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

Hello,

I've been self-employed for about 3 years, now, and have learned that nothing is very secure. In order to try and avoid having all of my eggs in one basket, I've begun studying trading. I've watched lots of youtube videos, and was ready to pay for one of the training programs when somebody directed me to this forum. There are enough posts on here about how training programs and pricey proprietary indicators are not cost-effective that I've kept myself from spending money to get a "head start". It seems like I may just have to dig in and read and listen and learn and sim trade until I can wrap my brain around things like price action and volume. I am interested in some of the predictive stuff out there (though the forum debates whether it's really predictive) - things that look at past time and price movements and use them to forecast time windows and S/R lines that can be used to guide trades.

I would love to add to the dialogue here someday, but at the moment all I have to contribute are questions. Hopefully at some point in the future I'll be able to answer some other people's questions as well

Thanks

Welcome, we all came from similar background. Self study, try on SIM, testing on personal trading style etc. This is a journey of trading. All the best to you.
cheers.

Hi Everyone,

Another beginner here, fed up with what is on TV and trying to be constructive with his time.
I stumbled into trading about 6months ago and have since become consumed/boarder line addicted.
Reading and learning constantly, it is volume Profile that really speaks to me and I am glad to have found a place where it speaks to others as well.
Look forward to learning from and contributing to the community

Hello DK86,
Welcome. This is a good place for knowledge sharing and learn from senior member.

Hello everyone,

I am a lawyer, but I decided to take a break from law and maybe quit it permanently. I have been trading (very) small time every now and then with mixed results for a couple of years.

I am now looking into it more seriously now, but mostly sticking to a simulated trading for the time being and trying to remember what exactly it was that I had been doing right/wrong.

Hi Mike, Thanks for the Add

I started on the floor of the CME in 1992, started trading in 1996, and lost my feel for the markets a few years ago when the algos took over so I quit. "If you can't beat em, join em" so I learned how to program algos through visual programming and do that for a living now.

I followed a link to this forum about an online class I was/am teaching, wanted to post a thank you to the commenters, and so here I am.

I wanted to join because of the absolute straight-talk I saw by the forum members, whose assessments of the class were not just pertinent and accurate, but entirely no-nonsense and fair. I love when there's no hidden agenda or angle. I get great advice on forums about my car, so why not my career?

Apparently I can't reply to that thread because I've never posted before, so here ends my 1st...

Jim

Greetings all,

Trading, speculation, and investing has been a hobby of mine for a long time, became hooked with books by Larry Williams, and Market Wizards.
I am always looking to learn more and become more proficient at Trading with learning more knowledge and more importantly, harmonizing and implementing my own inner "way" so to speak.

Glad to be here, I trade part time, hold down a full time job in the Medical Field.
