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.

Some good trading advice from poker champion Amarillo Slim

"The point is that in gambling you need to put the odds in your favor. The result of one particular game doesn't mean a damn thing, and that's why one of my mantras has always been 'Decisions, not results.' Do the right thing enough times and the results will take care of themselves in the long run."

-- Amarillo Slim Preston (from "Amarillo Slim In A World of Fat People")
