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.

do you a systematic way to determine the best RR and win% for any instrument and intra day trading?

As I wrote. I have a RRCalculator. What it does is converts each RR+Win% to 1:1 Win%. That way you can compare different setups.
If you like I can send it to you.

I like to use a discretionary manual trailing stop.
I use volume profile to look for supply/demand tests
for initial stop placement.
