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.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Position sizing controversy

the last two are in direct opposition to each other

discussion here=>

I am always suspect when someone says they only bet .5 % of their account a trade because I never hear this line of reasoning mention the correlation of their current positions.

As an extreme example it wouldn't make sense to say I only bet 1% per trade but right now I have 1% each long on ES, SPY, QQQ, NQ, YM and DIA. You can't just ignore the correlation of your bets if you are doing something like this.

Anyone who actually trades this way would figure out the importance of this correlation the first time they hit a bit of market turbulence.

John Moulton

John Moulton

VERY large spread trader of Government Bonds and Bank Bill

He quoted Jack Nicklaus because the parallels to trading:

Jack Nicklaus speaking of Hale Irwin who was receiving a great prize:
"Hale Erwin is a great manager of himself and the course. "
and to anyone:
"Know who you are, play your game and believe in yourself."

Keep your mind in the future, in the now.

Jack Schwager interviewed by Matt Z

I liked this video where @mattz interviews Jack Schwager.

There are many takeaways from the video, from adapting to changing markets to the various personality types of a trader.

I liked in particular Schwager's recounting of some traders who failed at the beginning but kept coming back.
