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.

I think this comes from experience with the market you trade. You get to know its mood and sentiments over time. You know when news or the timing of things just puts people on the sideline and the chop ensues.

Using an indicator to tell you from a historical perspective what is happening now seems a bit silly when you really think about it. You have to be in tune with the market. This will come but it's a matter of time. I would get a good charting program and open a 100$ CFD account to keep it real, and then just put the time in until you inherently understand the market you trade. A windsurfer doesn't need an oceanographer to come out and do some measurements to see if the water he's in is choppy, it becomes obvious through experience.
