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 don't have to make a lot of money to make a lot of money.

If it's a good buy at ten, it's a good buy at two...

Good bye house.

The market is never "wrong".

I don't know who said it first though. There is more I've taken from the link below
in case any newbie might not understand the meaning.

The last thing inside you that is directly linked with your profit is being honest. If a system it just doesn't work, you should be honest and admit it. The market is never wrong...the market is always right, no matter what. It might be irrational, it might be illogical you could get up from your trading chair one day and say ... It doesn't make sense.. Yes, the market often doesn't make sense, but it is right. And if you don't make a profit, your system is wrong, not the market.

===========================================================================

Take what the market gives you.

In other words, even if you do everything perfectly, your profits on a given day/week
might not be as big as a given day/week in the past. This may be due to a lower volatility
of the ES (if you're just trading that) or for perhaps some other reason.

Said in varied ways:


Price is the only truth in the market, anything else is a lie.

Pure price action is the only truth in the market.

The only truth we know in the market is the price.

The only truth in the market is the current price.

The only truth on a price chart is the price itself.

In the market it pays to remember that the price is the only truth.

Yes, trading related only.

If you have general stuff, you can post it in off-topic section or in the "futures.io (formerly BMT) twitter" thread.

Hi Mike

I posted this below (and you replied with the above):

So are we still (ideally) suppose to post about trading only?

I don't know if I really have an opinion or not, but trading encompasses
many subjects. I don't have a complete list off the top, but,

money
chance
fear
pride
greed


I've noticed that the trading related one-liners that pop up are not always
trading related. This one below is interesting but can also apply to investing.


" With this uncertainty, everyone I talk to is in two positions: cash and fetal "

This one is pretty generic:

" People who know get paid by people who don't "

Have your criteria changed? I guess that many things can apply to trading
directly, and many, like risk, fear, pride, can also apply, however only indirectly.

For this thread the posts need to be related to trading. Investing is close enough. Yes, many things apply.

Mike

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)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
