Apologies for my late post in replying since i joined. I have been wrapped up testing the Jigsaw DOM.
As way of an introduction, i would classify myself as an "experienced Newbie" after 9 months trying everything from Technical Analysis to Market Profile to eventually the Depth of Market.
Started trading FOREX and lost monies but have eventually moved over to trade the US Treasuries (primarily the 10 Year Note) using Jigsaw DOM via NinjaTrader.
The webinars I have attended with futures.io have been great and a BIG BIG thank you Mike for the vision of setting up the community. At times newbie traders get overwhelmed with all the information with books, training seminars and systems but as soon as they take ownership of their Trading Journey then it makes a difference.
Looking forward to participating with the community
I was recently forced out of an LLC where I was an executive and minority shareholder.
My vision is to self-direct all my investments and retirement funds; as well as generating income by disciplined well thought out methodology.
One of my accounts will be for futures trading and other more aggressive stock swing purchases. I have accounts with TOS and Vanguard. Recently, I purchased futures trading software from Champion Setups- MFT Pro. I am also a student of Hubert Senters, and a follower of Ichimoku cloud trend trading.
Currently, I am working on crafting a trading plan as well as a business plan. It would be great if I can obtain some input from other members who have similar experiences. I'm thankful I ran across this blog by accident, and look forward to learning from more experienced traders who may be willing to help.
Thanks for your warm welcome,

First of all Thanks for the forum and site, glad I found it when I was doing a search for how people like Dorman linked with Ninja Trader.
I'm just at the beginning phase for downloading NT. I've joined a subscription service for chart info, and they only run on NT 7 so I need to either Buy the platform or the license. I've downloaded it before but couldn't get into using it. I want to avoid that happening again.
I have been trading off and on since l 2007. When I started during the big dip and the financial crisis and BP Oil Spill it didn't go like I thought, and I blew through a bunch of money, then I started over and decided to trade options and blew through a bunch of money there. Those hard experiences taught me difficult lessons about what I could and couldn't do as a trader. After taking some time off and going back to work, I've been trading profitably for nearly a year, but I still have a long way to go towards consistency and better trade management. I trade Options, Futures, and Stocks with TDA on the ThinkOrSwim Platform. I still work a full time job at a desk as an estimator for a supply co that specializes in construction material. They understand my primary concern as a trader and do not have an issue with me running my set up at work as long as I complete what is necessary for them. I've tried to trade from home, but that wasn't as fulfilling as I expected.
Welcome Kbal experiences like many others u will get a lot of support key is to focus on what u want and to share as well depending on what u trade u can either start your own journal or be part of others
I started personally trading commodity futures back in 1991. In 2001, I founded Insignia Futures & Options, a boutique futures brokerage firms aimed at assisting and educating investors new to futures trading.
I look forward to contributing to the Futures.io forums and welcome and questions from the members.
