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 everybody

Hello everybody,

I just joined this forum because I actually tracked some posts here for about two years now and I finally decided to become a member. And in case I also use it very frequently, which I intend to do, I will think about becoming an Elite Member. But now about me:

I am a 25 year old MSc Finance student and currently located in Oxford, but actually I live in Dortmund. I started trading 2012 when I got into a trading game of cmc markets, but I took it seriously two years ago. I started practicing C# programming after lectures and I worked on it six hours a day for one year. A year ago I downloaded NinjaTrader and became addicted. Well, it literally became kind of my job and I absorbed tons of literature, which of course was also beneficial for my grades at the university.

Some might think that one or two years is nothing and I agree, but I was very "lucky" that my boyfriend already went through all the shitty stuff like loosing 200k, being too emotional and thinking to know it better than the market. He pushed me and taught me which mistakes to avoid and we finally developed some really profitable algorithms for Futures Trading (Cocoa, FDAX). We now intend to further diversify our trading with US T-Bills, German Bonds, Oil, S&P and some others and in case it works fine we think about studying Maths/Statistics to further improve our technical skills. Some of our approaches include Swing Trading, but we actually try everything NinjaTrader has to offer and don't adapt existing strategies.

That is why I registered because I am pretty sure I can learn from all of you and of course I will do my best to support some very beginners that might struggle with NinjaTrader.

Thanks

Sydney

Nothing fancy. Just keeping an eye on where big money is hanging out and where it's moving to.

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
I just got an email and it was a personal message from a member who asked me a question. but it seems I can not reply to the question via a personal message request to me until I first get 5 posts. and I cant seem to find a place to make posts.

thank god this will be my 3rd post and only 7 to go to reach 10

this is crazy. too much. I need places to talk to people. at elite trader there are threads that give an opportunity to do that. they ask newbies questions about trading. the questions are pretty good. but it gives an opportunity to get involved on the web site.

I am not trading either and I highly recommend that people do not trade until they absolutely know without a shadow of a doubt that they are ready. then just put a toe into the water.

Hello


Hi, new to futures trading. have traded US stocks long and short (trend/swing) & some options (covered calls) for past 10 years as an extension to 15 years of buy and hope. also some forex management because I work overseas from my native Australia. Currently between jobs (the commodities rout is deep!) so am looking for ways to get better returns on my savings while I wait it out.

looking forward to learning more. reading investopedia, (love that site) & starting with eminis.
