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

ES NQ YM TF Active Traders Journal

This Journal is created to provide an ideal place for those who trade the Index futures (ES NQ YM TF) to generate and exchange ideas, as well as post LIVE CALLS. You're well advised to follow a few simple rules regarding DOs and DON'Ts:

1) Do post trades in Realtime, including entries, exits and preferably a stop (Don't post unrealistic stops). Realtime is within 1 minute of trade execution.

2) Do not post prior trade execution reports, this is not the journal for that, this journal is for realtime trades posted < 1 minute of execution.

3) Opening Trades - all opening trades MUST be posted in realtime. No exception.

4) Closing Trades - Likewise, it is advisable that all closing trades be posted in realtime

5) Do provide market analyses, be they your own personal insights or breaking news.

6) Do post charts, whenever possible, for visual analysis.

7) Don't post off-topic rubbish or nonsense. Occasional jokes and humor is fine

8) Don't get embroiled in flame wars: No personal attacks or inflammatory remarks are allowed.

9) Don't preach how others should trade and refrain from condescension of any kind.

10) Sim Trades - Without sounding too coy, I'm going to opt for a "don't ask, don't tell" policy on this matter. However, there is nothing wrong with sim trading per se. Nor should anyone feel ashamed about it. Sim trading is a great way for beginners to learn the ropes. Be that as it may, sim traders MUST also abide by the same rules outlined above.

A little about me

Most of my trades start out as scalps, with 3 or 4 scale outs, stop is moved to break even as soon as possible. I aim for 1:4 R/R. I trade price action with momentum, market profile, order flow & micro Price action. I don't use any indicators. I mostly use small stops but with some trades I may scale in over a small range. My goal is to increase trade size not to capture large swings.

You learn by observation & natural assimilation of a trading style. I would like to observe other traders who challenge me.

I want to see real time trades posted. plenty of after the fact analysis out there. I have limited time, so most of my posts will be brief.
