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.

6 months to start

I'm from Brazil. Not a trader yet but I'm doing my best to become one. I trade Brazilian markets when time allows it.
My trading/business plan is set a deadline to quit my job and have a second try(breakeven on the first try with just one month. Got scared) in july/2016. Until there studying a lot, simulating and backtesting my strategies.
On that second try I will day/swing trade on simulators.Go live just after have consistency or pass on combine and become funded by TST.
6 to 12 months to achieve that. If unsuccessful ... back to my daily job and save more money for a third try.

I have a budget for accomplish the task of put this business on the go, and so far I spent:

Hello everone, been here over a month and like what I see

Thanks to Big Mike and fellow traders this is one great source of information!

Just wanted to say Hello and let you know I'll be contributing as much as I can. I've been a full time trader and investor since 1982, sounds like a long time ago but it's been a lot of fun. I believe if your going to be good at something, you need to enjoy it, if you don't enjoy what your doing you'll never be good at it. I wake up every day looking forward to trading a new session, and there is always a need to learn something new.

Great place, hope to talk to as many members as possible,
I'm actually know by friends as TraderJ (wouldn't register it), so here I'm BobJ

intro to SoCal user

I have been trading on and off (much more off) for several years. I went through small accounts (2-4k) twice over the years.

Somehow I became middle aged (lower fifties), live in Southern CA., have two children (16,12) and my lovely wife.

My education was BS in Natural Science and BA in Psychology (and a year of masters Theology). I have spent most of the years since then in Real Estate flips and financial use of insurance for tax-free income purposes.

I am shocked at all the "crapola" out there that I have seen over the years. But I have always really liked Big Mike's (now as it contains real people saying what their experiences are. In this trading area, you ALMOST can't be too cynical (but I have seen folks who were).

Good luck and merry Christmas (past) to all.

Hi everyone,
Thank you for allowing me to join your community. I guess like all others here I am on a quest for knowledge, to one day become a profitable trader and to also share any positive experiences I have along the way.
