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.

Welcome to the forum. I am a new visitor also. I am looking for someone to guide me to a way to trade safely and successfully. Are you using any system to make your trades?

Thank you sir. Am actually a day old in futures.io (formerly BMT)... but in terms of trading ... this is my 4th year. Started out in FX , moved to trading metals and finally settled on Stock Indexes....

I think am in the same boat as you... the trading successfully part... my journey has been marked with so many ups and downs...but i feel am almost getting into the element..

My strategy for now that i have been testing for the last 6 months.. is basically.. identify potential support and resistance levels at the market open of FDAX and scalp 25 points off the trend. I do this at the Open of London Session and the at the End of NY session.

Once i get 25pts i call it at day...

Long time lurker...

Hello everyone!

I'm a long time lurker, first time poster. I love to read but I thought it was about time that I started to ask questions as well. After all the only silly question is the one that goes unasked and I have often let my questions go unasked. Nevertheless, I'm ready to change that and hopefully I can actually contribute something to this great community as well as continue greedily taking all I can. I've been interested in the financial markets since I turned 18 and was able to open my first trading account. Since then I have been on many journeys over the last 5 years and continued to learn each time. It is at this time that I'm really starting to take my trading a little more seriously and treat it like a business rather than a side hobby. I look forward to getting to interact with everyone and continue my journey!

Thanks,

Bythai.

Yoyo

Since I'm blocked out of everywhere I would like to engage until I rack up posts, from what I understand, let's rack up posts.

I'm interested in specific topics to e-minis and options. Used to day trade many moons ago and getting back into it now. Back in the day, I used to stick to volatility plays and it seems like that has only improved.

Great Forum! Thank you!

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
Thank you Mike for making this Forum, it's just what I was looking for.

I am a Software Engineer and I have been in the trading arena for many years. I worked for an Options Software company for a few years. But I'm focused on Forex now. I wrote my own "Forex Robot Trader" and that is what I use for all my trading. It does pretty good but I'm always looking for ways to improve my strategy.

This Forum is perfect, everyone sharing ideas in a positive manner!

Thanks again,
Scott

I have been trying to find a reliable method for about 30 years. So far I have failed. How do you scalp the trend?

Hello everyone! Newbie here....

Just wanted to drop in say hello and also look forward to joining the group and doing all I can to further discussions and learn the futures trading business. I am currently a meat & poultry buyer for a large food company and have always had an interest in carrying a step further in learning the grain markets.
So be prepared for dumb questions!

Thank you!

Futures Neophyte

I have traded stocks amateurishly for a decade. That is a euphemism for portfolio extermination. I am retired and have the time to spend to hopefully improve my performance. I am positive I have cast my net too widely in the past and have decided to focus on futures, specifically e-minis. I have knowledge approaching zero on the subject of e-minis, so no preconceived notions to replace or bad trading habits to overcome. If anyone has any advice as to how to use this website to best effect in pursuit of my education objective, I am listening, and will be most appreciative. Here is your opportunity to be able to say "I knew him when he couldn't even spell futures, and I thought him everything he knows about them." Better hurry though. At my age I don't even buy green bananas anymore.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
