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

Newbie Trader looking to get back to trading

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
Hi

I've traded Forex a few years ago, didn't lose my shirt, but wasn't very profitable either. I really didn't have much of a trading strategy back then, and risk management.... well... not so much. I dabbled in options on futures contracts. I remember taking a long call on Lean Hogs for the first couple of days my position was very profitable, my option was up $600. But, what I failed to grasp is knowing when to exit a trade is often more important than knowing when to get into a trade as a few days later I was down about $200. I remember calling my broker that day to ask how my position was doing. He was silent for quite a few seconds (which I knew wasn't a good sign) before informing me my position was down $300, or in other words my option was nearly worthless. $300 was a lot of money to lose for me, I freaked out and ended up closing my position. In truth I should've never taken that trade.

I've studied Floyd Upperman's IMPA trade strategies using the COT data. I did fine demo trading, but never opened a live trading account as I didn't have enough capital. I was pretty active on Floyd Upperman's forum back then. Shortly before I cancelled my subscription to Floyd Upperman's website, I remember a reply Floyd sent me on a post I made on his forum. While I don't remember verbatim what he said, he strongly encouraged me not to give up, and said that I had a deep passion and aptitude for trading.

With that in mind, I'm hoping Futures IO will re-kindle that passion for trading, and I hope I can learn to be a better trader from this site.

How do you use this site anyway

I am a member and want to learn and exchange information but I cant even figure out how to send a message on here. I am not stupid so if someone can help me I would appreciate it. This is very frustrating.

New to forum

Hello Traders,

I just registered and wanted to introduce myself. I have been trading for just over a year now. I like to trade CL and ES but I have taken trades on most of the high Volume products. My account has slowly been drifting south and I have been trying to find a way to change that.
I started out trading options on the ETF's in 2003 until I blew up. Tried again in 2008 and same thing. Then I went to the Online Trading Academy for a full course load. After having finished all my classes it feels like it was just an introduction. I have been trading with a plan but I'm still not creating much profit for myself so now I am SIM trading until I find a strategy that is good for me.

Happy trading
Ray

Hello everyone, I'm a new member who has 5+ years trading futures down at the CME/CBOT. Left my firm a little over a year ago and am looking to trade a bit from home. My experience is with the S+P, CL, NG, and a few others.

Happy trading!
