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 said that he has mutiple accounts

I use Sierra Chart. I have multiple copies of Sierra Chart open. One for charting, and several others for execution DOMs linked to brokerages. At first, I thought it was stupid this way, having to launch and maintain multiple copies of a program. But it is really straight forward and simple enough, and works perfectly. Charts are provided by DTN, and then other copies of Sierra are tied to different brokers depending on what I am doing (equities, swing, futures, spot forex, etc).


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.

Thanks @ThatManFromTexas.

Can i group accounts with various data feed provider. For instance optimus/rithmic and mirus/zenfire?


You would need a multibroker license to group accounts from different brokers.

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
