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.

Kbit,

I had similar entry points but not exits Does Ichimoku try to keep you in trades as long as possible or? I know nothing about it.

@Vozdovac, Overall it gets you on average 80% of the move. I like it a lot combined with watching PA it's a good method.

There are a couple of webinar/trading videos here at futures.io (formerly BMT) that lay out how to use it. Manesh Patel did one of them and Chris Capre did one here as well, both of those guys are very good.

It's not a hard method to learn even though it may seem that way to the untrained eye.

Do you use default setting for ichimoku( 9,26,52)? What those red arrows indicating exactly, and does it work with renko 2 ticks bars?

Yes I use the default settings. The red arrows indicate the particular bar I entered on. It should work with Renko, I'm using Kase bars most of the time. I'm just looking for Price action after everything lines up so whatever it is in terms of bar type that works for you to tell you when to enter should be fine.

Try and back test it...scroll through some charts and see if it looks good or not. I think I tried Renko in the past but the Tradestaion renko are kind of crapolla, especially when compared to Rjays( I think that's his name, can't remember exactly) hybrid bars and his won't work with tradestation.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
1141.40 should be next point of resistance ....as you can see it's resting on the top of the cloud currently. If it drops down a bit that's fine but you know what I'm looking for short term.

In at the blue arrow and then short* at the red arrow. Could have gone long again at the next blue arrow( I didn't because I had to leave ) and would have been out at the shaded box....where it crossed the KS

* I got out of long and went short because ALL my charts were telling me to go short.

Edit: By the way that translates into 60 ticks just on the long I took...I'm really surprised after all this Ichimoku I'm posting here that I'm seemingly the only one that trades it...I guess you guys must be doing better than I am.

I'm not selling anything just pointing out how nice this is...don't need anything else.... That said, I do still look at a tick chart or two but when Ichimoku gives me something (which is pretty much everyday) I jump in.

I know there are those who look at fifty two different charts and correlations and all that other crap but why ?
Just my two cents...

@kbit, great to see you having success with Ichimoku. I played with it a bit but had mixed results, maybe I will look at it again with the Kase bars and see if that makes a difference. Thanks.

I second that sk8ter.

I was looking for the minute based kase bars for ninja and was unable to find them anywhere. I only found the range based. They didn't looks as nice as what kbit has here. Please let us know if you have better luck finding them sk8ter as I would like to try them against regular minute bars.

Thanks
