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.

Why crude? Day trading? Swing?

Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and have been trading futures for a little over a year now. I traded Forex for a couple of years before that, but still fairly new to trading. I like CL & GC.

Thanks Mike...

Intro message


Hello All,
I was referred to the site several months ago while looking for some information and signed up but I haven't been active, just beginning to learn some of the basic navigation for the site.
I've traded for about 25 years off and on with both some success and without, never really top drawer for any consistent period or was under-capitalized. Traded stocks in a daytrading room eons ago, OEX options and futures. Looking to focus on futures, including FX.
I've worked out some systems with reasonable backtested expectancies and hope to get them live soon automated in Ninja-much more to learn in writing the strategies; in the meantime I'm trading my descretionary system and learning to follow my rules. The system works when I execute it flawlessly. The market is willing to give up cash to disciplined and responsibe traders, and is just as happy to take a donation from those who are not disciplined and responsible.

Howdy All

New to trading looking at the forex market with shock and awe.

Started out my demo account about 2 months ago and am only now starting to recoup the losses suffered in the beginning but still far from consistant.

Hoping I can learn from other traders wisdom in taking on the beast that is forex.

See you all out there.

new to the forum


I was introduced to this forum by a friend who recommended it to me. I have been trading for over 30 years. Ten years ago I developed my own system which I have found helpful for intraday trading. I will try to post when I have a signal stronger than the one I have now
