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.

Evaluating Chat Rooms Just Got Easier

Like so many traders my journey to consistency has been a long and expensive path. If 95% of new traders wash out, the soul reason is not that trading is the hardest activity that any human can undertake. A large part of the "wash out " problem is the lack of quality education and mentoring. It is extremely hard for a new trader to sift through the snake oil salesmen trying to pick his pocket and find real help. Big Mike's is one of the few honest resources that I found.

It looks like Dr. Handley at the web site linked below has done a lot to sift through the junk and the marginal to find the chat rooms with real content and real trading accountability. I don't know that his work is the last word on the subject, but it sure is a good start.

I would like to know if anyone else has links to sources for OBJECTIVE analysis of various chat rooms or trading training programs. I think it would be grand if we could steer new traders to multiple sources to find real help and avoid the many pitfalls of "secret" systems, indicators, trade signals, etc.

This guy has been banned on futures.io (formerly BMT). Please be EXTREMELY CAREFUL if considering any advice from him.

Use the existing thread:

I am closing this duplicate thread.


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.
