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

Have to stop letting FEAR tell me to cut my winners, to avoid risks

It is a learning process for me.

SIM day: Accident at first on purpose later.


Oh forgot to mention in my journal that I leapt for joy after realizing that I was in chart trader not my cash account after losing $166.65 on my first trade. Just something about today was a tad off from the start, but then I went to the #1 trading rule... Trade Well not to make money. I did the best that I could from there out. I think that maybe not having a hard stop in for trades #3 and 4 immediately may have been a bad practice and will have to work on that too in the future.

Take care.

Now if you want to see a good video about hot to spot possible entries and then not take them here is one that is a bit boring below. This habit has to stop next week.

Ain't pretty but it is what I trade. Now if I can just keep better focused.
Hardest part to trading is the six inches between my ears.

Trend Trading for Dummies...

Yepper's there actually is a book out there by that name.
I'm slowly going through the book as I really have found that Dr. Barry Burns teaches and writes the way I like to learn. I am sure that we all have instructors and mentors along the way that have struck a cord with us.

I am attaching a zip file of the links to the extras you can download from the ForDummiesWebsite.

If you like what you read then maybe you may also like to get the book. So far it is a great read and this is even after taking all of Barry's "Top Dog Trading" courses.

Kick the tires and see what you think of his writing.

If you like it you may also like the book. I find that the "For Dummies" books are anything but.

Here is my video at the end of the trading day... Mostly a bunch of ranting about lack of having trading muscles etc....

Have a super rest of your week.
