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.

New Trader Intro

Hey everyone,

I'm a recent college graduate and have been trading equities off and on for several years. Like most, I've been paying my tuition and learning from my mistakes along the way. I was originally brought to this site by an interview that Mike did with Dr. Gary Dayton regarding the Wyckoff method.

Looking forward to contributing to (formerly BMT)!

Hello to Everyone!

I discovered this site 1350 days ago, I am reminded that I have not contributed to the forum since. Like most new traders, I was busy trying to learn the market and the different instruments used to gain advantage in making profit. I enjoy making a few change here and their, but I always asked myself if the market is somehow rigged. Then, the subject of electronic trading and high speed computers are being discussed. Then, the inequality of orders being filled are being questioned but nobody knew how to correct it. Here comes a segment on 20/20 which aired on March 30,2014. They discussed how the big Guns of Wall Street are behind this trading style that created an advantage in there favor at the expense of all participants in the marketplace. Transparency is a word used by many, politicians and others who professed to be the good guy but it is a loose word. Wall Street, certainly does not abide to the tenet of being transparent if they continue to embrace this behavior. Something has to change so, small investors like me and others can participate in the market place where we trade equally.

Mr. Big Mike, I hope this meets the required introduction to move to the next segment of the forum. By all means, many thanks for this opportunity.

Aloha!!! Ktrader2 Thank you!

Thanks for the Forum Mike


I have been an active trader of the ES, NQ and 6E for the past 5 years.. My charting platform has been TOS and just downloaded Ninja7 via my broker. From the start I think I am going to really like Ninja and this community.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to participate.

new here just saying hello.
mainly looking at asian markets, current focus on kospi as it's one of the most liquid in this time zone
preference to auto/systems trading for scalability and slightly less emotional factors

Technology overload...

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

Hi all,

Been skirting about this forum for about a week, minimal trading as I'm looking into (another broker, data, platform (NT) etc....) trading futures(!) having been just spot forex for the last few years. Great forum and information, everyone seems ready to help and there's great interaction.

Looked at all sorts of 'stuff' but initial thoughts are;

1) Platform NT
2) Data - IQFeed
3) Broker - RJ O'Brien
4)OFA for additional entry criteria...

Interested in any thoughts/feedback....

Back now to the forex dungeon!

The time isnow

Hello everyone, I am Colin, a teacher and I have know that there must be a better way to make a living other than working for someone else and to me one of these ways is trading for a living. I have tried come paid sites and have been left utterly disappointed, hence the reason I am wary about paying large sums of money for indicators and the like. I am interested in taking responsibility for my learning and trading and so today begins a new chapter in my life.
