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.

Best Traders Magazines (printed publications)

What do you guys think are the best magazines for active traders? Primarily those that are in traditional printed media format.


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.

I use several of them geared toward traders. However, the term active trader is misused as far as what all these magazines contain. The closest to an active trader magazine was the one published by Wasendorf's PFG (partially at my expense) and now gone for the next 50 years :

TASC - A subscriber since 1984 (I have a full bookcase of past to current issues), the grand daddy of technical analysis. It is for almost everyone and indicator and system fans, but made me a technical analysis junkie.

Active Trader - A newer one for average aspiring and beginning retail traders - articles are targeted to learning traders. It is OK, but I don't read it anymore.

Futures Magazine - The most serious magazine, both beginners and pros can pick a nugget here and there, good market information, and also frequently prints good technical analysis articles. The nice thing about FM is that you can get it online for free through your sponsoring broker.

For general and other types of trading, investing, etc, Bill O'Neil's IBD, Financial Times, and Baron's will feed any market beast with a big appetite..

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

As a birthday present to myself, I've been planning on getting a subscription to the Journal of Trading.
