With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.

How much money and time have you spent so far in trading?

Hello all, Im happy to join you guys!

To kick things off, Id like to run a quick survey on how much have you already spent on trading (courses, books, private lessons, burnt accounts, etc.)? How long have you been trying before you became successful or how long have you been trying in general if you are not successful yet?

Thank you for your imput and hope you have a great day!

Bob

Hi,

See this existing thread:

Mike

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.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hi there Bob

I thought it would be interesting (if not sickening) to start a thread where futures.io (formerly BMT) members can name what trading software, programs, methodologies, products, e-books etc. they have bought over the years.

I was just comparing the two initial posts of each thread. Where do you see the difference in the question asked? Is that the lenght of time?

Hi, yes, mainly. But also many posts in that thread are just listings without price. But it's OK, let's see if anyone wants to share in this thread

I'll lead by example, trading has cost me something about 7 to 7.5 Grand so far in last 7 years I've been trying to get grasp of it. I'm slowly getting stabilized tho!

I have spent more than 15 years trading off and on. My buddy tipped a stock and I sold for a 50% loss. I took several stabs at trading, still do. My first one, I lost 5k while I traded before work, my second attempt I lost 1k learning at a prop firm, but made several thousands more for a few years and now I trade futures using automated strategies. So far I am break even.

As you can see, you don't need much capital to devote your life to the markets. Many companies provide you with additional capital if you demonstrate some kind of success.

Whatever you do, don't start with capital you can't afford to lose. It will mess up your mind and chances are you will blow up quickly.
