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.

Hi Folks!

My name is Ray, and I felt I better put in a welcome message before the forum scolds me about being here so long and not posting a message ;-)

I have been trading for over 30 years as well as being a programmer for over 30 years as well. So as far as trading and programs, I can pretty much say, "Been there, Done that". I am retired now and have a bit of time on my hands. I will shortly actually start to share some goodies that I have and perhaps some that I am currently working on. Darn, the forum doesn't have best indicator/whatever for 2015 or 2016... Oh well, I guess we will have to see

Have a Profitable Day!
Ray

Introduction

Hi everybody,

I'm an industrial engineer working in Spain, as many of you I have a decent job that I like and that is reasonably well paid BUT I have the feeling I'm not a free man, my main reason to be a trader is not trying to be rich, by a boat and this kind of things, my main reason is to try to be free, to work for my own, to manage my time, etc.

I have been trading some periods of time during the last 2 years, I haven't lost all the money in my trading account but I had the security that if I continued trading the same way I would lost all the money in the account, that's why since 6 months ago I started studying and trying to achieve a more "scientific" approach, I'm quite happy with my progress at the moment but I know I still have a long way to walk.

I'm willing to share knowledge and experience with you guys!

Me voila

Hi Guys!

I am from France and have never traded before (almost never as my timid attemps to make money in the middle of 2008 swept away by the great sub-prime crisis)

For one year, I have been reading various books on finance, investements, tradings and differents quantitative and statistical methods.

Soon I will jump in trading full time with a small account to learn and will be participating to discussions in order to more motivated and involved.

That's all for the moment.

Hi Everyone

Futures Edge on FIO
Hi Everyone, I'm so glad to have found this site. I just joined elite and now I want to introduce myself. I was a former day trader in the time period 2000 to 2004 and blew out all my accounts. I've read that in a few threads so I'm glad I'm not the only one. In any case, I took a much needed hiatus to repair the family and get back on my feet. Now, I'm ready to get back into trading with a fresh new outlook and better attitude.

I've thoroughly enjoyed reading many of the journals. They give me hope that I can do this. I've read about many different strategies and I can see that many of them can work, but the strategy has to be paired with the personality.

So, I'm in the learning and research phase. I'm also at the stage of information overload (but in a good way) and now I'm trying to sort through how best to accomplish my goals. So, what are my goals? I want to get good enough through practice that I can enter the TopStep trader combine and eventually get funded. I want to get good enough so that I can afford to quit my regular job and devote full time to trading.

I look forward to reading more of the journals. Thanks for letting me be a member of this community.

hi and thank you. I'm looking to trade OSE Nikkei minis mainly, since the old team is letting me trade through their gate way for level3 access.

Im not sure who trades that on this fourm so you will have to do a search.

Hey! Welcome to the forum. However, this is not the correct place to ask this question.

That way you will get answers
