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.

Thanks for all your responses.

It is really annoying not to be able to post links until I get 5 posts. But if you search "Scalping Futures Live with Don Kaufman" on youtube, the first result is a video of real scalps (guy is the cofounder of TOS). He is trading YM, but looks like he gets at least one fill on limit order at the last traded price.

Guess this doesn't happen everytime and depends on market conditions? But I understand that YM is not as liquid as ES. I should try a few real trades. Is everyone using TD ameritrade? What kind of commissions are you getting? Sim has about $7 round turn, which seems high.
