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.

Marking apost in a thread as "answer to this thread"

Hi All

I know you can mark a post in a thread as "the answer to the thread".

I believe you can do this if you are the thread starter, I just can't figure out how it's donw.

Any clues?

I think that's only available for questions asked via the front page 'Ask any question' facility, but don't quote me...

Travel Well

Correct, only "Question" threads generated from the "Ask A Question" box on the main page have this option, and it is only shown to the thread starter.

90% of the thread starters never select any post as an "Answer", despite a huge blue banner being drawn in every single post to get their attention. I end up having to do it, or Sam after a few days.


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.
