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

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.

New to the Trading World

I'm just getting into the trading world. I've always been interested in the markets but never pursued trading until now. There is a wealth of knowledge on this site and I'm trying to take in as much as I can possibly handle.

The first decision I find myself having to make is buying a computer for trading as well as figuring out what platform I will feel most comfortable using. I welcome any and all suggestions. Going to search for threads now because I'm sure this has been covered many times.

Looking forward to the extreme learning curve and I will apologize now for the questions I will have in the near future.

Thanks,
Mike

Hello all,

I'm from the Czech Republic and my story is similar, as with most retailers. Commodities trading is devoted to a little over one year. His first business account I mopped up with a very poor access, failure to follow trading system. Currently working on their mind and build a new trading system. Sorry, but I do not speak English, use Google Translate.

I would like to wish everyone a successful business merchants.

hello

My story

Hi Big Mike,
hi everybody,
I briefly introduce myself as a trader.
I started to trade at the end of 2008 and in 3 months I doubled the account.
That made me think that I was a genius of finance.
3 month later I had no money in the account.
So, I started to study.
I do my everyday job and since march 2009 I study in every moment in which it is possible to do (morning, lunch time, evening, on the plane, being in the car waiting for the green of the traffic light, sitting in the toilet...).
In the meantime I met one good guy and, thanks to him, I knew another good guy and, both helped me a lot.
Now I am here.
I thank you Big Mike and all the other guys that posts on this forum.
I hope to be able to post something usefull.
Good trading to everybody
