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.

We have been looking at property for a couple years but we will most likely live in our decided destination for a few years before buying. We will continue to look at property but the rent is cheap so there is no hurry
Good luck fellow adventurers

No concern about real estate appreciation while you are deciding?


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.

It is a concern and I will jump on the right deal if it comes along.

Making the right choice in property is more important to me than price. We are looking at land and plan to build.
So there is a lot of effort to putting it all together. And the process will take years.

I also own a house on Long Island that I plan to hold on to. If appreciation happens I will catch it there.

Out of all the English-speaking countries in Central/South America and Caribbean, Turks & Caicos (one country) is the one with the lowest crime rate and has fewer encounters with major hurricanes, that's why I it's my top choice in the region. Also, it's relatively easily to get a residence visa, here's a good link describing the requirement:
Immigration and Residency in Turks & Caicos Islands

Here's their official government page on immigration:
Turks and Caicos Islands Immigration Board at Turks and Caicos Islands Immigration Board

North Providenciales is the most expensive, upscale, and somewhat safer. Properties outside of the main island (Providenciales) is much cheaper, and the investment requirement (in order to obtain a residence visa) there is much lower than the one in main island. Like many Caribbean countries, T&C has lots of mosquitoes, so you need to be prepared for that.

You can learn more about T&C at:
Turks and Caicos Tourism, Hotels, Resorts, Restaurants, All Inclusive, Vacation Villa Rentals, Real Estate, Dining Guide, Weather, Excursions, SCUBA Diving, Shopping, Tours etc.

Tourism info:
Turks and Caicos Islands Travel Guide - VirtualTourist
Turks & Caicos - Travel Guide, Info & Bookings ? Lonely Planet

Property info:
Turks and Caicos Real Estate :: Turks and Caicos Property :: Providenciales

American Virgin Islands

try there also, and guess what?

you're existing residency visa(s) work there also!, just your state license is required (preferrably the newer certified licenses), which also allow travel throughout the Caribbean countries w/o passport.....
