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.

-- Big Mike

"Read" is the best possible answer.

Browse for topics that interest you, or that are unfamiliar to you, or that make you curious.

Or just read as many posts as you can before reaching saturation. However, suspend judgment on anything that does not make sense to you, or if you cannot find that it works for you. Check things against your experience, or other opinions. Be willing to learn stuff. Expand.

After awhile, ask questions where you are unclear about something.

At some point, decide on whether you are getting enough value to want to get an Elite membership, which includes posts that are not available otherwise.


You are welcome here, by the way.
