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.

Wenn Du also meinst das man mit deutscher Ueberheblichkeit weit kommt dann sei es Dir gegoennt. Deine Quantitaet an Posts sagt eben nix ueber Deine Qualitaet aus. Das zeigt schon mal Deine geistig bescheidene Struktur. Ich weiss wer Du bist und kann daher sehr gut einschaetzen was Du von Dir gibst ...

Ist schon gut so Laber weiter.

I have no real bone to pick in this fight - don't trade the DAX and it is not on my immediate radar. However, when trading CFDs you always have to be aware of counterparty risk - Counterparty Risk when Trading CFDs.

With the blow-up of LTCM, financial institutions realised the counterparty risks were much bigger than previously anticipated and regulatory intervention was needed to avoid a larger "meltdown". Lehman again highlighted the counterparty risk that traders can be exposed to. Imagine having a TRS (total return swap - same thing as CFD but used by hedge funds) to hedge your portfolio with Lehman (your prime broker) and then suddenly Lehman can't perform on its obligations. Suddenly your nice hedge stopped working and your only option is legal action against an insolvent company while your fund just got exposed to the full market drawdown.

Not saying that trading regulated markets reduces that risk - PFG and MFG were both regulated and clients still lost money. However, at least your broker won't go bankrupt because his counterparty can't perform.

Edit: should also add - at least your broker also won't go bankrupt because he failed to offload his counterparty exposure (where the broker takes the other side of the CFD), i.e. all of his clients short the market, leaving him with huge losses if the markets fall like in the event of 24 August.

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)

Exactly.If that is still too big,then there is still option - Eurostoxx Sector's Futures.There is also 5 Euro's tick and less volatility then Dax or even Eurostoxx.Stoxx banks futures is number 3 in Eurex index futures so it is also liquid.
