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 am planning to get an ipad for the occasional trades (options & stock) and monitoring my positions/account while at work/commuting. Does anyone know how much data it will need? The phone company reps. donít have a clue and just want me to subscribe to the most expensive unlimited plan.

Position plots actually don't use very much data. I have an ATT hot spot for access on the go when there is no WIFI
and for times when power or internet may fail in my office. If used sparingly only for travel or emergencies I
believe 1 G of data covers my needs. But your needs may vary.

I always worry about trading on mobile connection, if it goes out you get stuck up the river without a paddle. otherwise I do like to monitor my positions on the tablet.
