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.

I was looking for it to break down, but I don't care so long as it starts moving.

It's been up for so long and so much it gathered huge momentum. It can't break down without a lot of turning. Like a Titanic.

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Indeed, that's why I've taken profits for today as the fast drop is still more likely to be a 'C' wave for now - but there are still some small icebergs around.

Once we've seen an outside week or month then we can start to think conditions might be significantly changing, otherwise I'm still net postive with Gann and Santa, but nevertheless with a steadily widening weather eye for cloudier and bumpier times.

Week 47 result

This week had 2 negative trades (-9 -30 points)

weekly result -39 points
points since week 2: 870

a strange IFO day on Friday was totally out of the normal.
This is why some desaster stop can help

GFIs1 who has not forgotten that next week US Thanksgiving will shuffle trades too

Well 100% record on week 48. Could you please input entry & exit times. Also why was there a trade on Tuesday instead of Wednesday? Thanks.

Well 100% record on week 48.

Thanks for asking:
Monday 25 Nov: 09:30 to 14:00 long (entry 9267 exit 9312)

Tuesday


GFIs1 View Post
Dax short from 10:30 to 13:00

entry @ 9422
exit @ 9409
result +13 points

slight correction today expected before further rallying up this month

The foreseen (slight) move was a real slip today. Up to now the range
of today is 145 points. Nearing our 150 point limit for a trade tomorrow.
If so we will not have a normal wednesday short as usual.
In any case a recommendation for a trade will be announced.

GFIs1

PS after closing bell:
Day cash range 184 points - so no normal wednesday trade

Wednesday trade


As announced after the slip of yesterday - there is NO GFIs1 trade.

A scenario for today's Dax development could be with a good probability
1) short down to 9198
from there
2) long with goal 9303
without any time markers today

Good trades
GFIs1
