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.

MSFT has a great service that allows you to 'register' your devices and download the image used for that device.

That's pretty cool.


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.

Make Use Of Surface Pro 4 review

If you’re looking for a flexible portable hybrid computer, one that is capable of replacing your notebook and iPad or Android tablet, the Surface Pro 4 Core M3 device is a perfectly adequate replacement. Sure, there may be some sacrifice here (such as switching software ecosystems) but on the whole, the Surface notebook/tablet hybrid is a surprisingly flexible piece of kit. Our verdict of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (Core M): 7/10

Will I really notice much difference between the i5 and i7 processors? Setup would be 1 monitor, possibly 2 with Ninja and TS. I tend to focus on a few instruments so not a crazy number of open charts at one time. I'm assuming 16GB RAM is the way to go, just would love to save a few coins if I'm not going to see much difference between the processors.

Thanks in advance.
