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.

Hey Everyone!

After much time lurking around, I felt it was okay to poke my head out a little.

I used to work as a licensed auto mechanic, but that job just wasn't for me. I have a wide variety of experiences in many disciplines. After spending some time to think about re-training into something else, there just wasn't anything that really appealed to me. After some encouragement from a friend, I started to learn about trading.

I attended webinars endlessly, and after a while I settled down and studied the methodology of Dr. Barry Burns from Top Dog Trading. After paper trading it for a while, I went live. I made some gains, had some losses. Overall I learnt some good stuff from it, but I am at a standstill with continuing his methods. It's just a bit difficult to try out his stuff when it is hard to reach him to ask questions for clarity.

So that's where I am at! I'm loving the trading, just gotta find the right way to go again.
