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.

How many different data inputs do you need?

How many different data inputs do you consider necessary to provide you with your informational edge, and ability to extract profits from the market?
Which are your favorite? Do you need many? Or do you rather use 2 or 3 to keep it simple for example ?

Examples of inputs could be:
  • Price action/movement
  • Volume on the x-axis
  • Volume on the y-axis ( VP )
  • Market Profile
  • Breadth indicators
  • Looking at leading stocks of your index ( if you trade index future)
  • Looking at sectors ( index)
  • Time (velocity)
  • Orderflow
  • Looking at higher timeframes ( compared to ‘normal’ timeframe)
  • Looking at lower timeframes ( compared to ‘normal’ timeframe)
  • Correlations with other instruments
  • Trademanagement
  • Other..
