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.

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.

Hi Bugsy,

I am really not thinking about a contest, just trying to inspire those that might need it, and hone my trading skills in the process.

Horst,

Thanks for the videos. Very informative.

Can you talk a little more about how you find your entries?

Thanks!


The 3 basic things that need be present are Area, BB setup, and Price Bar Pattern. They must all be aligned in a certain way. I really can't get into the finer details, as it revolves around releasing proprietary information. There is a lot I can't get into on the videos and don't/can't talk about. I am still a student and would hate to get thrown out on a technicality. Hope you will understand.

Horst

Traded the 6E for 1 trade getting in at the deep retrace, and exiting when it was having trouble breaking the 23% retrace on the higher time frame. Net of 2.8 nuggets. Then I traded the TF at the open and made 2 5 tick gifts 1 break even. I finally found the sweet spot and ran it down for almost 3 points. All in all a good day with a total of 4.3 nuggets.

This whole thread seems like one big advertisement for www.newfuturestrading.com

Don't like the smell of it...

Well what's the purpose in you showing these videos???

Just to show how many "nuggets" you make each day???

Why would someone want to watch these things if they don't have a clue what you are doing???

Let me ask you a question. If I started a journal and showed all of my trades every day, without explanations as to why I am entering or exiting, would you watch it???

I am not doubting the fact that you are making money. We can see that you are. This just smells funny to me because I don't see the point in showing trades without any explanation, and then I find out that you are a "student" of a vendor who is selling this method on another website.

I think most of the board here would agree with me.

If I were Big mike I would ask you to take your act elsewhere, but I'm not, so that is not for me to decide...

Hahahaha, silly rabbit, everyone has learned to trade from somewhere. "I am a student of a vendor?" What type of sense does that make. Do you honestly believe that everyone is flailing around aimlessly without a trading education. Probably so, and if that's the case, you have my sympathy. This journal is not for YOU, it's for ME. If someone wants to see my style, then they are welcome to watch, if not, they shouldn't come back here.

First you compliment my videos and say that they are very informative, and when I tell you honestly that I can't get into the finer points you show your other face. I am not here to teach you anything. If you want to watch the videos and pick up a few pointers, you have my blessing. If you are here to irritate me, I would appreciate you keeping your comments to yourself, or better yet, don't visit my journal.
