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.

Congratulations on your journal!

In the spirit of our March Trading Journal contest, I am asking everyone to spend a few minutes and share their journaling experience.

A) What are the top five benefits you have seen as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

B) What are the top five problem areas you have identified as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

C) Were you initially reluctant to start this trading journal? If yes, why?

D) How do you feel, overall, about your journaling experience?

E) Would you recommend to others that they should also start a trading journal?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I appreciate your posts, and I hope you have benefited from your journal. I also know that others will benefit as well, just by reading about your own experiences.

Enjoy your weekend,

Ive made myself more aware or cognitive to being more carefull on taking trades and not hitting the reset button because its more tranparant. Gives sim a perspective of real, simply due to transparity.

And by posting my trades for all to see it provides a record for my reviewing at any time, and it cronicles the process of developement as we become traders. I imagine theirs more advantages that Im not considering at the moment.

Disadvantage I would say isnt much, I like the opportunity to develope in a forum like this. Personally myself when I see almost 300 people viewed my post I expect more thanks out of those numbers. Makes me more gratefull for thanks that I do recieve.

And Ive figured out my pics using jpeg so they can be viewed. I thought my 1st journal was lost or removed, didnt realize it goes furthur back & I wasnt finding it so I started another one. I want to scrap this one cus u cant pull up the charts anyway.

Thanks Mike
