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.

@ loeser
...discretionary trader's paradise?
Back to 6650 level seems very possible now.
Tomorrow may be a key day to see if price is breaking the upper resistance
or follows down south to much lower levels.
We have to watch this development closely after IFO numbers on Friday.

Happy trades

@ loeser

Thanks for following on the DAX and further input.

@ loeser

Don't put a space between the at sign and username.

@loeser will work, @ loeser will not.

Similarly, if the username contains a space, then use it, such as @Big Mike - which is valid - where as @BigMike is not valid, because that is not my username.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Friday trade after IFO numbers

Today's trade will influenced by IFO numbers on 10:30.
So the trade will be taken from 11:00 to 16:00 - direction short

entry @ 6709

exit @ 6739

result minus 30 points

Took the trade on 10:30 already as a doji announced the short.
Good trades!

BigMike's Journal Competition


GFIs1 View Post
Hi everybody

Thanks BigMike for the invitation to your journal competition - I am taking the rope :-)

Congratulations to all the competition winners of this journalling contest!
Reading in the journal thread how many posts were made in the competition month mars...
Amazing!

Very happy on my behalf to have got so many readers of my journal.
As above quote was my very first post here on futures.io (formerly BMT) I see that there is rising interest out there
to discuss price movements in my case the DAX every day.

Everyone not writing his own journal - publically or not - is invited to reread the best journals
of the contest - for each one's profit :-)

NO Tuesday Trade


Tomorrow Tuesday no GFIs1 DAX trade
as Monday intraday range exceeded 150 points.
Looking forward to Wednesday's trade then.
