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.

Congratulations. That's really hard to do (capture an even number) because the cron job for those statistics only runs every 15 minutes or so.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Monday trade

Dax short 9:30 to 14:00

entry @ 11466
exit @ 11476 SL
result -30 points

IB vol extreme

Greece development before opening influenced much.
Some erratic moves highly possible.

Wednesday trade


Dax short 9:30 to 15:30

entry @ 11487
exit @ 11517 (SL)
result -30 points

IB vol ~5000 = low!
higher risk

Comment: In Kumo, very low volume, political dances as for long time...

Friday trade

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
No trade today:
Yesterday range > 150 points
Today IB < 5k

So just a mid-summer normality...

Have a great weekend

Monday trade

No trade:

DTB and Soffex closed due to a technical problem...

I don't trade when there are technical problems the whole day.
If I set automatic to execute trades - there is a high risk that they are not filled properly.
Waiting for Wednesday - if volume on IB is good enough.

For the Derivatives on the Dax which start 09:00 the same.

Bigger Bug

Looks like we see a bigger bug here:

2,5 hours NO futures trade on DTB, Soffex
1,5 hours NO derivatives

The Greek opened their banks today - and it works

But the German Precision seems to make Holidays
