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.

-- Big Mike

@Big Mike
Chipped into the defense fund, wish you the best!
Read the charge sheet what a bunch of crap.
Clearly shows that you were fair and let everyone view there point of view.
Well everyone except for AMP as they were kicked off for numerous reasons.
From the looks of it I would first put in a motion to bifurcate this case as you should not have to be responsible for each one of us and our actions outside of futures.io (formerly BMT).
I am sure that you kept all your past transactions with AMP and already have your defense ready.
Just a case of beating up on the little guy if you ask me.

Hi All,
Another death so back to SIM again.
Didn't know how would react this time as it was my father who died yesterday.
Also no weekly recap as only traded the one day this week. Watched on the other days.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Bill, sorry to hear about your loss. You should consider taking some time away from everything just to reflect and regroup on the important things in life.

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.
6)

Hi All,

Great week, and learning a lot. Thanks to everyone for the help and support.

What I did well today: * I traded well before 12 EST *Entries and exits were planned.

What could I have done better: * Finish morning check sheet before even thinking about trading. Give myself more of a break. * Always trade with STOPS IN PLACE. * Trade with the market.
* Never think I am smarter than the market. * Not trade UPSET no mater how much I think I have it together. Eventually it will show in my trading. *Half listened to advice of others. I SIM trade vice trading with real money, however I should take the time off from trading all together.

What will I do tomorrow to make things better: * Will take time over the weekend for myself.
* Ensure check sheet finished before trading. * Work on taxes. * Work on grieving and planning my life.

Oh and yes fully aware that my head was just not into trading this week. There is just something cathartic though about doing SIM some days. Like today left off stops on last five SIM trades, went from a winning day to total losing day, however I learned a lot and reinforce that breaking the rules often comes with penalties. Also should take time off, just may, but either way will work through my issues and fully take ownership of the way I have been trading. That way I will be able to work on it all to become better in the future.
