Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • 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.

OK recommend some useful books then.......(im just starting out)

answer the question too.....

Just type the word 'books' into the Search field on the futures.io (formerly BMT) front page top right, it will automagically give you a great list of links to books to get started with. Just pick a few that appeal, if you don't get on with them start over till you find some that you can relate to better.

Better still watch a futures.io (formerly BMT) seminar or read a couple of new threads from start to finish every day. Do that for the whole of next year and see how you're getting on. Now that sounds crap doesn't it? Now try for the next ten years.

My original question was of course rhetorical, but we are all really trying to help you and we do indeed understand your frustration, the problem is that you don't seem to understand ours. This game ain't easy, ever. I've been learning for 13 years so far and frankly I still know just a little bit past bugger all. You have to think for yourself, start working out what fits with your ways of thinking and what suits your personality, and be prepared to keep learning forever.

Stick at it but don't expect overnight miracles. There are hundreds of ways of making it in the markets but the only one that will work in the end has to be yours.

Travel Well

It seems like you just want answers, without doing any work. That will not get you far.

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

I'd skip all this advise BF.

If I were you I'd KISS!

This is all you need:
A 5 minute chart.
Stochastic indicator,
MACD,
RSI,
Keltner Channels.
Buy when all the indicators at the bottom, and sell when they are at the top.

This is the system the pro's dont want you to know about.

See you in Monaco.

Beat me to it.

The OP needs to realize he is expecting everything to be handed to him, then when people take time to do so he is discounting and discarding most of it.

The better solution is for OP to learn to think for himself, do his own homework and draw his own conclusions through his research, analysis, statistics and real experiences.

If the OP is actually serious, then the next step is to not make any more posts for a while during which time he starts learning based on all the recommendations made to him. He could then start a real trading journal, not a thread where he is asking lots of questions, but instead a thread where he is documenting his trading path in a way that he can learn from it as it evolves.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I was told by a good friend I was wasting my time on your thread.

Panda,
You have the patience of a saint. I can't believe you are still responding either. However, your friend is wrong. Budfox may not be listening, but others are! Really great stuff.

This thread really should be in the beginners section. There is so much great advice and learning lessons in this thread.

I've been accused of many things but being patient and a nice guy were never mentioned.
