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.

Looking forward

Next week is triple witch on Friday 13:00h!
Mentioning also the last days before HALF YEAR RESULTS..

so: (copy paste from last year):

As the coming week has triple witch on Friday
there normally are quite some movements
BEFORE that day.
This has to do with companies half year results.
On triple witch no trade - as the pricing in has
already been made in the days before.

So GFIs1 trades on Monday and Wednesday ONLY.

Original idea..

.. after rules was perfect!
Only the Stop move to BE was false..
13:30 exit 10923 gave 68 points.
Anyway - the market will be here tomorrow as well!

Good trades!

Tomorrow Wednesday

as it seems gives a normal short...
And we can test a Thursday trade - if there is a good Wednesday...
On Friday no trade as announced.
These shaky movements with high and low volumes during the day
should be more stable from end of month.
Trades from my side will then only be taken if IB is > 5K in the first 30 minutes.
As long as volume is lower then in low volume days the patterns will not work.
So expect some down days in July and starting August.
