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.

How are your fills with 5 contracts?

So far so good. I credit a lot of that with my broker, Optimus. I traded 10 contracts in Cl with them a few years ago for a very short period of time and got great fills.. even with that much. Then I did some dumb things..lost quite a bit of money..and decided to start over at 1 contract untill I really felt I knew what I was doing. Hopefully things will go better this time as I work my way back up.

When trading futures, your fills are on a centralized marketplace and should not vary from one broker to another. The only thing that changes on the broker side would be the risk assessment prior to allowing the order to be submitted to the exchange, and it is usually measured in nanoseconds.

You can credit the broker for service, you can even credit them for data if they have their own FCM gateway server, but you shouldn't credit them for fills. This isn't Forex!

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 wasn't aware of that. I did have some horrible experiences with a couple of Forex brokers..regarding fills, now that you mention it.

Amongst the many things that differentiate one broker from another, the choice of software offered by a broker for use by its account holders cannot be underestimated. Yes the time taken to perform a pre-trade risk assessment is generally insignificant, but it is the total time taken by the software from receipt of an order to its release to the exchange that is often the difference between profit and loss.

Traders who maintain accounts with brokers who are sensitive to the differences in software and offer the use of the faster platforms may find that they do, in fact, get better fills.

There is a risk of loss in futures trading. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.

Week 2-day 4 -recap


This is the final recap for my two week experiment in transparency. It was a little bit stressful..knowing I was going to "put myself out there" and show these videos of my recorded sessions. But I wanted to stick to my commitment to post them..regardless if I failed or succeeded.
