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 want to thank FT71 for his time today. Below is the recording of today's session.

Mike

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)

Hmmm, I just downloaded a Nvidia driver for my desktop with no problem. I'll give it another try in a few minutes.

Yeah, mine kept failing around 116-118MB on Chrome & Firefox on my laptop. Failed on Chrome on PC as well (around 126MB), but it eventually worked on FF on the PC.

How would you suggest managing the trade with a 1 lot

How would you suggest managing the trade with a 1 lot

With out a doubt, trading with 1 contract is much harder than 3 or 4. But it seems to be a normal progessing step from 1 to multiple. Then with that is risk managment and giving the trade some room to breath.
I believe it is all about waiting for your setup to mature and then execute with confidence. Whether it is 1 or multiple lots.

Don't want to clutter the thread too much, but wanted to give a thanks to FT and to Mike. Great information, lots of wisdom in these 30 minutes without hype, as usual.
