Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 100,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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 don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

It is my goal to journal all of my trades with additional metrics relating to preparation and my emotional state at the time of the trade. I use Edgeonk to track these metrics for each trade.



To Start the Day

· Sleep recovery: (this is the sleep recovery retrieved from my whoop strap)

· Daily FOMO Score: (On a scale of 1 – 100 1 being the least and 100 the most of my Fear Of Missing Out on a trade, based on the Market Mind Games book by Denise Schull)


Action Items Before Trading

(My schedule requires me to perform the following items before I start trading)

* Meditate

* Review "Five Fundamental Truths" and "I am A Consistent Winner Because:" (Trading in the Zone book by Mark Douglas)

* Review and Note Today's News (Forexfactory.com)

* Review last Few days trades in Edgewonk.

* Review CL, ES, GC, 6E and any other market we are trading using weekly, daily and 30 min chart (with market profile)

* Eat Breakfast

* Debrief with Hedgeye Early Look and Macro Show notes

* Debrief with Hoag's Market Forecast @ 9:15 est https://www.facebook.com/topsteptrader/



Game Plan for Today:



Create a Game Plan for todays trading day.

Based on the Market Profile https://www.scribd.com/doc/2870633/Economics-Stocks-Commodities-Market-Profile-Basics

Determine if we are going to open in balance or out of balance and formulate a plan based on this.



Daily Review:

(perform the following after completing the trading day)

* Mark up charts and recode all trading in trading Journal with notes and comments.

* Did I follow my Schedule for today?

* Did I eat appropriately?

* Did I practice TM?

* Did I Exercise?

I am already journaling on this site so I might as well enter my journal here. If you find my efforts of value, your vote for me would be greatly appreciated!

JUST WHERE DO YOU REGISTER THE TRADING JOURNAL FOR SEPT?


Big Mike View Post
Hi guys,

Continuing in the tradition of encouraging journals on FIO, I am announcing a new Journal Challenge for September 2018.

The rules are extremely simple:

a) The contest begins September 1 and ends September 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) 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.

e) There will be three prizes awarded, based on the highest number of "Thanks Received" per the above. The first place prize is a free 150K Combine in TopstepTrader's program, a $375 value. Second place is a free 50K Combine in TopstepTrader's program, a $165 value. Third place is a free 30K Combine in TopstepTrader's program, a $150 value.

f) As we increase the number of these events, we find the need to keep it fair for everyone - so you are only eligible to win a prize in this event if you have not won any other prize within the prior 3 events on futures io. Feel free to participate in the process, but know prize eligibility will be a deciding factor in the final award process.

Thank you to @TopstepTrader for sponsoring this event. You can ask questions about their program here:
https://futures.io/vendors-product-reviews/25776-topsteptraders-michael-patak-president-ask-me-anything-ask-me-anything.html

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.

Mike

Hi,

See item (b) and (c) from the post you quoted.

Sent using the futures.io mobile app

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.

If you want
to support our community, become an Elite Member.

@4tison, I made an extremely detailed post, with diagrams, in one of the other threads where you also asked the same question.

Please click this link and read all the steps: https://futures.io/trading-reviews-vendors/25776-topsteptrader-s-michael-patak-f...hing-101.html#post690211

If anything is not clear, please ask a specific question about what part of it you need more information on.

Bob.
