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

I don't know if this is the right forum, but I signed up for the elite membership and contributed the $100. When I signed in it didn't recognize me as an Elite Member, what do I need to do on my end? Thanks Ralphd

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)

Hi Mike,

I've been a struggling trader as long as I remember. I started day trading stocks in 1995 with a very limited knowledge of the market at that time. Then I took a long break from trading. Since last year I started looking into emini futures market after a good friend of mine introduced me and in a way encouraged me to learn futures market. Since then my struggle renewed and continues.

Anyway, I'm glad I bumped into this forum. I want to learn and determined to be a successful day trader. So I'm looking forward to making friends here from whom I'll learn and be a good contributor.

Thanks.
Joe

Hey all,

I've been lurking on this sub for a while but i finally decided to start posting since i tend to visit a bit more frequently.

Currently looking at ES/CL (mainly CL), generally scalping.

Kinda shitty yet never going to blow up kind of trader. More likely to lose to a thousand cuts.

Hi everyone, I'm looking into day trading as a side project till I find a new job. I look foreward to collaborating with you folks. If you have any questions on petroleum engineering I may be able to assist with that too.

Also, I am trying to see if anyone has had experience working with prop firms.

The Premium Membership is invaluable. Nothing else for $100 in this entire industry will help you so much imo.

The Elite Trading Journals have guided me on my path to achieving steady profitability.
