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.

I'll try one more time... then I am backing away slowly from this thread

Why do you insist on trading this way, when everyone points out you should not? I will try to rephrase since maybe that doesn't translate so easily for you. (btw, your English seems fine to me)

Your Method = Bad, terrible, not good, crazy, insane.

We, us, members, traders = Telling you stop, do not do this, cease, terminate, no more, please, begging, stop.


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.

I allready posted this thread. some of those what I am using,
for ES, I am not using any traditional "indicators", market profile is most important tool for me, I just trade when markets open and try to get usually 2-4 points, I really not know exact rules , I am looking where ealier POC's are and where price is just before open, relation ealier value areas and POC's then I choose which direction i will place my bet.
If I feel i don't have clue what market will do or my stops are in danger zone, that there is great possibility price will hit, i will not trade. I have been practicing 5 years and now it gives me more than i loose.

You can google "virgin poc" thats maybe nearest method how I trde.

I am full time trader and not have any other income.

Other instruments different story.

I am usually avoid a heated debate or causing some doubts for people so I think
it is best for me to stop posting everyday.

How about this :
I will post PL once a week at Friday just to share with everyone how I am doing.
Sharing all I have to give it back to many great traders' posts I learn in the pas.



I truly do only wish the best for you, nothing else. My posts are not intending to dissuade you from posting or to be offensive to you personally. Only to hope that you reconsider your approach or take some more time to evaluate.

Like Mike said your English is plenty good and your knowledge is decent enough, but you need some more TIME TO EVALUATE because most likely the odds are against you. I truly do not hope so, but I have a limited belief that is telling me so. You can prove me wrong, but this is not a challenge to do so!
