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.

SpaceX

While currently private and not traded, I figure they will do an IPO at some point and I often like to talk about SpaceX so decided to finally create a thread for it.

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.

Futures Edge on FIO
I wouldn't count on an IPO in the next 2 years minimum, 5 years if I had to guess. Tesla has kind of burned his fingers some so to speak I believe.

Edit to add - the rocket launching business is a very risky business. Risky business does not lend itself well to the emotions of the stock market. But at the end of the day I am betting on the fact that it will go public. If it does and follows in Tesla's footsteps I will be a very happy person

I agree on the 5 yr time frame.

Boeing said to win NASA space taxi contract - CNET

If Boeing wins without even flying a craft, that will be a travesty.

A travesty indeed ... but would result in lawsuits. I have a hard time believing the Wall Street Journal though as well. If you look on the outside NASA would be dumb to not award multiple contracts. I think the main thing is what the % split or splits would be not necessarily who is winning it. But I have an obvious bias so what do I know
