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.

Friday rule ;-)
this one works normally very well.
So today it is better to stay at the sideline.

Week 3 result

This week had three trades

One positive and two negative trades:

Positive (8 points)
Negative (-4 - 7 points)

Total weekly result minus 3 points

Two days without a trade to protect capital which was a good decision.
