I explored futures trading about 3 years ago. I took the advice to practice on the sim or a live demo feed for a few weeks realizing I couldn't consistently come out ahead and couldn't put in the real time I needed. This year I have a plan to learn more about automating strategies to drive in the emotionless discipline that trading effectively needs. My goal is to figure out how do develop strategies, how to evolve strategies and start trading real money later this summer if I hit the milestones I want. I figure I might start with European market futures so I can play in the morning before work. Eventual goal is to migrate to full-time if I can pull it off.
Currently using NinjaTrader7/8. Brushing off my old coding skills with some indicator and strategy development.
My name is Francesco,
I'm an engineer and I love caving.
I eventually got into futures.io I'm trying to learn and improve my trading skills, since I'm going to trade with more attention in the future (I've blown off an account implementing the wrong, emotional, strategies).
I'm spending some months to prepare myself for a second chance and hope to take advantage of your contributes and to give mine to the forum.
Hi traders , I'm touzi from Morocco,I have been trading forex mainly eurusd for a while and I felt something was missed ,the price alone was not enough for me, of course it was the volume ,thats why I moved to the futures market , price and volume gives to me a better view and good reading of the market .
look forward to learn a lot and hopefully give something back.
I have been actively trading for the last 10 years with mediocre success. Previously used Tradestation but in the past week moved to NinjaTrader. I like what I see so far. Many of the threads I was reading on NT lead me to this site. Looking forward to participating in the discussions and becoming a better trader.
Hello everyone from the sunshine state. I started day trading in Apr 2015 without any knowledge with 70K. I had what's called beginners luck, because at one tome I had 90K in my portfolio. Then, I started to take more risks and lost most of it. I have about 20K and still hanging to dear life with investments in UGAZ and TVIX. I went to a one day seminar and I talked to an instructor, and he recommended I switch to futures trading. I've been doing some on-line research and I came to this page. Hopefully I'm home. S and P 500 caught my attention, and I want learn everything about how to trade. I'm looking for an online platform because in Scottrade I cannot trade futures. My goal is recover at least half of my loss, and to make $200 daily trading futures.
