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

Hi all. I've been lurking for a while and love this site. I'm also a big fan of Ninjatrader. After spending the last year digesting all I can, I've decided it's time to get back to basics. Looking forward to talking strategies here.

Hello

Hi everyone,

I'm a UK based trader and I started in 2007. I've experimented with a lot of methods over the years, but I've started to find some consistency now that I've settled on a few simple methods that suit my personality. My main method now uses Stan Weinstein's stage analysis and point and figure charting methods that I've learnt from Tom Dorsey's site.

I've kept a journal on a UK forum for the last year which has really helped me to develop my method, but the majority of people on there are forex traders, whereas I focus on stocks and commodities mostly. I intend to start a journal on here shortly based around Stan Weinstein's stage analysis and point and figure charting and hopefully it will be well received and I'll be able to discuss my trading with like minded people who'll point out my mistakes and help me improve further.

Cheers

Hi Mike , fellow traders:

"Sorry about taking so long to introduce myself"

I'm relatively new at trading '' about 2 years'' , but every body tells me I must be good at it, cause I haven't lost any money, but 2 years and less than 10k is below poverty level in my book. I think I Have pretty good money mangement skills, "maybe too conservative"and pretty good At keeping my emotions in check, but just can't find the right system that fits me. Just like every body else I've tried every free trial out there at one time are another, and paid for a few," Ablesys, Viper, Decision Bar, Quick Pop, Wiz Trade, On an on an on." Being in your forum I found I can duplicate almost any of there indicators and strategies, "OOPS I apologize" the People here can!! My wife told me that if I was going to make it I would to find a good mentor, problem is, There's too many good people here, but I guess there's nothing wrong with mentors "plurl"

Hope I can get to a point where I can contribute instead of take away. ''going to be a while in this circle''


Many Thanks:

Knight

Hello All,

I joined the forum a coupler weeks ago and although I've "invested in the market" for years it's time for me to take matters into my own hands and become a trader.

I have a question: should I as a beginning trader with little programming experience start with the active trader accounts at Etrade, Schwab, etc. or jump right into a direct brokerage account like IB and add the charting, feeds, etc. My head is spinning a little trying to digest all the info as quickly as possible. I'll be able to open an account with about $50k.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Glad to be part of your network

Hi Mike :

I am so glad I joined this forum. I am a newbie trader, I recently lost a quite a bit of money not knowing anything about the futures market but still getting into it. I think I made some bad decisions and I am starting anew. I am new to NT, new to trading strategies and even charts ! From time to time I might post some very basic questions but it's nice to know that everyone meaning all type of questions are welcomed here so I won't have to worry about someone brushing me off

Thanks again


Thanks,

Syed
