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.

I'd expect there to be a bounce and capitulation before anything else. Just look at the indicators.

Talking Heads

When there is blood on the streets its about time to buy. Market breadth had a nice downward move today (Breadth of just over 300 stocks down more than 4%) but since we haven't seen the panic we're still going lower minus the bounces we'll have along the way.

Yes, in my calculations we are going down to the 120 level on the SPY possibly even lower; but we will get a huge and very powerful buying opportunity in the fall that could bring us back flat to slightly positive on the year...

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

Main discussion thread for SP500 is here:


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.
