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

Hello, my name is Amit. I have been trading for 5 years and I employ an adaptation of the Wyckoff method for my main strategy. Primarily trade daily charts in FX and weekly charts for stocks.

This seems like a pretty nice forum.

WTF who is banning high speed internet??

The government and system do it. access to free information is highly forbidden here so facebook ,twitter,youtube ,etc... are all blocked. they say that low speed internet is sufficient enough ! ( can you imagine a 128 kbps bandwidth that is shared between 10 persons !! )

Good Evening, Friends. I've done my bit to help get Christmas dinner going, and while waiting for the roast beast to appear in all its glory, I took a minute to sign up here. I hope to be able to learn, and to contribute; I'm a semi-retired (still doing some consulting gigs) bank FX sales and trading executive, now working with E-minis, equity options, and equities from the comfort of a home office. I do not trade FX as a retail investor, and have never been tempted to do so. Merry Christmas to those for whom that's appropriate, and best of luck to all here. I'll look forward to participating.

Wow! Thats too slow to trade in the markets. A lot of people from Iran here in Ontario. You should switch location too.

Introducing

I am not new to this site. Actually I'm a member from 1 year and a half so far, but I haven't post anythig till now. I think that new year it might be a nice timing for start posting. I work in the financial sector but more in the risk managment than in the invesment area. Late˝y I've been playing with some strategies and I've decided to put them to work. I will keep you up to date with my achievements and failures. Best regards to all.
Daniel

I am a fairly experienced trade in both the ES and CL. I had blown up four accounts ( two of them were 5 figure accounts) before I realized what I was doing wrong. I was constantly jumping from method to method never gaining consistency in anything. I have since realized that there are many ways to trade profitably as far as methods, it is a matter of just getting great at one method that makes sense to you and your individual belief system and gaining consistency within that method. I came across this site researching the School of Trade system and contemplating joining. I am still working on gaining that consistency that I seek so badly but I am working on it and having support from other successful traders will help.

Hey everyone!

First, thanks to Mike for starting this forum. Like a lot of folks who have posted before, I have had some good profits and then gave it back and blew out a couple of accounts. I hope to be able to learn from everyone in here and give back some day.
