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.

experience vs clueless

I trades futures 15 years ago and made a fortune. Literally turned 2k into 200k in under 3 months. I had no idea what i was really doing. I was a kid. Now that i am grown up, i want to get back into trading futures but its been 15 years and now i don't know what i am doing. I need advice on where i should start. I am interested in Grains and possibly Crude Oil (considering whats going on in the m,id east) any suggestions or advice? Would surely appreciate it. I don't even have an account set up yet. Trading futures is not what it used to be.

You shouldn't learn anything, or it might interfere with your natural trading talent, which is the only explanation for your performance of 15 years ago. All you need to do is repeat that performance, even if it doesn't work out at the first try, you still have 99 tries left, and you'd still be breaking even.
