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.

Interesting...

...move down from 16:40 with very high volume (news? and if - which?)

258 points hi/lo
daily volume first very low and then back to normal in the last 40 minutes?
something is smelling fishy ;D

GFIs1 who sees some crazy market

Thanks!
But I have some controversial points:
1) the EUR/UAH (Grivna in Ukraine) has not made the same move after these news (see pic)

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


2) despite the news that armed russian forces crossed the ukrainian border last night - the Dax went up in the morning
3) the Dax volume was on low flame the whole day and suddenly a big spike had been seen

Believe me I am watching that special situation around the Donbass very carefully since a long time. Coming back
from Ukraine some days ago I know about the tensions there very well.

Just to round it up - the Dax falling has not ended here. Some quite lower prices might be seen before this month
ends - seen also from the bigger picture - which I can not describe here only in some short words.

EUR/UAH

It is nearly off topic here:
The price of the UAH/EUR conversion was 2 years back under 10 Ukrainian Grivnas.
Some spikes up from march this year until august the price spiked to over 18 Grivnas.
Just to think about a very big country which was suddenly in the view of NATO, EU, Russia
and USA. Today the 'same' economy has no more power to attract investors or to simply
fight at the never ending long borders.

To come back to the DAX: all the german big companies that are selling goods eg. to Russia
are seeing some clouds for the very next future for their sales. And maybe even more are facing those
sanctions and fear to keep the own investments in foreign countries.

SO: the Dax can simply not hold these levels under those circumstances.

Hi GfIs1 and other members

Have been reading some of the pages on this blog and interested in following your calls...

Couple of questions if i may...

have tried to find you on twitter using @GFIs1 but the latest post is in 2013? have u changed your twitter name or am i doing something wrong on my side possibly...

have you posted your individual twitter trades on this forum so that i can have a look at your biggest drawdown?

hope this is the place to ask these questions, was tempted to ask in PM but followed mikes suggestion that it may benefit others to..

many thanks

roby

Hi @robybarletta

Thanks for joining.
Twitter: I was abandoning my live calls on Twitter in 2013. Reasons were - too many questions during trading.
And the form to send answers in this limited way did not match my needs.
As everything can be read here on futures.io (formerly BMT) it was no need to be on two rails.

Journal: You can read the yearly results with extra charts in this thread around end of year. Just go back to
these dates and see the posts.
As all my calls are made before the trade with entry and exit time you need to read that developing post on
every trading day to see how it happened. Looking back to all trades here you only see the "finished" situation.

As you are conforming a very complete thread, may be using the "Quick Summary" in the first page would give also better presentation.
