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.

Hi zeeshanfkhan,
All thanks go to Big Mike. He's the one that had the foresight and tenacity to set this up. Quite an accomplishment.
When I became a member not long ago, he advised me to research the Psychology and Money Management part of the forum. It was a mind awakening experience. I suggest you spend some time learning from the smart people who posted information there.

Good luck
Ray

Hello


Hello and thanks to all by this magnificent site to learn and to share.

I am an apprentice of trader Spanish and soon time, and I will give the jump to the trading with real money.

Every day I feel like more insurance of my decisions and the positive results already accompany to me by quite stable way.

My English is even a little poor, and use automatic translators often.

So I request excuses for that reason.

Mike .....

In Spain you have a friend and your house of vacations for when you want.

A greeting.

Hi everyone!

Firstly, thanks Mike for setting this place up!

I've started trading journey 2 years ago in the forex markets (and lost money). I was gripped by excitement of it all, and I had started just before the big crash! I don't think it gets more exciting than that! Come to think of it, its kinda funny that I was excited about losing money..

Anyway, I've learnt to control my emotions now, and be strictly objective oriented. My job is just to execute the strategies. I've now moved on to e-minis, trading the ES, but I'm mainly still on demo, experimenting with various strategies.

I'm looking to find a really good formula sometime soon.

Hello madeharo,
Welcome to the group. Good luck in your research. Do look at the information in the Psychology and Money Management section, as it is very valuable information.

Sorry to read in the papers about some people dying during the running of the bulls. ( I think that is what it is called)

newbie trader

hi all,

about 10 years ago i worked at a chop shop in nyc. that got me interested in the markets, but not in selling stock to folks, but more trading my own account. since that time, i have finished up college and worked for the past five years saving enough money to live and trade for about a year before i need to get back to a paycheck. hopefully, i can make trading for a living a career. currently, i use lightspeed along with quote tracker and trade ideas. i focus on gappers and use a retracement method to buy or short them ala wallstwarrior and traderx. i also subscribe to a few different nightly trading services and one real time trading room.

Welcome stiks47,
Read your post and it seems like you have sources, ideas and some cautious moxie... If you haven't read some of my posts to other newcomers under the grandad58 handle, I would like to say a few words to you.

Now please don't be offended. After more than 40 years seeking my way, with a big win many years ago and lots of red ink since, I have come to learn what Big Mike is teaching to anyone who will listen; that you have to learn what you can from others that are willing to share, study the way the market you are interested in moves, and most important, develop your own method. The fact is, what someone else does may not work for you.

I'm not trying to discourage you, but rather to make you think and maybe even write down your specific plan so you know personally what you want to do. I consider myself a newbie because I have not done what I want to do, trade for a living. But I am working on a plan, and will operate it on simulation.

Big Mike recommended that I learn the good information in the Psychology and Money Management section of this website, and I would suggest you research that topic.

Good luck to you, let us hear how you are doing.
Sorry, I don't mean to preach...
Ray

Hi Everybody!

I've been trading for quite a few years and found this Forum via a post by Big Mike on the Ninja Support Forum.

This looks like a great place -- mostly laid-back and helpful people.

My style is now a daytrader (scalper). I don't swing trade much anymore since the smallest thing will often spike prices.

I'll be happy to help anyone if I can and will look forward to getting new perspectives and new ideas from others too.
