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.

Trading AFTER Work

Back during the late 80's and early 90's I did all my trading while also working full-time. This meant that I had to already have my trading plan in place and get my stop orders in before work.

Because back then I carried one of those hand-held realtime price quote machines, I could during breaks get to a phone if necessary to make adjustments or get out of trades. Bottom line, it was hard but it was doable.

These days, I trade full-time and anytime. With the Futures and Forex markets, you can trade all day and night.

But to address your question about 'daytrading', well, if you are fixed on doing that you may want to focus on the FOREX.

FOREX trading does allow for more activity around the clock. However, there will be slow periods and there will be fast periods, so sometimes you'll get a lot of activity and sometimes not so much.
