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.

1st post Newb

I'm a newb to this forum and to trading in general. I'm not yet trading even in a practice account, but researching, looks like NT and Big Mike's is the place to start. I nearly went into the industry out of college (15 years ago), interviewing multiple times for a commodities trading position with a fortune 50 company, but that fell through and I chose different career path. I've researched off and on over the years and am finally ready to apply myself consistently and see where it takes me. I'm amazed by the willingness of so many people to share information for the betterment of everyone, glad to be a part and hope to be a knowledgeable contributor in time.

Hello All

Glad to be here...
I had 5 years experience in stock and future trading. Not success in the first few years but made some money after getting to know about system trade and money management.

Now I'm going to start with options trading, still need to spend lot of times to study...

I just found the site doing a day-trade search. I've been successful on growth stocks for the last 3 years and am simply curious about the prospects of day-trading. Thanks for the welcome and I look forward to sharing experience and success.

Hi Everybody, Im new to trading, just reading and playing on a few sim accounts. This forum seems to have depth of knowledge so i decided to join and try to learn a few things. I fiqure in a few weeks I should be making truck loads of $ by staring at a squiggly line on my screen.
All jokes aside, Im trying to find out if I can trade on the right edge of my charts (without blowing it up and having to sell one of my rental houses to keep going).
At the poker table if you cant immediately spot the fish, you are the fish.
Right now Im pretty sure Im the fish. I think this forum will help. Mike did a nice job on it.

A Fellow Newcomer

Hello All,

I'm excited to have stumbled along this great forum to share thoughts and strategies.

I have been trading a little over a year now and understand I am looking at the tip of the iceberg with my knowledge. I'm currently using CQG trader and trade mostly grain futures.

I look forward interacting with other traders and learning a bit from others experiences.
