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.

hi everyone

I am a beginner at trading, 26 years old, started doing options and had some success but would like to learn more about futures. I work at a airline company and have contact with traders who are pretty experienced and luckily one of them became my mentor. I am looking into learning about futures for more consistent gains. any advice is welcomed.

Introduction

Hello everyone,

My background is in electrical engineering and computer science. Basically a processor guy in Silicon Valley. Have traded stocks for a few years, but not very seriously. Now I'm getting more serious about it, and just started to learn about futures. Looking forward to learning everything.

Thanks.

I trade Gold futures only . I have many years experience investing in stock. Investing thousands in trading systems/software, including NexgenT3 software on NinjaNT7 for 5 years , TOS , MT4. MY5 and did only to loose thousands more in my trading account. But I have not given up! During the past 3 year I have been studying Market Profile, trading psychology, and tape reading and participate in so many webinars . I started to implement new software using Ichimoku I have been having some Ah Ha! moments and feel I am now on the right track; but still much more to learn. I am currently trading in life using Ninja Trader. This is an exciting journey of self discovery and learning new skills and check indicators that works in day trading. I learned about your Forum through Invest To Success. I am willing to work with script coders to modify indicators that works

First Indicator is Ichimoku convertion from MT4 from Ichi360.com to NinjaNT7 and Ichimoku_mtf from MT4
with alerts of crosses of multi time frame 1 and 5 min cross can make it happen

Thanks for your forum.

thank

intro

I have multiple years experience. First as a market maker on the CBOE in 02-03, followed by a 6 year break, and then traded equity pairs for a year and eventually got into pattern recognition in 2011 mentored by Larry Pesavento. I studied the patterns for 6 months and then traded very small, until finally this year have honed my strategy to focus strictly on the forex market, and have been profitable since the revision of my strategy in 2013. My goal is to maintain consistency, which will allow me to increase my size as high as possible! I make only a few trades a week on average, and still have a day job to support my family. This arrangement helps the mental side keeping me available for what the market offers. My goal is to build my account up and size accordingly so I am able to become a full-time trader within the next few years.

Glad to be here Big Mike!

Hello!

I have been trading on and off for about 9 years now, but was more lucky than successful. I started out in stocks and had a buy and hold approach to trading. This technique offered me a few good moves just from being in the right place at the right time, but overall was a lousy (and slow) way to trade in my humble opinion.

I just recently completed about 9 months of intensive training and have been trading the E-Mini's for 3 months live now. I have only traded a few instruments like CL, NQ, 6E, ES, TF, and GC, and I am currently in a 60% profit range. My goal is to be trading full time within 3 months from now.

I joined Big Mike's because a lot of my mentors and trading friends suggested it, and I want to improve my overall trading skills so I can do this for a living. I'm looking forward to getting and sharing some great trading ideas with everyone and improving my knowledge of trading overall.

Thanks for having me!

my introduction

Hi Mike + everyone!

I am approaching system trading with Ninja and I would like to learn some programming. There is so little material about Ninjascript that I am thinking almost everyday how much easier it would be to follow mainstream EL for trade station instead....

Your forum is an invaluable help in this respect. Only sad note is that elite membership is quite expensive.

I've been a trader for over 15 years. I was one of the first day traders, then the crash in 2001 came. I still walked away from that intact and made quite a bit of money. However, I moved on into precious metals and did fairly well with that, albeit a much more slow trade. I took off stock trading for the past 4 years to concentrate on my own business because it was floundering with the economy. We seem to be back on track, so now its time to pick up from where I left off. Im expecting big things from the market in the next several months, especially in small caps, so I'm back for the time being.

Hello


Hello There,
Im excited about being here, im new to trading, new as the past year I started, I have found out, I dont know what I thought, but im here to learn in hopes of being a successful trader. I started trading the ES, I lost a 1/3 of my account, mostly by fear, I cashed out keeping the balance and am returning to the drawing board to continue to learn. Im looking forward to posts and education.

thanks Mike,

Dan
