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

Fresh and Green


I am retired from 40 years in the computer software business. I need to return to work and as most of these jobs have been shipped to India, I decided to try on a new career. I can hear Mike's words now 'he is doomed to failure', because I am coming into this business from entirely the wrong place. Need rather than desire.
I heard about Big Mike from my readings in Ninjatrader and in Brett Steenbarger's blog. Armed with all of my tools, I am excited about this new adventure and having found this forum, very happy to be part of it. As I gain some experience I will be happy to contribute.

Great resource

After trading financial and energy futures using Excel, VBA and VB6 for nearly 15 years, I recently started exploring NT6.5 and now NT7. I just found Big Mike's Forum and the community and resources here are great! I look forward to learning and sharing.

Thanks Mike!

Futures Edge on FIO
all new members!

Superdoug, can you send me the link of where Brett's blog mentions futures.io (formerly BMT)? I couldn't find it. I'm a big fan of his and plan to ask him to host some webinars for us soon.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Mea Coopla Mike; I checked and could not find any reference to futures.io (formerly BMT) on Brett's blog. I started my education with NT forum, so it must have been there.

Hi everyone, I've been papertrading for about ten years. About 4 months ago I started to use real money. Even when I'm in a winning trade I get the jitters and get out too soon. Trading with real money is a whole different game. I trade the emini S&P.

Hello,

I got interested in fx trading one year ago, and i've been developing a script for automated trading. I'm not really interested in being a trader, I want it to be fully automated and money-making.... ))
Starting out with Metatrader, I've eventually developed a system based on Renko bars and the Ichimoku indikator, combined with some regression analysis. I've put the system to work on a demo account, and it currently trades with a small profit over time.
However, I haven't been able to optimise one single parameter in this rather complex setup, because it's just not possible to optimise renko bars in Metatrader. Thus, there should be potential for much better results, and I decided to get more professional about all this, and find a better platform to run the system with optimised parameters.
After some evaluations I decided to go for Multicharts, and now learning Easylanguage and starting to port the system from mq4.
Stumbled over this forum because of the threads discussing the pros and cons of NT and MC, and to my great delight also some recent disussions about optimising with renko bars!
... so, thanks to Mike for starting this forum!
