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.

Day Trading For Income

I have been trading full-time for 2.5 years and also have ~20 years trading experience. I trade to generate daily income utilizing very short term trades. My game changers were trading with a plan, active stop management, trading psychology awareness, and keeping a journal to manage what I'm doing right or wrong so I may take corrective action.

I normally trade anywhere from 100 - 250 trades a day so my journal entries will be based on trading sequences. For example, if I catch a trend to the upside I will include my areas of entries with charts or videos. At the end of the sequence I will summarize my winners and losers. I will detail my reasons for entries and exits.

I look forward everyone's comments and feedback,

100 to 250 times a day? This should be interesting!
