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

Hi,
I am new to trading but believe to have what it is needed to become a fulltime daytrader. I like the idea of being the only responsible for my faith. I hope my programming background will help and am spending a lot of time on learning and making stats.
Thanks to Big Mike for this forum.

Introduction

New here and being a computer klutz, I have a lot of issues with how the thread works. Anyway, I started day trading futures about 8 years ago. Originally using NexGen software. I was never very successful and blew out a few accounts.

Have been stumbling since then. Currently I use Ninja and EOT software. I can do real well on sim, but not so great trading live.

I have explored many different methods, including Gann and Murrey, but find them both to be unintelligible. Currently I am looking at Daniel Code software and Felton.

Would be interested in hearing from others who have tried these

Hi Everyone

Thank you Mike for the kind welcome to your site.

I am about a year into trading part time, with a fairly big hole in my pocket. I am still managing the emotional side to trading but I can see the light at the end of this tunnel. My aim is to generate an income from trading so that I can retire and spend more time with my family.

Being part of your community, I hope will allow me to see other perspectives to trading.

Hope you all had a great Easter holidays!!

Regards
5thImmortal

Greetings to the community,

Hi everyone,

I have been an unsuccessful trader, bouncing around on ideas and making poor, emotional choices, and loosing money. I hope to learn how to trade successfully before my nerves are shot and my monies gone! My only exposure has been with Family members who used buy-n-hold investing decades ago. I'm 53, and work a full time job as a toolmaker/designer. I feel swing trading may be a good choice for me...something I can perhaps check on a few times a day. Hope to hear your stories and share experiences...good and bad!
best regards,
Ken
