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.

No offense, but unless you are doing decent size that is probably a losing approach, ESPECIALLY if you are scalping.

If other people think what I'm saying is incorrect please correct me.

No offense taken, I didn't quite explain myself in specific so it does sound like an averaging on losers approach.

Basically I tries to identify possible turning point in price, the problem here is I would not be able to pin point the exact top or bottom but I could have a high chance to be right guessing the high probability range which the turning might occur - key support/resistance. Prices will generally oscillate once they get there - great for scalping.

So once the price goes into the region, I start getting in. I could have as much as 50-60 entries. I would take profit fast on many of these entries.
