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.

Hi @podski

Thanks for compliments - you are right - >90% of Wednesday trades are a short.
But there are some rare exceptions - I can tell you in 50 minutes

Because Swiss-German is unwriteable?

p.s. Best Wishes for the holidays, looking forward to the March contract.

Travel Well

The contrary is true - thanks for asking:
To avoid that NSA gets to much out of my emails - I am writing important things
in Swiss-German. Works great!

PS: Happy holidays to you!!

Hi @podski

Thanks for your wishes and compliments.
I try to finish this year with the last trade(s) next week.
For 2014 I see no change yet - the journal has quite
some followers: THANKS all for reading and making inputs.
This motivates to be even more accurate and disciplined
in the future!

Have a great time
GFIs1
