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.

Hello all. Been a trader since 1997. Had a spectacular blow-out a few years ago, and seek my return to trading after many lessons learned.

Mike thanks for the site and to everyone who contributes here.

Stumbled onto this while looking around at easylanguage stuff and finally signed up. There is a lot offered for NT but searching around for EL took me here so . . . Thanks for a nice site.

Howdy All

Hello all,

I have some experience trading stocks, and a lot of experience in losing money, but as of a few weeks ago I have been looking into day trading futures. I feel that day trading provides a lot more control over my investments and that keeping my money in the market for brief periods as opposed to the buy and hold philosophy of yester year will produce better results. I am aware of the risks associated with day trading and trading with margin, but I would rather take a loss over the course of a minute and know where I am at, than sit on a stock for 2 years to just take a loss when I had hoped for a gain. I thought I knew about finance and its markets, but I have learned more over the past 2 weeks than my previous 5 years of fooling around. My eyes have really been opened to how many people no almost nothing about this stuff, including myself and that there is a whole new financial based world for me to explore. I am fortunate enough to have a mentor in real life who trades for a living as a guide and he sent me here, and I am glad he did! Basically what I have learned thus far is, the trend is your friend, stick to your rules (like for real though) and find what works for me. I am anxious to continue learning from this forum and I hope to also contribute to it as I get my feet wet.

new from Ontario Canada


Been at this one year, am working on finding / making Ninja indicators that work.
male , middle aged, visual learner ie like charts but Support and resistance numbers are never to be neglected.
Not making a living yet to be honest.
The isolation makes this type of site really welcome to me.
in spite of the fact typing is a nuisance to me.
