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

Price is a vagabond

Somewhere (at a certain price area) it settles down for a while, until it doesn't feel comfortable anymore, and then it moves quickly (aka trends) to another area where it settles for a while.

Sometimes it escapes to another continent (aka crash or massive shortsqueeze)

It's not about being better than other people or taking someone else's money, it's about being better than yourself. - Me

If gold was discovered in the mountains tommorow, one things for sure. Someone's going to make a lot of money selling shovels.

Trade related one-liners

Hi all,
This is how I describe trading a choppy day to non traders.

"Picking up nickles in front of a bull dozer."

Better with a drawl:
"Pickin up nickles in from of a bull dozer."

Short version:
"It's a dozer day."

What is a pattern?

Nearly all price patterns can work some of the time, try to trade them and most will work none of the time. - Me

Investors generally overestimate what they can do in the short run but greatly underestimate what they can do over a lifetime.
