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.

Posting on a thread for newbies

I want to add to the School of Trade forum. Not sure how to do it. I get a message that I first need to post 10 entries, or something, somewhere.

I would like an update on any new consensus for SOT. My introductory experience is mixed.
1. Their price is way too high, no matter what they deliver
2. Where's the Beef. No live trading room until you pay even though they allude to a live room availability during the 7 day trial.
3. I am impressed with the nightly newsletter. JJ nailed the S&P reaction today from the lows yesterday.
4. I requested a real experience in a real live trade room and received a reply that basically said pay up first.

Anyway, I'll copy and past this entry into the right place, or leave it as is.

Like it says and you already read, the correct way to do it was to wait until you have ten posts. As apposed to what you did, which was create a duplicate thread for an existing subject and post in the wrong forum, instead of following the simple rules

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
