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

Hi

I've been trading/investing as a hobby for the past 12 years with varied sucess (mostly failures).

3 years ago I developed an algorithm to trade indexes which has been working profitably, however I still haven't fully automated it...

I'm interested in further developing fully automated strategies.

Whilst researching the NT platform, I came across this forum a few weeks ago - having access to this community has defintely influenced my decission in going forwards with NT.

Thanks to Big Mike and all the Contributors to this site!

Thanks

DirtyBeach

intro

Day traded stocks 10 years ago part time. Net result: small overall loss.
Day traded google calls 5 years ago. Net result: small net gain.
Decided to stop trading and read/study as much as I could.
2013 is the year I start up again hoping to stay with it and become full time and profitable.
Optometrist by trade. Semi-retired. Not any retirement built up- too much recession in Ohio over the years and poor money management. So this trading endeavor is muy importante-it's called survival-make or break time!
Does anybody have experience with the trading school advertised on the radio (s&p futures) You get a 30 minute live feed as a free intro.
Does anybody have an online trading broker suggestion to start my account?
Thanks!

Hello friends


Hello friends.
I am new to forex trading. My name is Svilen and English is not my primary language so I hope you understand.

In this forum I heard from a friend but unfortunately currently studying serious trading, platform for trading and also in addition I work shifts so I'm not very active for now ... sorry about that.
All good by me. Success!

Hi Guys,

Created an account a while ago and forgot to introduce myself. I've spent some time reading through some journals. and it's fascinating reading. With a day job, I need to figure out how I can slowly get into trading. I like the idea of day trading as you are not in the market for any duration, so this is where I'll focus my reading.

Cheers,

Photon

New to Big Mike's

Hi everyone. I've been trading two years now and I too blew out my first two accounts. I'm trading with a solid plan and much more patience. I am becoming more consistent now and I'm looking for ways to improve my dome. looking for more levels on the ninja dome so I can see big money. Any suggestions? Thanks- Gio

Based in London and looking to day trade US stocks. Glad to join forum and look forward to building experience and skills slowly and carefully with a view to day trading full time in the future. Taking on board some of the doomsday warnings of day trading but keeping an open mind and researching a ton of books.

Regards,
PC

New trader from London


HI everyone

I'm a student currently studying in London, England. I've always been interested in trading/investment and after having read a few books I've decided to finally apply it and set myself on the long journey of becoming a successful trader.

Looking forward to talking to others on this forum and learning more.

Cheers
