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.

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.

It would be interesting to cross section this against the success of each firms most/least successful funds. To identify what proportions of these gains are attributable to a good business model (eg. A profitable fees structure and effective sales engine building a quality client base), versus consistent successful investment. No doubt their funds must be on fire but is that just because their models are working in the current climate only? My experience would say a bit from column A and bit from column B. but I doubt that next year it will be the same funds enjoy the same level of great success.

Interesting this is really the other side of the coin of trading, the investment and funds business. However some really good lessons there on how to run a business in trading for consistent profitability.

2013 Hedge Fund Performance Numbers ~ market folly
Crain's Chicago Business : Subscription Center
S&P 500 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Out of interest I tabulated the managers 2013 returns from the following links for whichever I could find. This was done quickly and the data is a little fuzzy. In a great year for the S&P 500 some managers in the top earners list still managed to kill it whilst the average return in the hedge fund universe was 7.4%. From Big Mike's link, I also found it interesting that James Simons who no longer actively manages money but is still in the top few earners and more impressively he has been the only person to qualify for the list for the past 13 years. Holy grail anyone?
