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.

-- Big Mike

Hi all,

Been following the markets for decades. Read many books, spent quite a bit on newsletter subscriptions, courses and made a few stock/option trades here and there but have never really been committed to trading.

I have recently been following the work of Trisha @ Easy-Emini trades. I plan on learning/adapting her methodologies to trade the NQ and YM contracts.

Pleased to join the forum and look forward to learning how to be a successful trader.

Hello

Hi all. I'm new to the forum. I'm excited to learn and share here. 5 years experience, but still learning to get consistent. On my trading wall I have a sign that says I'm going to be wrong a lot, but I will not lose large. I will survive and absolutely destroy the winners that come my way. Be patient. Be confident. Be smart
Glad to be here.

oh and I'm trading NinjaTrader7 focused on Futures.

Hello!


I've had an unrelenting curiosity about markets for ever since I can remember. There is something so gripping about trying to find the answer to what's moving a particular market or how markets will discount the outcome of an unknown event or even just engaging in the constant soul-searching required to decide whether your thesis is still correct. It all drives me, excites me and challenges me! I'm enthralled by performing the research, structuring the trade, being correct - or wrong and having to adjust on the fly, and ultimately making money!

I timed the November 2014 oil short damn-near perfectly! I mean luck could not have been more exactly on my side, my put position was even quoted in the FT! This occurred in tandem with some really successful calls on ECB QE and shorting Euro. The success and trading profits were earned rather quickly - despite working full-time as a coverage banker and trading after-hours and on my phone, and it went to my head a bit faster than would be ideal. Subsequent to these successes I had two personal crises pop up in my life. Sorting them out and fighting the Spring 2015 rise in oil was a very expensive and demoralizing endeavor. My fund lost >75% of its value and Draghi's more recent balk in expanded QE in December about leveled me out (+150k give/take). I'm back with a clearer mind, a renewed sense of purpose and a stronger discipline for risk management and "my system." I'm looking forward to meeting some like-minded folks, debating ideas, and learning!

A quick hello

HI,

I am new here, but been in demo for about 5 years now. Recently moved to the futures market, used to be in Forex.
Don't really have much to say, except ready to learn.

Hi all,

Hi Mike and all,

I'm self employed mainly doing work for events. Most of my income comes from being a corporate host.

I've always been interested in making money from trading and finally took tangible steps 4 months ago. I'm determined to make this my bread and butter so I'm ready to rumble.

Glad to be here!

Been trading for a year or 2, started with stocks and options, some frustration and lost money but have found a home in the futures market. For whatever reason I find it much more interesting than the former, although I still play options a little.

After tons of reading and browsing it is apparent this is one of the best sites out there for futures traders. Focused on the futures trading and no noise, BS, and chatter of so many of the other places. Looking forward to hanging out and being a part of it!

Jon

Cool, I am in the process of funding a new AMP account and planning on using TT - moving over from TOS for futures trading. I'm sure I will be bugging you!
