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.

welcome smiley

Welcome Smiley. I've been Sim for a year, will start trading in the new year. I highly recommend becoming an elite member and watching a big bunch of the recorded webinars available. Personally I'm into market profile concepts but use volume profile and auction theory etc. Like everybody, I guess, always trying to understand the market in a deeper way.
All the best, take good care. Aeolian.

My name is Smiley and I am an addict. I don't know how else I can explain being here on a Thanksgiving night. Could be Turkey and brandy wiped out my girlfriend and I am taking advantage of the opportunity. Nah. I am an addict.
I have been trading futures seriously for the least year, starting with Emini and now having moved onto Crude. My success is marginal with what I assume is a common theme. Lots of small wins undone by big fat losses. Still up on the year but its gotten harder of late.
Came to this site to steal some spreadsheets to track trading and am delighted to see the conversion to a futures site. Looking forward to sharing tales, tips, trades, and techniques with all of you.
Oh, this is day one with no trading. I feel good, surprisingly fatter and a bit sleepy. However, fully expect to be turning in my chip in the morning once the market opens. Good luck out there fellow travelers.

Hi all

Very happy to be here, looks like a nice and polite community.
I have traded for 2 years (forex both the spot and the futures) with success, using PA and Vol. then stopped due family reason, now i am slowly getting the grip again.
Happy trading to all

The Mind Of the Market refracts in patterns on the screen, hard to read. I live by you, desire. I stand by you, walk through the fire. Your love is my scripture. Let me into your encryption.

Initiation and consolidation; macro, micro. And me, and you.

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves/ Combing the white hair of the waves blown back/ When the wind blows the water white and black. We have lingered in the chambers of the sea/ By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown/ Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

100Kelvin ladder to clime ever higher, work ever harder. Lookin for the pineal-eye.

Mike, you do great work and provide an invaluable resource. Thank you.
