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.

Reverse Fundamentalism

Lately when I see a HUGE upsurge on a daily open, or when prices plummet way down it makes me wonder what happened? Was it a news report, or something tragic in a 3rd world country? It makes me want to look at the news and find out what exactly went on at 3:15am last night? (or whenever).

I think that's a valid reaction. Especially when the big news related moves will color the behavior of your instrument for the rest of the day.
For currencies (and often big moves in other instruments), this is my favorite news site:
Happy Trading!

Edit to add: Keep an eye on when numbers are different from what's forecast. This is what usually causes the big moves.
