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

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!

Hi,
try sierra charts, about 25/30usd a month, rly nothing compared to the OpenTrader course :-) Cant send you PM atm..not enough posts.

Glad to be here


I have been trading equities and options for a number of years and have started dabbling in futures, specifically ES. Seems to be the ideal trading vehicle, if one exists.

Was Googling for some advice on the best futures broker and found this forum. Have spent the past couple of days reading it and decided to (1) join, and (2) call Matt/Optimus about opening a new account.

I like the attitude of constructive environment, as there are plenty of boards out there for somebody to be a jerk. Just looking for a place to find answers to simple questions and will gladly reciprocate if I am in a position to do so.

Thank you

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

introduction from a struggling trader

Hello everyone in this fantastic community, I am a 49 ,businesman, 4 kids, las year I dedicated full time to trading with my goal to increase my wealth and work less, and sale the company (Info. Sec. and Privacy consultancy)
I have started trading fulltime since april2012, thinking I can grow my savings easily !and I jumped in a crazy way(with my todays point of view) , thinking I could make it.
But not. I made (everything x 2) all the bad habits, errors, and horrors, hiper leverage, try to trade Indexes, Currencies and GC, CL, DAX and more. I blown up 90% of my account . I was trying stocks, options, futures, swing trading, DT. I have read a lot of books, seeing webinars, hearing a lot of people, suscribing a lot of crap, expend a lot of money in capital and in comisions overtrading, try to find the way, but it is more difficult than I thought.
I have realized the importance of the mind,impulses inside me, then I focused on the new paradigm of trading (opposite the world of business) and focus on my selfcontrol, also I struggling also to find something that work for me.
I like this new universe of real traders in futures.io (formerly BMT) and really want to say thanks to everybody.


thanks
alejo
