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 would get the Samsung. I have not had problems with mine. Excellent SSD.

On my next visit to the States I need to bring back some new SSD's for one of my workstations. Stumbled across this website when looking at reviews to decide if I should get the 850 pro or not.

UserBenchmark: Crucial M550 256GB vs Samsung 850 Pro

I like the site.

Of course. I never really considered anything else seriously

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.

Can't believe how much improvement one can get by just replacing a hard drive on the same computer with a $105 Samsung SSD 840 256GB. Running NT on this computer is now at least 10 times faster, much quieter, and 30 seconds or more loading charts now loads in less than 2 seconds.

Best yet, with the Samsung CD kit and a SATA USB cable, installation can not be any simpler for dummies. This $105 expense is heck of lot less than a monthly supply of stomach acid remedies.

Futures Edge on FIO

Traderwolf View Post

I have been running same system with AMD almost all day for about 3 years with 2 vid cards and 4 monitors for trading.

Could you please post what video cards you use and what type of hard-drives ( any SSD ? ). Have you tried it with NT8 yet? I'm trying to figure out a good spec for a new machine running NT8.
