Welcome to

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.

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

As far as I am concerned, I prefer manual trading.
I could use a tool that would check some variables and filter situations but I do not like having a robot trading.

Definite auto trade if can program or have your strategy programmed. Simply said I go sip Mint Juleps and let the machine perfectly carry out my commands. Only time I really look at is if trade triggers. I get alerted on my phone and will keep an eye on things while active in market. Staring at screen all day no thanks. There are other reasons but this alone is enough to consider it.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

It takes the same amount of discipline to trade automation as it takes discretionary.
I cant write a big post about it, but I would end it,nevertheless, withe the same statement above.

PM with any questions about optimusfutures (800) 771-6748 (561) 367 8686. THERE IS A SUBSTANTIAL RISK OF LOSS IN FUTURES TRADING.
