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.

I'm a full time (sim) scalper, still in the learning phase. I also had my system trading phase (live, swing) but stopped due to too much heat taken.
I have a journal at fle's trading journal - The Price Action Forum - where I post my FGBL / NQ trades. My detail are also posted there, for those of you who are interested.
By joining, I hope to here to be able to share with other BUND traders, a rather rare species..
Have a nice trading.

Hi All,

This is my first forum. I ran into mikes blog and just followed it here. I traded off and on for a good number of years. I took my series 7&63 and went with a prop firm in 2003 for almost two years. I have not traded much since then, loooking to get back into it. I look forward to being here and thanks to Mike and the rest of the crew for sharing their trading savy.

Just droppin by to say hey... been lurking here a while and quite impressed. Thanks to Mike and everyone for the great contributions here. I'm not a big fan of indicators in general, but definitely some interesting ones here.

I've been sim / part time trading, developing my trading plan, systems/setups and screen time for nearly 2 years now. I am primarily a discretionary, price action / order flow scalper of index futures (ES). Finally, ready or not, I'm going to take the plunge give trading full time for a living a go this fall.

I've been trading full time for about 10 yrs. Seen many forums come and go but I'm very impressed with the quality and openness that exists here. With "support" I hope this one stays on for many years.

System Trading Thesis

Hey all,

I ran into this site on a google search for NinjaTrader 7 and ended up finding a great little community for one of my passions. So here's a little info about me and I look forward to getting to know you all better

I have been trading equities, options, futures and forex intensely for around 2 years now. I've had a diverse mix of spectacular successes and dismal failures. But through it all I've learned quite a bit. Recently, I decided to narrow my focus to futures & forex trading (mainly the ES) and to design automated trading systems in Ninjatrader. I've decided to go the safe road and sim trade until I have enough experience & confidence to consistently trade for a profit.

I am also in college pursuing a double major in Accounting & Finance. I was recently admitted into the Honors in Business program, where the goal is to produce a thesis paper in 1 year. Though the paper is still in it's inception phase, I have decided that the subject will be related to automated system trading. It would be great to be able to collaborate with the community here, and to be able to share the results of the paper when it is done.

Thanks to Mike for putting this all together, and I hope that I can learn and grow with you all in the future.
