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.

Not to burst your bubble, but your chances of getting useful information from that group is probably about the same as from a group of non-licensed amateurs who trade part-time. That is to say that the success rate is about the same in both groups. If you don't believe me, simply pick up any of several factual books written by seasoned pros to get the inside scoop. Books like "West of Wall STreet" or "Hedgehogging" or "Market Rap: The Odyssey of a Still-Struggling Commodity Trader."

I'm not trying to be disparaging. I just want you to be aware of the facts about the business. Take things with a grain of salt, including the things you "pay for."

I almost forgot about this website but I came back and this is what I found! What's disparaging is your assumption that I wouldn't do any research into anyone, that I simply take things at face value and I'd just go out and buy some book. I know floor traders personally and work with them directly, thanks for your concern.
