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

The last thing you want to do as a trader will be the last thing you do.

This sounds like an Fat Tails original. I'm sure it will catch on.

We often believe the more we practice a skill or technique - over and over again, many times - the better we’ll get. This is not necessarily true. In fact, every time you practice a technique incorrectly, you’re increasing your chanced of doing it wrong again. It’s easy to become very experienced at repeating the same mistakes. Practice doesn't make perfect; only perfect practice makes perfect.

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)

It's not the size of the edge, but the frequency with which the edge can be exploited--and the size with which it can be exploited--that makes the trader a living. --Brett Steenbarger

You don't need a stop loss for your first trade, unless you want to put on a second trade.
