With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.

lol, you've been here since almost the very start. Nice to see you as Elite now, thanks for the support!

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.

STOP -- STOP -- STOP all LIVE account trading immediately

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!

1) Firstly, STOP -- STOP -- STOP all LIVE account trading immediately.


2) Do DEMO account trading exclusively UNTIL you can generate 200% profit per month for 3 months in a row via minimum 100+ transactions. (Eliminating random luck)

The logic is -- if one can generate 200% profit consistently per month for 3 months, then one can surely able to generate 50% profit per month consistently.



3) Suggestion: Why not join some nice & solid trading contest such as those that comes with a real prize money using a demo account??

In order not to promote anything, please PM me if you want to know how.


4) Do < read & re-read & re-READ > again the <Trading in the Zone> book by Mark Douglas

as suggested by Jeff Harbin.



5) Create a custom made all encompassing Trading Plan that suit you to a tee.



6) That's all you need.
At this moment, I am fighting the same battle as you are.
It is extremely hard to fight the devil urge of self-destruction as in <I know already and I am just lazy>.

Hello everybody


Joining this forum for approximately one week I forgot to introduce my self very briefly. I am originally from germany and working as an independent trader since 2008. Trading the derivaties markets on an intraday basis is a very demanding challenge in an ever changing environment, thus sometimes I think that I am still standing at the beginning more or less. I started up with FX spot and CFD´s on chash index markets , switched over to futures one year ago using NT with ZF. My Trading itself concentrates basically on the following markets- FDAX, ES, FGBL, ZN, 6E, 6B.
I like the friendly environment and the cooperative tone in this forum and I hope to be able to give as much qualified information to the community as I am taking out of it.
It will take some time in addition until I get a full command of all forum features so please apologize if somethings goes a litle wrong in the beginning .

Best Regards
Ribben
