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.

@gentlemensrelish

There is room here to discuss the strategies.
What you have on a one page rule set this is NOT to compare to my ONE page rule set for my system.
The main problem - which made it difficult to program it - is that I the system has some very clear rules
plus some that are deriving especially from the Ichimoku indicator. In this I am considering the daily
plus the 30 minutes chart.
Reading this thread carefully - one can note well that the rules are NOT made for every day but has
a special close look at EVERY weekday.
So this rule set is very different to any gap rule set which is meant to trade when that pattern is coming
without looking at the weekday itself.

Every trader has his own trading style and plan (if ever )

The only thing I can openly say is that this system described in this thread is working more than 3 years
(2 years documented here) and is still positive even the market conditions have changed tremendous
in this period.

DAX Observations 10th Feb


A few observations for the DAX tomorrow assuming Asia follows the up trend. Both a gap and a lap tend to indicate an up day from the previous close. I expect an open around 9330-9340 an early morning pull-back to close the gap (not the lap) to 9325-9335 then a rebound to close out between 9380-9400. This forecast is based on historical probability.

Lets see how misty my crystal ball is!

Thats more of a quick scalp sort of trade? GF1S looks on a different timeframe and never trades for just 15 points etc,...

Another Long


based on the probability that a GAP & a LAP produces a positive next day I've gone long again, only for a 10 point exit @ 9316 - please don't tell me off - just highlighting a trade based on probable outcomes
