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

New to BMT

Hi all,
I am not new to trading, having entered into this some 10 yrs ago. I used to swing trade on the SPI200 but that burnt me after a while and i blew up my account. Same old story...been looking for a system that makes consistent profits but seem to get burnt purchasing systems that are totally useless and the only one making money are the sellers of these crap and useless systems.
I am a member now of CFRN and they are performing very well. Michael is a great guy and you see him trade live for 2 hours a day and can if you so wish mimic his trades (Futures - Gold, oil, Russell, Nat Gas, Soybeans and more) So he is very diverse and his method does not change with any market. I however have not made money as sometimes I choose not to take the same trades as Michael so it is my own undoing not that of CFRN. The thing Michael does is because he is actually educating you on a system he takes every trade that is thrown at him. The idea is that each of us make $100 on one contract a day and once account reaches different levels you simply increase contracts to improve the income generated. It is by far the only place I have been where you see it happen in front of you and nothing is hidden. He shows his DOM not all the time as screen real estate is limited but he does drag it back and forth to show you his entry and stops.
I just need to have more confidence to replicate his results.
I did look at DTS but feel this is a very expensive system and i am not sure if it performs as well as suggested so always looking for other systems to see what gels with me.

Nice being here on this forum

Hi there

I hope that the people on this forum are willing to share their winning strategies. Most people on other forums are reluctant to share winning strategies and what they know makes a good trader.

thanks

Interesting, I had heard of CFRN. But I thought they were just a radio show with general financial advice. I had no idea they had a daily day-trading room. And it seems updated videos and logs.

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)

Hi Big Mike and all Traders!!!!

I have been trading for a while with a system i developed to beat the system lol. But one day i decided to show off. Guess what? it finally failed causing a huge draw down that took me 10 months to manage back to breakeven. I learned alot during the 10 month period. In fact i am a totally different trader. Trading is all in our head 100 percent of it. Master yourself to Master the world not just trading. The ancient words KNOW THY SELF. and you will find all the answers. I love Trading and i hope i can trade until the AI takes over and we go flat. Peace Love to all my fellow traders even if you are on the other side of my trades i still Love you! By the way anyone use occulous(VR Headset) for trading yet? I finally found a Trading site that i like!!! Thanks Guys very good information from all of you. Keep on Trading.
