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.

One other technique is not to enter on the first touch of the price, but to let it come back and then enter, this is called a test. Usually the price will not hit the same high or low. Watch the market you are in and notice how it behaves. Practice, practice and understand their will be both profits and losses. Overtime, as you develop this skill, you will filter out low probability trades, and have more winning trades.

Looking for price rejection is key (retesting an area price didn't like, and looking for it to continue to not like it,) especially when trying to trade counter-trend.

Plus, and this is a HUGE plus, letting price test the area again gives you a clear and defined "out".
