Welcome to futures io.

(If you already have an account, login at the top of the page)

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. 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.

I got out BE. no good day.

I should have listened to myself this morning, when I had a doubt (in whatever)

  • my psychological and physical state: I'm feeling very well, but I have a doubt, I don't know what it is
  • my goal for the day: that I try to achieve: I want to wait for clear situations, and finding good stop positions

Summary of the day 2011-02-25

  • Performance: losses over losses
  • lots of bad luck today, I missed one good run which could have made my day, then only loosers and BEs
    But thats how trading works, you cannot win every day.
  • For next week: I should listen to myself, when in doubt, either trade only 1 contract (half position) or dont trade at all

have a great weekend everybody

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Monday 28., Feb. 2011

  • maximum risk (*): per trade $300, max $800 for the day
  • my psychological and physical state: very tiered, exausting weekend, today small position size
  • my goal for the day: today only watching the market, if situation and condition is clear and better I can enter a trade only in trend direction
(*) I had to adjust this, to fit my contract size, but its still about 1% risk

Summary of the day


I decided not to trade today, and I think it was a good decision. I couldnt feel what the market was doing, and my signals were completly wrong.
