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.

2. Actually, if you make money with a sim account under a realistic condition ie 1 or 2 cars per trade, stop for the day if max loss reach etc.. then you will make money with a real account.

I agree Cory. Realistic demo is what most people skip.


Trade with the same # of contracts you will trade in real life. Use the exact stops, and see if the profit target was exceeded to make sure your fills would happen in real life.
This would provide a good start.

Best of Luck!
