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.

Hi,

just a question: is your 30 pts SL hit on 10:34 (low 9806) hit or have you put a wider SL for today?

Thanks,
Alex

...with THIS scenario from over weekend: a larger SL needed - to avoid noise.
Price moves within seconds into 30 points here - driven by large order (just look at IB 15K in first 30 min)
My SL was set at 40 today.

Intermediate Thoughts about Gaps


The freefall of the markets were really written in the books last week...
So - as this is NOT part of this thread - to take a trade over weekend
after rules - I just could not resist... and made some fortune which
does not influence here

The BIG movements made me think over weekend.
To open a new thread about gaps - and big gaps.
How to take profit.
How to treat such monsters which are of course not often seen.

I will analyze the move(s) over weekend and start the new thread for
special occasions.

Stay tuned
GFIs1

Size

@GFIs1

People say, a trade with a 100 lot size wouldn´t effect the ES at all.
What would you consider as a comparable size in the FDAX, not having an effect on the market?
(in the sense of moving it)

Waiting, Discipline and Patience Pays!

During the last 14 days, including today, a 10 contract order will cause slippage of 1-1.5p.
The first two slots of market depth are regularly below 5 contracts.

hmmmm - EVERY trade influences the markets and thus indices..
but in fact orders in Dax of 20+ contracts up can make short term
movements that take out stops sitting near...
So plan to be out of noise (statistical matter) and let markets
play out.
Of course placing a 100 lot ES in volatile market is not the same
as when placed in calm waters :-)
So watch carefully the volume given at a time.
Decide "when" it is best to swim with the current.

Good trades

I have seen 1m bars over 100 points today. Very nasty day

Trade to live. Not live to trade.
