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

Entire inside of the house is covered in crazy dust.... Keeping the office doors shut to prevent, as much as possible, the dust from getting all over screens, computers, network drive, routers, home automation hubs, battery backups etc. So with all the noise and my new trade machine awaiting on-site tech support still no trading happening. Arrrrr

I just had to measure it to order the stone and calculate the area. I got 18 feet 5 inches or 5.61 meters to the ceiling.

Here is what was done today. Mason had many pieces to cut for the bottom so took a good deal of time.
Materialism at its finest.....lol....
Materialistic = headache

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

I seriously need a nice office with a good view !!!.. it is almost 10 months since I quit my job and the one room setup is beginning to tire me out, esp hiding from the kids part. I am talking to a prop / HFT firm here on Monday for platform development and trading ( they have a trading desk other than HFT ). Let us see what life brings next !!!!

I am using the programming books as monitor stand... may have to find a different stand for monitors !!
