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.

Just take a look at the way that the market is trending or "leaning" on a very short time frame right before the news comes out. Most of the time it will take off in that direction, so get in right before the news with a reasonable stop and take your chances. The risk/reward is worth it if you know how to read it and where to place your stop. Chances are that the news is going to be known by certain people before it actually comes out, so the last-minute trades that occur before it happens can be attributed to those people getting in to take advantage of it. It works OK for me as a strategy most of the time...
