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.

Hey guys,

My brother is a day trader and loves this forum, I see him on it all the time haha. Im still very much a novice, working on my demo account trying to get a feel for Forex. Hopefully by the time Im comfortable trading, I'll have enough savings to make it worthwhile.

Until then, I'll be lurking around here, trying to silently absorb your wisdom.

I'm new here so thought I'd introduce myself . . .

Been trading for a little while and have a good working knowledge of programming EasyLanguage for TradeStation and MultiCharts. I'm no expert though!

Most of my trading is what would typically be called "swing" - mostly I hold a position for three or four days.

Hope to get to know all of you around the forum.

New Guy Here

I am an intraweek swing trader who has been involved in the markets in some way or another since '99. I got started as a customer equity trader using money I made from selling a startup that failed miserably.

As a member of the "bull market geniuses", I eventually gave more than half of my unrealized earnings back during the crash. Unemployed and still convinced that I could be a real trader a friend of mine talked me into getting involved with the futures markets. Like most, I got my but kicked for several years, losing the little profit I had made during the bubble and then some.

Luckily for me, my girlfriends aunt had a boyfriend at the time who was a real pro. This guy said he only had a few losing days a year and I believe him. I know everyone says that it is impossible, but with the size he traded and some contest he had won in the past so I do not know why he would lie. Anyways after some coaxing he eventually agreed to teach me. Unfortunately he had some health issues and was really moody. I think a few people around here may know who I am talking about, so for the record I do appreciate everything he did for me and always will, but you know I am right.

Anyways, he made me draw my charts by hand and do nothing but homework for most of the first year. Whenever I tried to get straight answers about how he did what he did he always dodged my questions. Eventually I guess I had jumped through enough hoops and he started to actually teach me. Even though he acted like he was a system trader, he so called system was so complex it was really discretionary trading using multi timeframes.

It took about a year but eventually my discipline got straightened out and I started to get confident with it all and started live trading. After awhile we ended up having a fallout and I couldn't work for him anymore so I went out on my own in 2007. I managed to survive on my own although it was rocky at first but I got really lucky in '08 and '09 and ever since '10 I have been semi-retired, living a simple but good life while only having to spend a few hours a day at the charts.

However my situation has recently changed as I have a baby on the way and need to get more serious about my business. The last thing I want is to increase my risk levels again so it is my goal to pick some programming up and try and find some solid people to hire so that I can automate some of my methods. I may also do the series 3 thing and try and find other traders to work with on a fund.So I guess if anyone here is experienced with Ninjatrader programming or is a registered CTA and live here in the Bay Area, please let me know if you are interested in chatting.
