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.

Hi everyone,

im 18 years old and live in Munich, Germany.

I started trading in september 2011 and after destroying my first real acc, i started to work hard on my trading style everyday and i collected a lot of information and experience for making my trading better.

I use some other Forums but only for Forex, a customer consultant from NinjaTrader told me about this forum and it looks nice!

So i hope im welcome here

Good Trading!

Jan's introduction

Hi Mike, everyone,

I came accross this amazing forum more than a year ago when I was looking for a "magic" indicator. Back then I felt that I had all neccessary information for successful trading and didn't feel like participating in any forum, since it was waste of my time. What a stupid attitude. After very "successful" trading period when I reduced my account balance to almost zero and went back to market replay/SIM, I now know that there is always something new to learn and every single post can get me closer to my dream of trading fulltime.

A bit about myself. I work as a solution architect in a sw development business. I kind of like it but it takes a lot of my time which I would rather spend with my family or travelling... since, you know, life is short. That's why for the last 2 years my dream has been and always will be to become a fulltime trader. And I think this forum might help me with that. Thanks for it Mike.

Fresh Start

Hi Mike!

I am a complete noob to the forum as well as trading. I use the NinjaTrader software in simulation right now to learn my way around trading options and day trading.

I look forward to contributing here and adding some tools (not to mention dividends ) to my tool belt.

Glad to be here, ...

Looks like an interesting place for starters. - For the most part I'm a position trader using stocks & etf's. Charts are from TC2K with Omni Trader as a mechanical assistant, ... simply for potential picks, nothing more. Nothing happens unless the chart still looks good in TC2k.
