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.

Cheers from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Hi there,

I am a Brazilian trader with 4+ years experience as a self employed full time trader.

I basically scalp future contracts and do some swing trades at obvious support and resistance moves at BMF/BOVESPA our only brazilian exchange.

I have decided to join this forum to learn more about automated trading on multiple markets and to develop some basic strategies for day trading and scalping to help me trade more then 2 instruments throughout the day.

Thanks for all the info you share! I will be more then happy to assist you all too.

Better late than never

I came to Big Mike's looking for something specific (a Price Action Swing indicator) and have already spent too much time just poking around. This is really an incredible resource. I missed this place all these years by being too narrowly focused on MultiChart's own forum.

I have been trading futures for 7 years and finally quit my software product management day job four years ago today. I started using a automated swing trading system developed by another fellow, but when his system kept throwing nothing but shorts into the teeth of the massive up market, I pulled the plug. I also found that I wasn't sleeping very well when in positions overnight / weekends.

For the past three years I have done nothing but day trade TF using several different algorithms that I developed on the MultiCharts platform. I've done fairly well, but my current method could benefit greatly from the addition of a good swing plotter. I came here to see if anybody has pursued a MultiCharts version of Dorschden's NinjaTrader Price Action Swing indicator. I didn't find anything on the MC thread and I'm still reading through the main thread on that topic. Only about 90 pages to go!

I look forward to absorbing the incredible amount of community knowledge on this site and contributing if I can.

Great to be here at long last!

I'm a Brazilian Home Broker with +/- 4 years experience, trading only at BOVESPA, a Brazilian Stock Exchange like Dow Jones. I'm now mostly interested in getting Forex experience in order to have more flexibility.

I'm from South Africa.
I have bought and sold (mostly held) a few stocks on my local exchange for some time (opened broker account in 2003).
More recently in late 2013 I opened an international account.
I've made some really dumb purchases (read opinion piece, think the author is spot on, dive in and BAM! stock tanks.
The I started paying more attention to the "comments" sections which followed opinion pieces and probably learned more from those than the articles themselves.
Instead of obscure stocks I started buying more "recognized" tickers and am doing better with those.

I "played" briefly with the broker's built-in technical analysis suggestions; some worked, some didn't. Subsequently changed brokers so haven't done much along those lines in a while.

Then something got me started on options. I've had mixed success; some very good successes in the beginning which made me a bit too bold and ended up giving back pretty much all (maybe more) of the gains.
Started looking for suggestions on how I could do better which led me to various websites of people punting their products; while searching for a review of one of those I ended up on a thread here!

I'm hoping to learn a lot here. I may read more than I post; bear with me if I do post some (possibly stoopid) newbie questions!

Hello BMT


I found this site while looking to hedge on some commodity production that I am engaged in and take some speculative positions. I have been trading equities through a discount broker here in Canada. Now I am trying to figure out how to go about trading commodities and limiting my currency risk exposure.

New To The Forum

Hello Everyone,

I am a new member to the forum. Not new to trading as I have been in the markets since 1995. I want to say thank you to Mike &
all the members for having me onboard. I do have one question if I might ask. Has anyone ever heard of, or purchase a product by Bruce Kenison called Market Timing Home Study Course 5th addition. I hope I am not out of line asking this question & if I am I stand corrected.
Oh, by the way I did not pick the name Nostradamus because I can see into the future, but I just find him to have been an interesting person.

Thank you for any response.
