With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.

Do you guys and gals ever look at trading videos. This guy on youtube trades some serious size. Like 450 in the ES and 50 6E. He shows his DOM, but you can't tell if its live or sim. I think its live. He doesn't do much commentary, so not very educational. Most of the videos are at high speed. It may not be helpful, but its interesting to see someone trade that kind of size and have end with a PnL of 100K+. If you can figure out how he is trading please share.

Do you really think someone trading this size with real cash will spent time on making videos ?
With RAP as background sound ?

Sam, I know it seems crazy or odd, but I don't think making videos or the kind of music he uses is an indication of anything. It is my understanding that some of the most successful traders are not the sharpest tools in the shed and that they may even be what some would call blue collar. If the guy is young enough and likes Rap and is making this kind of money then he has the time to do the videos etc and may enjoy it. I an not 100% certain, but some of the videos are of him in the Thinkorswim chat room while trading. Unless it's a scam it seems valid. There is also the aspect of ego and from what I gather this guy has a big one.

one way to verify it, if you have time, is to record t&s then match it with his dom his order should show up on t&s. That was how we busted Frank Soarz from TI.

Welcome, our new alien overlords!



Mike

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)
