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.

Don't trade yet. You should save your money build up capital, and learn and read and study the topics here as much as possible. When you are ready the market will still be there.

Investing in your education is the best way not to become a statistic.

Good luck.

I agree 100%, but I gave this same advice in another thread last night, and was attacked and ridiculed for it. Sill, it may be worth OP's time to at least see the counterpoint to what I feel is sound advice...

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the "Ask Me Anything" thread

In my book I just want to help with constructive and prudent and my friendly advice.

Don't get me wrong I'd never discourage anyone from learning and getting to a point where they can grow into a success, for me that's what places like this are all about. To help each other not lose all our money :-)
