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.

Lol. I wouldn't know how to sign in anyway.

If that's a YouTube login, I either don't have one, or don't know it. I don't think I ever used one for YouTube....

But I can't see it either.

Lance,
I was checking the broker Optimus futures.. Probably you are using ninja trader for charting and other platform for execution ? Does this delay your reaction time if you want to get in or out of a trade ? I think I may be overwhelmed with 2 different platforms? How do you handle both platforms ?
Thanks
Amin

I chart and execute from Ninja..although that option may not be available to new customers. You might have to ask Matt about it.

That's strange..I just checked my settings and the video said Public...so I'm not sure why it isn't working.

Thank You

Hi Lancelottrader,

last week i became aware about this excellent Thread. Just wanted to thank you and let you know this thread has slightly changed my perspective on trading systems.

When i started short term trading forex i began with a similar system consisting basically of some moving averages and a supertrend. However i was not successful with that system so i did basically skip it.

Looking at this thread (and i read it from the beginning) i was quite curious to see how you handle such a system and whether you gonna succeed. And you did

I appreciate sharing all ups and downs in this thread and showing how you are getting a grip on it.

I like how you emphasize whether good market conditions are in place which are needed to make this trading approach successful. Well, some might say: This clear and simple, and i did know that but now i feel i do understand now

Thanks for that
Michael

New experiment

The last week or so, along with my live CL trading...I have been conducting a SIM experiment on Cl as well.
After back testing almost a year of charts..plus many days of Replay trades...I have seen so many days of much larger trending moves of 100-200 ticks or more. Plus I watched my recorded sessions enough to know what the conditions often look like when these moves take place. So, I have been going for much bigger targets in my SIM experiment and taking some Rampage (indicator) signals on a 1 minute chart and riding out trades for very large moves. So far, I am liking the results. I am having several days already of making over 100 ticks. Yes, it's only SIM..however I am letting the signals get me out or my target is hit. So, it's nothing I wouldn't be able to replicate live.

I think I may be taking targets often that are way too small. I often allow countertrend noise to shake me out of trades that have huge potential. Now, it may be too soon to tell...but if in a month I keep getting good results..I may start going for bigger targets in my live trades as well.. If not, I can still get good results from what I am doing now.

I don't like to change things if I am seeing some consistency,,,however I do have days where I hit my max drawdown and it can become very challenging to hit my weekly goal. At this point, it is just an experiment..but I am already seeing some benefit from managing larger target trades. Also, I am still keeping my entries low risk. The main difference is my minimum target is 50 ticks. I either get 50 or the signal change(or EMA breach) takes me out. Some I am letting go 100 ticks or a signal change. It's very interesting because some trades seem to stall at 20 ticks. They will just sit there for a long time and do nothing...and then suddenly take off and go 100 ticks. I just stay in until the software gets me out. My stops are generally never more than 15 ticks..so the risk/reward on some of these trades is excellent. But I figure if I can nail several 50 tick winners along with a few 100 tick moves (some signals have given 300 tick moves!) I could be looking at some weeks making close to 200 ticks. This would really take me to another level.
I will report the results of the SIM trades in about a month. I will, of course continue live trading using my same method.

If you're trading multiple lots already, just convert one or two of them into runners....take one off at +50 and let the other go until it either hits 100+ or an opposite signal....You should like the results.....not as good as being all in all out at +100 but still, if you grab one of those a week along with 2-3 50 tick trades, along with the profit from the first scale out, you should be doing good!!!

Congrats on making it....it was a long haul but you made it....
