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.

Key To Success

"Is to know when to trade"!

And by that I mean that you ought to have learned to know yourself that well, in order to know when it fits you to trade or not to trade.

Why is it that people do more rational things in real life then when they trade?
For i.e. would you ever go out for a run if you don't feel good?
Would you drink water if you weren't thirsty?
Would you cross a highway by foot?
Would you etc., etc...

All those things makes sense right? And they both feel and sound, and tastes, and looks like they're inappropriate.

So ask yourself, how come that common sense doesn't count in trading!

Remember the Holy Grail lies within you! Don't waste your time here on this planet by doing everything that lies in your power to make tomorrow look like yesterday!

Truely agree. Trading's biggest enemy is yourself. My understandings about trading are: 1. Get rich slowly 2. Flawless Execution 3. Correct Risk Management
These are my rules when I am trading
