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.

As a way to pay it forward, I decided to make a list of what I found most useful to read and watch as a beginner. I was hesitating to do it, because as a newbie I obviously do not yet have ability to skillfully judge the material. So if you are a beginner yourself, feel free to use this list, but have in mind that this is just my uneducated opinion.

1. Some introductory reading here at (formerly BMT): (+ rest of the thread) (+ rest of the thread)

2. Webinars on order flow:
Order Flow Scalping w/John Grady No BS Day Trading -
Order Book/Order Flow Scalping Strategies w/Ferran Font Ramentol -

3. Webinars on psychology by FT71:
Early Webinar FuturesTrader71 | Trader Analysis 2011-09-01
The Holy Grail - Expectancy & Habits
Statistical Analysis for a Broader Edge

4. More FT71:
Volume Profile, Trading Hard Right Edge
On Volume Profile
Getting Started Scalping

5. A few more relaxed things to watch (how NOT to do it ):
Millions by the Minute -
Million Dollar Traders -

6. Some nuggets of knowledge:
E-Mini Player: EMini S&P 500 Futures Trading Education and Analysis: Learning to Become a Successful Trader
My advice for someone starting out Trade With The Flow

7. More order flow:
Lesson 1: What is Order Flow Trading?
Free Tape Reading and Order Flow Training Materials
No BS Day Trading

This is not all that I looked at and I still have a few things in the queue, but I guess this is already more than enough, especially considering that someone new needs to google unfamiliar phrases and terms
