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.

a strong penetration of 11650 would be an interesting signal as that would be a lower low after higher (AT)highs.

which means in straight words: a correction on its way

GFIs1

would not be surprising. we will know soon about the greeks if they can manage to eject themselves from the euro or cause more excessive drama. not to mention the rumblings in the east and middle east could then take the stage..

so far money flowed out of the risk assets today:

two bearish possibilities are sketched on the chart if 11650 is penetrated. red or blue.

just my musings since I have no skin in the DAX game at this time.

Walzer post above went into the wrong thread
Of course not counted into this thread's result calculation.

Special to mention:
Nice to see that the rule restrictions - especially to NOT take a trade
when vola is higher than normal - is very efficient.
And to have a alternative system on these no-trade days that give
some extra points is most welcomed.

Great stuff. I guess we have arrived to a similar conclusion - particular methods are suited to a particular market volatility. it's sad to see many traders persist doing same thing over and over again when market, yes, "wrong".

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Exactly!
As I do not "watch" the market all day - there is a need of having some very strong rules for different markets.
If followed these rules strictly - many bad holes can be omitted. And therefore some good points rest.
