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.

I did not want to post too much off-topic. I must admit that I am also fascinated by fast and elegant cars.

But it was more of a legitimate passion in the 20th century, when fast cars stood for technological progress while today they stand for recklessness and unnecessary pollution.

I would prefer this one ....

I have once seen a race where that car beat a Porsche 911 Targa.

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)

Have you seen this? Not a car and not very fast, but pretty cool nonetheless.

Especially if you've ever driven one of these,,,, backwards.

I used to have a very fast motorcycle. The thing is, once you get it up above about 120 mph, the wind drag and on your helmet becomes pretty unpleasant. You feel like the helmet is going to be ripped off your head. Great thrill, though, lot more bang for the buck than a car.

I'll take a Ducatti 998.

That being said, naked bikes like Harleys are more of a chick magnet than faired bikes, and having chicks come up to me asking for a ride is a lot more of a thrill for me...

Depends on a bike. Certainly the case with a naked bike. But a sport turer is very comfortable at high speed. I had Kawasaki zx9 back in a day, eent to the max on it not once, about 170mph and lying tucked behind the screen was quite comfortable and bike was very stable. Not so much stability on pure sport bike like my last yamaha r1. Over 150mph is uncomfortable and wind buffeting is high. But on a naked one 120-140 is about it, more is creating huge drag..
