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.

The stop of 30 points is optimized for my time based entry and exit. As the trades are quite
long during the day (normally).
Having the stop more dense it is taken out many times - and the price is again in the intended
direction.
If the stop is set too wide - the negative days weigh to much.

To make it clear: my 30 point stop is optimized with the one trade per day system. It can not been
transferred to another approach.
Just test your own system back and find the optimal stop settings and eventually the take profit points.

GFIs1

Plus: Your system has volatility halts in the sense that trading stops after high vola days.
This is also necessary because 30 tick stops are already relatively close considering
daily ATR14 of >200 at the moment.

New Dax ATH

Today really new ATH possibility. **
Late yesterday pricing was already on new levels.
Start into this Friday brings already a new High.
Looks like QE money is still bringing heavy up
momentum - for a longer time of course.

GFIs1

**needs to be confirmed by End of Day though
