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.

But returning non-Kindle tablet purchases via Amazon would mean you would have to pay shipping charges.


Hmmm. I don't think that is true if you are an Amazon Prime member.
I've never paid to return anything to them with a Prime account.

I have owned ipads and android tablets of varying sizes. My goto is a galaxy tab which is 7 inch like the Fire. 7 inch perfect for entertainment and reading which is what the kindle fire is designed to do. One thing you will find after having a tablet is all the things you thought you would do you won't. Primarily you will find yourself reading and watching movies maybe playing a few games. The fire is perfect for those activities.

If you use a lot of Amazon services the Fire is a no brainer. I find 7 inch form factor much better than larger. The price at $199 is fantastic. Can't go wrong.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

I'm a Prime customer for a long time, and have been a member since 2001. When you go through the refund process, if you select "I don't want it", they charge shipping and say "since this isn't our fault...." If you select anything like "Doesn't work, defective" type of answer, then they will pay shipping.

If you have different experience let me know

BTW, Amazon support has always been stellar. Over the 10 years I've ordered a ton of stuff (just looked recently, 35k spent according to their tool), and some shipments have been lost or damaged, or wrong, etc etc. They've always gone above and beyond, overnighted replacement stuff, never given me any kind of hard time with anything.


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.
