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 Journal 5-16

Back after a break and much study and personal asssessment:
See below and thank you for being the catalyst for my trading transformation.

Trading Journal 5-16
Been a while (about 3 weeks) since I have written in my trading journal - have been working on documenting and testing my system - got assistance from a trading system advisor to help me and continue to get that assistance
have greatly improved the system I trade and added a 3 bar candle pattern from Jardine's book on Fib trading - the market structure high and low. This market structure based pattern has greatly improved my entries and also provided a way to target exits.
Today was the first day I have traded the new system and I find myself relaxed and feeling confident in a way I have never experienced:
I know the patterns to watch for and their probable outcomes.
I know what to do - how to enter, set a profit target and set and manage a stop loss - when I see the patterns I trade
I know that the patterns I am watching for will set up throughout the trading day giving me ample trading opportunities
I know that I have documented trading routines I follow every day to increase my competency and strengthen my skills as a trader
I know I am making trading a successful business for myself
