#FuturesTrades is free along with being a serious professional trading chat room and any trader can use the chat room to post their trades or commentaries involving futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies. Further, although our chat room is smaller than the other popular chat rooms...we are the most active chat room in posting trades or market commentaries involving futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies in comparison to other free chat rooms.

#FuturesTrades is designed to be a trade journal for documentation purposes only so that members can have a real time stamp archive of trades and market commentaries of each trading day so that they can better understand their broker statements from one trade to the next trade when they review their performance numbers on any given trading day. In addition, we welcome all traders with their own methods or different perspective of the markets to help keep the chat room diversified...posting trades or market commentaries about the price action on their monitors.

Quote:
I post my trades via the user name wrbtrader in the free chat room #FuturesTrades because its a public performance record of my trades and price action commentaries along with helping me to be disciplined while trading. Yet, the reasons behind each trade is only discussed with fee-base clients using a different private chat room called #VolatilityTradingTSL that's part of the Volatility Trading Report (VTR).

With that said, thanks for reading the trades or market commentaries that's below and we highly recommend you make reading of the logs a part of your trading routine because you will sometimes find useful trade information not discussed anywhere else online nor in any books if you're not interested in scheduling one on one (private) real-time price action only trading education discussions. To gain access to #FuturesTrades chat room...please follow the instructions @ FTCHAT Support Forum * http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

[14:13:35] <@wrbtrader> I don't have any methods that trade price ladder.
[14:14:22] <@wrbtrader> I've never put too much faith into DOM strategies

[15:24:45] <@wrbtrader> 3 largest internet providers around my area were 'threaten' with lawsuits for their "bottle neck" practice on the download bandwidth.
[15:26:26] <@wrbtrader> For example, I'm paying for 60 mbps speed but can only get that late at night.
[15:27:33] <@wrbtrader> They've been "intentionally" slowing it down to 20 mbps during non-peak hours via the assumption those that paid for it aren't at home or doesn't need it :(
[15:28:01] <@wrbtrader> Regulatory agency got involved and told them to stop...
[15:28:17] <@wrbtrader> ISPs been doing that for a few years now...
[15:28:52] <@wrbtrader> Their "bottle neck" practive is suppose to stop this month.
[15:29:01] <@wrbtrader> practive = practice
[15:30:56] <@wrbtrader> They also started doing that because more people are downloading "larger data" (e.g. movies, music, live TV et cetera)...forcing them to updating their servers load compacity...costing them millions.
[15:32:39] <@wrbtrader> Same problem with Mobile 3G, 4G and 5G networks...
[15:32:47] <@wrbtrader> Most ISP bottle neck those too :(
[15:33:11] <@wrbtrader> Whatever you pay for...you're only getting about 1/2 at best.

-------------------------

#FuturesTrades is free and is a serious professional trading chat room in which any trader can use the chat room to post their trades or commentaries involving futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies. Simply, you don't need to be a client of TheStrategyLab.com to use the chat room nor do you need to be a price action only trader (no indicators) because some members use indicators while others do not.

Therefore, we welcome all traders with their own trade signal methods, different perspective of the markets and different experience levels. To gain access to #FuturesTrades...please follow the instructions at the below link.

http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

The purpose of #FuturesTrades is that it's designed to be a trade journal for documentation purposes only so that members can have a time stamp archive of trades and market commentaries of each trading day so that they can better understand their broker statements from one trade to the next trade when they review their performance numbers on any given trading day.

Further, members are not obligated to educate nor help other members but members are encourage to ask questions about any trades or market commentaries that's posted by others because sometimes the answers contains useful trading tips.

In addition, our primary job in the free chat room is to moderate the room (keep the peace) because with so many members using different trade signal methods along with different opinions about the market...debates or arguments can easily flare up without moderating. In addition, our presence in the chat room is to ensure it's a spam free chat room during trading although these archived chat logs may contain advertisements for guest visitors.

Commonly discussed trading instruments from futures, exchange traded funds and forex currencies:

Also, to prevent the usual mix-up about our different chat rooms, most of our fee-base clients do not use chat rooms just like most retail traders do not use chat rooms. Yet, the few clients that do use chat rooms, our fee-base clients are discussing market analysis or price action only trade signals via concepts from our strategies in the private chat rooms called #VolatilityTradingTSL or #SwingTradingTSL and they're not allowed to do such in #FuturesTrades.

Reminder, our Terms of Use (TOU) Policy is a must read to prevent any misunderstandings along with revealing that #FuturesTrades is a serious professional trading chat room and we expect members to act professional. Also, these logs may have been edited (rarely) to remove any messages that a member has complained to me via private message that they consider a particular commentary to be inappropriate, offending or too far in the off topic area that's a distraction when the commentary was posted.

Note: All logs regardless to their location at TheStrategyLab.com website are eastern standard time.
