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

Intro

I am a new trader but not new to trading. Have read some awesome stuff already in this forum, I would like to thank those who take the time to share so much. My experience of traders (in a corporate environment) is that they are rather self-centred and anyone who shares stuff is either a bad trader or trying to fool you. I can see here already that perhaps my perceptions need to be altered. I look forward to sharing stuff in the future as my journey as a trader continues.

Thanks

Thanks for taking the time to share knowledge about something that so seldom is revealed genuinely.

Succeeding in trading is a goal I wish to accomplish.

So far I got in with real money and got whipped by the market... now I'm looking to get back into paper trading and get to the point where I have the mind set and discipline to come out successful trader.

Good luck to all ...

Hi everyone


I only found this forum because I am caught up in the Mirus/Zenfire fun and games, like many others, and was looking for something or someone to give me some insight as to what was going on, and what to do about it! Well I am glad I found you! I will stay with this forum now with all the myriad of opinions, common sense, and the comradship that comes from like minded people.
I have been trading for about 3 years with varying degrees of success and some idiotic decisions which, when I look back, really make me cringe! Started with Emini S&P, now I prefer Russell 2000 and, rightly or wrongly, have just opted to leave Mirus/Zenfire and go with AMP/CQG, the Mirus change does not suit me. Doesn't mean I won't go back if they ever get Zenfire up and running again, I was very satisfied with them. Let's see how we get on at AMP.

Onward and upward!!

This thread is for introductions only.

There is an existing thread on the Mirus issue here:

Mike

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)
