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

Swing traders etc get confused when they see longs on Wednesday at 50.70 and then move to 51.90.
Longs on Thursday 51.10 and then move to 51.86. On friday short 50.77 and cover some 50.21.

As a wanna be trader posted some days ago- we are just throwing darts in the air.

Note: I am also short GC. If not short Keep $ chart front and center for next time.

Throwing darts blindfolded is even better while day dreaming. On any given day over a small SAMPLE anything can happen.

Quoting 
Ironically moments ago US labor secretary Thomas Perez said that the "quality of jobs is going up."

No it isn't, as anyone who spends even two minutes with the BLS report can find out.

Don't have two minutes? Here is the full breakdown. As the chart below shows, the three biggest single-category jobs added in February (because Professional services includes numerous occupations), were also the three lowest quality, lowest paying ones:

Leisure and Hospitality, added 66K jobs
Education and Health added 54K
Retail trade added 32K

Together these three job categories accounted for 152K jobs, or more than half the total February job gains. They also represent the lowest paid jobs in the US.

And that's why there is no wage increase.

Trading

" Will load up from the long side if CL flushes down to 50 area."

No loading up. Small longs. If CL clears ORH and then retest 50 area, will load up. Till then it's just a scalp and not worth taking extra risk for me.

Why i got out at 50.34 on longs? Uncle Jim Dalton says be ready for 3 scenarios every day. I am flat.

hi, maybe it's a dumb question on my part, but where do you get the Mid OR = 50.24? in my CHART Mid OR = 50.32 from ORH = 50.81 at the opening at 8:30 am ET through ORL = 49.82. THX

$ kept making new highs and there was no bid for CL. Shorted 49.75 after lunch to see if Push #3 of the move gets completed. Cover some 49.10 and had to bail out on ret at 49.43.
