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.

-- Big Mike

Depending on your trading platform, an Apple Macbook Pro with a SSD drive (or a Macbook Air) is also a good buy.

If you plan on using a Windows-based trading platform, there's always VMWare Fusion, but some might be against that idea due to latency issues (if any).

I would vote for the macbook pro.

There is simply no better laptop made on this planet. It has a unibody (1 block of aluminium)

Apple - MacBook Pro - Meet the MacBook Pro laptop family.

You can boot in BOOTCAMP and you are running windows faster on a macbook than you would on a windows laptop.

That was just funny : MacBook Pro Is the Fastest Windows Vista Notebook
