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.

Hi Guys from Newbie Laura

Hi everyone,

Me... I'm a wife and daughter of a 3rd grader. I've been interested in day trading for about 5 years and just pulled the trigger. (New Years Rez). I Opened up an account w Ninjatrader brokerage. I am interested in the emini markets, and I sim-traded for a couple weeks and did really well. I started live trading last monday and was up and down a couple hundred bucks and finished down $212 yesterday. I am not looking to get rich, I would just like to make some additional household income. I'm reading a ton of material and watching youtube vids. I am a sponge for info right now. As a beginning trader I'm aware that I am vulnerable to lots of stuff and I am just trying to avoid as many mistakes as possible. I want to weed out as many bad decisions as I can. LOL! Here is what I've been looking into.

1. What are the best book/books/videos/articles to understanding Charts? (support, resistance, best indicators)?
2. I would like to sit in on a great live trade room. Which ones are legit and best? (currently doing a couple free trials w Rios tradelab and viewmytrades.com)

I appreciate any help I can get from you guys that have been doing this for a while. What advice would you give to yourself if you could go back? haha.

Thanks and God Bless,
Laura

Greetings!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Alex. I'm an active futures trader. Before futures I used to trade forex, however I found that the E-Mini S&P500 more appealing and profitable for me when it comes to trading intraday. I joined the forum to because one should never stop learning and sharing.

Regards

Intoduction


I bought my first stock over 50 years ago, but only have become a serious trader when I began nearing retirement a few years ago. I've explored a variety of trading strategies, but now that I actually am retired I'm shifting more towards income investing.

I currently live in San Francisco but am moving to sunnier Palm Springs.

Hi Laura,

I would suggest watching the webinars on this site, with (IMO) particular attention to Al Brooks, FT 71, Linda Bradford Raschke, and of course, Big Mike.

Regarding psychology: Dr.Brett Steenbarger & Denise Shull.

Best of luck to you.

Brand new to trading

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
Hello all. I am brand new to this. I just started buying dividend stocks for long term investment last November and wanted to learn how to start making money now in the market. Not just building a long term portfolio. I asked for more information from a commercial on CNBC and was introduced to the emini and buying and selling futures contracts. The education offered was around $1,000/mo or $5,000 for a year. That seemed very expensive and a big amount to overcome every month. I have been watching you tube videos for the past 3 days and trying to learn as much as I can about indicators and even the basics. I haven't signed up as an Elite member yet, but I am considering it. Still trying to consider if this is something that I have time to devote learning enough to do it. I am a Realtor that does ok but interested in a way to make additional income.
Thank you for having a place to ask questions. It seems that all of the youtube videos are trying to sell a system of charts and indicators.
Thank you,
cumberlandtrader

Hi

Hi, I've been trading on and off since 10 years - mostly losing because of unidirectional thinking. This site and discussion are amazing and better than reading books. Looking forward to learn and share. Thank you.

Regards,
BG
