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.

People trade for income for the same reasons people slave away at any other job for 40, 50 or 6,000 years...

They do not wish to be homeless, and have ready access to food for them and their family.

That is the primary purpose to earning money. To have shelter. The next is to have food. The next is to have access to etc A, B C etc ad nauseum.

But always, far and above, people earn money to not be homeless (have shelter) and have access to food. That is the primal, most important thing for survival.

Everything else after that is a "luxury". Nothing else matters beyond that. The rest is convenience, or "contrived necessity".
