Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members.

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 – 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 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.

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.

Common Sense

I have no idea who have comon sense or not. Neither i am interested to know except traders i talk shop from time to time. These posts are meant to keep reminding what is important for me. Nothing more, Nothing less.
Since, this being a public journal all kinds of readers come and take what ever they want or do not want. Even if they have no desire they still show up. Some count ticks all day and wonder when PRINTING press will stop. Someone spent their own precious time and calculate as to how much i have made just this year. This individual seems pretty unhappy ( just guessing) and probably will be more pissed off as i ignored his inquiry. I have no intentions to piss someone off but some people can not seems to get out of their own way.

The most common one seems to be have been around for years but has ZERO contribution to futures.io (formerly BMT) community in general except one liners, free advice, or something should be this or that at futures.io (formerly BMT) etc. Luckliy it does not affect me except when i get an email like the one i got recently about someone doing calculations as to how much i have made YTD.

Except select few, 90% of my interaction with different traders has been +ve. Following is an example of not trading with common sense. I had the least amount of common sense for a long time in trading and from time to time i get off track.

Trading

And some trades with Common Sense. Added to shorts in CL. As far as trading goes there are many aspects of common sense. One being trading with size so that mind does not loose thinking ability. It does not matter what kind of trading limit one has. If it can not be used properly, it will KILL you.

I can assume you had a good day just by your response. CONGRATULATION. Don't be pissed off ( i know you dont, this is for select few) when you are having a bad day and someone else is doing well. Generally misery leads tot more misery. Being happy is the goal.

NOTE: Expecting to see fewer lines on your chart soon.

Trading

Short 92.22. Cover some 91.85. What? There was support at 92, there were buyers there on Tuesday. That was on Tuesday. Today is Thursday.

I do not mind shorting into so called support or going long at so called resistance. Stay with the trend and if joining the trend late ( like short 92.22 ) just size it properly and be aware of potential gains left per your time frame.

NOTE: Switched to CLX4 contract today.

when did you switch? at the CL open or mid-day? i made a trade earlier on 10-14 when the volume on 10-14 was > 11-14. everybody plays the rollover differently.

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
