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.

Day 1

Today is my first day of combine. Im happy for the first day because its end up with positive even with small profit.

What i learn from day 1:
1. I have fear to lose capital so i trade with carefully but because of that i miss alot of opportunity and trade what i should not trade
2. My stop is to tight and move the stop lose to near. Some of my trade actually in profit but because of tight stop lose made the trade close in lose. My rules for stop lose is max 8 ticks
3. Dont trade when you cant read the market. Today market looks like trending up but its no strength to go up and end up in trading range day

My strength in day 1 are:
1. Patient
2. Disciplined

My weakness in day 1 are:
1. Fear to lose capital
2. move stop lose to tight

Will keep my strength and improve them, minimize the weakness and change it.

Looking forward for day 2. thanks and JLU
