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.

Hello everyone,

I've been trading for about 3 years. I started off with index ETF's, then moved to options, then finally settled with futures (index and currency). It's been a long journey, first thinking trading was really easy, then thinking trading was really hard. I've searched and searched looking for trading systems, indicators, etc that would compliment my personality. I've seen methods that work well, but didn't fit my trading style (either they were too long-term, or too discretionary, etc.) I'm currently having some success with Fibonacci and support/resistance levels. I have a CS degree and am looking into Easylanguage, so I guess my mind favors a more mechanical approach.

I spent a few hours reading posts and noticed that people here are very friendly. Trading tends to be a solitary business so I'm glad there are people willing to talk.

Hi, my name is David and I'm from Czech Republic. Currently I'm living in Spain and focus on trading. I'm in papetrading phase and my future idea is work on AOS. I worked as a programmer and I have a lot of experience in programming. For this reason I love NT because it provides me to develop in C#, which is great and powerfull language. If is there someone who wants to share my idea, I'll be appreciate to contact me.

Happy trading

Hi Big Mike and everybody,

I'm somewhat new to trading. I've been trying some different things over the past few years, with usually less than profitable results. Looking forward to the forum and learning to be a profitable trader. Hopefully someday soon I will be able to help the newbies out.

Hi Big Mike,

Glad to have found your Forum.

I have not really been into forums but was interested to read some stuff that you had in.

I have been in the business for a few years having traded outcry and was around for the birth of electronic futures. In a short space of time I have seen many changes and many different people come and go.

I hope to have some good dialog with some of the people here and look forward to the challenges ahead !

Hi everyone,
I have been investing in stocks/ETFs/options for quite a while, but have close to none trading experience. I am good at developing software, and want to learn the skill of developing profitable automated trading strategies. This forum is a great place to start. Thanks to you all

Hi everyone. I'm an Italian trader and found this website which I think is one of the most useful that I've ever visited. Thanks BigMike for giving us the chance to improove our trading methods. I usually trade stocks and futures but I'd like to know more about forex.
I'm starting using Multicharts because I think is very powerful, hope to find lots of traders that use this software.
Have a nice day to all of you.
