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.

Introductions......

Hey Folks,

I'm based in the UK and am pretty new to trading. I've been looking at Emini systems and working with Ninja now for about three months but have only SIM traded so far. My primary market is ES. I won't develop a secondary Market until I'm happy with this.

I discovered Big Mike's web site only a few weeks ago and found it really useful so am delighted he's decided to start a forum. Way to go Mike!

My aim is to make money consistently from ES trading, so I can give up or go part time in my day job. If what I learn and share can help others via this forum then I'd be even more pleased.

Best of luck to all.

MDM

Futures Edge on FIO
Hello everyone,

First I'd like to thank Mike for this great site!! I have been trading on and off since '84 but have since started retraining the last 5 years or so and have been trading futures starting with intermediate (days to week) term to daily and now trade the ES on an intraday basis. I aspire to trade for a living, eventually. As is often related by other traders, I can go through a good period of trading/building up an account and then lose it all. Being consistent has eluded me to this point with discipline being the main culprit.

I have gone through a few trading courses, learned other methods of trading by picking up books here and there and have gone through a few brokers and lots of trading software.

At this point, I trade the ES although I would like to find another vehicle other than the Nasdaq and Russell eminis.

I am looking forward to sharing my limited knowledge and learn from others. I think Mike has created the perfect forum for everyone.

Regards, NMTrader

Hello all,

I have been trading equities on and off for about 10 years. I started on ES futures last September, and have learned so much. I have read many books, been a part of many good rooms, and spent decent money on indicators. I just recently am starting to realize how important the mental training is when it comes to trading. I plan to focus more in this area.

I am a father of two girls, a husband to a beautiful wife (who allows me the time to spend on trading. ), and was recently let go from my job of almost 9 years.

I have known Mike since high school, and I do know that whatever Mike puts his mind to will be great, and thus I know this will be a great site for anyone who gets involved.

I look forward to sharing and also growing together with everyone on this site.

You can read my profile for more information.

Happy Trading to all!

Forex.....

Hey Sharky,

Interesting warning about Forex. I have no plans to trade Forex, only the ES. I do have a friend that is looking at Forex however, so will pass it on.

What do you mean exactly when you say 'they scam you on the pips'?

Cheers,

MDM

Forex = shady

Hi moon , what can happen is that the spread can change at any given time especially before news events . Spreads arent set and if your dealer sets a fixed spread you probably will pay a commission and spread together . You could put on a trade and pay between $10 and $75 or more per .1M .

Thanks Eric_J

Hey Eric,

Thanks for that, it makes more sense now, and I'll pass that on to my friend.

Meanwhile, I'll stick to the ES :-)

Cheers,

MDM.
