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.

When I started to trade on simulation I've had a set of rules. My SL was 5 ticks. After a losing trade I took a 15 min break to cool off. After 3 losses in a row I took an hour break and then I came back to my PC. When I've made 5 losses that day I just took a day off and didn't trade for the rest of the day. It helped me a lot since I didn't hunt my loss from previous trade to make a profit (usually you just overtrade and lose more than you want). It worked for me and maybe it might to work for some new traders.
