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.

-- Big Mike

Doubt is not an agreeable condition, but certainty is an absurd one.
Voltaire - 1767

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.

I disagree, and prefer this version that I've read elsewhere:

Speculation is an effort - probably unsuccessful - to turn a little money into a lot. Investing is an effort - which should be successful - to prevent a lot of money from becoming a little. And people who try to get rick quick insist on calling themselves “investors” (or “traders”), even though they are clearly speculators.

It's fine to disagree. Investors are people who use the word "investing" as an excuse for the fact that they buy value, management, product and long term potential. They buy at the high of the market, then they try to manage they their so called "investing" via trading.
