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.

Introduction...(a bit in late)

I subscribed this forum sometime ago. I was a little skeptical at first, usually trading forums are made of frustrated people looking for someone else to address their frustrations. This is defenitely not the case, it's actually all the opposite and it's made of people with passion for their job trying to improve and help each other. There is a lot of equity here, and I'm not talking or just talking about p/L.

I was now thinking that I never introduced myself, I'm very reserved so I don't like to speak about myself too much but at the same time I have been educated to good manners and I know that an introduction is due before entering someone else house so I'm a bit in late for it and I apologize.

As regards my background, after a very positive business venture in a different field,I founded 6 years ago a proprietary trading company focused on emerging cash markets.
I've been lucky to work with some very good and professional traders from whom I learnt a lot. What we did is basically market making and scalping low value but with high daily volume stocks.
We traded Polish, Australian, Singapore, Turkish, Japan, Brasil, TelAviv and some others.

Some weeks ago I took the decision to close the company, even if our trading profits are still decent, it's everyday more difficult to apply our strategy to the markets so I feel like I just anticipated what in the long run would have been the natural end.

A couple of years ago we started developing also some automated trading strategies working on futures, continue working on it and moving to trade future markets is defenitely a plan.

Since I subscribed, I feel like I have just taken from this community. I hope I can give back something in the future.
