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.

Posting CL trades on FaceBook

Does anybody see any issue if I created a group called Crude Oil Trades to post some of my trades I executed on CL? Would this trigger any problems or potential issues? Do you think anybody would hold me liable for this?
I just wanted to get an opinion.

i dont really see a problem. just throw in a disclaimer saying that my trades are simply ideas and if you choose to trade them then trade at your own risk. Somethin like that

just curious though why would u wanna post ur trades on fb? are u tryin to help out friends or other traders? and are ur calls profitable overall? (if they are lol send me a link to the group)

Twitter is much more popular for this type of thing.


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 agree, I see lots of people posting trades on twitter, I would be concerned on facebook depending how you set it up. If you post a trade without a disclaimer for general consumption you could have a problem. I find twitter a good source of information for trading, I follow about 100 people on twitter and get some good stories/ideas on there.......

Yes Twitter is the best way to do this but you could then set up a Facebook Fanpage and link it to Twitter if you goal is to get people on Facebook to notice it. It would make sense to call it your personal trade journal and, as others have mentioned, make it clear that you are not giving trade calls. "Personal Journal" with the standard disclaimer would work great. Good luck.
