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.

-- Big Mike

Heard about this site in passing and it seems like a good group of people. Been working at this business trying to turn the corner for what seems like an embarrassing long time
Most more "recent" focus has been on my psychology in trading, which falls under my broader look into spirituality.

I hope others are doing well in their endeavor

Silver Dragon View Post
Good afternoon everyone.

Wanted to introduce myself and give a little background.

I have been trading off and on for about 12 years. Traded a little bit of everything over the years. Forex, stocks, options, futures. Forex is my current poison of choice. I am fortunate enough to have two things in my life I love to do; my current job and trading. Over the past couple of years I have started to get serious about my trading and want to eventually make it a career. I love the markets, I love to learn. I hope to be able to contribute to this forum in a meaningful way.

SD

Welcome Silver dragon, you have come to a great place, with so many great people willing to help. Enjoy your stay.

I realized when looking back at this thread, that my initial post never showed up.

I stumbled over the introduction to FX trading at babypips.com some six months ago, and I've been demo trading since then. No set date to go live, first I want to feel sure about what system to trade.
At the moment I'm using Multicharts DT and also testing out some of my own indicators for Multicharts.


Looking forward to learning from people here, and hopefully somewhere along the line, being able to help someone in return.

Futures Edge on FIO
Hi all,
Found this site while i was checking out another trading room
Been trading on and off for 12 years now but with no success
Have paid for many systems and room memberships on the way
I have allways felt that since it was a good idea to use my lawyer for my legal stuff and my accountant for
my tax stuff why not use a trading room for my trading
By the way both my lawyer and accountant have paid me to remodel their kitchens over the years because thats what i do
Although this is my first post, i have read much on this site since i joined a week ago
I can see that most feel i should rely on myself for my trading but i have no problem paying a pro for their services
Of course i have yet to find such a service
I read somewhere that those who know are not talking.....ect.
But why wouldn't someone who could do it not offer it for a price
I don't know but if someone had lets say 1000 people that paid even 100 per month or 200 or 300
do the math.... not bad
Well these are my thoughts and why

I can really sense the desire in so many people (me included) to find a way to profitability. Amazing how long this journal can take.

spot here.
I am in from the south US but now am in the Philippines.
I trade the NQ premarket. I start at 3Am and trade until about 7 or 8
Most all the time there are one or two big breakout moves everyday
I try to get 4 to 8 and sometimes 12 ticks a day.
I try to get my 8 ticks and am done for the day.
most of the time i am done by 5 am
That would be 6 pm here.
I belive in trading more contracts and doing less trading.

I would like to hear from traders doing the same with the premarket NQ.
Best regards
Spot
