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.

Interesting they went for IB again. I actually think they're ok their data still let's them down as a complete package (personal view) but a good all around choice.

Also I think it really depends in where you are based. If you're based outside the US (as I am) they have some big drawbacks in terms of moving your funds around. Slow is an understatement.

One more thing they waive a 10$ inactivity fee if you have a 100k account?! Personally I don't see that as a massive selling point.

I am surprised about the relative low rating of Livevol considering that they are an introducing broker to IB with an extensive options analytics platform.
