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.

Nice pop for Apple. Needs to break out of this range.

Bye Bye Apple Dumpling Gang

AAPL is a short. I would wait for a break of the bottom of the range.

Since you are new...

What is your exit strategy? When will you admit the trade is wrong, at what price or event, and exit? In percentage of risk ($$) of your total account value, what % does this represent? Like 2% risk, for example.

What is your target? When will you exit the trade with a profit?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Well, you are making bigger mistakes by staying in the trade.

"HOPE" is your first clue you've already made a huge mistake.

You need a PLAN. Not hope. Sure, maybe you stay in the trade and maybe in turns around. That is called luck, it certainly isn't called trading.

Before you put on a trade, you need to clearly identify your exit strategy for both a stop loss and a profit target. If you don't have a plan, you are not trading. You are gambling. If you can't look at a chart and say, "ok, if it <does this> then I was wrong about my entry", then you shouldn't be trading. If you move your stop just because the pain it would be to take the stop, then you shouldn't be trading.

Just trying to help. Good luck.

Tough charts for Apple: If Apple breaks the 200 SMA, watch out below. Watch the daily stoch for a bounce.

I can't recommend options: from the frying pan to the fire. Could sell a Nov 11 390 for $120 and hope it doen't hit 390 tomorrow. And then at 3:50 PM Friday if AAPL is below 390 sell the Nov 18th for $5.30. And keep selling the weekly options to racket down your cost. But usually options are a disaster.

rotten to the core?


No, but at this very moment, Apple does not have any thing going for it to the upside.
