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 Mike and Fellow Traders

futures io on Twitter
HI -- I'm brand new to this forum today -- just started looking around, but I like it already. It looks like there are lots of great ideas being exchanged, and I especially like the positive and helpful tone of the posts.

I'm a fairly new futures trader, after many years of longer-term equities investing -- been actively trading futures for about a year now -- biggest challenge is discipline and patience, like most beginning traders.

I'm looking forward to participating in the forum and learning from more experienced traders.

hi, Mike and traders ,

just joined the membership today.
I've been trading futures for about 3 years. I mianly trade ES and YG and sometimes US, EC,QM and QN. My past weakness was the tendency to take small profits but holding on to the losers for too long. But, I am getting much better these days and green about 4 out of 5 days.

Thanks for the open forum and the opportunity to learn from other traders. ShokoH

Glad to be part of the family

Hi Mike and All,
I've been trading for 3 years and just love just concentrating on the futures. In and out, and holding nothing by the end of the trading day.
I've started with the ES and now expanded to currencies and gold. Looking forward to being part of your great team.
Trader C
