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.

(a) My win percentage is over 50%
(d) My winning trades are smaller than my losing trades (dollar-to-dollar)
(e) I trade to a specific daily goal based in dollars and then stop

After analyzing 2010's trades I concluded that I should improve my money management rules.
More specifically, I should close out my losers faster.

My win rate is over 50%
My winners are always larger than my losers in both dollars and ticks.
I trade full time but it does not represent the majority of my income although I suspect that will change 1st quarter of 2011.

All the letters are on the other page so I can't see them to list them like other guys have... anyway

My win rate is more than 50%

The mode of winners vs mode of losers hovers around 50%, sometimes above sometimes below; The mean loser is bigger than the mean winner though; I do my conkers on a trade every now and again.

I trade full time and it's my primary source of income, even when I don't make any LOL

I don't have a fixed target for winning but I have daily / weekly loss limits etc...

My win percentage is below 50%.
My winning trades are larger than my losing trades (dollar to dollar).
I have no daily goal or loss limits on systems that trade 24/7.
I trade full time and it represents all of my income.
