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.

Now your goal 2-3 months of training. Then if those 2-3 months would be 80% positive days each month or at least 60-70% positive days then it is a time for real. Good luck and keep on ))) and do not hurry. Now you do not need to hurry. All you need is to rase your skills and money will come. As you already understand there is no psychology "You have an edge and use it or not"
Psychology needed only than you know there is edge and you cant use it. But this not about you.
As yor TR skills will grow, start to learn fundamental analyse and BIG picture. Learn from pros. They dont use only TA. TR is not TA this is fundamental analyse of supply and deamand.

Uhm... I was thinking till the end of the month.))) Ok, then 2 months. (Till end of September.)

You to man. How can I ever repay you?

I was not gonna trade today due to reasons I mention earlier but I decided to make 1 trade because I could not ignore such a classic and good opportunity. Basically I saw tape stop a couple of time when approaching pivot and it stopped for me is a long time.(couple of second) I seen it stop twice, which is better probabilty then seeing it only once. Then after I place my order you see tape went passed my entry with some flow but it just got absorbed and went in my direction. I keep my mouse over reverse in case I know I am wrong. And when 5~ in profit, I see good flow up in my direction. I know I was right and I put stop to breakeven. For some reason the ending of the video got cut off so you cant see my exit. Its just a couple seconds after the cut off. Basically I got out at with $158. It went to 1.xx80~ . I exited early but I dont care. I am happy with atleast $100 and I wanted to end the week on a good start. I am happy. 3 of 3 days this week were positve. $132 Monday, $575 Tuesday and $158 Friday. Grand total for this week is: $865

Thanks Bloom once again for showing me one color tape. You opened my eyes.))) I hope you are doing well too. P.s. How did you even think of one colored tape?


My understanding of your trade in this video is that you waited for a rejection of the downside price movement by the Pivot level @ around 1.4153, then you went Long .... Right ? What role did the two T&S charts play in the trade ? What numbers did these two T&S give you for you to have gone Long ?

Like I said in the description. I just look at the flow of the tape showing all trades on the right side. The one on left I dont look at it at the moment.

How can I ever repay you?

I have to say "How can I ever repay you?" to 2 persons here.

First, I met pbylina in a different forum where people who doesn't know anything keeps on posting and those who actually knows, keeps their mouth shut.

It was due to pbylina that I am here today.

Next is obviously bloom. I don't have to mention anything about bloom, people reading this thread already knows what kind of person he is.
Those who make fun of bloom because of poor english pls keep in mind that here,we are more interested to learn about the language of tape than the english language..and bloom is surely far far better than you all.

IMHO,If you can't understand bloom's english, then you may not be intelligent enough to understand the tape.

I no longer have the data connection , so I can't make any videos like pbylina. Maybe that is why people are no longer responding to my questions.


Any ways, you people are doing a great job. God bless you all

Only way to get data now is to open an account with broker. Like I said before, I open an account 3 months ago and I still didnt make a single real trade because Im not ready. The data feed is free. My broker hasnt said anything that I havent made a single trade yet.(I hope I didnt open my mouth too soon)

Till now I was trading Indian stocks only....Are both of you talking about Euro and es?

Secondly, I hope someday,I will be able to turn this trading skill into a business in future,when I will become better in tape reading. Anybody having similar dreams? Want to work together? Bloom? Pbylina?
