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'm from the Netherlands. I have been trading for a few years learning and trying out different strategies. I keep staying close to breakeven. I guess i'm lucky to have gained knowledge and experience without losing or spending a lot of money. Eager to learn more on this forum.

I've actually been a member here for quite awhile. In the past, I've only visited occasionally for a webinar or opinion on a particular subject. I'm beginning to become more regular here and appreciate the civil tone not found on some other discussion boards. I feel that my consistency is not as good as my knowledge base is. Hopefully, I'll be able to improve in that regard.

Market Monkey

Hi all,

Quick summary of my journey thus far:

Summer '06- Started with a seminar. Started reading a bunch of books (Think And Grow Rich, Trading For A Living..), websites etc.

Early '07- First live trade. I would spend the next several months trading at $32 per round trip on a small account ($3-6K) and STILL ended up about $200! No fear...

That summer, I took out a loan, did well for a couple months with my $50k account then proceeded to fall flat on my face with 8 losses in a row. Financially I controlled the risk. Emotionally, I was ruined.

I've since had isolated periods of profitability which has left me slightly down over my 7+ year trek. My attention turned decisively towards psychology and management of self in late '08 when I started my blog "OnlyTheMomo".

Hope to hear from other like-minded traders soon!:
