Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors – all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • 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.

It probably doesn't matter, IMHO, since traders are imperfect and can therefore screw up even perfect systems.

The trading cosmos is an evolutionary cosmos. So let us have a look at similar environments:


(1) Which is the perfect animal?

(2) Which is the perfect plant?

(3) Who is the perfect girl?


Answers:

(1) Bulls or bears are an obvious choice. Bull is delicious, bear is something that I have never tasted.

(2)

(3) Would you use the criteria of Keynes, or would you stand up for your own beliefs?

#2 is cute! I've got a friend who's making a ton of $$ selling it in Northern California. If it were only legal here in good 'ol boy Texas! Probably after I'm dead & gone.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Don't be so cynical ...

In a State where ...

birth control cannot be mentioned in sex education ...

lawmakers want to change history books to put Joe McCarthy in a better light than Thomas Jefferson...

a large number of people believe that Noah had dinosaurs on the Ark...


It could happen...

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.

Two, wow That is like the guy who had 9 winning trades and declared himself "successful" now at trading.



Why not put it on C2, charge $1000-2000 a month and cap it at say 100 extra contracts so it won't distort your method while also bringing in an extra 100k a month...

I can't recollect seeing the trades. Could you show/announce the trades again ?
