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.

Sierra will be doing a more advanced webinar today @ 4:30PM Eastern, check it out:


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.

I have a question for those using multiple services. Mike, it seems you have the setup I am using now, TT with DTN (from what I read here.) When a contract rolls over, do you have to manually make all the required field changes? Seems somewhat tedious since there is the background DTN symbol, and both symbols in the a single chart (symbol & alt symbol.) Then all the rest of the different time frame charts that one may have. Just curious if anyone has discovered a quicker way. It seems that if TT had a front month contract like DTN we wouldn't have to alter anything. Maybe TT could do that for us. Seems like things would be a little easier from the maintenance end if that was done. Thanks
