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

Introduction

Hi Everyone,

I am new to thinking seriously about trading, and am quite relieved to find what seems to be a supportive and considerate community forum for like minded people.
I am still in my initial education stages and have yet to settle on a particular instrument, system etc. Also, I am in Australia so time zones are a consideration and I am looking with interest toward the European markets which work well for me time wise.
I have dabbled in swing trading stocks and done ok, but through luck rather than skill. A few years later I found the time to try again and moved to options. Didnt do so well there and my lack of education cost me.
This time around I am attempting to develop a sound understanding of what I am actually doing before I do it, but I am looking at futures as my vehicle of choice.
While it is an aspiration of mine to eventually trade for a living, presently I have to maintain a day job and so I am going slowly, but enjoying the process (with no money on the line as yet).

I am looking forward to learning on this site, though I will probably be quiet on the posting front until I actually have learnt enough to give a useful opinion. I reserve the right to post a few idiotic questions though.

Thank you to Mike for putting in such an effort to create and maintain this forum and to all the members who are willing to share their knowledge and experience with those of us starting out.

Newbie on steep learning curve

Hi to all,

My name is Jay and I am semi-retired.

Based in Europe, I am new to trading and am currently testing out various platforms, paper trading only. So far, it has been totally fascinating and I wish I had looked into trading before; I previously worked in the field of information analysis which has numerous similarities with trading as interpretation is key. My current and favourite platform to date is NinjaTrader.

My preferred market is currently stocks, most especially tech, resources and energy which I paper-trade on the FTSE AIM, Tech and Small categories. I also keep an eye on the NASDAQ.

Happy trading (this seems to be the 'bon mot') !

Hello everyone

Hi everyone,

I have been trading equities for around 13 years. I have recently jumped into the world of futures (primarily ES and NQ) and it has been a roller coaster. I am looking to learn more about trading futures (one of my goals for 2013) without blowing up my account. The webinars I have watched already have been fantastic and I look forward to contributing to the site.

Thank you Mike for providing such a great forum for traders all over the world.

Charles
