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.

Looking for a blip up to near today's high (not sure about it happening) then looking for a return to 1128.
Might drop overnight but am going to wait. Not 100% sure about this one but that's my plan.

Dropped like a rock, hope someone out there got it. I missed it

Looking for a move up to at least 57.6 and then will be looking for a short back down to 36.8
Not necessarily a straight drop of course...that's the plan at the moment

Obviously going back and forth between these two...look for a breakout.

Can't trade or follow the TF right now, didn't want to pay the fee right now.

Looking at IWM, this is a massive wedge for the last few days. They can be frustrating and expensive to trade

Wish you the best of luck on catching that breakout. They will probably start it overnight

TF is going back to the CME next year, Fees will almost certainly be much lower. I would guess there will be a lot more interest in it at that point, seems like I'm one of very few that stick with it.

BTW I just went long gold from 13.5...see what happens

I know, and I can't wait. I am going to bite the bullet soon and sign up for ice data. Just sucks to pay my broker data and for IQFeed. I want to trade the final wave into the elections.

The TF has been a bear to catch the larger swings since the Feb low. Just straight up to the moon.

Just a thought here...a while back(2015) TF was dragging it's ass as the ES was making new highs then the ES bumbled around for a while until the TF caught up. TF high ended up at 1270 and change. Shortly thereafter it dumped.
It's looking very similar now.

Wouldn't surprise me to see TF having a few days where it makes some good rips to the upside while the others remain somewhat stagnant....

I think you are on to something

NQ is heading up for 4800 + like a magnet is drawing it there. I think ES/SPY can go a little further before it rolls over to support. I doubt we are heading for a real correction, just into support for the last run up.

Edit: But the move to support will probably look pretty ugly

Good chance we work down to 1234.1 to clean up some unfinished business.
that's what I'm seeing at the moment...
