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.

Thanks Jedi!

I'm on it, thank you for your thoughts, I lost track a little over the course of the thread, and the recent focus on CL left me in the dust a little. Of course not having studied the theory and read the books, I'm struggling with various interpretations of the method.

ACD

01-23-2014 CL mid day along with ES. Jedi is correct, ACD is more than a breakout method.

MF, thank you for all your posts here.

I'm interested in possibly using ACD on larger timeframes. Since ACD doesn't work as well on intraday ES maybe I can use weekly or monthly levels.

I wonder what to use as the OR for weekly levels. Maybe the first 2-3 hours of the first day of the week. And maybe the first 2-3 days of the month for monthly levels. What do you think? Do you know any ACD traders using A levels on higher timeframes above intraday?

yes it makes lot of sense. But one still has to use daily levels along with weekly and monthly.

Oil pit close 01-23-2012 On 80% of days, one has to hold long or short position for 30 minutes or more to get paid fully.

Intraday ACD often works better as a fade in ES. The other value of intraday ACD is directional bias.

ACD

01-24-2012 pre open. So far one trade of failed c down. Long 98.32 out 98.74.

Correction: daily support should read 98.40-97.85

01-24-2012. Stop loss and market profile, fib chart along with ACD.
There are all kinds of levels.

Only thing I have CONTROL is stop loss. Mkt. Profile and Fib levels are from a friend. I can not draw these levels but it gives me perspective. She does well with them as she draws them and trade them every day the same way. Just like i try to trade ACD.

01.23.2012-16.15.48 - structuraltrading's library

Following is in response to a question i got.

NOTE ABOUT SIZE: Lot of traders ( including myself) think, if i had more trading CAPITAL, i will do very well. More trading capital gives flexibility and makes it easier. Key is not to add LEVERAGE to ones equity. Futures are loaded to begin with. If one has trading CAPITAL of 100,000 and trade only 2-4 cars on 80% of days and clear 100 ticks a day on just 2 cars- end result CAN BE VERY GOOD. KEY is consistency. One need to be ONLY profitable 200 days to make $400,000 (lol). Now, there are traders who say they can trade 25k etc.. and make a very good living. More power to them. For my style of trading, it helps to have 100K

So, forget about account of $200,000.

Once, a trader has traded successfully with 2-4 cars and has higher EQUITY, he/she will be able to HOLD positions for bigger gains with bigger size.
