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.

Very cool. Welcome. I trade /YM index futures and seem to be doing ok with my setups thus far. Take a look at my journal you can see some examples and charts that i use to identity opportunities.

Hi everyone,

i was a former forex trader but in my country (Belgium) its now illegal to trade in forex.
I was after 2 years of trading getting proffitable.
Everyday i was learning.
And then Binary options, CFD's and forex was banned in my country.
That was a blow to me because i loved it and ok my acount grew to about 1000€ it wasnt that big but i was compounding and i was dreaming to get a pro in a few years. Not with 1K offcourse but this was me practicing with real money.

I was searching for a new product to trade. Stocks is to expensive (comissions,...) And someone told me about futures.
I am papertrading them now to learn because there are somewhat more things to think about when you are trading them instead of forex.

I am doing good in paper trading and now i am saving up to start live.
I hope to learn from others and maybe i can learn other people some things (who knows )
I have a lot of questions so see you on the forum.

Gunther

Hello,

My name is Quinn and I'm a 20 year old college student. I'm studying computer science/engineering and I'm interested in developing my software skills to create trading systems. My goal is to learn enough to quit my future job early and trade full time. I've been sim trading for 6 months now and have seen good results. Excited to check out the forum.

Howdy everybody,

Before last November, I did not even know what a futures contract was or that they even existed. I had just began my engineering management masters program when a friend from school found the ES and became very very attuned to reading that market, and many others at the same time. He obviously got me interested and I had to learn more about it. One of the first resources I was pointed to was Kewltech's blog. He really seems to have some great insight into how to technically trade. I started a free demo account through TDAmeritrade and learned to navigate ThinkOrSwim. Although I don't have much experience with other platforms, it seems to be a fantastic program for charting. It's pretty user friendly. I got to where I was paper trading most mornings before class. Due to not following my trading rules, my account would go back and forth making and losing money, but losing a little more often than making. I wanted to make trading my full time career right out of school, but between getting a great offer at a solid company and getting married right after graduation, I decided to actually go to work using my degrees I had just spent 4 years completing. I still plan to trade for a living sooner than later as I found analyzing data was not quite as glamorous as my company made it out to be. I prefer to be my own boss someday and am very excited to begin paper trading again now that I have my feet under me at my new job and with my recent marriage. It is nice to meet you all and I hope I can add some value to this forum as we all share knowledge.

Hola Everyone!


Hello Everybody,

I have been trading for a little more than a year. Initially I traded options on stocks and quickly learned how much I had to learn. I have made money and I have lost money, now I am more focused on getting consistent.

I traded NQ sim for 7 months and am now trading 1 contract NQ and ES. Still learning and working on getting better.

I trade off of charts, 3 minute and 9 minute and Renko charts to smooth out direction. I've been looking at order flow and wondering if it is a better way to go over the "lagging" indicators I currently use.

I use eSignal and am considering NinjaTrader.
