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.

What time template do you use on the TF for NT7?

The suggested template that I get in the insturment manager is "CME FX Futures ETH". But the problem with that is that template has it starting like at 19:00. I know the TF opens up at 8:30, so I'm reluctant to use the suggested one. If I swith it to the template "CME US Index Futures RTH" then it opens and closes correctly. Which one should I use? Should I go against the suggested template? Which do you guys use? Thanks for any help

I don't know the name, maybe someone else can be more specific, but in lieu of another response, find/create one that starts at 8:30 and finishes at 3:15, central

The open on a daily chart is at 19:00 so the "correct" one is the default.

But if you want only the day session you can use the other one.

I would use the default one.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
