futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

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 don’t 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.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Use Chrome.

The error appears to be with your browser trying to create a cache copy of the image, and it can't on your side.

Delete your cache.

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.

London just rotated right back through it's session low, just as the pit did yesterday. Very "whipsaw" price action the last few days.

Stop hit as I hit "post" I was done, it had good rr, and so I tightened to where I do not care. A win is a win.

I am in an interesting place in year 1.

My trading in most areas is at all time worsts. In the few that they are at all time bests, I am trading as "practice".

My confidence is becoming a two-sided thing. And I am being conscious about respecting the strengths and weaknesses of both. On a "reality" side (as traders might refer to it), my numbers, suck this year. And what happened was a visual change, without a doubt. And that is not to be ignored. Changing ANYTHING visual changes things, in a way. As we assign lines and labels and patterns, we also give them their own identity. In that moment, we have strayed.

The biggest thing I see so far is that when I mention "money", I suck. When I work on "practice", I see things differently than what might even sound reasonable. I converse internally a lot more frequently. I feel as good and mostly better than I have in a long long time. Alive, and discovering the real risks that this means, to trade fulltime, as my reality.

Primal is a part, and as anti-social as that may sound, it becomes necessity in a world of "reality". The world that I have decided to dive into headfirst as of this year. Closed a net $200k/year business to do it. And as of tonight, not my best trading ever...

And the weird part is, even as I type that I started to smile, or even laugh. There was a post today on Facebook where someone said something about , laughing out of context. And viewed as some level of "insanity", or as I aka, "outside the box".
