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.

Yes, this is a discretionary approach, however the properties of a winning trade and losing trade change as market conditions change, and markets sometimes change in unprecented ways. What consistuted "winning behavior" before will not be the same as what it is now. As long as you are flexible and stay on top of things, then you might do well. But if you are rigid, then no.

Basic price behavior remains the same, but whether it is exaggerated or numbed changes as the market changes, and this is what you have to be on the lookout for. A breakout will always be a breakout, but it's magnitude and duration will be different each time a breakout happens and those parameters cannot be known beforehand.

A retracement will always be a retracement, but the point at which it begins and its length will not be constant.
