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.

Pull up two DOMs and it will become very obvious which contract one should trade.

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

Obviously watch the volume on the contracts but to be honest since 03/20/2012 is considered the last trading day for April i usually start trading May on the 19th.
