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.

Hello from duke1-New Member

Hello Mike and other members.
I look forward to using the forum to gain knowledge. I did a little bit of swing trading with a small account and was able to double my money within a years time. That sounds great but I had to have a gut check and realize that although I based my trading on what I believed to be sound moves based on technical analysis, my "system" so to speak would not hold up and the money I had made was from a combination of skill and luck. I'm sure luck is always there to some extent but it can not play a major role in my trading. I must learn the correct way.
I am currently trying to save up enough capital to begin day trading and may be ready by the first of 2014. I am a blue collar worker and money does not grow on trees for me. Until then I am trying to learn as much as I can about day trading stocks. I know there is no holy grail but I can certainly learn as much as possible. Once I start I plan to ease into trading with simple goals. For instance my first goal is to be able to clear 50 dollars a day, then 100 and so on. That is the way I have always accomplished goals is by baby steps. I also have when trying to accomplish goals always asked people who are truly experts at what they do. So far most of what I have read in books and found on internet is BS or regurgetation of the same old info and people just wanting to make a quick buck. I am very impressed with this site and hope to gain some knowledge from people who are actually walking the walk instead of people who just talk a good game but can't really trade worth a flip. I'm not much at posting but rather listening and learning although I know Mike encourages participation. Thanks to everyone in advance for putting the valuable information out there on this forum so guys like me can learn.
