With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

Happy to see all the new journals lately!

Contest starts tomorrow. Sometime late tomorrow or possibly Friday I will update this thread again with a list of all the journals that I see as active. You can feel free to post links to your journal in here as well.

Tip

Remember, the futures.io (formerly BMT) members will decide the winners of the contest. So keep your journal inviting and answer questions that people ask. I also know from the past that Video journals are quite popular, so if you want to do a video journal or a post with a video in it every now and then, I highly recommend it.

You can use free software such as Camstudio (not Camtasia, which is not free) to record your screen without limitations, then upload the file to YouTube and embed the YouTube video to your post (click the word YouTube for instructions on embedding). Another option is Jing (google it) which is also free, but has a limit of 5 minutes and the videos cannot be embedded. For this reason I recommend against it, as hardly anyone will click and watch a non-embedded video.

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.

I would love to join but I'm still in the process of developing/backtesting strategies, good luck to all

Same...to be eligible can someone still working on their strategy/plan participate? Must one post actual trades taken every day, can one not take any trades on some days, or can can journal entries consist of other progress towards trading goals?

I'm not really going to say one way or the other, because the winners will be selected by members and not me. But I think that you need to be trading one way or another daily to keep the journal active, so I will leave it to other members to decide. Just create the journal and you will be included in the list of people.

I went back and checked on "Big Mike Challenge #1" (the last journal challenge) and we had about 30 journals being updated.

Will be interested to see how many we have this time around. I'll post tomorrow or so with that update and a list of them.

Here begins a journey of self-introspection

Funny how market introspection leads automatically to self-introspection

https://futures.io/trading-journals/18170-22-days-price-action-trader-shares-his-journey.html

(especially if you are in red :-) )

I look forward to enjoying this journaling.

A BIG thank you to Big Mike for taking this initiative and for everything!

(Especially Especially for hosting Al Brooks seminars - unforgettable opportunities, so I joined in from 1:30 AM to 3:30 AM from India)

Thanks, and hope to have a lot of visitors take back something of value from my postings.

Regards,
iqgod
