With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you donít need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.

Gary uploaded to the file sharing section an interesting ebook. The author is Markus Heitkoetter, the book is The Complete Guide to Daytrading. The Complete Guide to Day Trading: A Practical Manual From a Professional Day Trading Coach: Markus Heitkoetter: Books

For whatever reason he made the book available for download for free. It's in our file sharing section (courtesy of Gary) here:

I skimmed the book. It has a some good sound advice but is really written for beginners or for people that have so far ignored the good sound advice of others. The forum has plenty of both


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.
