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.

Hello to all

This looks like a great place to interact with active traders. I've been trading stock and index options on TOS for almost 2 years now and find it to be fascinating - guess I'm hooked. I am an intermediate trader and I am still making too many mistakes - I am close to breaking even. When I do that I will have achieved my first trading milestone!

I hope to get involved and learn and help where I can.

Hi Traders!

Glad to join such an amazing community of traders. I've been sim'ing for about a year and a half now and finally got my live account all set up. Really looking forward to making my first live trade.

I've only been on here for a few short weeks and already I have learned so much from people's threads, posts, and webinars. Really looking forward to continue to learn from everyone

Cheers to a prosperous 2015!

Hi, I've been trading off and on for 30 years, mostly Mutual funds, etf, stocks. Just started exploring options, and day trading SP500 Emini futures. Having some fun getting accounts set up in Canada for Futures Trading!

Currently trying to develop an income stream to avoid having to go back to the mind crushing bleed you dry corporate world.

Howdy from Austin

Been here off and on. Decided to introduce myself.

I am into technical analysis, stock selection ideas, and so far the best edge and leading indicator I have found is the use of median lines, or pitchforks.

I also aim to improve my skill in Timing, Money Management, and Emotional Control.

Right now, I independently trade stocks and options.

Hello Big Mike, Hello Traders,

I have been studying to become a trader my whole life and I did not even know it This is a community that I hope to continue to build with and help continue to build. With prior experience in equities, I am new to futures and currently learning and practicing only one simple clean method based on 555 tic charts using keltner chnls paired with extra smooth ema's for entry and exit points. At times fib ext where needed for retracements and targets.

I trade mainly the ES right now and will not change until I master (in my own opinion) the ES even though the temptation is always around.

Like Big Mike, I also believe the following:
I will not add any new indicators, methods, nor oscillators or such to my trading because keeping your charts clear and focus on structure is where I believe the strength in ones consistent trading patterns lie. I will develop myself to consistency by learning from everyone here and helping those that I can help along the way.
Thank you all for the future support and the resources you provide to the community!

Tried my hand at trading ES contract in 2009 after taking a course on the internet. Did okay at first but got a bored with it and started inventing my own rules....or no rules at all....just seeing what would happen. Did this for about 3 months and shut it down and started trading leveraged ETF's and have been ever since. Thinking of re-opening a future account and getting back into it. Dave
