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.

FIO Video Journal Challenge - April 2017 (over $2,000 in prizes)

Hi guys,

Continuing in the tradition of encouraging journals on FIO, I am announcing a new Journal contest for April 2017 -- with a twist: This is a Video Journal challenge featuring NinjaTrader!

This challenge will feature a large number of video posts. These recorded videos should feature your trading and not that of anyone else. You can record video of your charts, your setups, your real-time trades, your research/review, or other parts of your process.

FIO member @tturner86 created a very short demo of how-to record video for your journal:
https://futures.io/articles/trading/How-to-record-and-upload-a-video-journal

Read the above article for more information and help on creating a video journal.

If you have questions or need more help to create a video journal, ask for help in the below thread:
https://futures.io/tech-support/41835-help-creating-video-journal.html

The rules are extremely simple for this event:

a) The contest begins April 1 and ends April 30. All decisions made by futures.io are final.

b) This thread that you are reading right now will act as the repository for all journals that are entered into the contest.

c) The author of a journal can enter his/her futures.io journal into the contest by posting a link to his/her journal in this thread. Only the author of the journal can do this. Please post the link to the journal ONE TIME, AND ONE TIME ONLY in this thread.

d) In order to qualify as a NinjaTrader video journal, you need to regularly post videos of your trading (charts, setup, trades, research, review, etc) using the NinjaTrader platform. You can also make regular posts to your thread with screenshots, but a large number of your posts need to contain Video Journals in order to qualify.

e) Members of futures.io will cast their votes for the best journals by using the "Thanks" button on the post that the journal author has made in this very thread. This is why it is very important the author of the journal make only one post, because only one post will be used to count the total number of "Thanks Received" in this thread, and that is how the winners will be decided. Members can vote for as many separate journals as they want by following the same procedure.

f) There will be three prizes awarded, based on the highest number of "Thanks Received" per the above. The prizes are (1) Lifetime license to NinjaTrader, and (2) 1-year annual license to NinjaTrader. I will post the full details of the NinjaTrader License prizes below.

Thank you to @NinjaTrader for sponsoring this event. You can find NinjaTrader on their website here:
https://ninjatrader.com

My goal with these contests is to encourage the journaling process, as I firmly believe the more you participate in the journal process, the better trader you will become.

If anyone has any questions, please let me know. This thread will remain closed to posts until April 1st (contest start date).
