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.

As we can see from the price development up yesterday and the move down today:
Normal wekly rules are not vaild on triple witch weeks!

So a hint for good trades (directional) like this week is:
Monday, especially Tuesday and Thursday.
Omitting Wednesday and Friday totally.
No overtrading needed.

No Wednesday trade, no Friday trade:
Triple witch week where normally a negative weekly result is to find.

Looking for next week with more normalized volume and vola.
Good trades

I admire your discipline.

My humble opinion:
Discpline means surviving in choppy markets.
Without discipline one is set back as a spectator
instead of being actor.

Monday trade

There is no normal Monday trade as on Friday range was 160 points.

BUT:
A promising start this morning with a red candle of 89 points (O/C)
brings us again to a new WienerWalzer:

ATR level


Lots of free days for the system at these ATR levels.
Each "small" bar is a gift in this environment ...
