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.

first post

Hello. I trade the TF and stocks. I use Ninja. My mentors were Ted Warren and Burton Pugh. I have learned from many teachers over 20 years. I keep a Video trading journal and I constantly have breakthroughs on price action. I do better on stocks than the TF currently...but this will soon change. Every week brings more insight but not more cash. Hopefully this will change soon also. It will be nice to share and learn here on your site. Thank you for having me.

Hi everyone,

I'm an intraday futures trader, focusing on 6B. Taking the next 6 months to trade full time as my results have shown enough consistency to dedicate more time to trading. Looking to get into 6J and CL as they seem to respond well to my strategy's 'style', so if anyone wants to trade some knowledge drop me a PM!

I am a novice trader, still learning, and have not been successful so far. I appreciate it if you can share your knowledge of your strategy, that would be a great help.

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

Hello everyone,
I have been in the market for about eight years. It was like something I did in my spare time. I am looking to get more serious now, and move from investing to something more like swing trading of stocks. One of my first moves will be to upgrade my scottrade account to something better. I am thinking of interactive brokers. Naturally, any advice is welcome.

Ricks introduction

Hi Mike and All
I can't clams to be a trade as yet. The closest I've come is to have bought shares in an oil company called GKP, on the recommendation of a friend. He assured me that my initial investment of 15,000 would more than double within six months. Here we are eighteen months later and my holding is worth 10,000. So not the best of starts. What this experience has done however, is introduced me to the markets and their earning potential, if skilfully traded!
What I also realised is that if I wanted to dig any deeper into this can of worms, I'd better educate myself. So I went looking for information on trading. My inbox is now full to bursting with offers of mentorship, courses and systems that claim they can guide me to untold wealth! All so enticing. I won't lie to you I have been very tempted by a few. Thankfully whilst doing my due diligence on the final selection, I found your forum.
The last thing I want to be is a 'Lurker' but at this stage what I know about trading ain't worth sharing. With your help I hope to change that.
From what I have learned so far, I'd like to get into day trading, but I'm open to suggestions.
Im under no illusion that it's going to be easy and I'm prepared to do the work.
What I would really appreciate is a little guidance. What I need to learn and what to avoid.
Enough of my rambling. Looking forward to learning from you all and who knows maybe some day I'll be able to assist some other poor newbie.
