  • 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.

I'm currently using 4-5 points for NQ. How about you guys?

I think 4-5 points stop is too much for me as the trend always ends in 4-5 point too...

Learn key levels... enter in the direction you thinks its going, then if price reverses on you, watch the next key level where price is going against you, if price beaks that level you better know your next big target(key level) in that direction so you can make up your lose for being wrong in the first trade.its easy!!!! understanding probability and being able to make it up is key,I never think about how much only levels of support and resistance.

In closing learn how to trade, manage risk, trade size per account size. you ll live alot longer
