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

You can learn much more about human nature on Madison Avenue [the market] than you will from experts on human nature, because on Madison Avenue on stands or falls by the sales. Professors [wall street analysts] in their ivory towers can say anything because there's no penalty attached. Go to where there is a penalty attached and there you will find wisdom. --Idries Shah

This is very true and also why I stopped watching finance tv. Now I just check for news to avoid it or make my own assumption from the factual figures.

Hath smaller fleas that on him prey
And these have smaller still to bite 'em;
And so proceed ad infinitum.
