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.

I believe I did get the indicators in the download sections in big mikes, if you cant find them, try to pm me the names that you need and I can get them to you......on my phone now but will be at a computer by morning.

The way I was trading before did not use the current indicator you see me using now, if you need one of the other indicators I will send it to you....I have just been on the quest to make things simpler and this is just what I have come up with....I am also going for 4-6 ticks if I can just for a paycheck

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
Thursdays trades, ended up down 1 tick plus commissions.....My first trade was a mistake, I did not wait for the back ground color to plot showing it meet my trading rules and ended in a loss. The rest of the trades are shown and some reasons behind my thinking. I should not have been trading today...A younger brother was in an accident sunday, got word last night that today we as a family have to decide on pulling life support....one of the hardest choices you can make, but its the best for his kids and family.....He will be missed!

Might not be around for a few days.....

Friday


Thanks for the nice thoughts on my brother at this trying time.....good news late yesterday, some improvement so we are again in a holding pattern for a few days...still praying.....thanks again

I know it might seem weird I'm trading with all this going on, truth is this is taking my mind off things if only for a little while each day and giving me some normalcy...I only traded 1 contract today because of the situation but I was able to focus and not make any mistakes today....I ended up +9 ticks and I showed a few more things I'm watching on the price action.....

I also took screen shots to show I was trading real cash today, some of the fills would look like I was in simm. I don,t know if trading only 1 helped in this or not, that being said I'm still not a big fish by any means....6 is currently big for me....lol...someday I will get larger trades, consistency means more to me now than more money, trading my plan will get me to where I want to be.

Thanks Again and enjoy life and your weekend!
