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.

How to start a trading business?
I'm eager to know how to start a trading business because it interest me much but I don't want to risk my money for nothing.

Some of my friends are engaging in trading business but they don't want to share how they started the business.

Perhaps reading an introductory book such as "The Complete Guide to Building a Successful Trading Business" by Paul King might be a good place to start.

Sorry can't post a link to Amazon as my post count is too low

Futures Edge on FIO
Are you asking how to incorporate the operation you already have as a trader/investor or are you asking how to go about developing the business model to actually begin the process of operations?
