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

Can I ask something....

How come so many Russians gravitate to this type of trading?

I think that a much higher percentage of Russians look into order flow than say European or American traders.

Any thoughts on that?

Maybe us Europeans and US folk have been brainwashed much more on technical analysis and charting (best way for pros to empty our accounts)? While those who 'know' better give priority to the tape? (As do the Euro/US Pros emptying said accounts!)

Ahahahaha. No man )))
Russians are brainwashed too))) TA is a king ))) I start to study tape at the russian forum. There were more than 10000 peoples and only 5-10 show big interest in tape
Tape requires TIME and passion. It is not a surprise not many people trust it )))
Prepare to spend 2-2.5 years to teach it. This is a good case. Average you need 4-6 years ))) BUT THAN))) This is a type of trading with a MINIMAL RISK and maximum PNL

@bloom,

did you ever consider using a volume ladder instead of the tape?

I believe an enhanced dom and the volume ladder is a very good combination.

I agree - maybe we should just send the money to Russia.

Save us paying the broker too!

Bloom - let us know the best account number to use...
