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

Very New

Futures Edge on FIO
Hi Big Mike,

I am getting into Trading because a friend of mine convinced me to give it a shot. He has been doing this for the past 3 years and has now started to become successful.

I hope to "Sim" trade long enough to have a comfort zone. If my "Sim" trading is unsuccessful for a two year period I plan on pulling out and risking nothing. (I'm not a big risk taker)

This website seems like a good starting point to develop some ideas and strategies.

Thanks,

Scott

Hi everybody,
I have been interested in trading for many years specifically stocks and options and did some trading in my retirement
account.I have read many books and articles.I decided to find out what futures trading was about and I have become totally immersed. This website seems like a goldmine and I'm enjoying exploring it.

Hi fellow traders!

I am a newbie on the trading scene, there are soooo much to learn on this forum! Thanks Mike to create this forum.
I am not a day trader, not yet at this moment. I am still holding a day job, but my dream is to be a consistent profitable trader so that one day I don't rely on my day job.

Anyway, I am so happy to be part of this trading group and eager to learn as much as I can. Eventually, I would love to make some sort of contribution from my knowledge.


Happy trading everyone!

buying into loosing positions


Hi everyone. I am a C# programmer as a profession who likes to try to write automated trading systems in my spare time. None of which seem any better than the other.
I think most technical indicators are equal. TA just leads to less over betting; and less decision points. Green is up; Red is down. I find pivot points the most useful. Redraw Trigger by different moving average crossovers and targets spaced out using ATRs. I believe in averaging in and buying into loosing positions. Position Sizing. Kelly Criterion. And Hurst Exponents. I use ATRs rather than assuming a Fibonacci extension or retracement. If the market is behaving with fibs; it will be reflected in the Average True Range. A monkey can make money if the market is trending. I'd like to be that monkey.

I have read over 20 pop-TA books. And am done with that education. Green is up; Red is down. And hindsight charts always look great!
