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

Coffee

I love the smell of coffee but I cannot stand the taste. People keep saying it is an acquired taste. Do I just need to drink coffee until I get used to it?

I found out why the Swiss export so much coffee from here to back home.

the cold hard truth is "YES". Drink it till you are so addicted that you love it...It was a long time before I came around to the charms of a hot cup of coffee but once I did, there was no stopping!

Seems a bit fishy, seems like you're going for initial post count.

Indeed that is kinda obvious from @GreekStrike, probably get banned fairly soon. Better not turn up in a particular vendor thread haha.

Side note, regarding flavor. Living here in Colombia I find that I far prefer imported Brazilian roasts. They seem generally richer in flavor but lower in caffeine. I guess I should roast my own here.

He just wanted to private message which requires 5 posts. I reviewed his other posts and let it stand as-is.

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)

You guys are brutal. A new user can't even post to say he likes the smell of coffee without being accused of being a vendor? Get a grip.

@TheShrike, You know perfectly well it was a be careful on my part. So less of your "you guys" please.

Clusters of non-questions (showing no regard for people who might take time to look at them), half the time that is someone banned blasting in 10 posts to get back. Why is the rule there to begin with?

I did not report but if I had seen 6-7 posts I would have thought about it. Don't know if Itchy did or Mike just saw it.

We tend to favor sweet foods over bitter ones like coffee nowadays.

Too much sweetness everywhere.
