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.

Trading Journey

Rollie here and this is my trading journal. I have some goals that I would like to accomplish by the end of December 2015. Being to this world there is a lot for me to learn and I am willing to learn and take critimis that will increase my knowledge. Eventually, I hope that my knowledge base increases as well so I can help others in their journey.

Anyways, here are my goals:

1) Learn how to place orders using charttrader in NT
2) Learn how to create a chart, learn about superdom, data series, types of market to trade, different instruments,
3) Create ATM strategy in NT
4) Learn about sell limit/stop and buy limit/stop
5) Experiment with indicators in NT
6) Learn about Technical trading.
7) Explore reversal patterns
8)Build up risk capital
9) Develop trading style and psychology
10) Test strategy using simulation
11) Start trading live

Some of these may sound vague but then again I'm still pretty new at this so any suggestions are greatly appreciated

So far these are my goals to complete by the end of December 2015.

Well, here I go..

I'll give you some simple advice, try trading without indicators, I think they confuse novice traders more than they help. Pay attention to larger timeframes, don't get all caught up trying to figure out minute charts, from what I understand, institutions don't care about minute charts, and neither should you. Try to understand how volume works if you are trading futures. Start with 1 product that has acceptable volatility and stick with it, don't jump around. Test and verify anything you read, don't just take anything someone tells you at face value, there is a lot of junk out there, if you can't prove it to yourself, keep questioning it until you can. Get exposure to live trading, paper trading has its limits, you need to learn how to lose money and all the feelings that are associated with that. That's all I've got for now, good luck.
