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 everyone, I've been day trading for a few months now and I'm always looking to learn more from other day traders. I currently trade with a small group online through a chat room. The owner of the chat room has basically taught me setups and entry points. I do fairly well for a while and then have my losing streaks. My biggest problem is waiting for setups and trying to guess instead. I figured I could read others stories on this forum and learn from others mistakes.

Good to be here and hope to contribute!

Hello....I am new to the forum and trading too. As you have started just a few months back, would you be able to recommend some GREAT books or resources? I have searched the books online but want to get recommendations for recent beginners.

Response would be much appreciated.
