Introduction

Hi Everyone,

I'm new to Futures.io. I've been trading since 2015 and have been frustrated ever since. Ha! I haven't blown through my account but I have slowly bled money. I am looking to be a consistently profitable trader. I know it will take hard work but I'm willing to put in the effort.

I'm getting frustrated with all of the trading sites offering "free" webinars only to market their classes and indicators for an obscene amount of money. I've paid $150/month for a trading room membership and haven't ever been profitable with them. I'm pretty confident that the traders on these sites aren't completely honest with their members about their actual trades and profitability.

I'm looking for an honest site for a reasonable cost to help better my trading. I found this site via a Google search and this just might be what I've been looking for. I plan on being an active member and improving my trading!! I look forward to working with all of you.

Thanks!

Baumer

For options I would highly recommend the free education at TastyWorks/TastyTrade it's not only free, it happens to be the best material available anywhere at any price. For futures it's a little more difficult as every so called expert teaches their own strategy and methodology. Best advice I can give you is don't pay for anything yet. Learn market profile, basics of technical analysis and reading price action which you can find for here as a premium member and other sites such as babypips.com free education course which is one of the best programs in existence to learn charting and established principles. After you learn all of that, if you find a room or trader you enjoy following; then and only then would I suggest purchasing a course or indicators. If you have a good charting platform(Sierra,TOS, TDAmeritrade TradeStation,NinjaTrader,Merrill edge,E-Trade, TT, MB/Ally etc) you DO NOT need to buy any software, they all include every tool you could possibly need, period! Good luck, stay nimble in your trades

Hi folks,

My name is Rick, and I am just getting into futures trading as an income supplement. Using TradeStation but only on "simulated" until I gain a better understanding of the markets and proper techniques. So far I am feeling most comfortable with currencies so may focus on them until I get a bit more experience then expand to commodities. I ordered a new desktop system that is scheduled for delivery so excited to what a faster system with three monitors will be like. Most of all I look forward to learning more from this community and contributing back my own learnings in a small way.

Hello


Hello All,
I have been studying trading strategies for ever now. Bought a number of books and courses. I have purchased some systems trading courses and plan to start some new discussions on that.

What I have concluded is that the strategy does matter - but does not supersede Money Management strategy.

I have concluded that trading Eminis match my personality.


Thanks
-Sai
