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.

I don't think you are missing much. A three day weekend and the market closed three days next week. Market is probably not going to be normal until after next week.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

Well - I don't want to rub salt into those wounds - but it's "Golden Week" in Japan and so next week half the country will be on vacation (although Monday isn't an official holiday Tue-Thu is).

Showa Day is just the start of it.

LOL, that's alright, I still have to decide if this is where I want to learn to trade or not. You're video hit the nail on the head for me ( 8 - 5 job and wanting to learn to trade).

Thanks for that, BTW!

Astute comment: "half" the country, as in the "helots have to work."

FYI there are three periods like Golden Week in Japan -- New Year's, Golden Week, and Obon in August. There is also a new one called Silver Week, which is sometime in September.

Something everybody should do, for six months or a year or so. To experience first hand how the world's ultimate contrarians do things.

lol - that's for sure....

I remember one guy coming over to do 2 weeks consulting and he spent the whole of the first week trying to get the Japanese managers to agree on what should be achieved in the 2 weeks.

It's like swimming in a river there. When westerners get there, their natural instinct is to try to do things the western way, in effect to swim upstream. It's only when you give up and go with the flow that it becomes enjoyable and you get anywhere.

Great place to live. Shocking place to work....

@mangolassi

Hi, given you use SierraChart, is there any chance you could post your .scid file for the mini contract?

I use the TT feed with SC and AMP don't provide the mini contract via TT and I don't want to change my Live datafeed to CQG just to play around with miniNikkei.

If I could get your .scid file for the current front month (and maybe the previous front month as well), I could have a little play around and see if the mini will be useful for me.

Cheers.

I am at work right now, but here is a link to my google plus journal:

https://plus.google.com/collection/U4dQr

I stopped posting on here, since it wasn't really helping me to keep posting online. But I have 5 minute charts on here from roughly early December 2015 to early February 2016.
