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.

Moving up

Hi All,

Moving up from retail forex (with MT4), to Dukascopy (jForex) and now professionally to LMAX with Multicharts and/or Protrader PTMC.

As trading becomes more and more profitable, demands for broker and software also get higher.

Now i'm trying to get a grip on Multicharts, which is pretty awsome for a Raw range bar & Volume trader. Need some help now and then, hope i'll find it here. In return, i also will share my experience as a recently started professional on indices.

Finally my apologies for my limited English. I'm from The Netherlands so not a native speaker.

Ciao.

Hi Everyone!

Over the last years I read my books on trading and have decided to try the trading platforms for simulation.
I'm interested in forex and futures and have spent quite some time to understand these products.
I'm also interested in good indicators and crypto currencies (bitcoin, ethereum...)
Have a good day!

Finding an affordable workable system with a discernable edge


Right now if I find the holy grail of trading I probably wouldn't know it.
Probably change to a more promising system within a week or so.
Sigh.
The search goes on
Maybe will find some light here.

Trading is a craft, not a secret code you can crack. Learn it the hard way, and you might even succeed.

As the market morphs

Hi All,

New to the forum....been watching the markets since Aug 2015...developed a number of strategies around a very volatile market only to watch them transition into what we are currently seeing prior to taking my strategies live. As a greenhorn trader I didn't realize that the current low volatile market is the typical market, so...back to the ole drawing board...watching the eb and flow of the new market (new to me anyway) and developing ideas for strategies to fit this particular style market. Good times! Anyway! I hope to make some long lasting trading pals through this forum in time! And of course, I also aspire to become a successful trader

Happy Trading!

Hi Mike,

I'm a complete novice to futures. I have traded stocks and options for a few years. After expensive market lessons I now mainly trade SPY & SPX options.

I'm a student of Richard Wyckoff and WD Gann. I'm learning how to trade uncluttered charts based on at least a 3 minute chart looking for the Trend and using Supply and Demand areas.

Hi, Mike.
I'm a retired computer consultant, went to a 7-day class at Online Trading Academy, interested in futures. I have tradestation, will simulate until successful or I grow too tired of it all. This is my 4th week of simulation, still trying to find a good entry strategy and money/risk plan that doesn't stop out too quickly but is affordable.

I'm losing more often than not on 4-6 trades per day.

I've been playing with strategies, have ordered a course on Easylanguage.

I'm currently looking for Easylanguage code on setting up OCO bracket orders in order to have more control on what is generated. I'm aware of the Buy / Sell type functions available, and if necessary will develop using them. Was hoping someone had already worked it out and tested it.
