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.

3 years summary

Looking back to 3 years journal

Total points per year - nearly the same...
Tendence - slightly upward

Year 2012: 1015 points
Year 2013: 1030 points
Year 2014: 1052 points

Who was asking about consistency?

Thanks for following.

Was it Draghi who made it crash down at 0920 or 1620?

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Second Thought - Patience

Scenario: As a discretionary trader I start the day trading with a small gain: Bingo! Second try is a medium loss.
Hmmm.. Third trade the stop loss is set tighter now- of course it was hit! Fourth trade I leverage up and there is a big loss.
We have to stop for the day - overtrading. Well known - isn't it?

Not possible for the GFIs1 rule - there is only ONE trade per day. I said one trade (sic!). If the trade is stopped out or ends negative we have to wait for the next day. This is very important for every trader to let the market play it out: Patience and calm down! So we stay in the game.
Point!
Next day - new market - new possibilities. Plus a relaxed beginning to take THE trade as we had in maxima only ONE loss the previous day with a calculated maximum overall risk.

Easy - isn't it? Plan your trade and trade your plan.

(to be continued)

PS: with this system even the commissions are easy to summarize

I came up with the same idea because my account went too low and now see the others found it useful too ... just one action per day. New day new picture. Thank to this approach my account survived and I started to finish my months usually nicely profitable. I trade YM.

Good trading :-)

Monday


There will be no Monday trade here because of the 150 point rule.
Friday had Hi/Lo of 200 points...

This let us look at the alternative trading possibility in my other thread (still under test conditions):
https://futures.io/trading-journals/34280-gfis1-highvola-dax-journal.html
Might be interesting to squeeze out some nice points.
Remember: First 30min candle has to reach 50 points Hi/Lo to be counted.

Have a great weekend
GFIs1
