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.

My Intro - Any Crude Scalp suggestions

Mike glad to be a part of your community. I have been on demo for about 5 months, NT7. I have not been consistent enough in my results to feel confident going live but I think I am getting closer . I view it like a long internship. You do the hard work but don't get paid. (well at least you don't lose $ either). The last few weeks I have focused on one market, crude and one type of trade style, scalping.

If any members have any suggestions on NT7 indicators that work well with Crude and a scalping trade style I would be grateful for your help.

Many Thanks

Hello everyone,

I'm new here. I am trying to learn trading, but I'm currently full time employed. I found this site through FutureTrader71's webinars on YouTube. I really like the MarketProfile view of the world.

Not much more to say now, but I love the site and webinars. Keep up the good work.

Regards, Robocod.

Thanks Mike; I'm not new to trading ( S&P ) but I AM new to so many losing trades; especially in the past 18 months; what's happening ?? I know almost everything about trading including position placing, position sizing, trade management, loss cutting; control of emotions, risk taking, internet reliability, who's a good IB; who's a reliable clearing firm; what the bots are doing; fundamental observations ( the Fed and ECB ), current economic conditions, and " Zero Hedge" Tyler Durden info. EVERYTHING. And still, I place a trade and I get whacked ( I'm not from Sicily ) . Why is this happening ?? Is it b'cuz of statements like Keynes made that markets can stay crazier than you can stay solvent ?! Or am I a proxy for the retail trader that pros trades AGAINST ?

greetings

Greetings everyone --

I'm old/new to trading. I'm originally from Chicago. My dad had a membership at the CBOT and I had nearly every job you can have on a trading floor aside from pit trader. That was in the mid eighties. When I left Chicago I also left the markets, but always watched over my shoulder as electronic trading evolved. Over the years my occupation has been in software as a developer, systems designer and project manager. Incidentally my first programming jobs were around the markets and now I'm coming full circle back to them. I wish I had never left, but back in the day leaving Chicago basically also meant leaving the markets. How things have changed.

As of the time of the writing of this little intro here I am focused on trading strategy development and platform evaluation. I'm learning something new every day and it's a blast.

Cheers and thanks Mike for creating the forum.

-- Rick

Hello All - Not particularly new to investing but very new to trading - two different animals as my account balance will attest to. Hope to glean some more insight into the world of trading!
