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.

Congrats

Mike,

I really appreciate the effort you have made here. I find your site rich with info and very well maintained.
For my part, after developing software for traders for many years, finally decided to turn pro a while ago, and having gone through all the heartaches and ups and downs, finally figured out what it takes to be a good trader:
Patience and Detachment.

Hope I can contribute to the site when the time comes.

Kenny

Hi All

Hi all, just joined today and looking forward to chatting to you all and learning some new stuff, Mike forum looks great and full of info so will be searching the threads over the coming days.
I have been trading 8 years now, trade ES mainly and had a hard time at first but things are a lot clearer now, I took many market Profile courses and studied Order Flow and that has made a big differance on my results, but still a long way to go.

anyway just wanted to say Hi.

Stacey

Hi Everyone

My name is Adam, i have actaully been trading since 1994, I feel very old. I started my career at Goldman's in 1993, I then went to UBS. Since 2005 i have been trading my own account, i live out in the middle of nowhere which is great when it comes to concentrating on the markets.

I mainly trade Options (It was OTC Forex options i did at GS and UBS), but i also trade alot of CME Currency Futures for hedging.

I tend to give all my hard eraned cash back to the oil market although I have managed to avoid that for the last couple of years.

I avoid stocks and indices trading i would rather sweep the streets.

I joined futures.io (formerly BMT) to try and fill a cap in the market, there is a huge gulf in the market from ex-bank traders to new guys starting up. futures.io (formerly BMT) seems to have the most market worthy folks I have seen on here. Personally i dont want to hear about guys moaning how when they traded the pit this move would of lasted 70 pips , or newbie's asking which way round EURUSD is quoted. futures.io (formerly BMT) fits the bill and im very happy reading threads from some quality market traders.

Adam

You have to enjoy it.

Hello,
I have been dabbling in trading for about 4years with small gains and then blowing out.
I am currently looking at trading futures in a small way and right now mainly trade stocks intra-day.
My hope is to gain some insights on what fits me and developing a workable strategy, and develop the ability to follow my plans - I have a habit of running stops way too close, by not planning trades adequately.
Like the look of the forum so far - came across it on a random search.

Welcome to all the new members! I look forward to reading your posts.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
