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.

-- Big Mike

newly on board

Hi Mike and all members. I heard of this forum on another forum where respect for one another is, to be generous, lacking. I'm sometimes amazed at what is allowed to be published.
I've been trading for maybe five years. Tried all sorts of Experts, paid advise that not-so-slowly fades away. I have to "pull the covers" on myself and admit I was really lazy about my trading. Got wiped out several times.
For about the last three or four months I've started paying close attention to world events, mostly Europe. Little by little I've grown my account. I can't say I have a "style" or system really. Maybe I do and just don't know it. Main thing is I've learned to "listen" to what others say and do. From the little I've seen here I'm quite impressed and hope to be able to contribute along the way.
Thanks again, all!

I have been trading about 6 years. I did join for the free downloads but have alredy looked at so many indicators I thought, why not try to do this the right way. My trading was pretty mediocore until I really concentrated on trade management to go along with the methodology I use. I now have more confidence and some more success. I review the day every afternoon and now I have to start writing in a journal. The review sure helps . Looking at what the market did not what you did has really opened my eyes. I can trade with bigger stops and I can stay in longer. I hope to learn and contribute in this forum. Thanks for having this for us. It is nice when you finally stop the bleeding in trading. I look forward to the interactions.

I said the icon is to the right of the post. And it is.

Please stop posting in this thread.

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)

Welcome Marty! The best teacher is experience.

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.

Same here....

Quoting 
...been a member of our community for 952 days but haven't posted anything yet...

so sorry for not posting before here.

Trading my personal account for ~10 years, mainly es and fdax future.
