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.

I think you may have to adjust your rules as the daily range is going to get alot higher due to grinding higher- eg like the Dow.

Thanks @CPRICE76
I will adjust range of course when prices will rest on this level.
Maybe the stop loss settings need a brush over too.
This needs some more data though.

Another rule confirmation

Even the rule to NOT trade today
I followed the adequate wednesday rule to see what would have happened:
entry short 10687, exit 10688: result minus 1 point.
Even that the price made nearly 150 points down to come to nearly the same level

Anything goes in these crazy moves..
Better to stay at the sidelines for sure!

Good trades

Was sitting on the false rule combination. Very rare constellation (had only once in 3 years).
But no excuse! This is trading.
For those with shorts: stay in until 14:30 ;-)

Good trades!

Last of month and friday

If taken a short within the same time window...
yes - next time we will choose the right rule set
exit @ 14:30 10687 result 85 points. ***

We still can do it better.
Of course this is the start into a new year

Have a great weekend
