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.

The complete newbie

Hi ! I'm a complete noob, never ever traded. I'm 28 from France, C++ soft eng for a US based financial company.

I'm trading on a demo Alpari (uk) account (1K€), a real micro alpari uk account (200€) as well as ten demo to try different EA on diff brokers.

What this journal will contain : everything related to my trading. Manual + auto results and experimentations. May also contain valuable links related to my trading learning.

Goal : learn manual trading on REAL account with small quantities because obviously playing on demo is less stressful..
Also, I'm writing some MT4 EAs

Today ; EURUSD Demo
Morning chart analysis:
