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 everyone,

I look forward to learning from all of you guys/gals about how to stay afloat in this business. I started out trading forex, and have switched to trading options. Had some successes and failures, but I've tried to learn a valuable lesson with each failure... So in a way, I haven't lost anything!

Glad to be here!

Hello World!

Hi Mike and Hello Everybody!

My name is Eugene and i am kinda new to the world of futures trading! Previously i had some experience in a physical commodities trading company and met some people who where pretty successful in trading futures in Europe. Although i always understood the mechanics of the futures market i never had the chance to try it. However, this year i was completing my Master in Finance and was offered a free training course form a prop shop located in UK and this is how i got introduced to this business. We were using CQG and charts from ProRealTime. I became extremely interested in trading CL because i knew how the physical market works and form my previous job i still had access to major Trading Journals with lots of very important info.

Now, i am planning to open an account with (not sure if we can speak abt that on forum) and plan to start working on evenings. I would be extremely interested in talking to somebody about how to organize your workplace and other details which are hidden for beginners.

Cheers! Mike Thanks a lot for building up this forum!

Introduce myself

Hi,

I am 59 years old, have a full time job as a researcher and student teacher. My interest to trading is mostly due to two reasons: first, I want to maintain my, starting to decline, abilities to learn new concepts and activities, and, second, probably find a possibility to finance my hobby, self-making of furniture.

Thanks

Thanks Mike,

I am new trader. Basically, I own my own business but want to do something different. I have been searching for years to find something that I can do different to make a living. 2 years ago I stumbled accross trading and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Well....I havnt made any money yet, but it is something I am very pationate about.

I can literally spend hours and hours researching, learning, and backtesting. For the most part I am still "sim" trading and have only been "live" a few times. I am in no rush to jump into "live" fulltime and loose a ton of money like most traders seem to do. Like most I have tried tons of indicators, systems, and different charts. I have even spent time in a couple different "live" trade room. I have learned a lot, but I realize i am still an infant in the trading world.

Just like your intro, i have learned that there is no "holy grail" or "magic" indicator. I have narrowed down all the systems and indicators to just some simple ones with simple rules and now I am soley focused on myself and what I can control. My goals are now not necessarily how much i can make or what indicators will work, but more on trade management and my ability to follow my plan that i have put in place.

My plan has worked for me in "sim" and backtesting. I just need the confidence and dicipline to implement it with "real" money. I feel i am getting closer to the day when i go live again and not look back.

So thankful there is a "positive" thread to follow.
