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.

If I see a good set up 20 or 30 mins. before a news release I will try and grab 2 or 3 ticks , being sure to be out before news release .

@heclara, I'm new to looking at bonds. What do you consider to be a good setup? What timeframes do you look at? Are you mainly trading pullbacks? thanks for your input.

You really need to look at charts and find something that fits your way of trading , everyone is a little different . Just because something works for me doesn't mean it will work for you . I use 1 and 3 min. charts quite often , and a 15 min. chart for trend direction . I also like a 377 tick chart . Yes , I really like trading pull backs. Hope it helps

Futures Edge on FIO
If the 61 fib line is broken for any length of time it probably spells and end to anymore up trend for a time at least . If it jumps off that 61 fib line then that is a whole new story . The bulls may take over again .

Nope...

It will probably waffle around until the US Prop desks can get a chop. Look for a bottom...the Greek thing wont be solved this week. Markets can be slow to act but once they do....
