Good morning everyone!

I have been trading for some years now but I want to introduce myself to the world of futures trading using orderflow, volume profile etc. So very nice to be here!

Before looking for expensive courses etc. I would like to look for free info on the internet to investigate.

Could you recommend books, guides, webpages etc. for me as a beginner regarding orderflow, volume profile etc?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Greetings from Spain

mmreds

Welcome, mmreds.

Have a look at the futures.io YouTube channel and look for Jigsaw Trading and NoBSDaytrading on YouTube. No BS Daytrading Course is pretty low cost and his info helped me understand order flow much better when I knew very little about it.

God speed!

Jeff

Jelelg, I recommend you read a book written by an exceptional trader from Alabama, Corey Rosenbloom: "The Complete Trading Course" Corey is now on staff at TheoTrade. As an engineer, I feel your pain and relate to your perfectionist proclivity. Corey is a perfectionist as well. BTW, Corey now lives in LA -- no, not Lower Alabama -- the LA on the Left Coast.

God bless you as well!

Jeff

Thanks for the recommendation!

I'm new to the forum and I must confess that I am not a Futures trader - I trade equity options. (I hope this does not degrade me in any way! . I figure that I can pick up on some things here that I can use in trading options. Iron sharpens iron after all.

Glad to have you here, gmftrs. Successful options and futures traders are primarily risk managers and that gives us a lot in common. At least some of us do both -- options and futures. If you don't already know about Don Kaufman and TheoTrade, I encourage you to check them out and I welcome any helpful recommendations from you.

Type "Options" into the search bar on this website. I think you will be pleasantly surprised with all that pops up -- lots of options threads on futures.io!

God speed your trading!

Jeff

Hi Mike and everyone!

I consider myself a beginner after nine years of very patchy trading starting as a client of someone who made recommendations and executed the trades for me to trading independently but again using someone else's recommendations, entries and stops.

I have been up and down half a year's wage and finally realise I have to start over as a day trader using a much smaller position size in order to keep my emotions under control.

I discovered a phrase that really appealed to me : "The unforced rhythms of grace" - and I have promised myself I will not allow trading to disrupt the unforced rhythms of my daily life as a semi-retired happily married man.

My favourite trading books are "The Inner Voice of Trading" by Michael Martin, "Trading your way to Financial Freedom" by Van K. Tharp, and "Trading as a Business" by Dick Diamond. My favourite author of these three is Dick.

I would really appreciate further reading suggestions, and I am looking froward to reading your thoughts and experiences.

Thanks for welcoming me aboard!

New to the website, but not new to trading.

I have come to realize I am my own worst enemy...
Analysis is right, indicators support analysis, but i always mess it up somehow.
Have traded and have had some success, then blown up acct, and then not gotten paid b/c someone else blew up acct.
I have seen enough violent short covering rallys to make me think there is one around every corner...another rally just ensued as I am typing this
When im on, Im on, and when i m off im off.
My first trade of the day seems to dictate the rest of the day for me...
I had a mentor whom I traded with on the floor, which made a world of difference...my equity had a consistent positive slope....thats when another trader blew out the acct...no joy!
After being on the floor for 12 years as either a clerk/broker/trader I decided it was time to leave...
And now I am back...
Looking for another mentor to help put it all together.

Mark

@sadago and @sorrycat, welcome to the community. As a relatively new trader myself, I can assure you you're in a good place. If you are already trading, sim or real, start a journal here. It helps your trading and helps other members engage with you. Ask questions and be open to answers and suggestions. Nobody here knows everything, but there are plenty of folks here who know a lot.

Most of all, good luck with your trading!

Hi fellow traders,

Started with FX CFD brokers. Found my groove in spot crypto and have been trading just the most liquid derivatives of xbt this past year or so and SPY options exclusively.

Now i'm looking for a low cost broker to start 'legacy' options with. Have my eye on bunds and stoxx for now. Might hit some US treasuries from there.

PS. Sierra fan!

Glad to join the community!

Hi everyone, I am new in the forum, but have been trading the futures markets for over 30 years. So, what do I do here? Well, I need assistance in understanding something a friend (and new trader) addressed to me. Told me about leeloo trading, I checked their site (I was not aware that such companies exist, but now I know) and I find their operating model very clever and profitable. Anyway, my friend (who asked me by the way to assist him in passing the evaluation), before registering with them, requested some information about the funded account's "payment threshold" of 1500$.I read the rules again and again, but (despite the fact that the first 8000 is supposed to be paid 100% to the funded trader) there is no mention about what happens, and/or if this "payment threshold" is ever released to the trader.
If any of you has had a funded account experience with them, I would be glad to hear what the rule is.
Thank you for your patience, any assistance on the matter would be appreciated.

Wow! Am I glad I found this forum. Did some very unsuccessful (emotional) trading about 15 years ago, but I'm approaching it differently this time around. Doing more research and education is very helpful to remove emotion from trades. Thank you Big Mike and all the others for this amazing forum. Happy trading!

I started my trading career as a Forex enthusiast. I am a computer programmer so I learned MQL4 and created a lot of robots -they call them Expert Advisors, but I love calling them robots- and never got to the point of actually making any money on them.

I expended hundreds and hundreds of hours trying to learn how to trade. But there is something wrong with the Forex market. It is not a real market. Brokers can give you any price they want and you sign for it.

After 15 years all I made was a 17.4% return on my account. At least I didn't lose my money, but that is really not a good result.

Years ago, when I was a computer technician a man called me to repair his computer. I used to go to homes and businesses to fix computers, so I went to his home. He was living in a 1 bedroom studio in a very poor neighborhood. I noticed that his 2 beds were full of printed charts.

It got my attention and I asked about the charts. The guy panicked. He looked at me as if I were going to stealth his soul. Finally, I was able to calm him down and I focused on fixing his computer. I like talking while I am fixing a computer because it is time-consuming and repetitive. So I talked a lot about his computer and how to make it work better.

Finally, the guy got a little bit comfortable and all of a sudden he asked me: "Do you see that number on my screen?", I said "Yes", he then replied, "Well, that is my balance in live trading account". I will normally do not care about such a comment, only that the number was a little bit over $4.8 million. Then he said: "I started 8 months ago with $50k from 5 of my friends, I have been trading day and night and that is my current balance, last night I lost $100k+"

Of course, I begged him to teach me how to do it but the only secret I could get was that Forex was not good and that I have to trade Futures. That was all.

So here I am. Trying to learn to trade Futures. I know about technical analysis, price action, and MQL4, still, I feel like a beginner.

I am happy to be here with you guys, hope I could be of help for some and that I get some help when needed.

Welcome to the world of newbies treated like dirt by AMP. AMP has their own thread on futures.io. One of my posts about a $1K check they lost is here:

I ended up having to stop payment on the $1K check I sent to AMP.

FYI, my complaining about AMP got me banned by AMP. AMP's way of dealing got them banned from this forum.

I had a totally different (much better) experience with Stage 5.

AMP is not representative of everyone in the brokerage business. Find somebody who will treat you with decency and respect.

I guess we need someone who has an experience with them to tell us. Also, I need to know if they have algo feature and if yes what is their coding language?

Hi @Robot,

Please check the LeeLoo review thread and see if it answers your questions. If not, ask your questions in that thread:

This thread is meant just for introductions by new members. Please take your questions to the thread that has been established for them.

Thanks.

I started trading btc since 3 years, it taught me a lot of things.. then I tried Forex & CFDS only to realize that futures is the right market for day trading due to ridiculously low fees and centralized exchange volume data better late than never

i do this full time , i m extremly passionate hard worker, hopefully sooner than i can expect i ll be able to contribute and help people grow here.

looking to start actively trading the ES1! contracts.

Hi all,
New 'legitimate' trader now. Got burned big time by off-shore binary bucket scams a couple years back. Recently found Nadex is sort-of kind-of like futures option binary trading but in a regulated exchange with defined limited risk, so am looking to figure it out. Will take time, the site is kind of complex. Although I am just demo trading for now I get bogged down trying to analyze what to do so I don't make mistakes, after all I am trying to repair the damage I did in my previous disasters. I also realize when it gets to involve real $ it will become a worse mind game. So, off to the races, glad to be here. I'd welcome comments from all fellow travelers.

Hi! i'm starting to dive in trading, that was my lifetime dream and now I have some time and money to invest in my future. Decided to go with futures because i think the prices are driven by the classic demand/supply rules (i'm talking energy, metals, agriculture, etc) much more than everything else SO there is gotta be more underlying sense than "support level" and "cup and a handle" kinds of sh*t.
I'm going to ask a lot of questions here and i'm planning to open account in one of the following months.

Good day Sir
Thanks for the video on the pure price pattern and the eight indicators. I have enjoyed the video and would like to form part of the software. I already have an account with another broker which is currently funded and would like to know how can I use the robot in my platform as the video does not say anything in this case.
Secondly, I have been losing since 2010 when I started trading relying on my own understanding of the markets and predictions from other people. I will win trades there and there however, my emotions will get the better*of me and my account will be blown out before I know, including end in a negative balance.
I think this will assist me both in dealing with my emotions and money management, most importantly ensuring that I don't have to stress about blowing my account ever against and be in the money week in and week out which is the ultimate objective - making money for better living.
Your assistance*is greatly appreciated
Kind regards
Tafita

Hi everyone! New to the forum.

I'm a day and swing trader. Going at it for 2 years now. Got into trading thanks to infamous bitcoin in 2017.

My first trade was $100 risked for $400 gain overnight. A small highlight of the craziness of 2017 crypto bull market.

A few months after I blew up all my earnings trying to long bear flags as Crypto lost 90% + of it's market cap.

I decided time to learn what the H is going on. It's been a great journey since. There was never a question of "is this for me" I knew it was and committed upon reading "Trading for a Living" a few months into my trading career.

The first chapter: "Decide now whether you want to do this as a hobby or for 30 + years because it's crucial in order to have the right mindset to be successful."

The rest is history. These days I average 2/3 trades a day on days I trade.

I'm particularly growing fond of the 30-yr bonds. I also trade US indices, gold, and oil. Notice crypto is gone from that list? Learned a few things so far ;b

For the record it's no knock on crypto traders. My personal preference. BTC did over 300% + in 2019 which makes it the highest performing asset. I bought around 34/36 and sold 5.6/5.9. Nice chunk. One other LTC trade around 35/45 I believe and sold in the 70s. Other than that I've been out of the market as it's highly manipulated by chinese whales. The greatest respect to anyone who is consistently profitable trading BTC. It definitely was a do-or-die market enviroment and shaped a lot of my training in that initial year. Hammering in things like risk management, fast reactions, independent analysis, a feeling of "seeing it all" after experiencing 400% spikes in one day (2017) to watching everything crumbling to pieces. An analogy I like was the crypto market moves at quadruple the speed of traditional markets. That's not so true as of the last quarter, but in general still fits.

I think it's important to have good life balance. Outside of trading I enjoy tending my garden, death metal drumming, gangster rap music, meeting people, fresh air away from computer screens, and studying/living zen buddhism.

Well introduced. Get the feeling you'll fit right in with that attitude of being here for the long term. There are a lot of members here who are willing and able to help aspiring traders.

Good that you found your way through actual trading. I come from somewhat similar experience although stocks was the vehicle that brought me here and stayed for the futures.


Enjoy the process, and if you're serious about trading for the forseeable future I'd suggest watching/attending webinars and keeping a journal here on FIO or find an accountability partner that you'll share your process with. Just my 2cents.

Hi All,

I have been learning a lot of indicators and have traded based on them. However i found that ICHIMOKU does perform better when compared to other indicators. Off late , i have started to trade using Price Action and just price action using market structures. NOt made a big profit but, i am learning to be consistent trader and trader without emotions. PLanning to take up Wycoff along with price action, but not sure as too where to start from.Also i am interested in learniing AMIBROKER coding and not aware as to where to start from.Looking forward to learn and happy to be guided by experts.I am happy to be a part of this forum. Thank you Mike

Hey all,

To build discipline, I want to have an platform reminder/limiter that will not let me loose more that my daily loss limit and notify me when I hit my target.

Is there such a thing already available?

Hi everyone

I purchased the pure price pattern indicator and successfully installed it, however, the data is not update and there is nothing, absolutely nothing in my chart.

Can anyone who has the indicator assist me, because I have sent infinite number of messages to support without any acknowledgment or help.

Anyone who can assist, please assist.

Kind regards

Hi All!,

I'm new to posting on this thread and just wanted to say hi!

I'm in Portland, OR and am currently trading the Emini S&P on sim, hoping to cross over to live trading soon with the micros using Ninjatrader and Jigsaw. I try to use volume profile and order flow to understand how the market moves and to find low(ish) risk entry points.

I'll try to post thoughts on the appropriate threads as I get going.

Cheers,
dye

Hey Mike and all,

Im so glad to be here. I first started trading forex and still on demo. Like many also some ups and downs.
I always try to build a system first and then backtest it to see if its profitable. Then I try to trade and stick by the rules.
Just from 3 months now I began with stocks and options trading. My biggest hurdle is moneymanagement and positionsizing, especially with stocks and options trading.

I also try to refine my timing for entries, keeping tabs with fundamentals, company research and how to match that with technicals. Trying to find out what can give a better edge. I hope to share my knowledge and learn also from like minded individuals. Hard work and team effort always pays off.

Hear yall succeed in this journey,

Ricoz

Well introduced. Get the feeling you'll fit right in with that attitude of being here for the long term. There are a lot of members here who are willing and able to help aspiring traders.

Good that you found your way through actual trading. I come from somewhat similar experience although stocks was the vehicle that brought me here and stayed for the futures.


Enjoy the process, and if you're serious about trading for the forseeable future I'd suggest watching/attending webinars and keeping a journal here on FIO or find an accountability partner that you'll share your process with. Just my 2cents.

Welcome

Thanks for the warm welcome and my apologies for the delay.

It's awesome to connect with a community with trading. Appreciate the advice. I've been posting my morning outlook on twitter. It's a cool way to be somewhat accountable since it's public, and I enjoy the extra push for diligence as a result of it. I'm totally open to having an accountability partner. As long as it's constructive. In the past most traders I've talked to 1 on 1 prefer to complain and vent their emotions. Something I don't care for when it comes to this business. We all have bad days but everytime the market swings? Come on. I'd imagine that's due to being a beginner myself so mostly having connections to other beginners. Looking forward to talking with more serious and experienced people on here as we all grow

Currently I'm at a stage where my technicals are sound and the last two months I've been improving my execution. I recently released whenever I feel the emotions of "fear / doubt" that means pull the trigger. More often than not those trades are sound. When I'm overly confident "oh for sure - easy" those often fail. Lol. Definitely enjoying the process. Trading growth extends outside of just the markets. One of the reasons I love it

Realized/realised*

Took me way too long to realise what you meant by that one sentence haha.

I upload to YouTube myself as my accountability process and also share some of those videos with a way more experienced trader here on FIO

Glad you found a way to keep track/share your journey that suits you. Feel free to pm me your handle any time I'd happily take a look when I can.

Hello Friends,

Two year veteran trading from the US, mostly stocks, recently futures and options. Day trader and some swing. I am interested in programming MultiCharts dot net. I have not written anything for MC but modified basic stuff so far. My review and blog is located at pro elite traders com.

I reached a point where money is not my primary goal. Mastering the trade is my primary pursuit. The money naturally follows.

I am interested in connecting with other C# developers for the MultiCharts dot net platform.

Stay focused on perfecting your craft.
Best

Hello!!

I am a very beginner trader willing to learn from everybody here.
I started to work as a trader's assistant in the brokerage firm located at 2 World Trade Center, New York City in 1988. I started to trade online in 1997 and watched all my money evaporate after 2001...
I am still struggling. Trading is very hard. I consider myself an infant trader who just born.
Feels great to be here. Thank you for creating this site, Big Mike!!

You might find it useful to start a trade journal on the forum. Look into "Trading Journals" on the main page if you're interested or curious.

People put anything and everything in their journals, in any level of detail. Some are trade-by-trade post mortems, some are, as you mentioned, simply a morning outlook, or a final summary, or whatever proves useful to them.

Almost everyone with a journal gets feedback that is helpful and constructive. The tone is contributory.

(Negative and rude posts are against the rules and the moderators -- ahem -- delete them. We are very intolerant of rudeness and want to foster an environment where traders assist each other.)

Good to see you here. Have fun with it.

Bob.

Hi There,

Been around the markets for a couple years, do a lot of social media and promotions for the mining markets in particular.

The highs and lows of trading keep me very interested. I mainly stick to the Canadian markets(being based out of Vancouver) looking for new strategies and ways to make money in the markets. Appreciate this site and anyone who helps me out!

Welcome! Interesting job you have. Canadian miner stocks have given me some bucks lately. But difficult to trade because rarely valid technical chart information. I had to rely on my guts and some hints from an investor.

I don't explain my charts. If you like to follow my trades, look for these lines.

I think mining stocks and periphery are the assets to have the next decade. Especially GC/SI exploration. As an investment, not as short term trading vehicles. Now is the time to pick an to be patient.

I am thankful to finding this site and be able to communicate with other traders that want the best for each other to succeed and grow their accounts to have a better life for their family and themselves. Greed is a bad word but profits is not.
In the past I traded Forex for several years but my mentor switched to Futures as it offers opportunities Forex does not. so I followed his lead.
I find it interesting and look forward to the next step in my venture.
I am also interested in Options but have no idea where to start but hope to learn more in the new year.

Hi Monica,

I think we share almost similar trading trajectory and success or failure in trading. What are you trading now and what is your style?

Have you found success in your quant methods? Though not a pure quant but I tried to build some statistical models in MT4 and MT5 but nothing consistent.

Hi,

I have been involved in with the markets and trading for about four years. I have read several books about trading, and I am most interested in futures and options. During this time I have mostly done paper trading of futures. I actively trade options live in some relatively small accounts (I am a fan of TastyTrade and their methods). I have enjoyed seeing success with these accounts.

I have done three combines with TopStepTrader (did not pass, but did improve) and I have come to realize I need a better plan and/or more practice. I like the pressure a combine puts on you, it's not quite paper trading (because what you paid for it is at risk), but not quite your own account capital at risk.

What has really got me fascinated with futures for the past year or so is using order flow methods to trade in and out of the market. I have learned a few methods on understanding the DOM and market/volume profile. I really want to know how successful proprietary traders do it.

I'm currently working on getting the Jigsaw daytradr platform & setting it up to use.

I am currently still in college, studying computer networking & security (....could end up being a network admin, but I would prefer full-time trading ).

Some of my top favorite books I have read, still reading or re-reading about trading:

Trading in the Zone by Mark Douglas
Mind Over Markets by James Dalton, Eric Jones, Robert, Dalton
An End to the Bull by Gary Norden
Trend Following by Michael Covel
Option Volatility & Pricing by Sheldon Natenberg
The Option Trader's Hedge Fund by Dennis Chen, Mark Sebastian

I just joined elite membership, I really think this site has incredible, useful content. I want to help support it and use some of the included benefits.

Nice! I have used Jigsaw in the past, but ow I feel maybe I did ot have all the other things needed for successful trading, so ultimately loss even with Jigsaw and other OrderFlow products I purchased.

Hello All,

I started trading the high flying stocks of 1999, only to blow up my first account at the age of 17. This experience kept me away from stocks for a period of time and started to look into other ventures.

I started to get interested again, when 2007 showed up and I started to see certain actions that hit me straight in the gut and I moved everything to bonds, after seeing the a 13 % decline from the Peak. I got very lucky and I know it, but I was able to save my 401k.

You think I would be smart and buy toward the bottom, but I stayed in bonds pretty much until 2012. I knew I wasn't ready to trade, but I did read several books on portfolio management and have consistently performed well within market conditions, outperforming the SP500 most years. I always feel my luck will run out one day, but managing my accounts this way has worked well for me. I will continue to manage the majority of my money using these methods.

I'm actually in I.T. and specialize in Infrastructure, but I do have a Programming/Scripting Background. I now want open up a futures account and start trading Crude Oil and Gold. I have read "The Logical Trader" and this book resonates with me as Mark Fisher's methods make sense to me. I have tweaked them in a way, using some additional indicators that I have programmed in Trading view.


Feel free to message me about anything Markets or I.T in particular. All Feedback, comments and helpful advice are welcome.

Unfortunately I also used to have similar kind of luck that once I enter the trading with some funds and right then within a week or two I will encounter with the biggest drop or pop of that last 6months or even history. I would accumulate the funds and just when I think I know the trading range and how high or low it can go and extend my position loss and this market would go to the last tick until my positions are stopped out.

Hi everyone,
New trader looking to trade the 10 year bond.
For the past 3 years I've been studying and trying to find quality education on trading. I passed on a few 'schools' using the hard sell. I came upon this forum from John Grady's blog and like the philosophy here.

If anyone, new or experienced, want's to talk bonds, I'm interested.

Thanks for all the valuable info you've taken the time to post.

Thanks for this video on rookie mistakes on trading with volume profile. I am using volume profile as well as trendline indicators to pick up the directional bias.

I started trading futures in October 2018. it's was amazing the first week ,i made a lot of money. After this ,without knowledge with my money management ,i lost a big part of my account. i decide to review the way i trade to be consistent..I learn a lot about price action,support ,resistance .etc etc.

After a month(12-14hrs per day) in simulation, now i feel better when i trade . but i put a lots rules every day in my trading sessions. like: don't chase trade ,anticipate ,and if you don't see your favorite pattern( don't trade) ..wait for it ..sometime , i don't find any trade during the day .. that's the life .

One of my rules , i only make 2-3 trades ,per day..and i try to follow the trend as long as i can .

Sorry everyone ,i,m not very good in English .but it's a nice way to improve .

Thanks

ps: i trade every day Nq (Futures )



I also trade NQ futures and the only way I am able to turn the corner is by limiting my trades to 3-4 winning trades of 4-5 pips, so make 15-20pips per contract and then stop. No overtrading is the key and have stoploss set... It is the day I decide to not use stop that market explodes against my position.

Hello and thanks for letting me join the forum. Not new to trading but new to using Ninja Trader. Hope to learn a few things on this powerful trading platform and share some thought and ideas with strategies on futures. Using the advance trading management strategies in Ninja Trader 8 are a must and especially good for keeping disciplined which removes emotions. That means there is more time to focus on other things rather than worry about every single tick. I've made about every mistake there is to make in regards to trading in my 16 years but consider all of them meaningful lessons. The market has a way of teaching valuable lessons if you are willing to learn.

Thanks again and regards,

Rick

I think you have made a good choice, on Ninjatrader platform are available some of the best indicators and it's chart trader provides automatic Stop implementation which can be a game changer.

Hi Michael and bmtrading9:

Did I do or say something wrong here? If I ever did, my humbled apology, alright, Michael?

My comment is focused on his/her trading charts,
not on him/her as a person, nor whether the trader
is trading sim or live or live money; or not. These
are all irrelevant.

And when you decide to go on live for real money,

we like to see, read and enjoy that too, K?


My response was based solely on this statement above. It appears that you are suggesting that GruttePier is not a live trader. On FIO, many people post amazing trades, but then it becomes clear they are not trading live. That is what it appears like you're saying -- that he appears to be a good trader, but that he trades on sim. Your statement, "When you decide to go on live for real money" is the reason I thought you did not believe him to be a "real" trader.

It's often the case that people on FIO are blowing smoke, but GP is not one of those people. He trades live, with all the frustrations, joys and in-betweens that come with trading. He is also a friend of mine, which is why I rose to his defense. If, as you say, you meant only that you admire his trading, that's great. So do I.

If I drew the wrong conclusion, I humbly apologize, but I'm not the only one, as I've received a handful of messages from folks familiar with GP asking about your comment. The general consensus was that you were calling him out as a sim trader.

Cheers, and good trading to you.

Michael

I feel like futures.io is delightfully free from this type of thing for the most part, either that or I’m somewhat blind to it.

I feel a journal’s purpose is first to help its creator navigate their journey. Based on this premise there is no value in blowing smoke, so the creator is merely wasting their own time. Others can learn from and find value in them too and i guess that is where things get more complicated.

I read a handful of journals religiously and try to stay current with a bunch of others. I find value in them all. Even if on does seem to be “blowing smoke” it usually points to something that i could be doing better as a trader.

But you reminded me of something that I go back and forth on in my own journal which is posting the filled order summary. I always felt it seemed redundant.

I think in the end a journal is a learning tool and a way to help each other too. YMMV.

Started from an Developer/IT Background with some knowledge in finance and stock trading business.
For me, having fun and doing something i like was/is always part of the story.
Started with some trading ideas based on equity news which worked for a while, until others catched up.
Now try to find a more purified approach based only price action and/or technical indicators using futues.

Started from an Developer/IT Background with some knowledge in finance and stock trading business.
For me, having fun and doing something i like was/is always part of the story.
Started with some trading ideas based on equity news which worked for a while, until others catched up.
Now try to find a more purified approach based only price action and/or technical indicators using futues.

Hi @Developer!

I'm like you: I try to make sure I'm having fun.

For futures, are you looking at intraday time frames, or looking at swing trades?

Are you writing algorithms or trading manually?

Hi @Eric

Currently I am backtesting trend following strategies for longer time frames like days or maybe weeks.
I've tried initially using intraday time frames, but not very successfully.

And everything automated, so to avoid any ad hoc decisions.

Did see your journal, nice job so far, keep it up, although I can't comment on manual strategies.

Hi Everyone,

I am currently living and working in Shanghai. After some sizable losses, trial and error, I am finally moderately successful in my trading.

This being said, I have been trading for many years but still new to the futures markets and have a ton of related questions.
I am fortunate that I have found futures.io and how to use this board to gain and share information.

Glad to meet you and happy trading!

I reached a point where money is not my primary goal. Mastering the trade is my primary pursuit. The money naturally follows.

Stay focused on perfecting your craft.
Best

Really good advice.

Thanks for having me here. I'm excited to learn the Art of the Trade. I think I will develop a set of trading strategies that I can "Set and forget" and cycle through depending on market conditions.

Looking forward to being a part of the community!

Hola Pana, mira eso depende de a quien le preguntes, los que tenemos ciertos ingresos en dolares pues tenemos un pelin mas de libertad pero aun esta difícil, inseguridad, falta de luz colas, el metro una mierrr... y la incertidumbre de que va a pasar es lo mas difícil de todo, la inflación también toca el dolar pues aun hasta el dolar lo están devaluando.

Pero este no es el lugar para hablar de eso, nos van a sancionar si quieres por correo mejor
