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

The following suggestion may or may not have been already put forward, but how about complementing the current thanks function with a bookmark function: have the ability to bookmark a specific post (in addition to threads you subscribe to), and see how many people have bookmarked that post.

One may want to thank a post for its contribution but not necessarily bookmark it, and viceversa.

This will be implemented.

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hey..


@Big Mike

Since you just posted here I thought you might see this without too much distraction. I wanted to express my gratitude for all the work you do for the forum and say that you have helped me in many ways, some that you would never imagine. You got a guy in Chicago if you ever need something. All the best to you Mike.

Dan

I can see having a thread be ignored if you have placed the thread starter on ignore. But I don't agree with ignoring other threads in their entirety really. There is already the option to ignore a particular subforum, like if you want to ignore subforums about trading platforms that don't pertain to you, or ignore foreign language threads --- you can already do that today.

Mike

I'd like to suggest this option reviewed... especially in light of the whole Al Brooks thread saga...

@xplorer, What is the Al Brooks thread saga?

A thread meant to review some Al Brooks products but that recently veered off-topic because of some passionate debate. I'd very much like to ignore the thread.

Weeellll... you could just not go there.

(And sure, it does tend to pull you in. Did me today, once again.)

Bob.

That would require self-control about annoying stuff Bob. I have done 93.89% w/l on 180 scalps since midnight, 8 large swings. It is a nothing special day. To be great is to be quite OCD sometimes.

Seriously, making a whole thread disappear would be very nice.
