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.

I got (leased!) my IDEM membership not for it's trading privileges but because it made me an Eligible Contract Participant ("ECP") under the commodity exchange act. Having ECP status enabled me to trade a lot of Over-The-Counter energy products, and trade on ICE and IDEM was (probably still is) the cheapest seat I could get. Since Dodd-Frank though, nearly everything is now a regulated future and as such the ECP designation is no longer valuable.

I now have (lease) the NYMEX seat for the reduced fees. 1000 lots a month and it's paid for.
