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.

Hello everyone,

It's been over a year I'm registered with, now, as I started to get interested in trading about that time. I'm 42. It's never too late to start you'd tell me

So after doing some research and training I want to take my trading to another level, going cash around September.
It's really great to have such a big community around trading, and thus could be really time consuming as well, I always find something interesting to read !
I will certainly go for day trading the ES. I'm already with Ninjatrader brokerage with their platform and think it's really easy yet powerful software.

Wish me luck, any advice will be more than welcome

Bonne chance Patrick!

If I flip a coin 1,000,000 times, what are the odds of me wasting my time?

Hi Everytrader and BigMike,

I am 44 which is time to change or move to other level, been trading more than 10 years but only make profit
from last year. Learn a lot of trading stuff...... but at the end there are two things important to me.
1. understanding myself (how I see markets and how I react).
2. risk/money control (profit = income, loss = expenditure).

Instrument: oil cl, yen 6j
Software: NJ --- beginninger

Good day all
