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.

Full time South African Futures trader

Hi All

Thanks for the super forum Mike.
I am a former stockbroker turned full-time futures trader in South Africa. I trade ALSI futures which is our version of ES except there's a lot more noise and volatility around. Average daily range is around 300 with index value of 36000.

I am using Omnitrader Pro for analytics.

If there are any other SA futures traders wanting to contact me please do so.

Thanks

Sarel

Hi every one,


I just bought the 3 XXXXXXX sofwares en December 2012 and want to share my experience.

After 2 years of webinars and research to improve my setups by probing various indicators and
techniques (name it, I know it) I began Tape reading.
But tape reading with the DOM and the Time and sales (NinjaTrader) is not an easy task.

I developed a technique which seemed efficient on the Emini-ES , but only in the night
session. I used the NinjaTrader replay accelerated mode and had mostly winners ( 9 of 10)
The night session is very slow and I never tried to trade it live;
and in the day session I couldn’t follow, the game was to fast….

One day I investigated XXXXXXX and I immediately saw that this 3 softwares were unique and would allow me to follow and anticipate the day session movements in the short term.
I viewed some No BS trading free videos, observed my 3 softwares in action and began to understand something.
I am a Beginner and I mostly win my one tick on the SIM (live) trade ( Emini -ZB ).

I bought the software the 19 of December 2012 and I am very pleased to see that it is really possible to anticipate the order flow in the very short term. But that is enough to make a few ticks.

So I am going to improve my technique and when the time comes I shall trade live…


Have a nice day,

Raymond Manny (an enthusiastic Trader )

What is the name of theXXXXXXXX softwares that you have bought? I am interested in learning tape-reading too.

Hi and thank you for the very positive and friendly welcome from BigMike.

I have been slow to post, as have had my head down on a strategy writing/testing project.

My main interest is day trading NQ and CL. Am very into SMAs and like the stochastic indicator when the markets are trending (with momentum).

Best wishes to all for a healthy and prosperous 2013.

Hi. I used to trade South African ALSI index futures. Stopped since moving to Australia in 2004. Thinking of starting trading again. Probably Forex: more convenient trading times.

Introduction

Hello,

I have been a reader of this site for years, a member for 277 days( thanks to the tag up above). It's about time I go elite and start to contribute! (You don't need to go to elite to contribute but I feel I owe @bigmiketrading for a lot, so thank you BIG MIKE!...


About me:

I am a trader following my own plan since 2005. I am a former active US Marine that walked right from that world into trading with no open arms whatsoever(influenced by an ad on youtube). After blowing my accounts up iraq style and going through brokers like ex-girlfriends, blaming them for my misfortunes( and yelling ...sorry guys!)... I decided I needed to find myself some information and landed at an empty Google search bar with a blinking selector. I found nothing... I found all of the forums that everyone else found (and signals, services etc.. worthless and expensive). I was an avid poster searching for the "holy grail" in all of them, then I found @bigmiketrading.

I can honestly say that I learned to trade from STUDYING THE MARKETS(only way imo) , but learned to control my risk and refine my strategies from @bigmiketrading and it's wonderful contributors (not to mention the FACT that there is no holy grail !!! ).

Thank you to BIG MIKE all of the people who constantly post the TRUTH and GOOD information. I look forward to doing everything I can to contribute to the integrity of this forum.

From a guy who listened to it all, believed 2% and landed here.

-CVTRADER.

Newbie

I'm Remy and I'm a novice. I've been trading for almost a year. My first introduction to trading was from a business partner, who persuaded me to attend a one week trading seminar in Austin, TX.

I lost a little money, and realized what I learned in the first week wouldn't even qualify being called pre-school for traders!

I've discovered Market Profile, and have been reading and studying it everyday, starting with Daltons books.

Looking forward to moving from novice to beginner.
