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.

-- Big Mike

And then 8 months later, after a deer jumped out in front of me ...



That's a real shame seeing it in that state after just such a short period of time. But seeing it was still so new (and an M!) I guess it was repaired, right?

It was a shame. Really sucked and I loved that car!

They didn't fix it .. BMW diagnostics determined major engine damage due to all the oil leaking out and would not repair it. A new engine was $40k+ (I think $46?? Can't remember exact number now for it but I have the quote somewhere still, plus labour, plus 6-8 month wait for new engine) plus $30k+ in body/repair work put it well into the 75% range. Insurance wrote me a check for full replacement value (around $125k with taxes, etc).

I still haven't replaced it with anything .. But possibly Cayenne coming soon

I'm no expert, what is she? I wish they were flying 787's on the routes I frequent, sadly they are 737's or A320's at best.

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

@Big Mike she's a McDonnell Douglas MD-11...stupidly overpowered GE CF-6 engines (like I had on my sweetheart 747)...nexgen glass cockpit and though she is a little older now, very advanced systems for her time. Great airplane, a bit of a tarnished safety record but I don't care I love flying it!

I recently flew a trip in it @43,000 feet just cause I could lol! Think 1968 Z28 camaro.

About 15hrs. I gotta wrap up my instructor time and then solo. I started it and stopped mid way because I couldn't handle everything at once. Now I have cleared my plate and made it a priority to complete.
