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

I second Fat Tail's opinion.
I know Beth very well and one of the decent persons you can find here.
It is not about getting some indicators from somewhere but how you make your final setup, which is her own.

The Trading Universe is a jungle. You can feed on other traders by trading against them or by educating them. In the end it is a question at what you are better. Some traders also like to have a second leg besides trading. Running a website or a forum provides you with a lower, but stable income, which is not the case for trading.

So let me resume the facts:

(1) Beth is a nice person.

(2) She did not steal any indicators, but developed her own set of tools.

(3) She managed to set up a website and contracted some customers. She has something to teach, she is polite and takes care of her clients.

(4) I really do not know whether she is a good trader or whether her system works, because I have not spent the time to check it. I know that 90% of all systems sold via the internet do not make money and of course I have second thoughts, as I have always second thoughts.

(5) Some of the other members of Big Mike's are jealous, as they think that they are better traders than Beth, but these other members did not manage to set up a website.

So what?

Maybe you're right. Beth did accomplish a new vendor site and has customers. I would have liked to do something similar starting a site maybe related to another type of business. It would test my conscience if I started a site selling indicators when I know I hadn't traded successfully nor have ever did with them. But it's an accomplishment to start a successful business where 80% fail today.

I had worked as phone tech support for a set of products which one of its core components I knew were made with cheap dubious quality control, or at worst knew they were 2nd hand 1st testing trial factory rejects but would maybe last a year before it was assumed the customer would buy an upgraded model anyways or call for a replacement. All of us who worked at the place knew it, and we were all a party to it still. Today's business climate is severely desperate for any industry. And as a trader today, I have to live with knowing I'm still doing an endeavor considered gambling by the majority of the public and even my relatives. And even if percentage wise I'm not really making profits off of newbie traders, I'm still riding the coattails of, and trying to pick up money left on the table for a small opportune moment by unscrupulous bankster trading arms and armies of HFT computer arrays of trading firms. So quoting Fat tails, "so what"?
