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.

Hello All,

I am electronics engineer and spent around twenty years in information tech industry. I have traded stocks and options for around fifteen years. I had some Great years and few not so great years. I am always learning the market and working towards the goal to become full time trader. Early this year quit my job as I.T Architect and started trading full time.

Currently trading TF intra day using tick charts and looking to trade CL in the future. I have long way to go to become a pro, but I deligently working on it every day.

Hi Mike and the gang!

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone, as I've finally decided to join the community and created an account. I've been lurking about for a couple years now. If you ever use the Babypips forums you'll find me there.

A little bit about myself:

I started learning how to trade when I was 12, starting with equities. By the time I was 15, I was trading Forex. As a result of my interests with the markets, I am now taking Computational Finance as my degree in university.

Just the past couple of years, I have been trading 100% automated using quantitative analysis. I have developed my own algorithmic trading platform and am only now starting to use MultiCharts as an offline tool to help develop and perform periodic optimisation on trading systems. I also use Adaptrade's Market System Analyser for further Portfolio analysis.

Would love to meet some fellow algo traders and learn more.

Hi All,

First let me say thanks to Big Mike. This site is impressive and I can't imagine the time you have spent putting this together and keeping it going.

I have been trading futures full time for about 2 years now. I did stock trading for about 4 years prior.

I came across this forum doing some research on NT, as some of the things I am currently working in TS are not working out as I hoped.

Hello traders.
I trade since 2008. My mainly traded instruments are crude oil and gold and DAX when in crude and gold there is no much volatility.
And since 2011 I trade for a living. The trading is just setting me free

Hello Big Mike,

I am not yet a trader but start learning from now on.
I wish to be all-rounder which mean know how to trade stocks/ FOREX/ Commodities, as you probably know trader cannot alive if they only know one of the trading vehicle.
and then my target is to learn how to use programming to indicate / automate my trade...etc.

I wish to learn all these from you.
