#FuturesTrades is free along with being a serious professional trading chat room and any trader can use the chat room to post their real-time trades, real-time price action analysis or market 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, price action analysis or market commentaries involving futures, exchange traded funds or forex currencies in comparison to other free chat rooms.

Quote:
#FuturesTrades chat room is not a signal calling chat room even though some members post real-time trades, real-time price action analysis or market news. Therefore, do not attempt to mimic the trades of other members. Also, if we suspect you've joined #FuturesTrades to try to use it as a signal calling chat room in an effort to piggy back (mimic) someone's trades, you will be banned...no exceptions.

#FuturesTrades is designed to be only 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 and this gives them a better understanding of 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 price action and markets to help keep the chat room diversified...posting trades or market commentaries about the price action on their monitors.

With that said, thanks for reading the trades, price action analysis 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. To gain access to #FuturesTrades chat room...please follow the instructions @ FTCHAT Support Forum * http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

[16:05:41] <@wrbtrader> Surprise we didn't see MORE volatility this week about such
[16:06:06] <@wrbtrader> Then again...after the past few months of RECORD amounts of money pulled out of the markets while the markets were going higher...
[16:06:27] <@wrbtrader> should have realize the end of the quarter would be calm
[16:08:28] <@wrbtrader> volatility contraction
[16:08:36] <@wrbtrader> tightning trail
[16:08:58] <@wrbtrader> if it's going to do a volatility spike into a WRB pt2...needs to do it now
[16:14:37] <+T4n_paper> Long TF @ 827.4 -> small size «« simulator »»

[16:15:04] <+T4n_paper> I just didnt want to end the week possitive
[16:15:51] <@wrbtrader> T4n...it was a confirmed Creeper Movement...
[16:16:01] <@wrbtrader> Why the Long position
[16:16:04] <@wrbtrader> ?
[16:16:28] <+T4n_paper> eod covering
[16:16:31] <@wrbtrader> I'm surprised it didn't spike down further...
[16:16:45] <@wrbtrader> reason why I was holding this for so long
[16:16:46] <+T4n_paper> joined the spike
[16:18:17] <@wrbtrader> Ok
[16:18:31] <@wrbtrader> Only a few trades for me today...
[16:18:45] <+T4n_paper> 11 for me
[16:18:48] <+T4n_paper> -30 eod
[16:19:14] <@wrbtrader> Took it easy today...lowered my overall position size, intentionally missed some trades today and just relaxed for the last trading day of the quarter.
[16:20:09] <+T4n_paper> if I ever become profitable in the first hour
[16:20:16] <+T4n_paper> I'll never trade anything again
[16:20:31] <+T4n_paper> I'll just take what works
[16:20:57] <+T4n_paper> anyways tough day as usual
[16:20:58] <+T4n_paper> adios
[16:21:07] <@wrbtrader> Yeah...that's a tough psychological battle
[16:21:38] <@wrbtrader> Some traders KNOW they are ONLY profitable in the a.m. trading session and NOT in the p.m. trading session
[16:21:50] <@wrbtrader> Yet, they continue trading into the p.m. trading session.
[16:22:38] <@wrbtrader> Takes a lot of discipline to call it quits "early" when you know others are still trading and there's many hours remaining in the trading day.
[16:23:11] <@wrbtrader> There was a trade journal at Elitetrader.com by someone that has a similar problem...
[16:23:33] <@wrbtrader> At the end of his journal...after he blew out his trading account...
[16:24:03] <@wrbtrader> His stats shown that he made like 80k in profits in the a.m. trading session
[16:24:23] <@wrbtrader> Yet he continue trading for the remainder of the trading day...usually closing the day at a LOSS
[16:25:10] <@wrbtrader> The overall stats show him losing 40k
[16:25:35] <@wrbtrader> That's an overall -120k if you think about it more :(
[16:26:26] <@wrbtrader> I understand if someone doesn't maintain statistical habits of their trading...
[16:26:53] <@wrbtrader> Yet, to know when losses tend to occur and then to continue trading in those losing time periods...
[16:27:00] <@wrbtrader> That's psychological.
[16:27:17] <@wrbtrader> Anyways, enough of the psych mumbo jumbo stuff...
[16:27:27] <@wrbtrader> Take care all and have a good weekend
[16:27:40] <@wrbtrader> Hoepfully Monday will be a big bang to the new quarter

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

#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.
