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.

Watch me turn $150 into $10,000 in 3 months or less!

Hi everyone, and welcome to my trading Journal.
I have been a lurker at this wonderful community for years, and now having witnessed so many arguments about what is
and what is not possible, I am going to give you all the gift that will make your journey 1000X easier, the gift of knowing that it can be done.

Starting with a measly $150, I am purchasing the Top Step Trader 30K combine, and I am going to get it funded and built up to 10K in the next three months.

I trade using a discretionary model with rules just focusing on my risk.

For the most part, I probably do not know much more than any of you all here, I just know what is possible, and so I am here to show it to you so you can now know it too. I believe if someone had shown this to me in the beginning I would have evolved much faster, so I am now paying forward to you.

IMO, this game is 99.9999% psychology.

Stay tuned for more...

- Hunter Bidgood

Day 1


Day 1 -
Equity = $380
Max DD = $50
(note this DD will get larger, I am riding a razors edge with this 1500 max DD, but I have the skills to make it through)

Interesting stuff. If you don't mind a question, how did you find a broker willing to let you trade futures with $150?

I think you'll find he payed $150 to enter Top Step's combine, where he trades SIM and not real money. If he passes the combine though they then give him a funded account. So then he's trading other peoples money.

Thanks, I missed that part. Too much attention to the $150!

Hello,

It would be nice if you posted your trades for the day. Maybe posting your charts with the trades marked up.

Take care

OK, I'm always willing to follow something new.

If you want to inspire people, it may be helpful to do a couple of things:

1. Post your TST dashboard every day, showing the official TST results for the Combine. This is pretty much standard for Combine journals and validates your results.

2. Discuss and show your trades, as has been suggested already. This will help others understand how you approach and trade the market and will add value.

Just a couple of suggestions. Hope you do well with the Combine.

Bob.
