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

A polite no for response... Sharing Code to the board

The problem with sharing working code is....

1). I use exception as my driving force... So, if too many folks (I don't know what that number would be)... use my strategy... It no longer works like an exception because it would drive the market when the trigger exists...

If it worked on turn around of top or bottom... then the more people using it would provide a better return...

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)

Thank you for the welcome !


I appreciate mostly the tone and intent of the purpose of this site.
I had no problem signing up as an elite member , just because of your intention.
I have made and lost income in trading. Had the usual experiences, but now
I am focusing on the winning traits needed for consistentcy: detailed journals,
rigorous analysis of daily work, and watching the psychology aspects.
Books inspiring to me are: Trading in the Zone- read many times and learned
something new each time. The Logical Trader also- showing consistency in
one's strategy.
Do not hop from strategy to strategy.
This is a choosing of personal growth, not a quick fix, quick buck industry.
Thanks for the space.
I look forward to positive chat/forums of discussion.
And will be glad to contribute when the time comes.

Hi Greatwest1,

Good to see , finally someone mentioned my personal trading hero Mark Fisher book " The Logical trader". I trade full time CL using ACD method.

PM me if you would like to discuss ACD method as I am always looking to improve on my execution of ACD method.

Hello

Hi everyone, It's great to find a forum where traders can help other traders in their quest to become consistantly profitable. I'm looking forward to reading others posts and gaining insight on how others trade. I trade the ES and YM. I have tried every indicator out there and have found the fewer I use the better I do. I use TradeStation as my platform.

Good trading everyone

Greetings to Mike and All great Traders!

Greetings to Mike and All great Traders!

First, I like to thank Mike for designing and maintaining such a great Forum, and also thank the great sincere contribution and team work of so many great traders, i.e., Perryg, RJay, Sharky, TheWizard, Fat Tails, Lolu, Aslan, ....
I joined ~ 2 weeks ago and I am like a hungry kid in a candy store, reading and reviewing so many great posts, discussions, and trading systems ... Amazing, encouraging, and very educational for my trading career

About my background, I have been introduced to the market and technical analysis by my direct report in a bio-pharmaceutical industry in California about 6 years ago. As soon as I saw the potential exits in the market, that is Compounding, and so many other advantages vs. other owned-businesses, I started my extensive reading and research in this filed. This was a total shift from my 22 years of higher educational training and career path in bio-medical research. However, with strong scientific research background and modeling experiences, I am glad that life offered me this new direction and opportunity. Also. the more I traded live in the market and gained experiences, the more I appreciated and respected the market. I realized that market is the most honest and sincere friend of mine who is reflecting my true psychology and discipline, the one that was not trained well enough by formal education and the industry and needed to be improved significantly to reach consistency.

Anyway, I was able to develop a few profitable scalping and swing trading systems and reached consistency in trading about 2 years ago. However, being busy with my full-time job and being dependent on its income forced me to focus more on development of semi-automatic trading systems. In these systems, I do not need to worry about the Entry and Exits, but need to give directions and define a proper range to the system, so it only trades during the trends in one direction and avoids narrow ranges. I used initially Tradestation and later Multicharts to develop and test systems using easy language coding, which I learned slowly on my own. I like to translate these to C# in Ninja Trader and combine it with the other great Entry/Exit systems and chart types that I came across in this forum.

I will post these ideas and systems in separate sections and looking forward to working with you and create a win-win situation for all.

Best wishes and regards,
Anarirez (Ray)

Hello I'm MadMax

I've been day trading the SPY since '94. I trade from 100-500 shares depending on the strength of the setup and try for $100 plus a trail stop. If I lose $100 I stop for the day; my day being from 7-11 CST. I'm interested in trading futures so I'm trying to learn the in and outs. And honestly, after watching what happened to MF Global I'm already having second thoughts.
