyway good to be here

Thanks for the invitation. I have been in the markets for 5 years and a trader for 2. I am currently a member of an investment forum but am interested in interacting with traders. I primarily trade sector etfs based upon fundamentals, news, and sentiment. I like to describe myself as a 'mean reversion' trader. I have had good success at this over the last two years. I look forward to sharing ideas with all.

Hi everyone

my name is James and I started day trading futures about 2 years ago. I've been doing much research on several instruments and getting an idea on how they trade. I trade in simulated mode only and plan to continue to trade that way until I'm sure that I'm ready to go live with a hard rock trading plan and consistent profits and a manageble risk strategy.

Several Big Mike users recommended that I join this forum to check out specific trading journals so that I can understand what good journals have.
