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.

One of my Marines would do that on trips he would take home, but that was a decade ago. He'd buy $800 worth of lotto tickets and almost always came away with $1500 or more, bankrolling his trips.

Many thanks to the site and all the contributors. Great source of info.

As if the lottery isn't a bad enough tax on dumb poor people to have people with 500k liquid gaming the lottery.
I wish the lottery would just be done away with.
