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.

Gut feeling? Nah!


Dear All,

I'm sorry but I can't see how intuition and gut feeling can serve me in the markets. If you don't have a thoroughly backtested strategy with a positive expectancy and you become almost a robot executing it you have no option being successful. At least that's my case and I'm sure it is the case for lots of people struggling in this contraintuitive world of trading. Intuition can only get you so far. Once you read 'Trading in the Zone' you understand.

I started trading the way you do and was very good at it. However, I moved away from that style to trade purely on gut feeling and intuition because I learned that's how I prefer to "read" and understand markets. I believe this change gave me an enormous advantage over the vast majority of profitable traders. In my experience the intuition-based route is more efficient and growth oriented. I also don't believe anyone can truly understand that until they do it for themselves.
