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 All

Hi,
Read a lot of info on this forum and it's saved me getting into trouble. I appreciate all the posts and thank Big Mike for creating a place where people seeking the truth in trading can get help.

I have lost money from trading for myself, buying mutual funds, and with friends buying into IPO's.

I have learned no one cares about my money more than me so I have to take responsibility for it.

I have been learning candle stick patterns from Steve Bigalow ( I have never bought anything from him, or do I subscribe to his trade room etc etc) There is a lot of free info by him on the net.

I have been sim trading the TF and want to learn more before going live.

I am hoping to gain knowledge from this forum and contribute.

All the best.

How are you going to learn?

Futures Edge on FIO
Thank you for sharing your situation and experience. I see posts similar to this on a regular basis.

Trading is a (serious) profession so the question is "How do people learn other professions?". For example a pilot or a surgeon. Do you think they join on line communities and read other people's comments? Well they might as part of or after taking serious education and trading. How would like you to go on a jet where the pilot has sim flown and read free information? Same for surgery?

Please, everyone, do not get me wrong. Mike's Trading Forum is great for sharing of (specific) ideas, however it is no substitute for (formal) education and training.

Now, here is the real problem. Where do you get 'real' training? Unlike pilots and doctors, I have not found any similar training institutions. There are dozens that are the equivalent of "Learn to fly in one week or even one month". There are none that take you through the disciplined equivalent of colleges or universities.

So now that I have been so negative, but I hope realistic, the question is "How do you become a successful trader?". There are dozens/hundreds of books which will answer that question (some of which I suggest you read) but remember that reading a book on how to ride a bike will not make you a good bike rider, but hopefully it will make it less painful. Learning to trade is hard but if you don't know how you are going to learn it will be even harder and potentially fatal.

I am not yet a successful trader and I read these posts and write responses once in a while to help me. If it helps others that's a bonus. What I got out of my own post this time is in the paragraph above "How are you going to learn?".

I hope to start to answer that question in another post.

I wanna be a Billionaire

Hi Guys and Gals

I joined this forum to sell two pieces of software I recently purchased that I no longer use. They are OFA full suite and Algo Ninja Orderflow tools.

Can someone please tell me how and were I can offer them for sale (at a deep discount).

Thank You.

NinjaTrader

Who uses NinjaTrader to trade e-mini futures? I use it and use Mirus Futures as a broker/data-provider. Which indicators from NinjaTrader to you find the most useful?

Happy to join the community

First off, I want to thank Mike for a great job of moderating my webinar yesterday. I'm new to the community and look forward to participating. In a nutshell, my approach to trading psychology is to identify what I do right in markets and turn those strengths into best practices and ultimately into replicable, robust best processes. My approach to trading is a hybrid of quantitative and discretionary decision making, with most trades on the day timeframe. I've traded since the late 1970s and the one thing I've learned is that I'm always learning. I look forward to sharing with the community, as both teacher and student.

Brett

New Trader!


Hey everyone,

I've never traded before but looking to learn and start trading when I feel comfortable. I'm glad I found this site before dropping thousands of dollars on a course.

My goals here are to absorb as much knowledge as I can prior to trading (specifically Emini's).

Look forward to meeting some of you!

-Mike
