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.

Large wedge on the day. Measured moved from apex would be down to 4048. Took another trade short again from 4068, with SL locked in at 4066 at the moment. EDIT: out at 4058.

Curious, do you folks actually care what's going on with those other instruments or are you just posting that for informational purposes?

Emerson posted the list, but I watch those stocks along with the QQQ and SPY. A lot of time the ETFs can lead or lag and give you signals if a move has more room to run or reverse.

I watch the stocks because their news, earnings, or other items can affect the overall index. I believe you should know your product inside and out. Our product is a basket of Nas stocks. If you trade CL you should have a good understanding of how crude is produced and sold, how manufactures and customers control supply and demand, etc.

I only really watch the Q's for S&R against the NQ for S&R and compare the levels.

So would you say you look at a combination of fundamentals and technicals? Or are you still only focused on the technicals?

Areas of intrest

Yesterdays push up, was on stong momo. With that degree of ascent the re-tracement was logical. 60 zone holding support. Followed by a mild two wave correction not sharp as the previous re-tracement. It appears we have momentum shift in play.This supported the non farm payrolls move. Something we have going for us on the short side is the lower high circled in red also we have slightly lower lows.

For the NQ and the ETFs it is mainly technicals for me. On the individual stocks I will look at technicals and fundamentals.

I like to watch the high flying or heavy weighted stocks because if the index is in one direction and AAPL starts making new h/l it can pull the index in that direction. Sometimes you can get a heads up. Or on the other side if you are in a trade and AAPL starts reversing it could lead to a reversal in the index.
