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.

New to trading


I am just now discovering the concepts of day trading. I have been playing with Ninjatrader for the last three months and have enjoyed the wealth of knowledge this forum has to offer.

Hi, just thought I'd introduce myself. I trade mostly CL these days discretionally and am trying to automate some simple things in stocks and FX. I use NinjaTrader for manual trading, TradeStation for research and Interactive Brokers for execution of stocks and currencies.

Hey Everybody!

Greetings from Altoona, AL! My name is Ron Kiker and I have been trading for a while. This is my second forey into the trading world. I traded the futures market (mostly ags and meats) back in the 90's and lost my shorts (and my longs, come to think of it). It has taken me since the 90's to convince my wife to let me try again.

I'm doing much better this time in that I have been able to switch to working part-time as a consultant and trade full-time, as opposed to working full-time and trading part-time.

I have been actively trading for aboout a year, now. Primarily trade the ES and the NQ. I daytrade exclusively, no over-night positions.

I consider myself to be somewhere between a beginner and intermediate trader. I say that because I have been at it long enough and learned enough to realize that I still have so much more to learn. If I am not trading, I am reading and studying about trading.

Take care,
Ron

google and you'll find out a lot more. watch your step there pls.

I gave Apiary a try and other than the possibility of using their money I didn't receive anything that made me a better trader. I paid the fee but they refunded it when I said it wasn't working for me. We are all different and maybe it will work for you.

I also gave TopStepTrader a try. I liked their approach much better and one thing I got out of it was that I was not yet ready to trade live.

Whoever you go with I don't think you should expect them to really be of much help to you other than provide funds if you prove yourself - and that's a pretty good reason. However if you have the funds and you are a profitable trader then why not take 100% of the profit?

BTW - the main reason these didn't work for me was the amount of 'noise'. Too much happening from too many people with different ideas.

I am Canadian and use Mirus (Ninjatrader). I can (but don't) trade currencies (i.e. 6E, 6C, 6a) but not forex per se. I also use Interactive Brokers but it is my understanding that their data feed is filtered and therefore no where as good as Mirus.

Hope that helps.

Spread Trading


Hi Everyone,

I trade futures spreads, mostly in the agricultural commodities using seasonality. (Welcome to Moore Research Center) I find I have to look at a lot of charts until I find one or two that looks good enough to trade. Still learning lots. Hard to find advanced spread trading info.

Have traded Crude, Euro, Canadian$, wheat, corn, soybeans, canola but not with any consistency.

Brett Steinberger's book 'The Daily Trading Coach' has been extremely helpful.

I like the helpfulness in this forum and the level of knowledge from y'all. Webinars are excellent.

Mike, thank you very much for all your efforts
