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 Mike & Fellow Traders,

Hv been trading for the last 8 yrs with the last 4 yrs being a full time daytrader (scalper oriented) of the ES and recently the DAX. Like most others have spent a H...U..G...E amount (Time AND Money) in searching for the elusive Holy Grail and Secret of the Pharoah's Indicator - I will not say that it was a bad investment, because on the journey I learnt a lot about myself (in terms of what my comfort level is) as well as the biggest "two-sided" lesson of What to Do AND What NOT to Do (the latter being a much valuable lesson for myself). Before I forget, I also lost considerable money and it is simply the love of trading that kept me going and searching for an answer.

My reason for joining the group is because I echo Mike's KISS philosophy. I have found the Holy Grail and it is located between my ears inside the scalp (no pun intended)! I have gone back to the basics of Price Patterns with a huge focus on good defined (and followed) Money Management process. I have also realized that Indicators are very good at simply "Indicating", nothing more - therefore I use them as such. Although I am a non-techie in terms of programming skills, I am very aware of the computers ability to do calculations much more efficiently than the brain and am all for such activities, but strictly supplemental to the earlier mentioned Holy Grail!

I consider it a privilege to join you folks on this highway and looking forward to the journey!

Introduction to Marine1027(rrama0)

Hi Trader Mike:
Just sent in a lengthy post on my trading-triumps and tribulations-but the system did not take it after saying I was'nt logged in. When I logged in again, it said I was already logged in.
I' re-post later again if you have'nt got my intro.
Thanks Trader Mike!

Hi Mike,

Nice to be here.
I trade the ES in the morning and work all day in the IT industry.
Been trading a couple of years and look forward to dropping the day job.

I have been using Tradestation for 6 months (with no problems) and Stock Charts for 20 years. Tried to use NT and downloaded it 3x but could not get even a chart up. Found their tech support useless since they kept sending me likes to videos. Not being able to talk to some one is a huge negative for me.
So as far as NT I am useless. Have been trading for 30 years using stock charts and now Trade Station. I may not belong in this forum since the last couple of emails with NT support got so heated they told me to unistall it and basically go away.
By the way the heated part was on my end.

Hello!!


I tested systems part time for many years, they were all random but whatever.. a couple of years ago I just overthrew the birth-school-debt-work-death cycle and started testing more random systems but full time. Eventually the systems were not entirely random.... Finally I realized that maybe backtesting was too sterile of an environment to really learn much so about 120 days ago I gave myself 90 days to learn to screen trade.. and it's working out well really, on the simulator I pulled out $650 in one hour trading one YM contract the other day... I'm still incorporating things into my system but I have to hit it with the real account pretty soon or wifey is going to do a murder suicide... I hear her mumbling when I wake up in the middle of the night, it's very motivating

I need to get a cool icon for the site...
