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.

New Here

I am new here. Found this place because it has code for older, less popular indicators that I use in my system trading.
My motto for systems is "lack of innovation is my primary strength".

Yes I have a trailer, a 27 year old 26 foot long Coors can look alike. Slowly working on upgrading it to a Jetsons futuristic interior.

Hello, thanks, glad to meet

Hello and thanks Big Mike for sharing your early experiences. I too have lost all my money before, then regrouped also, as I'll bet countless others have.

Now I'm more focused, and more determined than ever, but of course the fear of repeating the past always haunts, in the back of my mind.

Working on finalizing my trading system and on acquiring as much worthwhile knowledge as I can, and the indicators, videos, info and support here are greatly appreciated.

Take care,

Howdy


Hi futures.io (formerly BMT),

Been a part-time retailtrader for a good 10 years now. started in Options, moved to futures, then forex, and back to futs again.
Have not blown my account yet, unlike Big Mike and lots of others, but being overcautious keeps me out of too many trades and thus has me slaving away for the bossman instead of daytrading from home, which still remains the ultimate goal.
Never had a sizeable account available, which also makes it pretty hard to operate the option/future markets.

Over the years have read through lots of forumthreads all over the web. Tried all kinds of other people's strategies, basically done the whole routine we all go through, funny how that works.

For the last year have the strategy sorted, now it's just tweaks to the tools and environment, and downsizing the emotions while upsizing the account...

Tweaking the tools is what got me to futures.io (formerly BMT), looking for solutions to NinjaTrader scripts. Found some, so that makes this already a fab forum and going by all the positive comments towards futures.io (formerly BMT) out there in social "trading" world, it's much more then that.

Thanks Big Mike.

Hello

Hi All,

I am new to futures.io (formerly BMT) and would like to thank Mike for providing this platform for us all to share and learn from each other.

I have been trading the forex market for a few years now and have recently started to gain some interest in the ES futures. Hope to be able to contribute to this community in due course.

Thanks.

Hi futures.io (formerly BMT),

A brief history about me. I'm from Spain and i've been working in my trading system for about a year. Now that i've blown up two small accounts (you can't be good at this until you've blow up at least two accounts!) , i feel ready for the next step. I hope to share my ideas with the rest of you in this forum.

Hello all

Hey everybody, good to be here

I am totally new to trading, its something that peaked my interest. a couple of months ago decided to join an online school for trading. Didn't see too many results from it even though i put in a good time and effort into it. Then I checked out some reviews about it, and found one here that warned people about it. Kinda sorry I didn't check it out earlier . I guess that's my first lesson, of the trading world, trust your gut and not a too good to be true story.

If anybody can help give me some direction, i'd appreciate it very much

thanks

A start to posting

Hi everybody,

My story is simple. I studied trading, reading the classic books, and soon started to paper trade.
From that point I quickly moved into trading my initial account, and I realized that it is a totally different beast. From this, I learned much about trader psychology.

I post articles and thought that my input here might be appreciated. I originally stumbled upon the forum over a year ago and enjoyed what it offered.
