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.

Hi I'm Marco from Italy,
I've become interested in automated trading and I've been developing some algorithms to see what can be done, I found this site searching for info.
I'm a total noob regarding trading, but I'm willing to study!

Futures Trading Beginner

Hello Mike... Thanks for the site. I like the positive atmosphere of this forum.

I have been trading futures since the spring of 2015. I had some great initial success but then some big losses. I have no illusions about "quitting my day job," but I hope to keep learning and refining my method to be able to produce a secondary income stream down the road.

Howdy folks,

Intraday futures trading part-time off and on about 5 years, usually early mornings Pacific time..

Been getting better at it, but it's been a lonely journey.

Making an effort here to break out of the shell and participate.

Hi all !

My name is Christoph iam now 28 years old and from Germany, near Frankfurt.
Iam casual trading now since 11 years but never got the time for doing it fulltime or more than 3 hours a day.
Now i want to make a change because iam employed only half-part time and want to trade the other 50%.
My vision is a more growing account than before.

I tradet the most of my time stocks, successful but not that "awesome" profitable.

Made my best trade with Nokia - bought them in 2012, because the offered their last chance to stay life - the Lumia phone. This phone runs out of stock in China in a few weeks and Nokia cant produce like they want to buy!
I bought the share at 1,63€ in November 2012. The Stock growth till march to 3,40€ - then Microsoft offered then final hit and want to merge with Nokia.
The stock jumped to 5,50 and i did a trade which i cant copy so easy in future i guess.

This allows me to open an account at IB and spend some money in Webinars and some other education.
Now i want also join a community to meet other traders virtual and stick and maybe trade sometimes together.

So far and massive success,

Newbie from BC Canada reporting in.

Two steps forward, one step back which seems on par with y'all that are beginning. Love the psych forums!

My head is full in an energized way, so I must be in the right forums.
