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.

-- Big Mike

Because I have placed importance on certain levels and trade them. Just because I have placed importance on those said levels doesn't mean that they aren't any less random.

If everything was random, you could not make money considering the house edge. You would be in the same position of a roulette player faced with two zeros. You would always be at a disadvantage. Supply and demand would mean nothing.

POC shifts are pushing price down, clear trend signals. Two trades, holding runners at b/e has caused me to be taken out. But it is what it is and I am done for today.
