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.

Stops

Hello GFIs1,

is there a possibility to communicate when you close manually the position ? For those who try to follow your trades it`s hard to comprehend when and why to close earlier than the hard stop of 30 points.
The performance of your system will differ a lot from those people who will always ride till the hard stop.
A possibility would be to make a NEW reply on your thread, as there would be a notification send to all subscribers.

When you close your positions you sit anyway on the computer....

Thanks for your input - very appreciated. The mentioned "manual close" is very seldom here in fact.
Your proposal for a new post is welcomed - yes, I sit at the computer right then - and it does not this thread
cluttered anyway as these moments are counted on one hand
So I will do it next time!

Good trades
GFIs1

PS - to mention that this thread here is a journal and does not imply any proposal(s) for trades. So no guarantee
for winners - but probable.

Unfortunately just a little bit delayed...

Back to field ONE

This week started with a Stop Loss - totally
against the system trades..
Looked back to the 2 last years - 2 weeks before Easter:
Both years 2 weeks before Easter were red - last year 3 red trades.

Decided to not take a trade again this week!
After Easter things look to be normalizing

To show it in the chart here: the timing was contrary to the system normally!

I am following your system/journal.It appears to me your system is profitable over the year as you rely on several BIG winning days eg 120+ points to cancel out the many small ( upto 30 points) that you loose eg. If you have just say 20 big winning trades per year at 100 each- that works out 2000 points, then obviously you have to subtract your small losers.

It was good that early part of this year you managed to capture a few 100 plus days hence the system is still +, but if the last month no 100+ trades have been hit this massively eroding the profitablity of the sytem.

I dont think you can judge that just for 2 years that there was no positive trades the weeks before easter.As the future cannot be predictive on the past for just 1 week for a 2 year sample space.
