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.

Hello everyone,

My name is Al. I've been trading for a year now learning on my own. Over the last past year I've gain a plethora of knowledge trading futures. The issue im currently having is that im an unsuccessful day trader. I join this forum to see if I could learn from others about trading. I pray I will before I blow up my account again and have to go back working a 9-5.

Thanks Mike

Thank you Mike for the forum.

I'm a ex-futures trader, in the 90s, turned software engineer.

I'm currently focused on NinjaTrader as my platform. My focus is making indicators and strategies.
Elder bars, and Mansfield Relative Strength are the two currently on my plate.

Custom interaction with non-supported APIs for data and trading will be next.

Feel free to ping me if you need any help or have suggestions for NinjaScript projects. Once I get my first items complete, and find the proper threads to post to, I'll share my work.

I thought I would post in here and introduce myself. I am fairly new to (formerly BMT) but not to trading.

Thought I would start a journal and did so.

Hello (formerly BMT) Members,

I just wanted to formally introduce myself. I've been a lurker on (formerly BMT) for a while, and have worked in the trading industry for a few years now. I originally was interested in trading equities, then progressed to currencies, and now have settled on Futures instruments primarily.

I look forward to learning and contributing!

I am interested in algorithmic trading. I have a number of non-useful beliefs which I intend to replace with something more useful - here are two of them:
1) It's very difficult to develop a winning trading strategy that fits me
2) I am here to read and ask above all (and less so to contribute) as my experience is so limited
You may notice as I am making progress.

Thanks for reading these few lines
