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.

USO, UNG, UGA etc. Heads up

In the midst of the "financial crisis" my wife and I planned a winter road trip to Canada (Banff), and being knowledgeable in the futures markets, I decided to hedge our insanely cheap gas prices (under $2/gal) and throw a couple hundred bucks (our anticipated cost of gas) in the UGA. This is an ETF designed to track the cost of gas.

My timing was good, and I still hold the investment........except, I have recently moved my taxes to a CPA instead of an online provider and found out that these investments are a LP (limited partnership) which add about $100 to the cost of doing the return.

Basically just wanted to throw this out to the community to consider the additional costs of an investment. My 400% return isn't so attractive anymore.
