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.

Hi All,

Finished the day.
Still SIM trading.
A bit sloppy today to say the least.
Managed to come close to my daily limit both ways, and actually that is a little like the way the market was moving today.

Took 13 trades in all today.

Wow doing VIDEOS is a major time CRUNCH...
I can really start to relate to some of those that do daily videos before a camera...
Less edits needed the better.
Oh todays video is 21 MINS so you may want to grab some Pepsi, beer, and popcorn if you watch...
Wow and Shorter TAKES... 21mins takes to long to process and upload.
Note to self: VIDEOS shoot for 5mins or less...
Still waiting to upload to site...

Okay will keep less lengthy in the future... sorry. Long Day

Hi All,

Thirteen trades yesterday positive results, a bit more losey goosey on the trading.
Today a bit more detached but following most of my rules and max loss hit.
Hmmm well still SIM trading, still learning new stuff daily so things must be going okay

Journal and video attached.

FRIDAY Tomorrow.

Last try for the day.
Today is turning into one of those days, even though I didn't take a trade I am still at my desk.
Time to go.
TGIF.
Stuff is attached.
My journal I've deleted one way or another three times now.

Trying to do to many things at once...

Have a great weekend all.

Hi All,
Another NTD here.
Saw the SPIKE Down, but with the low VOL I stayed away as could just as easily spike back up on the day.
I was expecting about three more ticks of movement before the bounce off the lows of the day, and then more of a pull-back after the close. Globex should be interesting today.

Have a great evening.

Futures Edge on FIO
Hi All,
Another NTD, welcome to the end of summer.
Was nothing but a slow grind lower today off a 13.75 POINT GAP lower on OPEN.
Have a fun time watching it all unfold though.

Hi All,

Another SIM trading day.
Working to keep more calm.
Took only two trades today.
Forgot to journal the analysis, attached as JPG.

Hot in San Diego.

Some day I will get that High Score again on Deal or No Deal...

Hi All,

Another SIM trade Day.
Only one trade and only one Tick today.
You might say I got TICKED off.... ROFL
It was true though, so I knew it was better to watch for the rest of the day.


One more day before the Holiday Weekend.

Hi All,

Non-Trading Day.
It was just to darn HOT in my house. One of these days I'll have to get some air conditioning
Have a great three day weekend everyone.

Will not be trading or following market other than a final look after getting back from appointments on Tuesday so I guess this is a four day break for me.

Hi All,

Didn't trade or post yesterday. Bit of a busy day.

Yesterday:
Oncology 6 years cancer free, and now I get to be seen only by my primary so I don't have to go up to La Jolla for cancer checkups
Went shooting archery for first time in twenty plus years yesterday as well. Getting the bug again.

Today:
Just didn't have it in me today. Non-Trading day after missing the first big PUSH in the morning.

Hope everyone else did great today.
