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

" I will hit flat tab on my shorts if after API report CL gets above 48.30 area "

Ok, then what? Longs and longs. Out 49.07 Flat. I am probably leaving another 60-100 ticks on the table but CL has to clear 49.50 area first and i gave enough time.

Sometimes I am really good at daydreaming---I am not stubborn and don't mind stops being hit on CL. CL made a 100 tick run and I thought at least a pullback to 4850 before I can load up to long side. Guess what no pullback just a straight 45 degrees up trendline on first day of month. It's ok to be wrong but not OK to be stubborn.

Trading

When there is No FLUSH UP then pullbacks are for longs.

Long 49.46. Out some 50.04, 50.37.

CL the beast!

Days like today reminds me why I love (and hate) trading crude. Just when everyone thinks it's gonna zig, it zags. You want volatility? How about a 300 tick move in half a day? It really is the perfect daytrading vehicle for people with short attention span (or an "outie", as per Mark Cook).

Days like this used to terrify me in my earlier days. Got burnt over and over again, stops run over like it was swiss cheese. Thankfully, with proper respect and lots of practice, it does get easier. Think of it as trading with a finger firmed pressed on the fast forward button. It's the same setups and PA, just need to react faster. After all, it's still the same human emotions in play, with the added bonus of arriving at the destination much earlier.

Now that we hit 50 again. Your move next, bears. I'm watching 49.15 for possible bounces.

It's not important leave ticks on the table, the important is take the right trade and you call it.....

HD = Hidden Divergence

Momentum is putting in lower low, but the price is not.....a sign of strength to the upside.

There were several on the 5min chart as well today.
