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.

A sneak preview about 2 years of results here

Year 2013 and 2014 up to current week with GFIs1 system this year here:

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


Last year the results were much smoother over time - this year the summer brought
some long thirst time to be interrupted suddenly by a sharp gain.
Over all the results over a year is comparable and reaches the same amount (like
year 2012 too - which is not charted here).

Monday trade


Dax still near the upper resistance (cloud bottom in the daily Ichimoku).
Some indecision in the market - end year rally not really in sight.
Sitting @ 61% fib (9304) at the moment.

Dax trade today long 10:30 to 13:00

entry @ 9304
exit @ 9323
result 19 points

IB vol good

Hi there, I noticed that you now only do the 3 trades per week.As of 2015 are you going to revert back to 5 trades per week, as for 2014 the greatest movement days have acually been Tuesday and Thursdays.Just a thought.

Thanks in advance to your reply.

Thanks @CPRICE76 for this input.
My dropping of Tuesday and Thursday is quite a while back (somewhere to find in this thread). This was
a good decision as I got two more free days without any pressure. As the results did not really change
at the balance end of year I can say these two days were not changing much over the year.

But your input is good - even this year we had some very nice moves exactly on Tuesday and Thursday.
I might change a rule (needs some work to look back) to consider trading on these two days - but let
the other weekdays at the sidelines. My intent is not to trade more.. but less with a better result.
Optimizing it is the goal.

Ah thanks.Probably best to trade just the 3 days of the week then.After all as the saying goes " Less is often more"??
The key to your trading is not the fact that you charting skiils are productive but the oldest rule in the book " Cut losers fast and let your winners run"?? And also do not overtrade!!
Correct??

Thanks.

THAT is trading!


Today's call was clear - the stop of 30 points my optimized maximum.
It had been hit! By FIVE points!
Obviously some bigger players made that tremendous pullback in the
midst of the morning which triggered exactly that stop too.
Stepping out at 15:30 when price ended @ 9204 (+81 points if stop would not
be sitting within 30 points)... gave instead a MINUS (stoploss) of 30 points...

THAT IS TRADING

No need to change any rule here as that is part of the game.
The rules are optimized too to press the most points out of every day.
