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.

Seriously, I have to find ways to stay awake.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

I'll bet if you take out $5000 a day out of the futures market you'll sleep like a puppy

That depends on what size your account is.

I had insomnia for 2 weeks, in those 2 weeks i performed very well.

I think it's the cocaine effect that is featured in the documentary "Inside Job"
