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.

Makes a much of sense, and thank you. I will do the live forward test 30tick SL makes help me to adjust my risk properly thank you! Tight hint also good to know? Are you using the same risk level in case of tight range, or you are lowering the risk those time:
Example: entering with 1 contract with 30tick SL and you are enterint 3 contract in case of 10tick SL or you are going back to 1 contract for 10tick SL? Thank you for your clarification in advance...

I am going "all in" and SL settings for all the same - so no smaller risk or buying in or out..
Just plain using the system: on the second - go in - on the second go out.. SL settings
are only there to be out of noise within the trading TIME.
My system foresees to trade the lower risk time zone and excluding any number announcements
aka attacks - therefore the movements of price are always smoother then.

wishing you a nice gulyás, pörkölt or paprikás csirke with a dessert at 14:30: Rétes

You are right - US data influences a lot...
but these employment numbers ar only class 1 of 3 and are not important to my exit..
If you look carefully - the important numbers are ALWAYS 30min or full hour.
So I will exit at 14:30 exactly... and as given in my first today's post.

Ok No probs. However, I have seen FDAX spike 30 points on ADP data. Good luck though!

One day doesnt count, but always a good start if it is a winner with a hungarian dinner:P thx! So just to ensure what you are saying, if you are using tighter stop like 10tick instead of 30tick, than you are going to the battle with 3 contract instead of 1 contract (same risk if the SL hit)...

Yes - the 30 points then might have a effect - but NOT on my SL set 30 points ABOVE entry of this short :-)

The contracts thrown in are NOT important - it is the system that counts: either win or SL!
That easy - my stops here are only decoration for really faulty assumption on the real move.
Being on the winning side - some SL hits are not destroying my account. This is part of
the game - I take it no longer personally - it is investment on the go... - as in every business.

Good trades all

Ok, so what you are doing is the following. You have 10KUSD on your account, you know that your SL usualy is 30tick, so you are playing with 1 contract. No matter what. Sometimes the SL is tighter, but you are doing the same rutin, because you know that your system is a winner, so it doesnt make any sense, to overcomplicated it, with calculation. When your account size is reaching the 20K USD, you make a smile, and after this you are playing with 2 contracs...

You are a lazy person with a good system (one is true for me as well...:P)

PS: Your hungarian is better than mine. I never use accented characters I am a lazy person

You got it :-)

My hungarian does not exist... I know Szégédin gulyŕs and can write it accordingly - my french with all
accents is very good - so is italian, german and english. As a partly "Wiener Schnitzel" I am quite fond of
hungarian cuisine - and loved it always - the accents may sleep
