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

Just an odd factoid I learned while living in Kyoto, which is a day's march from the Sea of Japan.

Sushi originated as a very clever means of packaging raw marine fish so that it could be eaten even by people a day's journey inland, in the days before refrigeration, without resorting to the traditional techniques of salting, drying, or pickling.

So, the vinegared rice was just sufficiently preservative for the fish to keep during the day's journey. The classic sushi of this type you can still buy at small shops in Kyoto, saba zushi, which is just a piece of mackerel wrapped around a vinegared roll of rice, with a thin layer of pickled something or other on the outside.

A luxurious delicacy for rich city folk.

Yep Sushi is about like Beef Jerky in the west... a way to hold food longer when there was no refrigeration.
