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.

It appeared to be about a 25 tick move in 2 seconds...

Was anyone just affected by that weird print at around 9:00:01? (central time)

I was about 3 ticks into profit, had my stop 15 ticks away and there was a major print up that took about a second, but was right back down...went from around 759.3 all the way up to 762.

It took out my stop, and then 2 seconds later was way down at 758.8

that's what always happens during major news releases.

better be careful.

I'm guessing it was the CB Consumer Confidence number that came out at 10am...

Yeah that's it.....
Aside from that, be careful until we get either under 756 or over 761.5 it's just a mess in between those areas

I'm looking for 750.7 at this point and maybe 747 after that.....looking like it just wants to keep chopping even after getting under 756 so......

What a mess.....it has to stay below 756......I'm not in but am waiting, probably will miss it but I want a pinbar or something and being that lunch is coming up nothing will likely happen at this point.
