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.

Tablet Traders

I haven't gotten into tablets too much, but have slowly been moving towards it. For daytrading I haven't tried yet, but longer term trading is ok.

Right now I use android running ThinkorSwim......good for daily and weekly trading, but not many charting options.

Anyone use ninja or xtrader on a tablet? I'm thinking of making the switch, but figured I'd start a thread for those who trade exclusively or majority on a tablet.

Just use a remote desktop app, there are several, and you can see whatever is on your screens on your tablet. but using the touch screen to actively place orders this way is not good. Better to use actual web interface designed for this, or app from your broker. Some platforms offer this, some do not.

NT8 will have it. Mirus Futures has their Mirus Trader which does it.


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.
