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.

Family Man, Soldier and New Trader

Hello fellow traders,

Glad to have this forum. Been trading for a year and have, of course, made all the classic mistakes new traders make. But, I enjoy trading and keep coming back for more. Call me a glutton for punishment. I work during the day, so I trend-follow grains. When I leave the Army I plan to incorporate scalping the ES into my trading plan as I will need to trade for a living.

Any advice and mentorship is desperately welcomed. Again, very glad to be here.

welcome to bg

you'll have practically everything you need to learn how to trade here at bg

just allocate about a week in reading what interests you, then get on with what you gather from your reading about the directions you wish to take, ok?

crystalize your idea into operational terms and display it here for more experienced traders to offer other pointers to solidify your trading plan, if you wish to be done that way.

or as you mention you can find a mentor. but at this early stage, search, seek and research what you need and what interest you here at bg.... without having to pay any extra to any one which might or might not be able to lead you to trade profitably....

just a thought for you to ponder, if you want to....

welcome and happy learning....

when what you expected did not materialize once, twice or thrice.... in succession, perhaps it is time to stop trading live for a time.... ok? no one, absolutely no one, will laugh at us for stop trading for a time.... to regroup, rethink and reexamine what went wrong. as a matter of fact, it is most prudent for every trader to do so, when calls are going the other way in succession.

sim trade for a few days and reexamine your trading plans, your setup and your execution et al....

and do not, if i were you, attempt to resume live unless you can show yourself that you are profitable in sim.... ok?

sometimes, it is not your setup at all.... it is just the market independent movement.... for that particular day or days that caused you to lose trades.... just have to suck it up.... and keep on trading and NEVER without stops, pls.

particularly, when you know that your call is on the wrong side, get out immediately to preserve your livelihood--NEVER WAIT OUT TO PROVE YOU ARE RIGHT AND THE MARKET IS WRONG....!

cheers, blammo....

Ah-ba-ga-ba wudi

haven't you heard the news about woodies' goodies?

well, you need to search around very quickly and find out for yourself, ok?

i guess you already submitted the 99 usd donation to watch woodie using others' proprietary intellectual properties in his trading room without giving proper credit to the owners; worse yet, he has been claiming those as his own.... well, the 99 most probably is nonrefundable too, right?

any way, more importantly, welcome to bg, there are plenty of indicators around for you to play with, and to your heart's content....

again, welcome wudi.... (is that your chinese name?)

Intro

Thanks for the warm welcome.
After 16 years of investment bank job, I am in the process of fundamentally changing my live and go private trader. No back door. Had highly volatile times in over the years. From holding stocks for years to scalping futures. Striving to "smoothen" performance and income. Less leverage, more patience. Reading some of the posts with great interest. Hopefully can contribute from time to time when I am live.

Hi. I just started looking into trading. A friend helped me get started and gave me some reading material to go over. I haven't made any actual trades yet, but while experimenting with the demo I've seen how easy it is to make money, and also how easy it is to lose money. I have a lot to learn about this and I've been told that this site has a lot of great information.
