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

Something i do not bet against with DOE A up unless a nice FLUSH UP shows up. One time is OK for a natural pullback after 240 ticks move and thats why i shorted 52.18. I am trading CLJ5 contract.

Bottom line i am not going long at highs ( anything above 52.30 is high for me to try new long) even if she is going to 53. I will get my ticks if there are left any per my RULES.

I bought 51.68, closed 52.70. It was so tempting. LOL

Today's data/news

Relative newbie to Oil, experience with NG, but I'm sitting on the sidelines trying to gain some experience/knowledge on days like today. With EIA inventories rising to high levels to echo API reports yesterday, I was expecting a bit of a bear market today. Any insight as to what I'm seeing happen today? Tons of volume over the last few hours as well. I apologize in advance for the naivete, but I'm beginning to get wrapped up in this! Thanks...

This is known as BAD NEWS but GOOD PRICE ACTION. In this scenario trading opportunities are more vs if price action was as expected. Price action to the down side most probably would have been muted as CL already had moster sell off during prior day and subsequent Globex session.

Always keep daily, weekly and monthly true range in mind. Some traders look at 1, 2 and 3 standard deviation moves in mind to put on trades. It's very hard to inititate a new short after price already has moved 3 standard deviation etc. Which one is easier to short? 50.20 or 52.70? Sell GREEN BARS and BUY RED BARS.

Trading

Its not that simple but as a general Rule. Buy Red - Sell Green. Sell Green ONLY in macro bearish trend.

Nice rule of thumb there.

On balance

Looking at current price action in this ascending triangle it is interesting to see that most of the momentum has been to the down side...and that the areas of congestion have been near the highs...

Congestion or consolidation below the high may be building a case for a break up...certainly the higher lows support this...

Yet on each of the falls the momentum has been to the downside...makes me think price patterns can fail...

CME has some great education material and I would suggest you start there.

http://www.cmegroup.com/education/getting-started.html

I highly recommend you go through all of those. If you are lazy and don't intend to go through all of them then at least go through all of the Jeff Quinto "Fundamentals" section.

Moving averages are awesome at showing you the past trend. Worthless at telling you anything that is going to happen next, including trend.

You admit that you are still in the "learning curve", whatever that is, then you shouldn't so quickly reject what others are telling you.

I have been trading a really long time and still learn something new every single day, actually every single trade.

Well, so far nobody has told me anything except for you. Thank you for the advice and I will thoroughly check out the CME site. I am only on this site to gain an education on trading and I have already picked up some good pointers.

I don't know how people are trading on this board, are they trading just to grab a few ticks intraday are they going out one, two, or three weeks out?

I, personally, think that Gold is in a much better trading range that oil, which along with the dollar are both currently moving sideways. and I think will continue to do so for some time.

And no, I don't buy your argument that moving averages aren't valid for the future.
It seems to be quite easy to talk very flippant on this board.
