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 everyone, I am an energy futures trader. Been trading calendar spreads and cracks for 6 years, grateful to be able to make a living doing it. I am here to contribute and join a community of traders! I'll probably be posting mostly in the commodity futures forum.

Hi Everyone


I am new trading and starting on the (long) quest for knowledge. Hopefully joining this network of other like minded individuals will speed up the learning curve and the journey. Been trading option up until now (mostly selling out of the money options) and wish to broaden my horizons. Look forward to interacting with you all.

hello from YM trader

I'm stozalor. I trade the YM - dow jones front month futures contract. I love to trade but I only trade from 9:30am EST for about an hour and a half. I have been trading for about 8 years. Im usually short term. Anyone else trade the same contract during the same timeframe?
Thank you,

Hi everyone,

i am Sebastian, a 23 year old student of economics based in Hanover, Germany. ( So please pardon my english )

I have switched over from forex and cfds and all that stuff to options swing trading for the most part and i try to learn the basics of orderflow in the DOM, but it requires a lot of time and so i canīt do this as often as i would like to do.

The general approach of my options trading is based on statistics and the law of great numbers. (thanks to the tastytrade guys)

So iīm looking forward to improve my skills by participating in this forum!

Regards, Sebastian

Thank You


I have been actively trading for several years, but damn it, still haven't found the holy grail. If someone could possibly create an indicator that looks into the future by 3 to 5 minutes, it would be greatly appreciated...

Seriously though, the (formerly BMT) community is an invaluable resource, and the people who contribute and ask for nothing in return (Fat Tails, Dorschden, Gomi, VVHG, FT71, Linda Raschke, Mack and of course Mike, and so so many others) have made such a difference in not only how I view the market, but how I view myself. These folks have made me a better, more well rounded person, and the efficiency with which I now trade is something that I have never experienced before.

If you are new here, as I was just a few months ago, step one in becoming a better trader (in my humble opinion)... an elite membership. The key to trading successfully is knowing yourself first, knowledge is key. Keep your money in your pocket with regard to the vendor that makes a stack of promises, get on (formerly BMT) and READ!!! There is so much information here, it is staggering. Best of luck to all!
