Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

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. To succeed, you need to surround yourself with the right support system, educational content, and trading mentors Ė all of which you can find on futures io, utilizing our social trading environment.

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.
  • 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.

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.

hey naka - thanks for your postings
have read your part two - as I read it: copy/paste from part one
Take it easy this weekend and

... R E L A X ...

Next week will bring some NEW movements

Cheers
GFIs1

thx, gfis1:

perhaps you already noticed that part 2 which supposedly contained a brief summary from part 1, before going on with part 2; has been scraped: mike said to go on with the original thread, part 1. i rather think the messiness contained in part 2 was due to soft ware problem rather than my own fallibility and frailness .... LOL

but then at this moment i also noticed another short video was missing from part 1 and part 2; so very annoying. will try to search and repost sometimes later.

this particular video showed multiplicity problems when trading several products at the same time, such as <just for starting>,

1--would you take the first setup that comes along, whichever product? or

2--would you take a wait and see attitude, perhaps the second setup of another product, would be more potent, hopefully or whimsically?

3--ok, while you already have 2 different trades going for you or against you; the third setup from the third product appears to be looming. would you focus on this third setup and pull the trigger to enter yet the third trade?

4--and what if, the fourth setup materializes, would you also take the fourth?

5--would a trader be able to maximally focus on four on going trades at the same time with equal and undivided attention given to all four positions?

will diligently search for that short video to some what complement the aforesaid questions, K?

have a restful and safe weekend everyone.

have a restful and safe weekend everyone.

this video is exh2012-222 which required about 3 min to view but required a few hours to finish up; in order to save viewers' time, several inactive segments were arbitrarily deleted.

apparently, there are other numerous difficulties associated with trading multiproducts at the same time, which i am certain, are already apparent to everyone with or without having to view the accompanying video.

so enjoy the video and critique if you so wish. am always open to additional observations and suggestions with appreciation and thankfulness for whatever thoughts left here.

have a wonderful and safe weekend everyone.

If you post the video in FLV or MP4 format, people can view them without downloading them now.

Mike

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.

I would like to add a WARNING TO ANYONE VIEWING THIS VIDEO... Be sure your volume is near 0 before starting to play this. In fact, just mute, or skip the thing entirely.
