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.

Just a Fun little hypotherical question

So i was wondering about how many people fail as a traders, and was wondering what would happen if you were to magically change the buy and the sell. Lets say you have someone completely new to trading and teach them the basics of trading. Everything appears to be normal, but the buy buttons sells and the sell buttons buy the stop loss is a target and the target is a stop loss. The person does not know that things are secretly reversed. Would this person end up as a consistant winner by constantly losing.

@Big Mike or @sam028 can move it for you.


As for your original question I would only suggest: why not try it yourself on a simulated account?

I've just read the following which may answer your question


WOW CO View Post
The other day there were two traders on here who were exactly opposite - one short and one long in the same instrument at the same time - both went home with $ that day. That's an eye-opener. One was scalping the other was holding for the swing. Asking questions on this open forum allows those learning to benefit from the experienced traders on here, who have always displayed a willingness to help. Plus I lost count of the number of times someone has asked a question, and I was thinking the exact same thing LOL.
