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.

Yes trading live of course

I aim for point limits (these can vary depending on volatility) and last week I did 17 trades and hit them 60% of the time. The rest were closed manually for no loss. I am not one for the profit/loss ratio but more focussed on draw down. If you wait long enough many a loosing trade will come back to life. That is what trade management is all about. It just depends on what type of draw down you can handle and your understanding of the market you are trading.

As I said, some people might be quite happy to loose on 50% of their trades but for me that is something I try to avoid.
