Been reading lots of posts here on futures.io (formerly BMT) for some time. Seems like Google likes putting futures.io (formerly BMT) at the top of the rankings when search terms are related to "trading". Nice going Mike!! Anyway, I decided to join here and perhaps get some education and some questions answered -- maybe even offer some advice or suggestion.
I've been sim trading ES since 2009 and haven't really "got it" yet. Seems like my learned set-ups get bunked for often than not -- so I will continue to look for my trading strategy.
I´ve been trading equity futures for almost one year. I´m focused on E-mini S&P 500 as well Mini-Dow and Mini Nasdaq. My approach is based on Market and Volume Profile and I think futures.io (formerly BMT) is one of the best sites for novice, inter and pro futures traders. I hope my contributions will be useful for the community.
Futures (day YM and yen) trader Info about options
So I began trading in about 1998 when Ken Roberts sent me his method.
Didn't know "indicators" existed. Since then I ran into Ryan Watts and
use a part of his methodology to scalp YM and the Yen. I had a blowout
a few years ago and am trying to get back on the horse. I find that the best
thing to watch is channels and breakouts.
But came here to learn options. I need to know where the tools and information
to trade these are. Like to find options to trade, what instruments (stocks?) how
to find/compare/sift through them?
At this time I can't find all that.
Thanks very much. Looking forward to making some friends..

I've been trying to find my way in these markets for a few years now. Futures trading has recently grabbed my attention and I couldn't be more excited to begin this journey. I'm quite happy I was able to find a community of traders such as this, and I look forward to learning a bit of something from everyone.
