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.

Trying to Stay Sane

I have been trying to create an automatic system that I feel comfortable with. The systems I have created all seem to have flaws that prevent me from feeling confident in them. None are set and forget. All seem to be dependent on working during certain market conditions. So the key seems to be to find a means of determining those market conditions with confidence. So am I searching for a pot of gold or something that is real?
I use Tradestation and have become quite expert on EasyLanguage though I am tempted by Ninja and the C# experience. Just a little concerned about the learning curve.

New member, like trading grain futures. Always looking to build a better mouse trap. I write a newsletter to create accountability to my trading. I am series 3 registered. I'm always looking for traders that are good at what they do to exchange ideas and advance our mutual goals which is to make money. I'm a Cubs fan and think this is our year. Full disclosure, I've said that forever. I have a 100 lb chocolate lab who eats anything in front of him. Prefer biking to work everyday which has been described as hazardous to my health seeing I live in Chicago.
I firmly believe that when hard runs occur in trading, it's best to take a break and regroup rather than chase frustration. Don't always take my own advice. I know there's traders who do better work than me so I check my ego at the door. Would rather learn than puff my chest out.
Who's watching the grain markets?

Hello from New Member

Futures Edge on FIO
Hello All,

I've been focusing on money/risk management for the last 2 years as I didnít really know what I was doing before that. Iíve recently started working on the technical component of my system. I am very pleased that I found Big Mikes Forum. The quality and variety of information on the forum is excellent. What stands out the most for me is the willingness of the members to help each other and share their vast knowledge and experience. I feel privileged to be a member of this forum. Thank you to all those who willingly and unselfishly contribute and share. Thank you Big Mike for an outstanding forum!

Hi, I'm Kenr

I've been trading since late 90's. Successful and not. Especially recently.
I began to trust others due to being busy to "Auto trade". My latest adventure with Price Futures Group.
They promoted a belief they (Simon Townsend & Ron Mark) could make me up to $3000/mo. after fees & commissions.
Upset after working hard for the $15,000 loss and 3 daily scalp winners over 4 mos. period, I've stopped. Their own accounts have severe losses.
I've traded the Emini with the OEC platform but not that well no matter what strategy I've thrown at it.
The Canadian $ is an easier trade.
Hopefully some of you can help with the future results since I'm retiring.
I've taken multiple webinars for training indicators, all markets, Commodity Trading School and guests, TnT, optioins ed such as and Commodity Trading School and option trade of the day, Hubert Senters, Ryan Jones,many others.
Need help. Maybe should be doing algorithms only.
Would like to help anyone were I've been. I also would like inputs how how to improve after many years of trying, succeeding and losing.
Let's learn from our miss steps!!!

Kenr : egg:
