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.

First, congratulation for your first announced winner here. I was following the trade during the market hours.
My question is: where has your stop been placed? The trade went more than 30 points against you in the first 15 minutes (at very fast speed).

Hi medias

Thanks for following GFIs1 thread!

The stops are for normal trades set 30 points away (750 EUR max loss).
For extreme days - after a rally the day before - a roll over day or after
a "long weekend" as we had for this trade - the stop is set to 40 points.
Today the stop was 5 points away from the highest price :-)
So we stay still out of noise.

Happy trades

GFIs1

Chart I

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
To update the trade from today with a chart I am sending here the setup I am using to follow my rules.
In the upper pane there is the DAX future in 30 minutes - in the lower pane the statistics mentioned.
On the right you can see the blue composite profile with the prices to the appropriate volume paid.
Thanks for your attention.

First of all thanks for sharing, your "journey" seems very interesting...and quite relaxing which is priceless nowadays.
Nevertheless, the price hit 6975 at 10h17; so you should have been stopped. Am I wrong ?
