Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Thanks Mike for the excellent Forum!

I am from Hong Kong and used to work in Electronics industry for many years. Yet, I decided to have my career change and start full-time trading in 2009. I mainly day trade stock warrant which is one of the most popular speculative tool. Basically, scapling is my strategy and I trade from 20 to 60 times a day. Now, I start to trade US e-mini and hope I could learn more.

Hi everybody,

I'm new here and new to day trading.

I've 1 year of experience as swing trader and daily study of 5 to 60 minutes ES charts.
Now i'm looking at day trading as a complementary activity for the future.
I'm planning to spend few hours a day (or night...) for a month or so to study and experiment with NT day trading indicators. If everything proceed well I hope to be ready for some real life day trade by the end of the year.

I'm glad to join the comunity and hope to be able to give some contribution ASAP.

Hey all - Long time off and on reader, first time poster. I figure I'll take the plunge and join officially. I'm a Multicharts user and while the forum seems Ninjatrader heavy, I figure there is still good information I can learn even using a different platform.

Hello everyone,

I'm not going to detail my past trading history except to say that persevrence through more than 10 years and 10's of thousands of dollars has brought me to my present situation, which is semi-profitability on the verge of consistent profitability.(let's call me semi-consistent)

This is one of, if not the, best trading forums, in terms of users and content that I've come across.
So, thanks Big Mike and all who contibute.

I'm very grateful to be here and look forward to the future.
