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.

Either you have a system or you don't - period. A human being can observe 'out of the box' conditions and introduce changes to the rules, but unless there is a reason to make adjustments human beings are simply in the way when it comes to *executing clearly defined rules*.

If i may add my 2 cents. You seem to imply that price changes direction on a dime which is not the case as if it were then even automated BOTS could not develop an edge over the long term. The only reason why we can make money in the markets can be measured by evaluating the level of entropy we find in the system. If markets were as random as a roulette wheel then very few could make money over the long term if any. A level of supply will always be a level of supply and the same is true for a level of demand. You seem to imply these basic tenets are not valid anymore which is totally ridiculous.
