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.

Dear followers and thread readers

I was very pleased to start this journal some weeks ago.
It gave me a lot of great input and motivation.
Plus a lot of thanks and replies on futures.io (formerly BMT).
As said - appreciated greatly!

Now...
I would be very thankful to get some feedback from followers concerning:
• what did GFIs1' input bring to your personal trading
• which thoughts influenced your trading plan
• is a futures.io (formerly BMT) / twitter input helpful for the future?

any comments welcome

GFIs1

Week 14 - the new quarter..

..will begin with a GFIs1 DAX long from 10:30 to 13:00.
Interestingly the DAX closed the quarter after a nice rally under 7000.
Today the DAX is back above 7000 again.

Good trades

GFIs1

...
• what did GFIs1' input bring to your personal trading
..

A reminder to look at some old ideas again. I don't trade the Dax and I do not trade mechanically but using some probabilities might help.

Most I'm interested whether there is a relationship between day of the week and the day having its low first and then move to its high and vice versa. Or whether a certain number of up/down days implies a reversal.

Currently I have not collected enough data. Doing so manually is cumbersome and error prone. Have to - at least partially - automate it.

I'm also looking at the duration of the cycles from high to high and so on.

But all of this has a low priority. If Eastern is cold and rainy - I'll see.

Currently I use the simplest and most effective assumptions of all: just assume that the next day is of the same type as the current one. Or: the trend is your friend - until it changes.

There are many relationships of day of the week and similar movements as I could see from my statistics.
The most obvious is the wednesday where about 95% of the "second wave" are a short.
Can only encourage to find more of these patterns within the weekdays.
As I stated in earlier posts there are some special obvious patterns on the last of a week, month or triple
witch - which give normally some very good results.

Thanks for the input and the trend following trading idea
