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 Mauro are, my goal is to not lose money.

Hi All

My name is Sean.

I'm totally new to day trading and am looking forward to learning.

I'm sure there is much essential reading i should be aware of and i'm interested to find out how i actually get started as simply and cheaply as possible in Australia. Anyone?

Cheers all.

Melbourne, Australia.

Hi, Every Body

My name is Alex, I have been trading for stocks for a few years, I plan to trade ES, now I am just trading SIM. I learned a lot of good stuff from this forum, thanks a lot great guys for posting indicators and templates, especially for big mike's Money Managements. The reason I didn't post before is my bad english, but in order to improve myself and contribute a little to the forum, I will post my ES trading journal and my trading template.

Hi, I have been lurking for a few days after a mate recommended this site. No doubt, its prety cool. So will be doing my best to contribute and share. Been trading now for about 7 years, and have recently switched over to Ninjatrader, trading the YM. So hopefully I'll also be doing some learning from the Ninja pro's....

Hi all

Hi all traders

I am just starting with trading, so have no stories about blewing my account

As I don't know much about trading yet I'll definitely need to learn a lot, but that's why I am here. I may not be very helpful at the beginning to others but can always serve providing feedback and fresh ideas.

I am based in London, UK and at the moment I am learning to trade stocks at FTSE 350. Due to time constraints and other responsibilities I only do End-Of-Day trading. I am interested in spread betting (tax free and my trading platform of choice is NinjaTrader (currently testing with free Yahoo feed)

Big Mike: I must also admit I am extremely impressed by the forum you created - I couldn't believe it is only 2 months old!
Great job!

Greeting to you all and happy trading

Hello there,

I'm glad to join this forum and I hope to learn some because I've been unsuccessful for so many years.
