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.

The essence of libertarianism

"The battle of morality was fought between those who claimed that your life belongs to God and those who claimed that it belongs to your neighbors--between those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of ghosts in heaven and those who preached that the good is self-sacrifice for the sake of incompetents on earth. And no one came to say that your life belongs to you and the good is to live it." -Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

I never read that book but I completely agree! I'm an advocate of evolution and I believe that each and every person is his or her own being and they must fight to survive and reproduce. That said life only has meaning if you give it meaning. Live life the way YOU want to live it doing the things YOU want to do the way YOU want to do them.

One of my favorite quotes:

"Play the starring role in your life. Not a supporting role in somebody else's."
-I don't know who said this.
