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.

Zero connection. I was trying to show that some people are just simply inspirational without friends called "cut" and "paste".

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

That was the Obama administration talking and they are retreating from that dumb idea. Obama is weak on national defense. No talking point here. I am former military and I can't believe the stuff that is disclosed that cause harm to our missions. There are secrets that must remain secret.

Extension of Patriot Act, more drone attacks, biggest defense budget, continuation of most of Bush's policy - where exactly is Obama being weak?

And Robert Gates was first appointed by Bush, so again why is this only Obama's problem?

And the secrets released were about corporate corruption, torture of foreign nationals and govt. doublespeak - why should all these remain secret?

Futures Edge on FIO
Wikileaks To Target Bank Of America In Next Release

Oh crap, now that this guy has targeted .... a BANK! .... he won't be long on this Earth. We all guessed it would be BofA, looks like we wont have to wait much longer to get the dirt.


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 know that bank pretty well( im not going to get into what i mean by that), and im not at all surprised. The only thing that ever prevents me from saying that i hope that bank should have been allowed to fail is the fact that i still have friends that work there.

let's not forget a few things. governments were corrupt since the first government was put in place.

there's no doubt in my mind that BoA did something awful. but guess what. nothing new either. banks are and were corrupt since day 1 as well. one could say because money stinks. one good example is worldbank after world war I.

(not going in details, because this is a very delicate subject)

It is significantly more difficult if not nearly impossible for banks (or any other enterprise) to be corrupt without the backing of corrupt government though. Without the the laws that give specific perks and protections to banks, these banks would be at the mercy of their customers. Free market forces tried very hard in 2008 to bring balance and order, but unfortunately, government was there to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with bailout money stolen from the people.

The more I hear, the more I am beginning to love Wilkileaks. Now if the people, once they've learned the truth, would just do their duty and hold these people accountable...

Let's not forget the very root of the problem... it isn't government or business corruption. Both of these are benign in and of themselves.While government has been responsible for the greatest atrocities in history; government is not evil. Communism isn't evil. Neither is Capitalism, business, religion or any other fictitious entity. These names are merely labels that we slap on collective groups of men, who often hide behind those labels to disguise their bad behaviour.
