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.

Supply and Demand

Most of the threads about this topic have died. I converted these articles to PDF so they are easy to read and store. Written by James B Stanley a trainer for Daily FX, they are less highbrow than many of the discussions become on forums and therefore easier to understand by beginning traders. Read "The forces of Supply and Demand" first.

BM. If this is not the place for these stick them somewhere else.


Be warned, if you ask questions about this topic, I will respond using BIG, ENORMOUS words to hide the fact that I can still not work out what the difference is between S&D and S&R except you mark the first with a rectangle and the second with a line

Reads like an excerpt from a beginner's tutorial for undergraduate students in economy. The approach helps to understand an order book.

However, it is not really applicable to trading for a simply reason .. It assumes that there is a negative feedback which creates demand at lower and supply at higher prices. Limit orders tend to create negative feedback, but market orders do not always follow that logic.

Market prices of stocks and commodities actually often behave in the opposite way. If price moves up, this increases demand, as more traders jump on board the train when it takes off. That principle is what trend following is based upon.

There is an existing thread on this subject that is relatively new:


I am closing this thread as a duplicate in order to prevent a split topic. Please re-post in the existing thread.


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.
