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.

Welcome to those of you coming here from my blog as well as the members here on the forum (I know some of you are both).

I'm not trying to do anything fancy here, just journaling my trades and thoughts, and going through the process of improving my trading.

I want to take a moment to give a sincere “thank you” to Big Mike for all the work he puts into making this a supportive and informative place for us to share our passion for trading.

I also want to give a sincere “thank you” to the many traders here who are continually sharing their knowledge, experience and wisdom – much of the time with excruciating patience.

And now, let the journey begin...

Quick Summary
Quick Summary Post


Quoting 
"It's a fundamental shift in attitude that accounts for their success,
not some brilliant realization about the market, as most people erroneously assume.

This erroneous assumption is prevalent among traders simply because very few of them really understand,
at the deepest levels, just how critical a component attitude is in determining one's success."

Complicated?


Complicated? No. Easy? Debatable.

Pullback to overnight resistance (resistance becomes support) in an uptrend. Took profit a few ticks before next possible resistance level (minor swing high). You'll note from the DOM times (and color - blue) that these are sim trades.

Thanks V. I've been reading your journal over the past couple of days and really enjoy it. I don't trade options, but what you do/say regarding trading in general is really invaluable to anyone who will actually "listen" and try to absorb "the message," whether it's options, futures, stocks, etc. Thanks for continuing with it, sharing it in this forum, and being supportive of others like me.

Trading Office Pictures

I like seeing other trader's offices. @bijeremiad started a thread asking for pictures of trading desks. I added mine here. Enjoy.

Weekly Stats

I got the layout/idea for this from Forexbird and after modifying it for my purposes, used it extensively last year.

It turned out to be extraordinarily helpful for me because, despite the fact that I was unhappy with the way I felt about my trading/performance, the numbers were telling me a different story.

They were showing me that, over time, I was not only net profitable (using a simulated account) with my trading (despite mistakes, stupid entries, etc), but showed me how it was being achieved. It gave me much more confidence in my “abilities” and the motivation to continue forward.

It provides me with not only my P/L, but a valuable quick snapshot of information like my max drawdown for the week, average win/loss, and most importantly my Expectancy. And it shows me where I may need to make some improvements (that Avg W:L is pretty low this week...).

I'm starting it again here with this week's numbers so I can get my head back into the game and press on.
