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.

gator, can you recommend an oscillator?

It is all about what you like and know the most. Lots of mumbo jumbo stuff are out there but the old favorites, i.e. Sto, CCI, RSI, RMI. DO, MACD, MACDBLines, etc. are still the best.

I guess I'm with you guys that are thinking upside but what a goofed up deal here....looking like the breakout long is failing.....like to see it hold around here

Edit: I hope this clears up tomorrow....

If that Pivot/Support Area of around 760.5 breaks here in the last few minutes, I think it could trigger a number of stops...might see a nice little pop down.


EDIT:

Looks like it held...

Interesting Day

Well, after the triangle area broke, we saw a nice retest of the Pivot/Support area that had formed during the day...and then got one final bounce back to test the triangle/trend line from earlier.

Today was not much fun...haha
