Hello from AndrewW

Hello Mike and fellow traders,

I'm currently working on a Combine with TopStep Trader. I basically trade ES, GC and CL and I use the Order flow Analytics software to help me find my entries and exits.

Cheers for now,
AndrewW

Introduction

Hi Traders,

I began trading futures in 1995 and had to use the phone to place my orders then. I got my first computer in 1998 and at that time it was the fastest one available a whopping 333 MHz. TS was the only software available then so that is what I used. I used to think that it was all about indicators or thinking that I knew what the market had to do next but that was a big mistake and I paid for it with my accounts. At this point I try to let the market show me what it wants to do and then go with it. I watch order flow to confirm my decisions. I am happy to be part of the Futures.io community.

New dude


Hello,
I have been trading futures for about 2 years. Partially retired and essentially trading full time.
I really love the action and want to be more successful. Emini ES is what I am currently trading but kinda wished I
had selected something else since I am having so much trouble. I have always been a sales/people person and extremely emotional. I find this gets me into a lot of trouble. How can I fix this? Do I need to look at auto trading?

We aren't supposed to reply to posts on this thread. So this will be quick: Yes, on the Auto-Trading.

Introduction

Hello everyone,
I'm Alberto from Italy, I'm following the futures markets from some time, and I'm now involved in the self learning process, doing some paper trading, and planning to start trading live sometime in 2016.
I'm focused mainly on FDAX, ES and 6E contracts.

Thank you Mike and all contributors for this great community.

Best Regards.
