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.

Newbie says Hi

Hi all,
I've blown up a couple of accounts in forex but still interested in it. Stumbled upon a futures trading system that I am currently using with success. Came here to learn more about futures so I don't have to just blindly follow someone elses signals. Looking forward to learning alot and hopefully helping out if I can.

Foolishly continuing

Hi All

I am of the same ilk as a lot of people. Blown up accounts. Picked myself up and brushed myself down. Mind you, the bruising from my wife took a long time to disappear

I left trading for a while as I didn't want to go back to Forex on MT4. I'm back on NinjaTrader now but interested in strategies for automated trading. I can't program but want to learn. I would like to obtain some automated strategies and play around with them to learn code.

I did a little 'C' a LONG time ago and can't remember much, but willing to have another look. I want to treat it as my hobby.

Paraje

old guy

Hi,
I have been trading for about 25 years and have bought just about everything out there. I am a member of the CME and CBOT and trade fututres, options and some FX. I started my career as a scientist at Bell Labs. I am working on automated trading with various platforms. Hopefully I am not to old to learn some new tricks.
Thanks,
Russell

Intro


I like Big Mike have lost enough money early in my trading career to make most men weep. I lost a ton of my net worth making trades on the index futures. Learned I was not a very good seat-of my-pants gambler and terrible at making quick decisions. My strength is that I'm very analytical and being a very methodical, very mechanical and very boring trader. I learned there are a lot of trading strategies out there, none are the holy grail, but most will work over the long run when used in conjunction with sound money management practices. For me, it is just "laying a few bricks" every day. And after realizing this and developing the self-discipline, I finally righted the ship. Currently, I'm in the process of transitioning to the MultiCharts platform and look forward to using its capabilities to robotically implement my algorithms and taking the human element entirely out of my trading. Look forward to participating in the forum.
