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.

ESmini: Reading and understanding market strcuture

Hi all. Not sure but hoping someone can help. New to ES-MINI trading. Looking to learn Price Action without indicators. Can anyone tell me any good material on how to read and understand the es-mini market structure?

future tape reader.

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Here are a couple of links that helped me understand it better.

Jigsaw Trading - Day Trading tools, day trading methods,day trading community
No BS Day Trading

THis forum is loaded with great threads about the subject as well.
Not long ago i became an elite member at Big Mike's and have found the extra info available to me to be in depth and invaluable. Lots of good webinars and threads on the subject. Peter Davies of Jigsaw and John Grady of NO BS both have webinars in the archives of this forum along with other reputable order flow, tape reading, price action traders. You picked the best forum for info that I have been able to find. THe $100 I spent for the lifetime membership here has some of the best money I have invested in my trading journey. If your not ready for that though, there are still some good threads to be found here. Just search all of the key words I have mentioned. Good Luck!

Futures Edge on FIO
No better teacher than a plain 5min chart.

Combined with a technique to "clear your mind."
Only have the 5 min chart open. Spend the 1st week just watching. Anytime you start to develop a bias then clear your mind and just watch. At the end of the day go back over the chart(s) and note/hilight any observations (support, resistance, price rejections, nuances, etc.)

During the second week just continue to watch but allow some bias as it unfolds. Make notes. Be honest. Learn from the times you're right and the times you're wrong.

Continue until you can see it before it happens.

Just my thoughts...
