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.

Leo Gindin Training

Leo Gindin offers training in trading the Russell 2000. Like Bill McDowell, he has no website. He advertises in classified ads:

Goal $1000+/day
Trading only few hours Russell 2000.
No previous knowledge is required, trading futures is a skill.
Free training in exchange for profit sharing.

So I emailed to see what his offer was. He offers 2 day live training for $5000 OR free training by webinar for 25% of your profit. My first question was why didn't he just increase his contracts and get 100% more income. His answer was that he wanted to create a residual income so that he could do other things. Odd, considering only a few hours a day was needed for $1000+ per day.

The catch comes in that you need his indicators that he leases for $500 per month! It made more sense now. I see it as essentially an offer to sell his indicators disguised as free training. I figure he hooks people into paying for his indicators for at least a couple of months, netting him $1000 per person. Getting just one per week, brings him $4000 per month. Not bad, and that's his residual income.

Anyway, when I question him on the cost of the indicators, which by looking at the chart he sent, seems like a few moving averages and a simple oscillator, the tone of the reply got a lot more curt.

Maybe someone else would like to investigate further or has a different experience.

Someone that doesn't have a website and advertises in classifieds seems to be to be clearing targeting uneducated, uninformed people and limiting the negative publicity that can be linked or associated to a website.

That is your first sign to run, far far away, as quickly as possible and don't even waste a second of your time on such junk.

Your second sign was someone that places so much importance on indicators that he needs to sell them as "valuable".


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.
