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 Everyone

I started with stocks moved to options had some success and then got all tangled up reading to many complex strategies and started sinking not realizing I was trading entirely to often and not giving myself time for the trade to mature. I started trading weeklies any theta was literally eating my lunch. I have now read a total of six different options and futures books. Spent time in the TOS platform and hours in the on demand training module. My main focus was reading Larry Williams How I made one million dollars last year trading commodities. I took my time and really did additional readings on futures. I think I am now ready to give futures a real go since I have spent enough time training and feel pretty good about my knowledge and think it is time to go live.

Hi @saatwater63,

I am very new to trading was wondering if you might have links for the books you read and would you recommend one to start with?

I want to focus mainly on futures.

Thank You
