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.

I trade about 6 to 8 times in a six hour period.
The difference for me was to kill the trade as soon as it didn't look right, anywhere from 1 second to two minutes.
Once upon a time I would wait hours hoping for the trade to come good.
I now make a point of immediately forgetting the trade.
I do not work out the pips gained or lost until I've finished for the night.
"You never count your money
When you're sittin' at the table
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the dealin's done"

I don't want my mind infected.
