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.

Honing my skills

I have been trading ES for a while. My equity curve has been stabilized for the past 3 years. Trading is a lonely business. I would like to hang out with like minded people and keep honing my skills.

Redbird scouting!!

Hey there, to all!! I'm a newbie trader who's been dabbling for 20 yrs!! All I have been told is that I'm gonna lose and lose big!!! I've been to a workshop from a trusted friend and wow, this can work w an edge and strict management!!! I started w a broker and I kinda got bled to death.... but it was my fault I followed blindly, even though my education told me one thing and the broker swayed me another, it was my own weak fault that I lost my ass!!! I feel that I have an edge and will try my method again in the next few months if an opportunity present a itself!! I'm using TOS unless someone can tell me differently!! I'm a commodity producer, I've dealt w the markets my whole life!!! That's me!!! Please send me all your thoughts and questions.......I do know technical analysis about half!!

Hi all

I live near Sydney, Australia and have been trading ASX and DAX Index mini CFDs (Contracts for Difference) for 4 years on and on. I consider CFD trading to be part of my education given the tiny size and capital commitments, but have the full intention to move to Index Futures. I'm a price action trader and am keen to learn from folks with more experience on this site.

Happy trading

I have been trading for about a year almost everyday, mostly ES and NQ. I had zero trading experience but had to find something that I could be profitable at regardless of location. I have not made a much money, but I still have the majority of my account as well and a ton more knowledge. Not sure if it is good...yet! I slowly add to my account hoping to grow my emotional fortitude in step with my financial. Regardless......I will trade for the rest of my life, therefore I better get good at it! Thanks in advance for any insight.
