How many of you trade with a trading buddy? I define a trading buddy as someone who you are talking with (not typing) real time about your instrument and trade setups. In other words, LIVE real-time.

I like to get my trading buddy on screen in skype before I place my first trade of the day. We discuss any overnight developments. He usually knows this stuff better than me. He also tells me what times news will hit.

Then we start looking for trades. We share our charts with each other as we have different triggers, but still mark support/resistance areas in similar way.

I find my trading buddy to be invaluable. He helps me follow my rules, and I help him follow his. Primarily for me this means not overtrading. Not to mention, things become a lot clearer when you have a discussion about it with a fellow trader. He can tell you when you're over analyzing something or if he thinks you are flat wrong, and it's important to get that feedback so you can make sure you are following your own rules, double check your entries, not in chop, etc. It is for all these reasons I am listing this thread in the Psychology forum, because I think a trading buddy is there to help you in that regard.

I have a lot of trading friends on my Skype list and I know a lot of you type to each other during trading, but I think there is no substitute for live voice chat, especially sharing a chart so you can show your cursor and talk about a move, price, etc.

How many of you have trading buddies?

I think it would also be cool if you guys wanted to use this thread to find new trading buddies. Just mention what instrument you trade and your skype name and we can try to get some new buddies made

This is an excellent suggestion and one that works really well. All traders should try and commit to this as their trading results should improve as they now have a buddy to confirm trades with and somebody who is there to "whack them over the head" when they jump in and take a trade "just because they thought it might be a good idea", which ends up a loser.

I know of a group that promote a similar concept. They set up accountability teams (AT). There are normally 3 to 4 traders in each team and they do a similar thing, however they go one step further and make each other accountable for their trades and actions. At the end of the day or week, they send each other their trades and explain why the entered and exited at those particular levels. The idea to to ensure that all traders understand their rules and manage their entries, exits and emotions.

The only difference between these traders and the ones on this site, is that all those traders trade exactly the same system, on the same instrument (YM) and this makes it a lot easier for all members of the team.

In order for this to work well on futures.io (formerly BMT), I think that the traders in the AT teams and team buddies should ideally all trade the same instrument. The ideal scenario would also be to trade the same set ups and same system, however this will not be possible, unless all members agree on a system from the forum, such as Holy Grail or All You Need as examples (both of which are possibly feasible)

I still think that all traders will learn a lot more by making them accountable and trading in a team / buddy environment. It will be like a mini trading room for each group. If this becomes successful, then it could lead to a futures.io (formerly BMT) style trading room in the future!

I believe that this is certainly worth a try.

Only one answer, nobody have trading buddies ?
I have some, and it's very important for me.
We are all trading the same instrument, not exactly the same setups, but there are quite close, and in most cases we all have the same vision of the market. If we don't have the same view, no problem, we talk about it, to see why we this this or that.
Other point, their is always someone to tell you " hey, remember, beige book in an 30 minutes !!!".
Am I the only one to have forgotten an important news ?
Another good thing, when you are in a very bad situation, your bodies can give you advise: "cut your position, now !" or "don't worry, I don't think it's going to go lower, but close all after this level". These kind of advises are priceless.
I'm not going to say that without my buddies I can't be profitable, but it's easier with them !!! An external point of view is very very useful when you're stressed and in bad position, and you can have it with this.
One of these guys is a real master, and after few years of daily audio chat, I still impressed by the guy. No fear, no stress. He makes bad trades, sometimes, and when I write bad trades, I mean very very bad trades, a lot of money involved.
And the guy still very very cool, very very impressive.
So, when a guy like this says: "hmm, you should cut your losses now, ...", or "hmm, you should not sell now, keep cool...", this is really great.

Hey, great now ?

But, their is a but...
You have to know your buddies. I mean, really knowing them, how they trade, why do these guys are trading, what are their limits, who do they manage stress, what are the systems they use, are they Short in most cases, or Long, or they don't have any bias, etc, etc.
If you're not very close with them, well it's unavailable, you won't trust them, and this will be not very useful.

So yes , having trading buddies is a very very good thing, if you know and trust your buddies (and this not happens in few days).

Let's try this.

Anyone who wants to trade ES or CL, please skype me @ ctrl-brk and tell me your forum username. I will create a large skype conference group, text-only no voice, and lets see if we can get a make shift "room" going.

My purpose in this is simply to help people, I think that a group effort of traders here on the forum can be beneficial to many.

So, if you don't have skype, now is the time to get it. Skype me @ ctrl-brk, give me your username, and specifically let me know if you are trading ES or CL and want to join the buddy group.

I think this is a good idea but I'm not sure when I can and can not attend since I'm not a full timer. I will pm my skype name and see how it goes.

I'm in a live chat on another site and the text chat is very active during market hours and during the evening sessions. The big issue is many of the traders are simulators and are 'risk free' which is a whole different ball game.

What about 6E or other futures currencies?
I trade that more than anything.
(I like the adrenaline rush I guess)

David,

Yes for sure, 6E as well. I don't trade it, but if there are a few that do I will create a group for it.

Wow, that is rather invasive and is not at all interesting to me. I would rather see smaller more personal interactions, so you can communicate with each other about your style, and not just blindly follow a group. If you want to just follow a group, I think you can go to Edward Jones or Vanguard, etc.

Mike, just a suggestion here. I tried getting involved with a group that used Mumble , an Open Source Voice Chat. The software was acceptable. But issues popped up when people were trading the same instrument using totally different methodology. It became confusing and stagnating. Nothing is worse than second guessing your decision to enter a trade because there is an opposing view. This idea would probably be helpful if the entire group were looking at the same charts, same indicators, trading the same methods. Chances of missing a setup with multiple eyes will be reduced this way.

Experience has shown me that any variation in an individuals trading style from the groups will cause many problems. That is the reason a left that group.

But give it a go. Idea has merits.

Thanks Mike for the initiative , I like to trade the first 2 hours and go on with my daily life , the skype group is defintely a good idea , today was the first day , I cannot say anything yet , but what I want to see is maybe discussing a high probability entry as the market unfolds , I personally would not mind doing it
Cheers !

The idea of our skype group is to hold each other accountable, and for less experienced traders to see more advanced trading methods. It is not a room to blindly follow trading calls, as I've said in the room - the person making the call can benefit because of the accountability, so people will and do call trades, but that no one else should take those trades simply because someone else did.

So yes, we'll see how it unfolds and if people can truly understand that. If it winds up people are just blindly following trading calls, then it will have completely missed the point.

Different styles are to be encouraged I think in a large group. From this group the individual traders can find another Trading Buddy they like in chat and maybe pair off with them 1-on-1 if they have a more similar market strategy.

Yes. Put the Swing Traders together and the Scalpers together.

I am in the Scalper's camp on the CL.

My day job is as an administrator in higher education so while I could not take advantage of the text messaging, I could look in on the conversations once in awhile and record the messages - great for learning! And I usually keep Skype open at work just in case family members want to contact me.

Anyone else out there from Michigan?

I have a buddy who trades on and off with me ( he has a day job about 3 days a week).
We don't talk live but we do chat, share charts and observations.

Things that have helped

1. showing people your entry and exit real time - no room for bull. It is very surprising how 'exposed' you feel.
2. having someone who is maybe not trading your setup give you an assessment of YOUR assesment ( if that makes sense to people). This person has no emotional content with the trade and occasionally throws in the odd comment that can be extemely enlightening.
3.showing losers. Yes oddly they do happy with monotonous regularity and realising that we ALL do that and it's nothing to be ashamed of - just something to try and learn from.

Things that didn't help

1. live talk - you often feel the need to say stuff just to break the long silences!!
I know that goes against your view BM but it's just what I found.

Big Mike,
Thank you for doing this: already I see that it is and will be very helpful to me. It kept me from overtrading last week (and not following my trading plan), things I usually do when "no one is watching." LOL. And, it's very educational to listen (though I might not understand at this point) what others are talking about.

Also, another thank you! to Sharky for letting me know about futures.io (formerly BMT): This is just what I needed for my next step. I appreciate it very much.

I use my journal to expose myself I would recommend everybody keep a detailed journal on futures.io (formerly BMT). Get "SnagIt" from TechSmith software if you want to easily annotate charts and post them on the forum like I do. Still, I'll hang out in the ES group during the opening hour.

Are there any forex traders out there? I scalp the forex market during the European session opening and when the US markets open. I live in California. I use to trade with a buddy but he basically retired, living off his forex profits. Several sets of eyes helps when it comes to trading.

I am part of a group of traders in France and we have a private forum with a private chat room on which we can write, share files and talk to each other.... This last point was the new one.

We started this experience a few months ago and I can tell you that it was for most of us very difficult to get used to this new environment. You have to keep in mind that it may (it does) change the way you trade at the beginning.

Some of us switch off the volume when they trade.

Hey guys,

Im an assiduate reader of the forum, just opened an acount to starting go live at the ES, and would love to be part of a trader-buddies group!

Im starting out verrry slowly, since I have a small account and my plan is to grow it to allow me to do both daytrade and swing trade.

I currently only looking at the ES but I intend to try out CL (i guess i suffer from BigMike's impatience syndrome as well...), but only later on, when i'm confident enough, and my account leaves more room for error.

I have my own entry and exits discretionary strategy, would like to share it and hear some toughts, as well as try to implementate other traders ideas and advices into it.

Im not trading for a living. Im eager to learn as much as i can from other traders ( BigMike's forum is a goldmine for me) so i loved the trading buddies idea.

Im up for it, where do i sign?

Did we ever make a 6E/ Euro/USD room? I want to see if there is interest. There are too many 6E traders lurking around that need to corrupt me with their amazing skillz. Maybe if I am in a room I won't skype as much

Thanks for the thread Mike, and the wonderful opportunities it opens up for all of us.

I was trading part time, and had some family and personal issues that have disrupted my trading regime starting about 8 weeks ago. I used the hiatus to return to my previous employment as a form of 'adversion therapy' and to gain more perspective on what I needed to do for myself. I am actively working daily to have myself and my tools ready to trade full time by end of March, if not sooner.

Currently I have once again started sim trades at market open, though I am leaning more to 830 EST start to about 1130 and then a nap and to work 4pm - 1230 am. A bit gruelling if there is sleep devrivation (ie: stress from work).

A trading buddy for the NQ would be great: I would prefer voice on skype (I have no problem with long silences - I play 'trading mind' affirmations inserted into a self made/designed nature sounds recording on a subliminal track) as I type slow and prefer focus on screens. Ideally once I start trading again I will be monitoring my own automated strategies on NQ to make sure I dont get caught in a software blowout of my account.

Strategy is leaning toward scalping in different time frames, and 'going with the flow' when a trending setup is available.

A reminder -- from earlier in the thread -- you need to Skype me at ctrl-brk if you want to join, tell me your username and what room(s) you want 6E, CL, ES.

Let's try this.

Anyone who wants to trade ES or CL, please skype me @ ctrl-brk and tell me your forum username. I will create a large skype conference group, text-only no voice, and lets see if we can get a make shift "room" going.

My purpose in this is simply to help people, I think that a group effort of traders here on the forum can be beneficial to many.

So, if you don't have skype, now is the time to get it. Skype me @ ctrl-brk, give me your username, and specifically let me know if you are trading ES or CL and want to join the buddy group.

Mike

I sent you my Skype details. Do you also trade the Asian or European session in CL?

Thanks.

Hello Rassi

Even to join the room with every one talking about CL would not be a bad idea cos I eventually wish to move over to CL.

How does one go about joining this room ?? Any possibility ??

I see that this post is somewhat old but is there anyone interested? I trade the ES utilizing market profile, gomcd and squawkbox. My basic trade setup is momentum scalping with the short term trend, This has a few variations. I'm open to the communication method but prefer skype. If anyone is interested please let me know.

I have a particular ritual for this guys... you need to skype me at ctrl-brk and tell me your forum username, and then I will add you to the room. There is only one room now for quite sometime, all instruments are welcome although mainly CL is discussed.

Hi -

I am trying to gain access to the Skype chat room and I do not find any such room listed in the conversations tab in Skype.

Do I need to search and add it to the list? What step(s) might I be missing?

Thanks,

Dave,

On the main Skype menu, you should have two tabs. One is "Contacts" and one is "Conversations". Do you?

On the Conversations tab, there should be an entry "futures.io (formerly BMT) CL Group". It's the room. If you don't have it let me know and I will kick you out of the room, and then re-invite you back in.

Not showing up so far. My Skype name, as it appears on the top of the Skype screen shows dave.steckler

Maybe if you try using that name it will work. Not sure what else the problem can be.

Guys,

I've added some new Tabs to the left side of the chatbox on the home page. These tabs are for "rooms" to discuss instruments, like an ES room, a CL room, and a EUR/USD room (so far).

My plan is to phase out the skype chat and use this instead.

I like the idea of Skype, the problem is I can't seem to find a buddy that is on the same page with me. It's not so much the methodology, its the psycology. I recently participated in a group Skype room and there was one guy that just couldn't control his emmotions. Granted, I lose it sometimes, but when I do I KNOW its time to just take a break. This guy would get flat out angry and blame the market.

I would like to have a Skype buddy that has their act together (psycologocally) and can remain calm no matter what. Its a great idea. I trade the 6E, TF, and the NQ, if anyone is interested, gimme' a shout.

Are there any forex traders out there? I scalp the forex market during the European session opening and when the US markets open. I live in California. I use to trade with a buddy but he basically retired, living off his forex profits. Several sets of eyes helps when it comes to trading.

Hi, and yes, I trade forex. I am not a newbie, and mentor several younger traders. Skype is invaluable for this, as is SnagIt.

This is my first post, and first reading of this Forum. Nice to see so many other focused traders. The book and article references I've followed up on have been most helpful.

Best regards,
Merlin

Hey Big Mike!

I have sent you my request via Skype but I am not sure whether I am allowed in futures.io (formerly BMT) 6E group. I don't see any group in my Skype window. Am I in? BTW, my Skype ID is wangwangusa. Please shed light!

I don't see you in my skype, and I have no pending requests. Resend the request to "ctrl-brk" and be certain to include your forum username in the initial contact request.

Hey Mike,

I did send you Instant Message (IM) again. I see your contact logo (a guy with sunglass on T-shirt showing 12) on my contact list. But I still don't see any group on my contact list window. Should I do something else? As mentioned, my skype ID is WANGWANGUSA. Thanks!

The Skype room is no longer active. I encourage you guys to use the different groups on the futures.io (formerly BMT) home page in the chatbox to find a 'room' for any real-time chat needs. You can find these groups on the left of the chatbox.

I am closing this thread.

Mike
