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 from France,

I would like to tell a big Thank you to Mike for this website/blog. Very interesting
Sorry for my bad English.

I don't know if I can to indicate my blog address, www.1milliondollarsbaby.com If not please delete it.

Hello to you all,
First let me thank you for allowing me be part of the club.
It seems good money is being made here.
To be honest, I'm quite new in this business.
I used to buy and hold stocks, no more then that.
That did not work out in the way I wanted, so is was time to make a switch.
Time for action!
My favorite instrument at the moment is the Future Dax.
For the time being I'm using the services of an advisor, that are really profitable without any doubt.
But it would give me some extra satisfaction if I'd be able doing it on my own.
In my opinion this forum could be helpful in reaching my goals.
So I'm very anxious to know what future will bring.

Good luck to everyone!

Marcel

I'm a semi-retired engineer.....I do a little design work for other firms at home since going through a very rough stint of chemotherapy. I'm finally smiling again, about life in general, but certainly not at my finances...they got tanked..no, the correct word would be sunk, by all the medical bills my insurance refused to pay.

Nevertheless, I'm still hanging on to a few bucks in my MB Trading account and am a steadfast NinjaTrader user.

I seem to have lost a lot of my indicators, especially the ones that duplicated the Blue Wave Precision Trading package........grandkids can do great things with a computer

Anyway, if someone out their can help me get those back, I would humbly appreciate it. They actually made me some good money IF, one uses his own common sense and removes greed from the equation.

Very Best Regards to all of you out there and it's a pleasure to see others pursuing their goals and dreams in life.

Do you need computer help or files?
Were they deleted, lost, etc?

Enjoy your stay at futures.io (formerly BMT)

JP, Sorry to hear of your troubles. Hopefully there are some folks here who can help. I find the d9ParticleOscillator (Elite/VIP section) and SMI2 (Stochastic Momentum Index) particularly helpful. I don't suppose your "coverage" was through BlueCross/BlueShield by any chance, was it?

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Indicators

It was just some indicators that I had downloaded from several sites that resembled the Blue Wave indicators. They were posted on several different sites but I can't find them now. I was able to use them with NT and change the setups to suit myself.
Thx for your reply.
Jim

Hi guys, please continue the Healthcare discussion in Off-Topic. I moved the posts to this thread:

https://futures.io/off-topic/1059-healthcare.html

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

d9ParticleOscillator


I founded the final SMI2 but I didn't see the "d9ParticleOscillator" listed.
Of course my eyes are not the best anymore.....neither is my brain.
