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

FIO Journal Challenge - September 2016

Congrats to @SoftSoap, @bobwest and @citikot, it is well deserved! All three of you have excellent journals that I have personally learnt a lot from.

Journaling has given me the biggest single step boost in my short trading career. It has allowed me to organise my thoughts around all aspects of being a successful trader. The discipline of thinking through every step of the trading day and putting it down in writing solidifies so many aspects of trading for me.

Other than that, reading other peoples journals and realising that you are not the only one struggling with this process, seeing how they solved certain problems and figuring out which of those solutions work for you is incredibly powerful.

Thanks FIO for an amazing community!

As an update, @NinjaTraderhas already updated my license. They were also kind enough to pro-rate my 3 month subscription and provide a refund(completely unexpected). Thanks!

I meant to mention that I have received my new license as well, as expected. Thanks, @NinjaTrader.

Bob.

I think it means that you now have a license to kill (the markets). Soft 007, Agent of soap. ?

P.S. Triclosan-free agent of soap! You won't get infected before you wash your hands of a trade!

Reading stuff like that makes me wish I picked a better name. Oh why did I have to put away the soap before I made my FIO account

Lol, no worries. I always liked the idea of softsoap. It seems a cuddly soap. Gentle, smooth. You know...soft.

Congrats @SoftSoap! Glad you won!
Thank you for also showing me your journal from another forum and introducing me to this community. (Name is itradeRisk from elsewhere) I've been sitting back reading a lot and enjoying my stay. I look forward to continuing to read your journal and following your journey.

I'm encouraged to start my own journal and document my day to day trading.

Thanks! Glad to hear you are enjoying FIO. The community is awesome and full of knowledgeable traders, and the admins do a good job of keeping trolls away.

You won't regret your decision of starting a journal!
