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.

I would agree with that sentiment, needs to bounce here or it goes to 49.50 in the next couple of hours. (and I would prefer the bounce/consolidation first to setup a new trade)

Are you targeting the 49.50 area? A flush down would break all meaningful resistance on the 60 minute chart and force a reaction to the mid to low 49s. That may be the trade...

My biggest issues with the small long is getting footing above 51.25. If it can manage that then I would feel better.

I was looking at 50.40 area but i am out now 51.21. FLUSH DOWN is more of a signal for me to determine size of a position on reversal and to determine if longs makes sense today.

I understand what you mean about the flushes. I feel my long is counter trend but the move could be sizeable just as a reaction (~$1 off the lows maybe). Then a retest of the ~51.20 support again (which I might add got pounded on this run down), would be the third play.

My current exit on the long is 51.88 but will be high mobile (higher or lower) depending on price action.

Trading

Mini FLUSH DOWNS . I use them to add to shorts. Algos, HFT are mostly interested in 20, 30 ticks in and out all day long. That's the reason i stopped scalping. I can not compete with mahines but one can make some reasonable assumptions as to how machie driven trading gets set up.
