#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.

#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.

Quote:
Traders that use #FuturesTrades are required to discuss anything related to trading (e.g. price action analysis, market news or real-time trades) at least once per day they use our chat room. Yet, you're not required to post trades but if you do post trades...they must be clear (not ambiguous) entry price/exit price and position size. Those that consistently post ambiguous trades will be KICKED (removed) from the chat room.

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 log in to #FuturesTrades chat room...please follow the instructions @ FTCHAT Support Forum * http://www.thestrategylab.com/ftchat/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

[09:42:00] <+Fleneer> little positive mom on the open. but with the string of down days a little bounce not unreasonable.
[09:44:30] <@wrbtrader> FYI - Bank holiday and Queens Day in Canada...many key market participants missing from the futures markets.
[09:46:38] <+canaandog> it shows in lack of action
[09:47:07] <+Tigerman> yep in holiday volatility is low
[09:47:44] <+Tigerman> in contrast FB is moving nice on sell
[09:47:53] <+Tigerman> facebook
[09:48:08] <+Tigerman> but seems is not possible short selling
[09:50:35] <+Tigerman> also not paricular news scheduled today
[09:51:33] <@wrbtrader> Yep...a good day to NOT be aggressive in looking for trade opportunities
[09:51:49] <+Tigerman> strongly agreed
[09:53:42] <+Tigerman> woh big down move
[09:57:27] <+Fleneer> couple long scalps in this retrace off the opening pop ended stopped at net BE
[09:58:46] <+Fleneer> grabbed a long at market support from the morning at the bell. in 77.50 out 2479.50 trade took 18 seconds to net 72 bucks. Amortize that! LOL

[10:03:09] <+Tigerman> Exited Remainder IWM Long @ 74.90 --> + 0.22
[10:04:21] <+Fleneer> I find chasing market a bad idea. then again sometimes a fill on a retrace to my asking price turns out a bad idea LOL

[10:07:48] <+Tigerman> price are well set for an up continuation move
[10:10:51] <+Tigerman> Long IWM @ 75.08

[10:20:56] <+Fleneer> My 79.50 exit on my long looking pretty sad here with market over 2500
[10:21:16] <+Fleneer> but I will never complain about booking a profit.
[10:23:26] <+Fleneer> I just want to make a living at this. Big profits will come in due time. This morning net 88 bucks for less than an hour "work" not bad in the scheme of day to day living. One must maintain perspective.

This chat room is used by traders as their own personal "journal" (diary) of market thoughts, price action analysis or real-time trades to provide a wealth of information they can't get from their broker statements alone.

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

#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 @ 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.
