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.

Thanks: 5 given, 6 received

I've been day trading forex for almost a year now. If you are new to forex trading (I'm assuming you are), I can save you some money and pain.

1. Don't buy into any signal rooms or services. Most are not worth it. Many are scams
2. Don't buy indicators. Most of the time you can find them free. (I've paid for access to strategies using free indicators).
3. Use DEMO until you double the account. Change your Demo fund to the exact amount that your live fund has. Once you have the skills to double your demo, then MAYBE you have the skills to trade live. (different mentality when its real money)
4. Use proper risk management. In a nutshell...for every $100 in your account your lot size should be .01
5. Aim for just 20 pips a day. You can increase your lot size as your account grows. Reduces your exposure to the market, reduces risk.

I've gone from a chart full of indicators to a chart with just Supply and Demand zones and line chart.
Currently I only place trades that large banks are placing, but ONLY if they match up with Supply & Demand zones.
I get bank trade info from this site.
I have an MT4 indicator that draws the S & D zones. very handy
