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.

Appreciate the candid input @Amsterdam Whale .

I think what you've noted is something that applies to all - even successful - traders: many of us have our 'systems' and other confluence points that we look for to exit/enter trades. For example, I've noticed that when I am trading CL and using VWAP - it often coincides with a certain EMA or SMA (sorry, don't know which one or the value) which another trader might be tracking: I'd be on chat with him, and his EMA/SMA levels will coincide with the (ETH) VWAP levels, yet he does not use VWAP. It's a bit like when he is using ichimoku levels/clouds (which I know nothing about) and they coincide with fibs or POCs or something else I am using, as an entry/exit.

My point to the examples is that we as human traders usually can't track an inordinate amount of indicators or real-time variables, so, we choose something that works for us, yet, someone else is using something completely different, they can have similar/the same levels.

In the end, if each one is nicely profitable, and remains so, I suppose all is good, and we carry on with the trading 'system.' Some - myself included - are constantly trying to refining and trying to learn new things, discarding what may not work, and adding what does, to the toolbox.
