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.

The weakness of buyers.

The price was indicating about the weakness of buyers.
That weakness then produced a small price movement worthy of a decent small Globex trade.
My entry was not the best, but the protective stop loss was alright

AB=CD


Very nice AB=CD set up. The buyers organized nicely and made it happen in 22 minutes.

Watched the trade-vid, nice music - and nice trading! This is pretty much the same as i do and what i believe to be the simple key(at least for me). Watch S/R levels and play the gaps between them. I prefer P&F style charts as they paint a cleaner picture for me personally. 1 for short term and more importantly one for longer term. I always want to have my direction make sense on a bigger timeframe(like 120, 240min).

One thing i noticed is that she came close to your target then took a breather. Whenever she pushes for a new low or high, she tends to pop and often make a leg, but your target was sitting close to the previous push down. So could have milked it a bit more- as you can see in your vid it popped +5 ticks pst your target within seconds

Keep up the good work, you're on the right path imho In sim you may want to start experimenting with leveraging risk with adding more contracts on pulls back up, then selling them on pushes your way. Trading gets so much more interesting once you can add a few cars Just dont rush it before your accountsize can handle it

Good luck!

NG Scalp

Small scalper. The sellers simply were not strong enough. Will reorganize a bit later for a stronger 2nd attempt.

CL Scalp

Another day in the shark tank. Small scalper on crude. Sadly, became sidetracked and forgot to respond to a larger chart frame sell signal.

ES Ross Hook AbCd pattern (uncaptured)

The Ross Hook presented a nice AbCd pattern. Alas, uncaptured pattern. The small account risk management appliance did not allow for the full capture
