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 all,

I have been a member here on the forum for a little over 70 days and thought I should finally introduce myself. I'm Chris and have been trading on and off for the last 10 years part time. As far as trading experiance I traded elliott wave on 60m hand chart mostly globex currencies and I tried trading stock options on with a MACD style system but it didn't seem to work out as well as the hand charting for me. I am here to learn and grow as a trader also hopefully I can contribute to the community.

Chris

New to this site.


I am also new to this site. I was researching Shadowtraders.com and was lead here.

I am taking a Forex class now with another company.

Also, what does anyone know about Apiary funds where they train you and if you are good enough, they give you their $ to trade with and you keep 60% profits on trades if any?

Hello Mike and to members of your forum;

I'm new to this forum although I signed on a week ago and have been just looking around to see how other traders are doing.

I got into Futures trading back in 1986 with a 50K account and was excited with the potentential trading could bring.
One year later my account was gone and I learned from the start trading is not easy.

Back in 1986 I got live data from a satelite dish that cost $499/month. Orders had to be called in by phone to my broker at Lind Waldock.

Over the years I've traded and blown more accounts in stocks, options & forex. I've tried a lot of programs like Nirvana Systems, Optionetics, Wise Trade, Options Made Easy, Trade Station and currently now in NinjaTrader ...

These days the services and cost to trade are way better than before.

It was not until about three years ago that I've actually started to turn things around with a few autotrade systems.

I hope to learn from others and help if I can.

Best Aloha,
Fame

Moderator Note


When you see someone violating the rules of the forum, do not engage them. Do not go back and forth with them. This is the exact opposite of what you should do.

Instead, use the Report Post feature and report the post. The icon is to the right of every post.

In this case, that room is the worst of the worst, and their tactics prove just how terrible they are. They have one of the worst reputations around.

Hello

Since I've been a member for 100 days and haven't posted anything, thought that now was as good a time as any. I've been trading my personal account for 10+ years, while working full time as an IT consultant. I plan to make a gradual shift from full-time consulting to full-time trading over the next year.

My main trading platform is Ninjatrader, and I'm actively working on learning Ninjascript.
