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.

Moved to Traders Hideout.


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 don't really trade etf's - I invest in them. If I do trade an etf I trade triple leveraged etf's and I swing trade them, I do not scalp them. I also look at the holdings of the etf's before I buy them. I like ERX, FAS, FAZ, etc. I tend to stay away from powershares etf's.

Any reason(s) why you stay away from Powershares ETFs?

Futures Edge on FIO

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

I have found powershares to never make good money for a hold or a trade, they are the best etf's out there. Every single powershare etf has had a negative return since inception, i could be off on one or two but i prefer the 3x leverage for trading and easy energy/commodity for swing trading.
