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.

I've not updated this journal for a very long period of time. (And in fact this is not a journal but a bit of everything: system, personal thoughts etc...). But this does not mean that I have stop working. It is in fact quit the opposite. But the biggest work had been on myself.

I've work everyday during the last 5 month in order to design a trading system and I've succeeded in designing something that works beyond my expectations but until today I've traded it poorly. By poorly I mean making small gains everyday but missing all the potential all the time.

I've realized that even if I used (I use the past) to consider myself as experienced in trading in fact I was not. Most of my carrier I've been a market maker, taking small calculated risk for a small period of time with the money of my employer... That is has nothing to do with taking directional trades with my own limited financial means.

Of course the system I have designed is also a short term and very conservative one (doing the opposite based on my psychology would have been stupid) but on top of that I've put my ex MM psychology and habits which as lead to very depressing results compare to the raw potential of the system.

After many and many hours (days) of speeches with my best shrink (myself) I have finally be able to get rid of those habits

At the end I trade now only CL and I will start soon a new and real trading journal in the commodities section of this forum. I expect to start it by the beginning of March.
