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.

Resist the urge to touch if you should happen to see a blue-ringed octopus. The creature is only the size of a golf ball but contains enough poison to kill 26 humans. You may not even feel the bite, but the neurotoxins released into your bloodstream will eventually cause numbness, muscle weakness, respiratory failure, and death.

eeek! horrible little creature.

i think those guys really ham it up though. honestly, it all gets a bit harry potter. bernanke's going to be he-who-cannot-be-named soon, lol. the reality is nobody knows wth to do! i don't really think it's his fault or anyone in particular - just kind of a cultural failing of all of us to face up to reality, utter the terrible truth, oh, we totally screwed up, we need to start over. words which will never be uttered by anyone in charge. it's all somebody else's fault, mr chairman i do not recall, i was on vacation, the cat ate it..like in that appalling mf testimony today. it's all going to be ridiculous little graphs and estimations and projections and blah blah blah until 1)something totally unexpected happens, changing things for the good or 2) the debt goes out of control and things start to collapse. hoping for outcome #1!

come to think of it, *henry* potter more like it! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4ne13Zft9Q

An Argument Against Healthcare

From the National Alliance of Funeral Directors

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – The following message was released today by the National Alliance of Funeral Directors:

This week, several Republican Supreme Court Justices have argued that the Affordable Care Act supported by the Obama Administration is unconstitutional. At the National Alliance of Funeral Directors, we couldn’t agree more.

It was Revolutionary War hero Patrick Henry who said, in 1775, “Give me liberty or give me death.” From that moment on, legal scholars have agreed that the Constitution guarantees every American the liberty to be dead. Here at the Alliance, we will fight for your right to be dead to the death.

Let’s take a look, if you will, at the Second Amendment of the Constitution, which protects every American’s right to shoot another American. It says nothing about giving the person who is shot health insurance to prevent him from dying. This cherished constitutional right to shoot people and make them dead is currently recognized in all fifty states, most recently Florida.

In commenting on the Affordable Care Act this week, Justice Samuel Alito compared the Obama healthcare plan to burial insurance. Coincidentally, burial insurance is the Republican healthcare plan, and one that we enthusiastically support. Under this plan, every American would be mandated to buy a coffin from one of our member-owned and operated funeral homes. May we recommend the Peaceful Valley Royale,™ a luxury mahogany casket with sienna satin interior and the finest imitation antique nickel handles ($2899).

As the organization representing America’s funeral directors, gravediggers, embalmers and cremators, we are confident that the Supreme Court will ultimately do the right thing and decide that healthcare flies in the face of every American’s constitutional right to the pursuit of deadness. And when they do, we’ll be waiting for you.

Sincerely,

The National Alliance of Funeral Directors

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)

Greece Buys Mega Millions Ticket

Prime Minister Travels to Convenience Store in Indiana

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

ZIONSVILLE, INDIANA (The Borowitz Report) – In a move that raised many eyebrows among financial ministers across the Eurozone, the nation of Greece today purchased a Mega Millions lottery ticket in the hopes of winning a jackpot topping $540 million.

Prime Minister Lucas Papademos made the extraordinary purchase himself, traveling to a convenience story in Zionsville, Indiana where he briefly chatted with the Hoosier Lottery’s Mega Millions mascot.

While the odds of winning the jackpot currently stand at 1 in 176 million, experts say that the odds of Greece solving its financial problems on its own are approximately 1 in 975 zillion.

The Greek Prime Minister acknowledged that buying a Mega Millions ticket might appear to be a desperate move to the outside world, but added, “At this point it was either that or sell the Parthenon to Mark Zuckerberg.”

Asked why he purchased only one lottery ticket, Mr. Papademos said, “That’s all we had money for, and even that we had to borrow from Germany.”

those were very funny, lornz! i have never seen that newstopia before - hilarious!

Thanks. Newstopia is one of my favorite shows; brilliant stuff! It's a shame that it didn't last longer...

I've posted this before, but it deserves to be posted in this thread too.
