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.

My 2 cents in no particular order...

24. There is something in the about risk/reward but that is a given. Every time you enter the market there is risk. I personally tend not to worry to much about it now as I have confidence in the way I trade.

Great list. Comprehensive. I place much more emphasis on risk than you seem to but that's just me. This gig is very personal. One size does not fit all. To say the least.

Quoting myself.....

Once your edge is present define your risk before each and every entry. If it is acceptable, take it.

Just regarding forum tools. The list icon is very helpful in creating lists as you did above.

Hello Guys,

I have been looking around and spending more than 30K on systems and soft wares to trade Futures, but It was not helpful, Still can not find any system or method with a profitable result, So I want to ask for the members opinion about this and see anyone has any suggestion about a room or method?
So I appreciate if you please help me and share your experience about any system or method that I can use?

Thank you so much for your help.

...this may sounds like a silly answer.....but ask yourself this-----how did someone figure out or 'create' their trading methodology 100s of years ago---?

even the last 100 years---how many 'theories' are out there that try to explain the market that someone noticed or figured out?

---learn to observe market behavior like someone on the discovery channel learns to watch animals in the wild--then somehow magically 5, 10 , 15 years later you may have an idea of where price may move to....
