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.

2 years here on BMT - a result comparison

Last day of the year - time to look back on the two years:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Both years show nearly the same final result although the fact that markets developped differently.
In 2012 every week had mostly 5 trades. In 2013 the trades went down to 3 per week. The rule
change was quite effective as two needless trades during every week could be skipped.
At the moment there are no optimizing effects in sight - so the rule set will be the same for starting
into 2014.

Have a good start into next year!

Way to go, nicely done.

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)

New Year 2014

Happy New Year!

The Friday Dax trade of the first half week of 2014 will NOT take place:
Thursday's day range in the Dax is with 231 points (short) way out!
What a beginning of the year ;-)
So not trade before Monday.
Have a great weekend
