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.

just showed up today, but thought i'd throw in my 2 cents.
there is more than one definition out there, so just to clarify,
what i use are more appropriately called Momentum Bars,
or Mbars

a good starting point is 10% of the Average Daily Range (10)

this fellow goes about it in a different way:
<<< sorry, couldn't post the link to the YouTube video
because my "post count" is deficient . . . . . . . . . >>>

believe it or not, both these approaches will get one to the
same general area

from there some tweaking may be required based on the
style of trading. my style is scalping and my primary "tool"
is the ROC(2), so i want a setting that makes the ROC talk . . .

these settings work well with that approach:
ES --- 8 ticks
6E --- 12 ticks
ZB --- 5 ticks

safe travels

Hey Sandy,
Can you post a screen shot of a typical workspace that you use? I've attached my setup, but I feel I need an additional indicator for conformation.
