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.

Thatīs new, to me.

Iīm seeing my other broker. It allows to trade everything, CFD, stocks, futures, etc. For Futures, 1 lot (donīt know if is well translated) for the YM, the initial margin is $3125!!!

Is 1 lot (???) = 1 contract?

Yes 1 lot is 1 contract...same thing
See if you can open account with a U.S. broker there are a lot of them...go to the broker section here at (formerly BMT) and check some of them out. Some of them are even as low as $300. per lot/contract
