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.

Forget indicators

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

There is many ways to trade ES using gap information, much better than any indicators. I give this hint because fat tails is contrtibuting great info this forum.

Most of the time price will try to go mean or close the gap, using market profile or just gap info do much better job than any indicators, its need stamina, and wider stops, but it will work for you.
