#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

[10:06:39] <+maple> @office so have a diff IP address
[10:06:52] <@wrbtrader> Ahhh...
[10:06:56] <@wrbtrader> So that's the problem
[10:07:04] * maple is now known as wave1
[10:07:04] <@wrbtrader> Usually you log in here via your office
[10:07:17] <@wrbtrader> That means your IP address problem was via your HOME ???
[10:07:27] <+wave1> yes when most of the days I do
[10:07:45] <+wave1> but when @home some AM ..same issue crop up.
[10:08:31] <+wave1> did talk to the provider ..so far not successful but will need to work with them coming days ..
[10:09:26] <+wave1> but it is the IP address which is causing this problem..
[10:09:49] <@wrbtrader> They change it once without notifying you...
[10:09:56] <@wrbtrader> They can change it again :)
[10:10:19] <+wave1> they claim that they did not do it ..
[10:10:48] <+wave1> but I need to pursue with them problem is it is not easy to deal with a tech guy many times .
[10:11:38] <+wave1> mostly you get half tech type of person ..who wants to halp me by charging $75/hr since they claim that it is my router that is the issue
[10:12:41] <+wave1> NQ trying to go L
[10:12:55] <@wrbtrader> You should document your IP address so that when it changes again...you can show them PROOF they are doing such regardless if its accidentally or intentionally via moving clients around on different servers.
[10:13:28] <@wrbtrader> My provider changes my IP address several times every year...
[10:13:50] <+wave1> yes there is a site which display the IP address ..soething like chicken.com
[10:13:58] <@wrbtrader> Their explanation is that its intentional for server/bandwidth reasons
[10:14:03] <+wave1> i forget but have the link @home
[10:15:18] <+wave1> will check with them and see what they say about their reason for this change

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

#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:

Image ICE Emini TF Futures (formerly CME ER2)

Image CBOT mini-sized Dow Futures YM

Image Eurex Index Derivatives (futures) DAX and DJ Euro Stoxx50

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.
