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 have been trading for over 20 years. I just started trading futures last Sept. and lost. I am too emotional trading manually. In Jan. I started working in the simulator on Auto Trading. Like you said great success in BT, but died in real-time. I has great success with range bars, but same results live. Non of my systems work without % Trailing.
Do I just give up? Any suggestions? Back to options? Thanks for the comment it is the first real help I have received. TS techs are great at the platform, but I did not find one who seemed to know Auto Trading.


Developing a trading system correctly is a lot different than what the retail platforms teach (the whole platform setup encourages you to pull up a chart, add some strategies, optimize it to death, and then trade the best case). That never works.

Check the Elite webinar section - there are a ton of good webinars on system building...
