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.

Supplemental Upload for Download section?

As is now, when you add an indicator to the download section, you can add a .zip/rar/cs file and a picture.

Is there a way to add supplemental files, or would it be something that could be added to the site one day?

Say for example you have more of a 'system,' and you want to add a few indies, and a template to arrange these things on the chart initially.

Or if you wanted to attach a pdf file with more explanations or notes on the indie?

All of this could be achieved by just zipping everything in a zip file, and telling people to extract that zip first and get the separate files needed and the zip file for ninja. Or add these files to another location somewhere on the site. But that is not as cool as allowing the uploader the ability to attach multiple documents if desired.

Just a thought.

There is a current limitation of one file per entry. The download system was worked on last year, I spent a good deal of money and a lot of programming time trying to re-write and create a new system. Unfortunately, that programmer went MIA and the system is so complex it has not been completed.

Perhaps one day..


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
