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

New Trader going live

Hello All,

I am a relatively new trader. I have been simulation trading for 12 months and planning on going live within the next 30 days. Just started the entity paperwork yesterday. I found this website, and by far, it is the most informative place I have ever been to. Thanks Mike.

One thing that I find strange about myself, however, is that most people seem to be in love with one indicator or another. I prefer not to use any. They just add noise. Through my simulations, I just 'see' the trend and go with it. Works most of the time (over 70%). I guess we'll see how that translates to real live trading!

Very happy to all of you to the family.

Mike

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)

New Dude around here

Hi all,

sitting here in Munich just started trading 3 weeks ago and I feel very much lost with all those trading plattforms, brokers, data feeders, strategies, market trends, indicators, money management, books about everything, internet with much more, and me standing in the middle of nowhere looking for some good additional income.

So, greetings from the
TradingDude

Let the trades begin ...

There are other sites out there but I never really felt at home with many of them, their userbase is too focused on proving someone wrong instead of trying to help. -- Mike.

Can I please go post this line on every other Trading "Community" out there!

Hello, All:

And, thanks Mike, for creating a site predicated on the idea that ideas are more important than egos. I've been to other sites (we all have) that are filled with naysayer, negativists, self-promoted vendor police and those who generally troll the forum looking for any new idea to slam, or those who believe that their "online credibility," is determined by how many posts they have on record, as opposed to the content and substance of the posts made. I quite frankly, am sick and tired of those kinds of forums and the moderators who continually allow and in some cases, even support that kind of behavior.

So, to this forum I say: Hello World! And, to the idea that a Trading Community should in fact be a Community, I say, bravo! Keep up the good work.
