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.

Why not simplify the trading rules even more and just place a short on a wednesday?

Its even less comissions for the broker? hahah .Less is more etc.......

Fortunately the broker's fee is not really a weight in the balance: it is only a small
percentage of one point of the future traded.
If I only trade on Wednesday the performance of the system would drop to less than a half
So I am sitting in front of the screen these two extra days per week knowing that the boost
may be a bit lower.

Thx, makes more sense. Is these numbers are in absolute gain in ticks?

...yes of course (for ONE contract always) - you can read here in the thread the daily/weekly and yearly results.
These weekday's are automatically calculated in the spreadsheet when I make new journal entries.
A journal should make the most important parts of your trading readable - of course without a manual input.

On a lazy day


One could get back to some previews of the bigger picture made earlier...
So I am referring to my (at that time) quite adventurous scenario of a drop in the Dax for February 2014
and have posted a chart scenario in this thread:
https://futures.io/trading-journals/17862-gfis1-1-dax-trade-per-day-journal-109.html

Now I have made a short recalculation of this scenario which has played higher but resulted as previewed
mid december.

Calculation goes:
ATH 9794 down to the middle of Kumo (@ 9200) results in 594 points made. The same distance is needed
to see a reversal - thus 9200-594 = 8606. This is the support level to have in mind the next few weeks.
This down move I am expecting within a few days somewhen in february. Right now the price came up
again to the lower Kumo where a hard resistance is seen.

May I ask- why if your trading system is profitable- why do u not reinvest profits and starting trading 2 contracts instead of 1?

This thread is about 1 Dax trade per day - to make it easy to see the results I have broken down to 1 contract shown
in every posting - so are the results.
I am trading different accounts - so the money management tells me how to increase the number of contracts.
This is not the theme here as I want to compare naked results.
Please read also the beginning of the thread (at least the FIRST post)

what is going with the DAX ?

it was immediately a minute before ECB announcement - price dropped from 9180 to 9010
There is a limit in % change in one minute for the Dax - but I have to find it first somewhere.

Looks like we are back to normal right now.
