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.

Getting Started with MC

I will try to post here my experience in trying to get started with MC and automated trading in general.

So far I have just downloaded MC7, I am trying to find a few years of minute of FX data which can be imported inside MC7 and the only thing that was free I could find was the data from ForexTester.

For the background, I am working in an IB and just wanted to try this as an experiment. Wanted to create a blog, but saw that this forums allows people to create trading journal which is great because other people can question and challenge my ideas.

Next steps:
  1. Setup MC7 with data and a basic strategy like a Donchian system
  2. Setup a system based on trend following
  3. Setup a system based on patterns
  4. Optimize money management
  5. Forward testing (3/6 months)
  6. Go live hopefully !
Does anybody know if the data from ForexTester is any good ?
