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.

5 minute chart entries

For those of you that use a 5 minute chart, when do you normally enter your order, at the 5 minute mark when the candle changes or during the candle formation? I normally use a 1 or 2 minute chart to enter and refer to the 5 minute but have been using the 5 minute for entries as well.

I would just enter after the close of the candle/bar. You're already on a puny time frame ...how small do you need to go.
