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.

A Type of Scalping
(April 21st, 2017 by frannt)
Okay, as promised, here is a sample of a losing trade based on order flow. The initial bracket is set to a 4 ticks risk and 6 ticks target. Things were not looking good and looking back it appears that I was already subconsciously aware of this as I started commenting that maybe this trade will...
Throwing in the towel.
(April 3rd, 2017 by rleplae)
