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.

Friday...

no trade as I was not at the screen for the entry.

But right now was the only day that could have given some
points back this week while IB had good volume at small witch friday:

entry long 09:30 @ 9984
exit 13:00 @ 10065
theoretically result: 83 points

result will not count here

Good weekend

Week 42 result


This week had 2 trades

both with 30 points stop loss
weekly result -60 points
Points since week 2: 368

GFIs1

----> looks like that 518 point peak is a strong resistance

Today Friday and last day of month.

From Monday the new Dax Mini will be introduced with IB.
(it works already since yesterday)
It is the normal Dax future divided by 5. So only 5 EUR per point here.
And same data stream. Just the pricing (% per unit) is slightly higher.
Actual initial margin: 2541 EUR per contract.
Will be very interesting to see how volumes on the normal Dax future
develop and if some traders switch to the smaller brother.
It can even attract more traders on the Dax.

Even large one is relatively illiquid and slippage is sometimes severe. I get better execution on CFD believe it or not. All mini would do is to steal some volume from the large one and both will be more illiquid

Trade to live. Not live to trade.
