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.

There are a few Chick Pics at the beginning.

Very interesting audio though, give it a listen.

Thanks RJay. I feel like this guy a lot, with all the people that send me PM's over and over asking questions that are covered on the forum. Makes you think that if they can't be bothered to read and learn on their own for days, weeks, months, then they are doomed to fail at trading.

I look forward to seeing what else he comes up with. We agree on several things it would seem.


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.

Being able to navigate a forum and extract the knowledge you present, doesn't necessarily correlate with whether they will make money or not. Everyone processes information differently, but I do appreciate your point.
