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.

Question to Jack


thanks for providing this event!


thanks for giving us the opportunity to listen to you and asking questions.

"Have you ever talked again with one or more of your interviewed traders, whose opinion about what they told you that time, changed completely with time, meaning they wouldn't undersign that again this time due to new experiences and what kind of statements were that?"

Kindest regards,

Question for Jack Schwager

How do you keep your emotions under control and maintain a good view on the market during trading and especially during regular trading hours when volume and volatility is often very high?

Thanks in advance,

Question for Jack

Nowaday it's possible for every novice trader to backtest strategies and so it can can be tested for statistical reliability.

Do you think backtesting is important or do you think it's better to watch price by yourself and manual test your strategy? Because there is no holy grail in trading and market conditions change over time..

Futures Edge on FIO

How much money do you need to trade futures successfully?

Question for Jack Schwager:

What are the top 2 or 3 common traits among the Wizards that you believe were instrumental in creating their success?

In your opinion, is it worthwhile for a typical, less-than-successful trader to attempt to "learn" or emulate these desirable traits, or would you say that these success-generating characteristics are simply part of the Wizards' innate personal makeup and really cannot be developed by someone who does not already possess them?

i really enjoyed your "market wizards" books and find them helpful.

As (to my current knowledge) you concentrated on traders who really grew big and publicly acknowledged, iŽd like to ask you if you did or plan some research on "hidden market wizards" (or maybe even another book?).

With "hidden market wizards" i mean the (as far as i heard from brokers) around 1% private traders who consistently make good money on the account but never show up publicly.

Thank you, i am really looking forward to the webinar,

Hello Jack -thankyou for your time -

Do you feel all markets have a simple math base and that we as traders over complicate things ?

Hedge Funds and Government Regulations

I read some time ago that George Soros was closing his Hedge Fund because increased government scrutiny was making it difficult and cumbersome to operate Hedge Funds. Are Hedge Funds becoming a thing of the past? Would you recommend that one start and operate a Hedge fund as a superior method to create wealth?

Question for Jack about changing markets

Thanks Mike for the invitation :-)

Q: Jack - if you believe in market circles - what is out of your experience a normal full circle in time?

Do you think the current emphasis on "price action" is a return to the roots of trading or just another one of the constant fads that sweep through the trading community?
