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.

How many trades per day?

How many trades per day do you place? A trade should be counted as '1' regardless of contract size executed.

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.

I used to trade much longer time horizons than I do currently. Shortening the life-cycle on my trades from days or weeks down to just a few minutes several times a day was, in part, an effort to improve my consistency. Those big weekly and monthly PnL swings can get a bit irritating when trading is your only source of income... Besides, when scalping or day-trading, you tend to figure out a lot quicker if your system needs to be recalibrated. Learned that the hard way...

Which products do you trade?

 
A bit curious here.

For those of you that take over 100 trades a day. How many instruments is your system trading?

Yesterday's excellence is today's standard and tomorrow's mediocrity
