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.

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.

would have to put trade/money management on the same hallowed ground as price action, brian

that being said, your journey of self-discovery was both necessary and inevitable

lessons are learned from losing; winning is the culmination of lessons learned...

Very poor trading today

I tried to get cute, fade the trend. I never do this but I did today and remembered why its not advisable. It costs money!

Got back to BE then shorted again without the recquisite LH/LL combination and again paid for it. Finally got the required combo and recovered the loss plus made enough to pay for the day.

However, had I taken the first long signal which resulted in my first stop out instead of the short, my day would have ended much sooner and with more profit.

Not happy with the failure to recognize what was happening.

One and done today. Woke up late, have to leave early....so it worked out. Of course it ran up to past my "normal" larger targets but since I have to run now, I suppose thats ok as well.

cheers.....

My heart is impure

I would like to thank those who trade without indicators for providing liquidity, although my conscience is bothering me.

I will get over it.

If only it were true!

Final chart:

Mistakes made early carried into the rest of the day. Instead of being one and done with 50+ticks, it took several cautious attempts to make back the mistakes and it took all my allotted time. Not how I want my trading day to go.

Lesson learned today, look at the previous day along with the current one to determine trend lines....just in case. I'm a short term term trader so multiple days aren't necessarily important every day, but looking just to the left of the chart would have saved me a lot of money today.

Cheers

Very near exhaustion today. Very late night last night, wife not sleeping which caused me to have a very restless night....nothing good comes from this:

Start over next week after I try to recover some of the sleep deprivation.
