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.

Hi, I would like to introduce myself. I have traded the Forex market for about ten years. I have made money and lose money over the years. I trade part time, and not every week. I use FXDD as my Broker and the MetaTrader4 charts. I have tried to use EA’s to trade with little success. Back testing I have found does not work with the EA’s that I have used. The biggest problem I have discovered with the Forex trading is the “servicer speed” that the broker execute trades. In a demo account the trader make money. When you open a real money account most often the trader will see a big different in winner trades. This is due to the speed that the trade is executed at. Ask your broker: Do you use two different services? One for demo accounts, and a different service for real account. Have him tell you the difference. I use MS Excel spreadsheets to help me in my trading. If you used Excel with your trading, I would like to share ideas with you. If you have a question about Excel, I may be able to help you. I have used excel for over 25 years.
Good trading
