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.

Statistical Definitions for Newbies

After reading some of the other threads that utilize statistics to help in their trading I decided to begin this thread to help others that may just be starting to look at this subject.

It can be quite intimidating going through some of the threads discussing statistics so I am hoping this thread will allow some of 'us' newbies in this subject feel more comfortable asking some of the 'dumb' questions we may have. I know that some of the more experienced in this forum will be more than helpful also.

I have attached a list of Statistics Definitions that were compiled from the Ninjatrader Version 6 Help Guild to get us started.

Regards, NMTrader

Good stuff NMtrader. But you posted in Journals, I moved it to General.


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.
