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.

Hi Walaka.

Not sure what AF is, but I do use CQG.

Generally I like the product - however in the last few weeks I have been experiencing network delays, which is of course not good if you want to trade.

I have spoken several times with support. They told me yesterday that overnight they would apply a fix.

Today I am still experiencing delays - very frustrating.

Apart from this issue (I'm hoping it will be addressed soon) it seems to be a responsive platform.

Bear in mind there are several CQG products. If you want to use charts and you like affordable, then QTrader is the right choice. If you want extended functionality, you can get IC at a much higher price.

If you have another charting package and need only a trading interface with a DOM, then there's CQG Trader.

Hope it helps.

EDIT: I've just re-read your thread title, AF=Advantage Futures - No experience with them.

Please help keep FIO organized.

1) Search before creating duplicate threads for existing topics.

2) Create threads in the proper location.


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.
