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

Mike: I would like to change my user name from Bad Dog Trader to Trader Duck but I can't find where I can do that. You see, I'm not a bad dog anymore. I'm more of a good duck these days. Quack.

Hey all,

I am primarily an options trader making the transition into futures. I trade out of Canada!

Looking to absorb as much information as I can, and translate my success from trading options into futures

Hey: I received a notice that I hadn't posted (for 7days) so here is my first.
I was a bond trader / portfolio manager/ treasurer for over 20 years.
I consider myself a technician vs. fundamentalist ( but understand that gobblie gook too.!) As in, this Mania in financial assets has made "value investors" non existent...For now!

Value is 1:1 Net book or lower (always after deducting goodwill & other intangibles) to start!

Ok so now for something of trading relevance....
At today's close ( ES)..
I believe the minor 4th wave {of a larger 3rd wave as part of a much larger wave 1}, is complete after retracing approx. 46% of that leg, from 1355 - ish. The corrective 4th wave took a violent upward path of 72, 55 & two nearly equal 81+ point rallies = net total 106. In what is known to Elliott purists, as a Double three..written as {a-b-c- X- a-b-c}...{wrong holding above 1193}
So lock & load your safety belts boys & girls

Hello Everyone

I wanted to say hi as I've been a member of futures.io (formerly BMT) forum for about a week. I've enjoyed reading thru many of the forums and look forward to contributing in the future. I have been trading full time since 2001. Like most Iíve made many of the common mistakes along the way but am happy to be successful at this stage. I usually trade the ES every day. I also like to trade the best hot stocks of the day or my focus list of high beta names.

Mike Thanks for a great place to interact and learn!

Regards,
keno

In a new thread please --- lets keep this thread focused just on introductions.



Thx,
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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

New Day Job!


I love my New Day Job!
I retired from working at Pump Station #4 on the Alyeska Pipeline in '09 and started studying Technical Analysis full time. The brokers lost every penny I gave them so I knew I had to invest for myself. In the first six months I realized I already knew more about trading than any of the brokers. They don't study much and not the right stuff. I read almost all of the articles under the Chart School Tab on the stockcharts.com website. It is the encyclopedia of trading; highly recommended it. Then I found Nexgen. Quack! Because I had already read so many of the top shelf books on Technical Analysis, I could see right away how powerful the Nexgen system was. You might say they had me at "Hey, try this". In my continued study I have found how to optimize their software beyond what they teach. However, I play a lot of internet blitz chess at The Internet Chess Club (ICC). These quick games that last only a couple of minutes have made me somewhat of an action junkie; not a good habit as a trader. So, I'm doing the "in the zone" training so this dog will stop chasing cars....er, I mean price. So I changed my log in name from "Bad Dog" the tire biter to "Trader Duck". Hope this helps. Quack! Trading is my favorite video game.Do ya love it or what? Ya gotta love it.
