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.

-- Big Mike

A few changes to the forum tonight

- Added VIP Download section for VIP members, so now downloads are easy to navigate and don't have to be kept in threads as a last resort.

- Deleted Ensign and MetaTrader section within Downloads. Also deleted NinjaTrader Code Snippets in Downloads. No one was sharing, these were just taking up space. As a side note, the TradeStation and Multicharts sections could use some TLC, so I ask for your help to populate those with good content.

- Added NinjaTrader Workspaces and Chart Templates section to Downloads, and moved relevant uploads out of the Miscellaneous section and into the new section.

- Removed the Announcements forum category. Merged the six posts into the Suggestions and Feedback forum, and then renamed that forum to "Feedback and Announcements". Works well and saves some screen real-estate, simplifying a rarely used area of the forum.

- Changed the purpose of "Journals and Daily Charts" forum to now also include "Tape Reading". This means in the coming days, the moderators will be re-categorizing threads from General Discussion and moving them into the "Journals/Daily Charts/Tape Reading" category. This will free up General for things other than posts to-do with journaling or tape reading or a bunch of daily charts!

Some other stuff behind the scenes, for mods etc... btw, if you are interested in becoming a Moderator on futures.io (formerly BMT) use the Contact Us link bottom right and let me know.


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.
