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.

Here is the webinar recording:



Please allow two hours for YouTube to finish encoding.

Sorry about the dogs at the last minute of the webinar, a neighbor was honking his horn repeatedly (like 20 times - it's a cultural thing) and my dogs couldn't take it anymore!

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.

You talked today about error tracking being a big differentiator between retail and prop/pro traders. Can you give some examples of errors which when tracked can really help a retail trader like me (who doesn't track any errors and can only guess that you mean more than fat thumb errors)? Does the platform (stage5) help?

Thanks for the fantastic webinars!

only 35mins in.... what a $!*&#-king great webinar

FT - you totally nail it when communicating what trading is about. For many of us, it takes friggin years to work that stuff out, so I think you've done a great service to traders of all experience levels

@Big Mike - this webinar should go in the "where do I start" or similar

Some contributors, more than others, make futures.io (formerly BMT) a very unique place for traders.

@FuturesTrader71 is one of them.

Great webinar TY.

renko

morad,

Thank you again for the great webinar. You mentioned that you are utilizing a 4 tick renko chart for executing at the moment due to market conditions. what is the determining factor/process on how you decide whether or not to switch from a 2-4 renko? Also, I would appreciate some clarification that you do not adjust your zig zag study when you adjust your renko setting, correct?

I was out of practice during my webinar introduction, plus a little off my game due to the technical problems. I forgot to ask everyone to give a 'thumbs up' on YouTube if you find the video useful. Please take the time to do this, it helps us.

@FuturesTrader71

Nice commentary today in unusual activity market surveillance

What is oil telling us?

Shit is about to hit the fan?

In months (weeks) what's the over and under?

Thank you

@FuturesTrader71

I am interested in what type of risk management practices, and procedures are taken at an institutional level. What types of things are firms looking at if they are managing several desks, with dozens of strategies and instruments? Other than VaR, cVAR, Expected Shortfall, instrument or strategy correlation? I would like your input on what its like to manage such a large operation?

Hi Trey,

Great question, but I'm the wrong guy to answer. I prefer to respond to things that I have direct experience with and know. Institutional risk management is not an experience I have had.

Pretty sure a lot of sharp guys are on futures.io (formerly BMT) and can provide an answer.

Cheers!

Is he using Investor RT for Orientation, planning etc.. and
S5 Trading Platform for executing the orders, or is he also using Investor RT for trading.
Is it possible to trade from IRT in the charts.

Hi Bratte,

I use IRT for charts, IQFeed for data, S5 Trader for execution, S5 Trade Analyzer for position management.

However, you can use IRT for charts and execution while using the S5 Trader for your feed and DTNMA for historical data.

I hope that makes sense.
