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.

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

Here is the recording:


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.

Great webinar as always. Thanks.

It's interesting how many questions there were on HFT's. As TST discussed, HFT's are playing a different game to the rest of us. Ignore them. Trade longer timeframes. That doesn't mean you have to become a multi day swing trader. Even if your trades only typically last 30 minutes. You're still WAY outside of what the HTF's are concerned with.

If you're not making money, it's not because of HFT's. That is a cop out and is just looking for excuses.

Again, great webinar. Thanks.

Recreational vs Professional Traders

I found this to be one of the most helpful webinars I've been to too date. The discussion was real, with real experiences and practices. It allowed me to see where I am currently positioned in the "scheme of things". The sports analogies were right on target and made things very real. The best part though was what I learned about making progress thru "process". This webinar tied a lot of things together for me personally!

Thank you all for an extremely enlightening presentation, time well spent.
