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

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

To all the new traders, here are my 2 cents. As we all know there are many , many reasons why new traders fail and continue to lose money. For me, it was having too much information and not really knowing which one suits my style and personality. By the time , I found out, i had lost money for 2 years.

Any trader who wants to be successful and wants to find out in the least amount of time if he/she gonna make it- should first find out a system that will work for them. Do not trade with real money till you have settled on a system.

I wanted the SIMPLEST system and from someone who is not just an educator but a real trader.

For me, it turned out to be Mark Fisher, author of " The Logical Trader" and according to Paul Tudor Jones " There never has been and never will be a better pit trader than Mark Fisher". I read his book 9 months ago and have not looked back. I paper traded for 500 hours to get a feel for the system and the product i trade which is Crude oil futures.

I would be more than happy to help if after reading his book one finds that Mark Fisher system is for them.

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.


let me know when you go live , would be interested to know what system you settled on.

I trade crude oil futures full time , using Mark Fisher ACD system as a base along with Volume profile. Mark Fisher is also author of " The logical trader" and runs a very successful N.Y , US based prop firm.
