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

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.

Hello,

I'm new to forum but not trading. I'm mostly an options and futures trader of ES but also like to follow interest rates, swap spreads and currencies although I do not trade the later. Hope to be able to share some knowledge as well as learn some new stuff.

Cheers,

The Guppy

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.

Hi everyone!
Like most day traders, I blew up my account a couple times and lost enough money to make most grown men weep. After I regrouped I started trading with common sense and with control of my emotions.

Hello Futures.io 'fam'!
I am happy to be joining the 'fam'. My story is probably similar to a lot of yours (which is why I use a different name on this site to maintain some degree of privacy). Here is a list that I'm sure will resonate with most of you:
+ I'm an entrepreneur at heart
+ Love science and math - degree in engineering
+ Have grown totally frustrated with Corporate America
+ I want to use my life and skills to make a difference
+ But to do that I still need to pay a mortgage, eat, etc.......
+ So I'm looking to make my living as a DayTrader
+ For obvious reasons this is a scary endeavor so I can really appreciate (and need) a family of like-minded souls
+ I have also tried this a couple times in the past and have blown up a couple of accounts (let's just say more than 2)
+ But like a moth drawn to the flame - my deep need for independence keeps bringing me back
+ But I also have to admit there is something in my nature that loves the 'science' part of DayTrading - the mental stimulation and challenge. As well as the deeply entrepreneurial aspect.
+ So here I am again. I have run across Futures.io in the past and I think even joined but I can't find the previous UID
+ Like most of you, I tend to research things very thoroughly and I share your passion for 'getting to the bottom' of things
+ One of the things that I see as I look around this time - is that the trading technology has really advanced (but so has the dangers with algos, HFT's etc.)
I'm looking forward to being a good 'kid brother'.
Wish me well as I do for you.
Best,
Ankhtep
