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.

Speculator Anticipation

Today was kinda a interesting day. We were setup for a solid rally if we got a morning retest of lows, but everyone anticipated the rally and the market just gapped up and ran. This caused the later selloff as everyone who anticipated the rally and bought in had to sell out again.

When short term speculators in the market anticipate a event or a series of events, it creates a new series of events.

Soro's actually talks about this too...

Gotta love the trading paradox!

We will rally again, but not until short term speculators stop "anticipating" it so aggressively... Very long rallies result in very long selloffs because people become so much more optimistic, and it takes that much longer for their mood to change back.
