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.

Hola fellow traders

I have been trading for several years now and probably like a few others tried a number of systems, siignals and software, some good, most hopeless. It was not until I decided to focus and learn about a few key technical indicators that my trading started to take shape. I have a day job which takes a lot of my time, however I have reached a position wherebye I no longer need to work and I am very keen to commence trading full time. I am endeavouring to make a consistent 40 -50+ pips a day, once I reach that point I will be all systems go, I will not terminate employment until that goal is achieved though(consistency being the key). So if any-one has shared wisdom I would welcome the guidance.

Regards

The Doji

New to Forum Intro

Hello All. I'm a little different than most traders in that I blew up several trading accounts being stubborn -- I don't like to take losses! Consequently, I have taken some heavy losses over the years. My technique is satisfactory -- it appears that no matter what strategy I use I manage to make some money. Hence, I ;m unable to hold on to it. Currently I sell credits spreads and been doing so for quite some time now. However, last year I signed up for day trading classes. I looked into day trading years ago but settle for selling options instead. This year 2013, I will get my mind right and learn to day trade. Hopefully, I can learn to cut my losses early. To be honest, that's why I join this forum -- maybe I can run upon a thread that can help me with my weakness. And, the same time I can contribute to others about why I unable to pull the plug on a trade. Thanks for listening!

Hello

I'm a small trader who likes it when prices fall because it feels like a sale. I put up a question in one of the sub-forums that also describes my tentative thinking. (Not sure if it's the right sub-forum though -- I put it in the IB platform sub-forum with the title "questions about IB margin IRAs")

My other interests include weightlifting and tough religious questions (you can always PM me )
