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.

Software Survey

Hey guys, just doing an assignment at college and had to collect some research.
You can sum up the questions asked below in a sentence or two if you like.

1) How old were you when you started your trading career (Not only specified to live trading, could be interest in trading/investing, researching on the topic)

2) How long after initially getting started with trading/investing did you acquire your first trading program/software?

3) What decision based choice did you use to select your first trading software; i.e. because It was free, It was recommended, Powerful trading capabilities etc, Went for the first reasonable software I stumbled across?

4) What was your first trading program?

5) Have you upgraded to another program since then?

5a) If so, how many times?

6) What was the most difficult part of selecting a program?

7) How impulsive were you when you decided to purchase your first trading program?

8) Would you have been willing to pay above $500 for your first trading program?

Appreciate the time taking to answer this survey,

Best Wish's
