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.

Yeah I read about this late yesterday... very sad news for those employees, but I think BofA's business model has been flawed for quite some time.

I don't know about you, but there are about 30 banks in a 3-4 mile stretch of a busy road near me. It is just insane. A bank on every corner makes no sense to me. This isn't fast food or gasoline.

And their purchase of Countrywide... no words for that...

So, I am sorry to see 40,000 lose their jobs, but it is only the beginning most likely. BofA may be too big to fail, but they aren't too big to make stupid decisions which lead them to insolvency.


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.
