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.

I think open (entry) was 10003.5 .....

yeah - depends on the machine clock:
I got filling @ 10006 - and some seconds later it was 10003.
Did not really matter as the SL was activated also.

Dirty loop between 11:30 and 11:40.
Hope, your position is still intact and wasn't taken out only because of a tick or two.

very choppy often around the important markers like 10000 here...
Many orders sitting above and underneath causing sometimes high volume
with erratic patterns.

Dax outlook


Price is still south of daily Kumo.
This means above all still short.
The bulls drove price up. But the test for long will need once a daily closing in the Kumo
above the line of 10512. From there it is only short to get out north of the Kumo.
That could happen within the next 2 weeks.

Lets see.

Trading..

Futures Edge on FIO

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
..on thin technical equipment and charts right now:
I am sitting on a island in Indian Ocean - near Mike's .io islands
Far away from every larger landscape.
Just ocean around.
.io stands for Indian Ocean and means an archipelago
north east of the Seychelles - belonging to Britain.
Internet here does not always work fast.
Therefore a system that allows time programmed entry,
exit and stops is the best for the "shoestring traveler"

Trading from the beach is really something special though

PS: Time difference: 2 hours ahead of Frankfurt... easy

Very deceptive today. I had a long entry around 80 but not took it as while a clear uptrend first move after the open was down. I know you are trading statistical rules, its just a market observation, not your system's )

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

No problem so far - I did not go for wider stops...
As said - around 10K price things are not easy to predict.
Can be seen often with lower volume to push price easily around:
taking all stops out +/- 50 points up or down the IB start price.
We are bear Kumo in more undecided area - which shows
some erratic moves.

Good Trades!
