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.

2011 Resolution

I've come to the realization that Health is Wealth. So I decided to work on my Health for 2011. What does Health mean to me...It means more than taking care of the physical body such as eating right and exercising. It also means to be healthy in my emotions and in my thoughts. Being aware when I'm in a negative state, or when I begin to think badly about a person or a situation, or when negative thoughts enter my mind. I believe by working on these things I will become a better person which will reflect on me being a better trader.

"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." --- "Therefore, I Believe it and I will see it. And every day and in every way, I am healthier, wealthier, and wiser."

Well my friends, 2010 is nearly upon us! It made me wonder, what New Year's Resolution(s) will you make for 2010 that are related to your trading?

I have more than one:

- Read more about: Psychology, Personal Triumph, Biographies on Traders
- Read less about: Charts, Systems/Strategies, Quantitative Trading
- Eat healthier - yes, it does relate because when you feel better you trade better
- Seek out new remedies for my sleeping disorder - most certainly affects my trading
- Put more in savings than I did last year
- Help more people via (formerly BMT) than I did last year

I look forward to reading your Resolution(s)! I hope everyone shares, and then a year from now we can check in and see how everyone did.

Most of all, I hope each of you cherish your time this Holiday Season with your friends and family, and make the most of the New Year!



Since one of your 2011 resolution concerned food, beeing Italian my advice is of course Mediterranean Diet
You can start by having a look at The Many Benefits of a Mediterranean Diet
