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 Mike & fellow Traders

My name is Hamish & I have been trading for around 2 years having gone through the newbie route of attending seminars,opening & blowing accounts & entrusting sign up fees to would be gurus all of which have stepped me forward 2 paces and back 4. I acknowledge that to a large degree,this is my own fault through my own form of discretionary trading & lack of discipline.However,I realise that the transparency behind charts & price action is masked to a degree by such gurus and their guidance is akin to giving a learner driver dark glasses and giving him the keys..Fortunately through my own determination to find real answers,I've arrived here. Now in looking back through various books,courses and advice I've taken on board,i'm binning those dark glasses and look forward to seeing a clearer picture by sharing & learning...Thanks Hamish.

Welcome Hamish - nice to see some others from Scotland, I'm assuming of course by the name! 😃👍

No NZ..However many Scots emigrated to the South Island looking for gold (aren't we all..:~ ) ) so the connection traces all the way back to near Aviemore..I feel right at home when I go up there though.
Right now I'm concentrating on getting to grips with Order Flow...tape reading,cumulative delta,summary & reconstructed tapes,depth & sales. It's a lot to take in but used in the right way,I'm sure it can only help..How about you Trambo ?

Ah ok cool, aviemore is beautiful I know it well. Strange you should ask - I'm also just looking to start implementing order flow, been watching a lot of Jigsaw videos and looking at going down that route, time in front of a screen is an issue for me at the moment so looking to find a good way to build experience shorter term in the times I have available. I've found the Ask me anything thread on Jigsaw very helpful.

Cheers
Trambo

Hello everyone

Happy trading

Rena Trader aka Diamond setups (Renato Santos)?

Does anyone know if Rena Trader aka Diamond setups (Renato Santos) is legitimate. It is interesting that there is little information on the internet - which I take as a good sign. If he was ripping people off, I would think we would have heard about it by now. But on the other hand, it is surprising that others are not singing his praises if he is as good as he says . . . unless they want to keep the secrete to themselves?!

Please reply if you have any personal experience with him.

Thanks

Hope You are doing G.G.G.Great : )

Hi!

I did a lot of simulated trading, some real ones, trade options, now learning futures spreads.
Developing a platform to compare trader's account or portfolio P/L with a selected benchmark.

Simulated futures spread trading is going well for me on TOS, would like to get confirmation of the same results on another platform(s) and select the one for real trades. Open to discuss things...

Wishing You great positive P/Ls!

Artu

Hello everyone,

Happy to have joined here as it seems one of the more respectable forums on the web. I'm a rather new trader but hope I can make a positive contribution here moving forwards (and of course learn from the threads posted).

Thanks,
