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.

$1,000 ....... All in on Red or black OR are your odds.....

better, more attainable if you waited for that Perfect Setup ? Anyone who has been trading long enough, has seen and knows what it looks like ( whether you trade with Indicaotrs or without Indicators ) , there are certain trades when you are watching your chart(s), that when they occur, you get extra excited and are confident , that this trade will Net you a gain. My question boils down to this..... If you took $1,000 , would your odds of doubling that $1000 , be better odds in your favor of doing so, by betting on either black or red on the roulette wheel OR would you have a better chance at doubling that $1,000 , if you sat on your hands and waited for that " Perfect Setup " to occur, and set your Risk ( Stop at $1000 ) and your Target at $1000 . It would be in all or nothing trade you were willing to Risk. Example...... Trading the ES , you trade 8 contracts, and your stop is 2.5 points and your Target is 2.5 points. Which of these 2 options would you be better off risking that $1000 on ? We will assume you are trading larger timeframe charts , and also assume that given the Timeframe chart(s) we are trading on, that a Target on the ES of being hit for 2.5 points, in any given trade, is likely ( we're not assuming we catch it at the bottom and have to hold it to the ADR of the ES max range ). Anyways, it was just a question that came to me yesterday, wanted to share it and get other Traders thoughts. Thanks everyone - Michael
