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.

John Clayburg Universal System

This is a post to inform users that they should AVOID John Clayburg and his strategies. Simply put, Clayburg uses the inherent back testing weakness in Tradestation to generate beautiful hypothetical equity curves that do NOT hold up during real-time trading. In fact, I would suggest that ALL system traders stay away from auto strategies that use intra bar order generation (IOG), since this logic CANNOT be properly back tested or optimized currently with either TS or Multicharts - despite what the platform developers may advertise. I have not seen the back testing flaw really properly addressed, so I wanted to sound the warning...

The following user says Thank You to tallblackboots for this post:

Please do not create new threads when existing threads on the same subject exist.

You do not have the reputation necessary to post in the Vendor Review section of the forum, so you will have to wait until you do.


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.
