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.

"my morning trading session (spot EUR/USD in this case) comprised 80 scalps for a total of +73.3 pips (approx. 0.92 pips per scalp)."

holy smokes. Did you melt the keyboard...? Your broker will be sending you a Christmas card this year. Nice job to end up in the green/black/profitable side of things

The World according to ThatManFromTexas ....

1. You can not predict chop.

2. You will know you are in chop after you have a couple of losing trades.

3. When you realize you are in chop ... stop .

4. You will know you are out of chop when you miss the breakout.

5. Most chop filters filter out as many good trades as they do bad trades.

6. Learn to watch for price compression / decompression

TMFT, thanks for the input and help in this thread.

Besides seeing compression and decompression how else do you use the Bollinger Bands to enter and exit?

Thank you,
