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.

My introduction

Hi Mike and all!

I am a financial analyst and consultant by profession, but being a trader is so much different: I have been trying to become one on and off since 2007, but only in 2010 I started putting in the unfaltering commitment that is necessary.

I think trading profession can only be learnt in one of two ways: either squandering vast fortunes, or finding a good mentor. I opted for the latter and started to look for someone. I found at first Saverio Berlinzani: a former Forex trader for some major European banks, but his teaching didn't fit my personality.
In the summer of 2011 I finally settled with Jeff Quinto after watching his Cme videos. I must say that his mentoring turned my trading (and also some bit of my life) to the better.
I have started to trade live just recently. My journey in Wonderland has begun!

All the best!

My name is Underexposed.

I have been looking for a troll-free TA environment to share ideas. Some may recognize my handle as I have been on Yahoo Answer/Business and Finance/investing since 2008. Yahoo ranks "best answers" by country and I am #1 for answers in that forum in Canada and at 2043 best answers if you look at the American version of that site I am ranked about 9th .... Both forums answer the same questions, actually they are viewed world wide.

I am not saying that I am the best...not at all but I have participated there for two reasons...I like helping newbies and I like sharing my approach to TA which is quite simple in look but powerful in result. While I am primarily a chartist I do pay attention to Fundamental analysis...for long term trading this is essential but not so much in daytrading.

I realize that this is a basically day trading site. I was referred here by a poster at another site that was plagued with trolls. I can help with TA for daytrading....I have some ideas there that may or may not be new. I will also learn some things as well and that is good as daytrading requires a different skill set than long term or swing trading.

My trading approach is basically long term swing trading or long term trading....something like 1 month to 3 years. I don't set out to go for 3 years but if I have chosen a stock well and TA says hold ... I will keep the stock.

I look forward to contributing to this website

Hi Everyone

I am a complete newbie here. Seven years into trading mostly day trading. Never blew up my account. Because I never put on each and every trade. And I have a wonderful trading system that has evolved into something better in these 7 years.
Hope to learn a lot of useful things here.

Hello, new user TLF

Hello, I introduce my self and I apologize in advance for my English very average.

I am trader for 5 years and I work on future on NT7.
I am part of a group of trader "Money maker edge" Francophone
I love the following markets: Fdax, Gc, Cl, Tf

My trading style and rather short term, but I get more and more to let the market breathe on a day that I am gaining its profitability last time, with a short Gc 126 tick

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

I love ShareActions but the language barrier hinders my share.

good day, oliver
