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 Mike,
Hello Traders,

Iīm a futures-trader and nearly 4 weeks ago I came to Ninjatrader (after testing many others before) and to this Forum and everything looks good so far.
Thank you Mike - good idea and great work!

Happy trading to all,

Since you're new, all posts will be "new" unless you've read them recently. In order to subscribe (I assume you mean be notified when there's a new post), you can click the "Follow Thread" button at the top of the thread and you will be notified by email if any new posts come into that thread.

Welcome to (formerly BMT),

Hi Everyone....
I also have the same exact story as to losing my port 3 times before learning a lesson....and still
To be honest.. the market has taught me more about myself than anything else I have decided to take on in life....
I mostly trade weekly options....
I currently use TOS and Schwab for my trading.....been trading for 4 years....
I belonged to many groups and chats and found some individuals who only had their best interests....
Looking to find a good home and learn and contribute where and when i can.....
Anyhow Best of Luck to all of us......

I would just like to introduce myself, my name is Lyn, I have been experimenting with forex for the past 2 years. Have not achieved much as yet. Have made many trades and have lost just as many breaking even. Have spent the past year learning different trading techniques such as harmonics, fibonacci, heiken ashi, etc. I am now currently attempting to use the Slumdog Technique of making small profits and compounding to reach a short term goal. Hope to learn a lot from this site.
