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

Hey buddy- I am so worried that you are going to grind yourself to pieces. It seems that every day is a repeat... I know you didn't ask but I think you should seriously consider non leveraged markets for a while. I only say this out of concern for you as I know you are putting in the effort....

I am really glad to hear that- please share your successes too on here- it's ok to be a winner!! I read your journal every day to see how you are doing and it just seems like you are constantly having a rough go at the markets per what you write so highlight some of the good going forward so we don't have to worry about you

To succeed one must be able to determine his and his opponent's strengths and weaknesses, and to play the battle to his strengths and the enemy's weaknesses.
