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.

Google Nexus 7

Anand review: AnandTech - The Google Nexus 7 Review

I already have an Asus Transformer Prime, with keyboard dock, or I would get one of these guys. But I am glad to finally see some serious competition to iPad and someone finally bringing down prices.

This tablet is built by Asus, and the quality is there. They sacrificed on a few features, but 90% of people won't miss them - and it is worth it to get the price point down, IMO.

And the "Google Now" voice thing is cool, we finally get a better-than-Siri version for Android:


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 almost bought an iPAD a couple of months ago but then I started to think... why do I need this? I'm always at home where I have 1 laptop and 2 desktops. If I need to go out I take I Ericsson android phone that allow me to have access to the internet anywhere.
Why do I need a tablet? Then I remember it would be useful for when I'm in bed, to read news, emails, it's a lot easier then using my phone, but then again, i'm in bed 7 hours a day and it's only for sleeping, nothing else... well... moving on...

Then I thought, it would be cool to have one during those day I'm on vacation or visiting relatives, I would have access to my emails and stuff, but then again, vacation I'll take when I'm dead and relatives I tend to stay away as far as possible.

Also, when I thought it would be nice to read news and books I immediately remember that I can't stand being too much time reading text on a white background, that's why I bought a Kindle in the first place.

So in the end I gave up, I have no use for a tablet, but I confess, from time to time that urge comes and these smaller ones, 7" are really tempting.
Unfortunately the Nexus 7 are not yet available in most European countries. We'll need to wait a bit more.

Apparently Apple will present the iPad mini in September. That will be very interesting to see.

If I become half a percent smarter each year, I'll be a genius by the time I die

I have the Google Nexus 7 and it is great. For the record I have owned ipads, xoom, and two different samsung 7 inchers. For the price this can't be beat. The quality is good the screen text is crisp with no visible pixelation ( I hate any pixelation) Not retina but close enough. It is very fast with google nailing it with the Jellybean OS.

As a side note for me 7 inch is perfect form factor. The 10 inch tablets tend to be to heavy. Tablets tend to be a consumption device and 7 inch is perfect for consumption weather reading or video.

and did I say price is really right...

"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."
