Hello Traders,

I have traded stocks and Forex. I think this site is amazing and I have been reading lots of stuff here without even registering. I would like to trade ES and have been on a demo with AMP for the last 1 month.

Hello Everyone

I'm new to all of this. Ive been "trying" to trade stocks for about 4 yrs. with not a lot of success . I just read some books and opened an account and ran smack into the phycology of it all and made one mistake after another all along trying to juggle trading with my day job. its not working I'm getting worse at both. My interest in futures is many but the fact they trade 24hrs a day and I can do it at home separate from my job is a big plus. My main goal right now is to learn RIGHT, and PRACTICE RIGHT and avoid all the bad habits Ive acquired at this point.. I would sure appreciate any helpful tips to help me structure this goal.. Thank you

introducing myself

HI, I plan trade to futures sometimes in near future, I came across this site by accident to be frank with everyone, but I have a good feeling about being a member of it already. I have been trading forex for several years and enjoying it. I have engineering background therefore I have been able to develop some indicators that help me with my trading as well. I am always open to learning more and find trading very exciting.

Study and learn. I recommend finding a style that fits your personality and time frames, perhaps swing trading or day trading the 24 hour futures markets.
Finding a style that fits you and works is the key in my opinion. You have to be comfortable with the risk and how the system or method comforts you. Strange word, comfort but you have to believe and feel right with what you trade and how you trade it in order to move ahead.
Good luck!

Hi everyone

I'm a complete beginner, started a couple months ago on CFDs, so far didn't blow my account

The forum was recommended by my friend and I decided to try it out. I am open to learning and criticism

Intro

Hi Everyone-

Introducing myself as I've been a fan of futures.io for a few months now and thought I'd join.

I've been trading full-time for about a year and as of the last two weeks or so, I am confident in saying that I've finally become profitable.

I scalp for ticks and very small swings / ranges - I primarily use Sierra Chart and a lot of my own software (mostly Python). I spent most of my first few months building a lot of machine learning (Scikit - numpy - pandas etc.) software, to no avail. It wasn't until I decided to stare at the DOM for hours that I really started to understand what was happening.

Hello everyone

Been reading this forum off and on for about a month and decided to create an account because a lot of the attachments weren't visible unless I signed up.

Here's a quick story you all might find interesting. I got into stocks for the first time 4 months ago. By reading forums like this and watching videos on youtube, I taught myself enough to feel comfortable trading futures. Started on TOS paper trading and was averaging about 2k a session (about 30 minutes) using 4 contracts at a time. I've had just 2 losing days so far, $700 one day and 4k the other. No excuses but I wouldn't count one of those days personally. Just about ready to trade live and thinking about going with either CQG Q or Tradovate. Looking to clear at least $300 a day in profits to start and then work my way up from there.
