#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. Also, if you're looking for real-time education in the chat room involving price action only trading (profitably trading without indicators)...you need to contact us to schedule price action only trading real-time discussions. We'll then have one on one (private) real-time price action only trading discussions with you while you're using #FuturesTrades real-time chat room to prevent distractions in the chat room with other members that are using different trading methods in comparison to us. However, you must first download and learn our free study guide at a different forum @ TSL Support Forum * http://www.thestrategylab.com/tsl/forum/viewforum.php?f=5

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

[11:12:18] <@X> #FuturesTrades Info -> Chat room for traders of Emini Futures (EMD, TF, ES, NQ, YM), EuroFX Futures (6E, EC), Eurex/Euronext Futures (DAX, ESTX50, FTSE100, CAC40), Treasury Futures (ZF, ZN, ZB), NYMEX Futures (CL, NG, HO, QM), Exchange Traded Funds (DIA, GLD, IWM, OIH, XLE, QQQQ, SPY) and Forex Currencies
[11:19:29] <@wrbtrader> FYI - I'm going to mention a summary of recent conversations I had with a "few" former #FuturesTrades members that no longer visit this room after being "long time members".
[11:20:10] <@wrbtrader> They all joined this room because they "thought" it was an education room even though they specifically had read in the "registration process"...
[11:20:17] <@wrbtrader> This is NOT and education room
[11:20:58] <@wrbtrader> Others joined because the "thought" this was a "signal calling" chat room where someone will tell them when to buy or when to sell.
[11:21:12] <@wrbtrader> This is NOT a signal calling chat room.
[11:21:59] <@wrbtrader> This room is specifically designed for YOU to post a few trades and price action commentary like a JOURNAL as a supplement to your broker statements...
[11:22:54] <@wrbtrader> Broker statements don't show your thoughts...that's what this room is for and the ONLY reason why I maintain archives @ viewforum.php?f=20
[11:23:54] <@wrbtrader> Not one of them "asked for help" from anyone in here that I'm aware of with any aspects of their trading.
[11:24:16] <@wrbtrader> Simply, nobody is going to knock on your door and ask what's going on :)
[11:24:29] <@wrbtrader> Thus, if you got trading problems (we all do)...
[11:24:47] <@wrbtrader> This is not the time to be silent especially when you got "real money" on the line.
[11:25:59] <@wrbtrader> Some members in here are currently active members at discussion forums...sharing trading tips.
[11:26:50] <@wrbtrader> It's a shame...really...that some of the folks I know at other forums have stated nobody from #futurestrades has ever asked them for help...
[11:26:53] <@wrbtrader> Nobody.
[11:27:24] <@wrbtrader> My point is this...if you leave without once raising your hand to ask for help...
[11:28:05] <@wrbtrader> Don't send me an email with complaints...seriously.
[11:28:27] <@wrbtrader> My job in here is to document my own trades and keep the peace.
[11:28:31] <@wrbtrader> That's it.
[11:29:17] <@wrbtrader> Therefore, if you're looking to mimick someones trades in here...
[11:29:34] <@wrbtrader> That's an impossible task for you because this room is not setup to be a signal calling room
[11:30:55] <@wrbtrader> Therefore, if you're looking for education...I share a few free resources, some in here have blogs, others in here are posting actively at forums (Elitetrader, Traderslaboratory, ForexFactory, Babypips, T2W)...
[11:31:10] <@wrbtrader> Just ask but DO NOT complain if you've never asked.
[11:33:47] <Hoff> deal :)
[11:33:58] <T_182> No complaints here but just a question. I find it incredibily difficult to post "live" trades as I really try to focus on the trades so when i post it is like a minute or two later than reality, is that an issue (and it would be if someone was following my trades, which are pretty crap right now anyways).
[11:34:27] <+T_182> that was a question without the "?" on the end, sorry
[11:35:00] <@wrbtrader> T_182...no problem...nobody in here (I hope not) are competing in here with each other.
[11:35:23] <@wrbtrader> In my opinion...posting live trades is an extremely difficult task.
[11:35:49] <@wrbtrader> It took me about a year or so to get use to it.
[11:35:49] <+T_182> I was assuming everyone was posting with a lag
[11:36:04] <@wrbtrader> It's impossible to post "without a lag".
[11:36:07] <@wrbtrader> Impossible
[11:36:39] <+T_182> Which goes back to your point that other should not see his as a signal calling room
[11:36:59] <@wrbtrader> The time it takes for you to make a trade, ensure you got confirmation of that trade, ensure your stops are in, ensure you got the right position size...then post the trade...
[11:37:16] <+T_182> nice typing.... "Others should not see this as a signal calling room."
[11:37:37] <@wrbtrader> A season chat room poster may be able to post a trade by 15 seconds after the fact
[11:38:01] <+T_182> Don't forget the "freak-out" time factor, LOL
[11:38:13] <@wrbtrader> I don't know about you guys...I'm a fanatic...
[11:38:52] <@wrbtrader> I need to "see" my confirmation, make sure I got the right size and then see where I've made my stop adjustment...
[11:38:59] <@wrbtrader> As soon as I've done that...
[11:39:02] <@wrbtrader> I post my trade.
[11:45:17] <Rider11> same that T-182 happen with me besides 99% of my trades are from 1 to 3 p.m. central time and at this time anyone is here
[11:45:30] <+Rider11> I trader DAX
[12:03:40] <@wrbtrader> If anyone want to ask me questions about a specific trade I took...
[12:04:21] <@wrbtrader> I'll reply with "general info" because I don't have the time nor do I want to go into "indepth" details and post charts.
[12:04:43] <@wrbtrader> Too time consuming and a distraction from other more important trading stuff
[12:13:20] <+T_182> Rider11 - Dax runs 1- 3pm est?
[12:16:16] <+Rider11> start at 1 central time
[12:16:55] <+Rider11> but it is working for 14 straight hours
[12:17:22] <+T_182> understand, thx
[12:17:48] <+Rider11> but for me best time to trade this market is within 2 or 3 first hours
[12:19:48] <@wrbtrader> Rider11...I feel the same way.
[12:20:14] <@wrbtrader> No matter what the market is...I prefer to only trade it's first few hours after it opens.

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

#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.

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.
