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.

-- Big Mike

Welcome tadesheel

Another new guy

Hi Everyone,

I discovered futures four months ago after trading ETFs for several years. The shorter time frame forced upon me by the highly leveraged futures has been challenging to say the least. Getting a bead on market direction has been like herding cats. Nonetheless I managed to make $7000 in two weeks once I got the hang of it.

I read Market Wizards, took Adam Grimes course and thought I was doing well until the markets shifted. I lost everything I made and then some and have now switched to SIM. Luckily I did not wipe my account, unluckily I have no job now so the brokerage account has become my safety net until I find a job. Meanwhile, I am trading SIM everyday, doing very badly and happy it's not real money at present. I do like Big Mike's suggestion to trade ETFs if not enough Capital so I may do that as well once I see something good.

I question myself for wanting to learn a trade with a 95% failure rate, but I feel like I can do it given enough time. I watch the price action for hours each day and hope at some point it will tell me something good. Thanks for this site!

Hi

Hi,

I've been planning on contributing to this site and helping other traders after I become a 'big success.' It hasn't happened yet, but I have gotten a lot better...I'm losing money more slowly. I figure that I do have some knowledge to contribute. I am focused on day trading the 1 minute and 5 minute NQ Nasdaq100 futures. I would say my major rules for beginners are common advice...always use and honor your stops, and find a way to define the trend then only trade with the trend.
