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

Hi All!

Hi all.. I am new as well!

The fact this is my first post although I have been a member since 2010 and my name itself should tell you how bad my
beginning has been! I started with different approach two years ago.. focusing a lot on futures volume, studying, studying, losing, losing... breaking even, breaking even.. and here I am.

I left my job in UBS London 1 week ago to trade full time and I am now relocating with my wife to Barcelona.

See you around!
David

Introduction

Hello all,

I mainly trade CL these days, but have spent years in various products and securities. Also, I mostly trade intraday, but will swing positions at more rare extremes. I look forward to spending some time here on the site and sharing. I've heard of BMT through the years, but never checked it out until recently.

Cheers!

A recent and new biginner to the forum


Hi everyone:

I am so delighted to become a member of this forum, because I am confident that I can learn a lot from all of you. I have a small trading account which experienced many losses this year is now reduced to less than 5% of what I started with early this year. I trade only options (calls, puts, debit and credit spreads) on stocks and ETFs. I have Thinkorswim platform and I am still learning to use its many powerful features. Would greatly appreciate any help in growing the leftover of my trading capital step by step and slowly. I learned that it does not take much time to lose most of your money, but how it is hard to get to where you were just a few month ago and it is a very hard and steep climb back. Can somebody point me how to avoid losses in credit spread premium selling trades? This is what I am not focusing on at this time so that small premiums sold with credit spreads can grow over time. Many thanks to all those who will help me in the future.

Hey

Hi Everyone,

I found this forum as I was looking for help using R for backtesting. I've been trading for a while and I too have had my share of losses. It seems like a good group and I hope to learn from all of you and to contribute what I can.

Cheers,
L

Ichimoku

Hi Big Mike and everyone,

I have just started learning Ichimoku cloud and was searching for this indicator for ninja platform. That let me to this wonderful site. I have read some of the threads and have found them very useful, and, hopefully I will be able to elevate my trading to a higher level through Ichimoku.

Thanks to the developers who made this indicator for the ninja platform available.

Hello everyone


Hello everyone,

I am a fairly new trader. I've been "attempting" to learn trading for the past year and a half (or so). Some good trades, some bad. The one thing that I have figured out, is that trading is a never ending learning experience. Hence the reason for joining. Futures.io seems to be a great resource for traders. Thanks, I look forward to contributing when/where I can.
