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.

Dax closing

It smells like the Dax might close today with a Doji:
12021 was the opening - now I am looking forward

From there a further slip to 116xx should be seen before higher
prices could follow.

what can I say.. You finally got to me - I am officialy down to one trade per day by my rules.

In the distant future, I can already visualize myself camping in front of maybe three different markets, predetermined levels with note for required reaction. One shot per instrument. Bang, next.

If it only wasn't so tough to be patient...

P.S.: Nice to see you got another bread n butter setup

Maybe you need to change your nickname then?

GFIs1 - thanks for mentioning your "reduce to the max" rule

Wednesday trade

Yesterday: range 173 points and quite high volume with peaks.
Total volume was > 120K contracts.
Not the best conditions for a normal trade - so not the usual Wednesday short.

But maybe a Walzer could chime in...

Good Trades

Illustration for Tuesday

High volume and no direction. As well as much uncertainty in the moves
as price shot up and down several times. Only to come back to the entry again (nearly).

Chart:

From backtesting data it appears that the previous days range is not an issue as regards a following day range.Hence todays short would of been a nice + points trade.

Thanks @CPRICE76 for mentioning.
It is Wednesday in extremis that is on both sides useable. But my longtime views on all weekdays
concerning 150+ points were all the same: negative.
Now I tried my short wednesday rule TODAY with an entry 10:30 @ 11952 short and exit 13:00
@ 11854 which gave today 98 points.
On that one you were right.

But it is a lot of fun to dance the Walzer!
