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.

Just wanted to introduce myself. I have been lurking around the forums for a while and appreciate the solid content by many of the members here. Like many new traders I blew up my first account by over trading, emotions, not following trading plan/rules. I am making a return and will be paper trading for a bit , then will dip in using only 1 contract. Thanks,

Evan from NYC.

Introduction

Hello,
I have been registered for a while at futures.io but have never written a thread. I would like to say Hello and thank you for your acceptance. I just started with Ninjatrader and am looking to network with scripters that can help in automating the supertrend process.

I have been trading lightly with TOS but have gotten to like Ninjatrader as soon as I got the chance to configure it how I like it. Hopefully this site will assist in this advancement. I find that TOS is very buggy and stalls at times, which is not good at all when your in the middle of a trade. It also hogs up resources.

Well, hopefully I can remain accepted.

Messing around for too long..

Hello. Glad to be here.

I've been involved in the markets for long enough that it's a shame I'm not a millionaire yet from trading.

Over the last year or two I've moved over to futures and the the future seems a lot brighter now after a number of years in retail forex.

Attached you'll find an excel file that I created for real time demo trading with thinkorswim instead of opening the paper money side.

It is a bit crude, but, you can insert instruments of your choice with tick size and tick value in the box outlined on the left of the sheet.

Options symbols can be generated as well. Enjoy!

Hi

Hey guys, I am a 25 year old guy looking to learn about working the stock market so I can expand my finances. Currently I am working as a massage therapist and want to really start to use the money I am making to invest and catapult my finances.

First things first is I know there is a lot I need to learn. I plan on becoming an Elite member soon so I can chew my way through the videos and take as much knowledge in as possible and thus cut my learning curve and my chances of destroying my bank out the first time around like so many do.

If there are any videos you'd recommend for me I'd be happy to recieve that advice. Still trying to just get a grasp of this. I am working my way through several books right now including: The Intelligent Investor, Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing, Day Trading Academy (Ebook), and Surviving DayTrading. (Ebook) Looking forward to learning from all the knowledgeable members here and expanding my world of trading. Cheers.

Happy to Find this site

Hi Mike,

I am a retired Brig Gen, now running a small aviation company. I used to trade just around the dot.com plunge and paid a steep tuition in learning about the markets and controlling emotion. Time spent in my military career kept me away until now. My wife and I are restarting together and hope that and education based, crawl walk, run approach will help us to be successful.

Best to the community,
Blaine & Jeana Holt

PS. The system is blocking Jeana's account request saying that it's suspicious.

Possibly a security feature on the site to prevent multiple accounts on the same IP. @Big Mike should be able to fix that?
