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.

what did...

What did you do different compare to when you were papertrading?

There is value in papertrading, you can eliminated a system that does not make money BUT even if you make money with simulated trading it is no way a sure thing you will make money trading real ca$h Why? fear and greed and lack of confidence in your system especially after 12 losers in a row even I would be affected.

It is very easy to see what you should have done after the facts but in the heat of the moment when you have no idea where the market is going after too many losing trades it just gets messier and messier.

Maybe the stop-loss was too close?

Maybe the stop-loss was too far?

Maybe you moved the stop-loss away?

Maybe you did not place a stop-loss?

Maybe you added to a loser? More than once?

Maybe you anticipated the signal?

Maybe you took the signal once it was really really sure but by that time the market did turn?

Maybe when you were practicing you were just erasing you bad trades to forget about them and concentrate on the winners?

Maybe you were too nervous?

Maybe you were not prepared?

Maybe you traded too many contracts?

Maybe you were not at your best(physically, emotionally)?

Maybe in simulation you were trading trending days and with cash they were choppy?

my recommendation: set a daily goal, achieve it and stop for the day. It could be as low as 1 point.
trade no more than 2 contracts: it is fun to take profit on the first one and let the other one run with a close stop.

but first of all tell me more about you trading with real cash:
what did you do?
How did you feel?
What was your confidence level after each and every trade?

C'mon let it out!
