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.

Per the Washington Post:

Makes me mad. Not so much that they used the loophole, but that they lobbied to create the loophole and were successful.


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.

The whole thing makes me mad! -G.E., Citigroup, et al... Especially as it has come out that MANY predicted the banking collapse.. Byron Dorgan among others.. to say nothing of common sense... fox guarding the hen house phenomenon. The other G.E. scandal that makes me even madder is their reluctance to take care of their PCB dumping activities into the Hudson River... which may be continuing to a small degree even today.

I like to get my raw unfiltered news commentary at 05:00 PM EDT Fox News Channel.

If you have never watched, he pretty much despises all career politicians all their P.S.

Freedom and Patriotism. Morality and personal values advocate.

He's funny as heck too.
