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.

Great Forum!

I've been a professional trader for about 15 years, but not a professional programmer. I was looking at MP for NT (which is brand new to me, I used TradeStation for many years).
What's the deal with all these different types of GOM files? Is there a video out there that can clear that up?

Thanks Mike and everyone else!

hello @everybody

gerretings from Switzerland! I live near the capital town Bern and my main job is IT consultant.

I started with trading stocks just at the end of the bubble and burned a lot of money. But this drived me to learn more about markets, charts and trading.

I trade the US market (Options for swings & ES intraday) mostly the afternoon session. Now I feel, that is time to overwight trading and reduce my IT job.

I'm glad to be a member of this fantastic board and hope, that I can learn more to be a trader for living and quit my job

regards Mumo

I didn't realize this thread existed until MWinfrey mentioned it. So here I am, albeit a tad late.

I'm a shy and private person who is uncomfortable talking about herself.

So, who is the real Sarah Krantz? That's up to you to find out if you care.

Anyway, I hope I can add some value to this community.

Hello gang,
have been trading for a few years now. Looking to move to Forex.

Looking for a resource where I can learn about programming in ToS.

Looks like a great place to learn other things as well!

Hello, Im from the USA but i travel in asia a lot and get great european session trading times because of that! I have been trading since 2004 in the fxmarket. I started out news trading, now I am primarily a tech analysis guy but I factor in a lot of news events and fundies. I have managed a clients account now for about 1 year and I have traded my own account profitabily for 2 years now.

I hope to learn more each day and pick up so great tools and advice to continue this journey, while passing along any advice or experience I can.

Kind Regards,

New Guy!

I'm a new trader, been learning for about a year now. Currently going through the Open Trader course, which is AMAZING. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. Totally worth the cost. Anyway, I'm looking to start trading the E-mini S&P 500 in the next year. I'm currently trying to figure out where to get affordable, quality volume profile charts so I can start trading. That's about it!

Home at last

Hello Mike and all,

After having bought and used about every single trading software on the planet and still being able to deplete my account being very stubborn not having a plan or not following it I finally landed on Ninjatrader and Mike's forum. Bought Bloodhound a few weeks ago and started to learn, play and hopefully trade based upon it. Having done some Python programming in the past I now want to take up programming in C# to make even better use of Ninjatrader. Bloodhound uses graphical programming ofcourse which gives me a headstart, or so I assume. I'm determined to make it as a trader. I really am. Have to too. One has to stay focused. Hope to learn and possibly share.
