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.

I've been trading First Quantum Minerals (FM) for a few months now. Materials have been great gainers in my opinion; this one is fairly volatile too. I don't have much to say (I'm only a beginner) but I'll point out what I've been seeing with this company. Perhaps someone out there might be interested in my trading method and chime in with their expertise.

My indicators are: EMA (7,27); MACD (7,27,7); RSI 14, Parabolic SAR and Fast Stochastics for kicks (false signals galore, it's like a random seismograph). One of my rules is I trade from 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM. I consider myself a trend trader.

Anyway, FM has been slowly gaining on a weekly basis. I keep noticing periods of resistance once a week, then boom, massive increase in price. I don't like keeping overnight positions too much, but when I see these resistance periods, I buy and keep overnight, awakening to a nice profit. The increases are always apparent at the end of the week (Wednesday and onwards).

Attached is a chart I followed yesterday and today. Notice Wednesday's resistance period (afternoon and onwards) where the price barely moved. I placed my position at the end of yesterday and sold at 123.50 today.
