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.

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.

I have no idea...

@Big Mike

but I will say if bitcoin does take off and develops into a truly viable currency It will do so without me. I think the governments of the world will prevent widespread use. For me personally I'd try to adapt but I like currency even if it is fiat currency, that I can fold and put in my pocket.

The idea is revolutionary. I'm just not sure older generations will adopt. I'm pretty sure gubments will reject a currency they cant control and manipulate as a tool of influence. DB

Heck yes, If my bank and credit companies support it, I'm all over it. I've been hoping for something like this for years.

I haven't looked into it, but it seems independent of bank and credit card companies, i.e. the swipe code changes electronically based which card you have selected. The only issue I see is that it also appears whomever you give it to will have access to all your cards.
