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.

Trading

One ist test of 51 area during lunch hour Shorted 50.97. Out 50.54. Now sitting on hands. This slow up move, i have no idea where CL is going or will stop.

if i see a FLUSH up - where ever it is- it should be around 150 ticks to the upside, i will try short. If CL just goes up 40 tics, pullsback 20 ticks and keep up march, there is no trade for me.

I am dreaming about quick up moves with massive Volume till exhausation bar shows up. A short at that point with size for relatively quick 50-80 ticks will be one of the easier trade.

Sometimes I scalp the pit close other times not (obviously not right now)

If you're going to trade the close, put on your jock strap, grab the saddle horn and don't polish your boots 'cause you're gonna to get 'em dirty

Do 'ya think this guys ass puckered? (and selling in the middle of the bar, but I'm fairly certain that was not the case at the time of hitting the GO button, or maybe it was an algo,,,,)

5114 was not trading at the time of the screen capture as noted by the time stamp on the time and sales and the clock in the window

No trade for me. I need either one side , longs or shorts to be trapped to take a trade. Without IMBALANCE there is no opportunity worth trading.

Well it took a little longer than I expected but it did come back, maybe has a few more cents in it as well.

Did the opening drive qualify as a flush up? It went about 150 ticks or so I think. I didn't have a long set up either....price didn't go down far enough for me but I did short near the top....closed early but logical location for me......but I'm curious if the flush up you wanted was AFTER the morning drive to a price somewhere much higher than that? Or was that the flush you were waiting for?

Yes, opening drive qualify as a Flush up and i shorted it. I was looking for another flush up into the closeto take next short.
