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

And I should mention the source:

Twitter / TopstepTrader: Top Net P&L ...

Man, nothing like a publicly viewable leader board to keep ya acting right

Also, it may be obvious, but the 'k' prefix gives you the trader's daily loss limit. And therefore the various account size being traded (50K, 100K, or 150K).

Stupid question: is the "loss" number for the combine given ($3K for the $150K account for example) the max loss below the initial balance of the account, or per day?

Per day. And you can lose more than that, but if you do the rest of your combine is basically just practice. That's why on the losing end of the spectrum you'll see so many within a few dollars of the DLL - nobody wants to get knocked out

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

@josh

3000 is a single day loss limit. So if they started with 150,000 this morning and hit 147,000 at noon the account would be locked for the rest of the session.

And if you lose $2999.99 you're okay, but $3000.00 or more and you are not considered for funding, regardless of how you do afterward, correct?

That would be correct.

That would be correct.

And that is just for that combine. Once it is complete, the slate is clean and you are eligible for funding again.

POOF! Done.

Undoubtedly, you can find some ideas and possible best practices from the top performers list. But you can definitely get an idea of what the other side is doing when it comes to less-than-best practices:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).



That hurts, man. Some of those guys are just days into their combine, and they are already out of it for this go-around. I don't know if it comes across yet, but this ain't an easy gig.

It is great to see guys pulling 10k days on just 10 cars. That's awesome. It really is and I hope to see more futures.io (formerly BMT)'ers on that kind of list. But part of what that dude did was NOT do stuff that knocked him out of the the race. Stuff that was common on the other list.

If you want to obsess about anything, obsess about risk.

Is the DLL net or gross? A couple of those at the bottom of the list maybe thought it was gross, and didn't factor in commissions.

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)
