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


I am glad to be here, although I might have less to share and a lot to learn from all of you.

Has anyone figured what causes an overfill in an automated strategy?

Thank you all, and most especially to Big Mike.

Introduction

i started out on thinkorswim, spent a couple of years there and outgrew the platform/decided i wanted to get serious from the dev perspective. i have experience across the futures complex; most of my focus has been in US bonds (mid/long duration), energies, and grains. i started doing progressively more development and have decided to tackle automation and proper dev work. currently i am developing in TT as i build out my C# skills. i plan to maintain portability as i move along. i look forward to interacting with the countless bright folks here; already i've seen lots of great stuff.

Glad to be here

Hello everyone,

my history seems to be about the same as many on here. I blew up one account before I took any classes or learned anything, expensive mistake that I am determined not to allow to happen again. I have less than a years worth of experience in trading. I trade only futures (due to 24 hour availability), not sure this is the best area to be trading. my ultimate goal is to be able to quit from my 9-5 day job, but getting to that is proving to be somewhat of a challenge. i am looking forward to getting familiar with this site and soaking up as much information as I can. as of now, i am trying to get a good swing trading strategy established, due to work. i am beginning to wonder if this choppy and wild market is not to conducive to a swing style. any pointers and help will be gladly accepted. i started by subscribing to numerous people and come to find that not a lot of people know what the hell they are talking about. needless to say, those subscriptions have been cancelled. also fell for the "newest and next best indicator" peddled by a lot of gurus. now, i have only a momentum indicator and view candlesticks. now, after reloading another account, i seem to be gun shy. hopefully this passes and I really think i can do this and want the flexibility that trading will allow. anyway, once again i look forward to interacting with all of you.

Hello

Hi Everyone

I am very new to trading. I started trading stocks with a local stock trading app in Sep 15 and I have been absorbing as much information as I can. My path has led me to day trading and E-mini futures and so here I am.
