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.

Very hard markets IMO since July I suppose. Paranoid is a good word IMO

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Thanks Alex

for both comments - markets are not in sync as you say...

For today's trade I wrote of lower IB volume - which shows that some bigger players can push market down
and up to their benefit.

Even there are such moments in markets - one has to try, make the best out of the rules - and under
incertainty stay at the sidelines.
For sure more normalized charts will be seen.

To give some outlook - I am sure that the end year rally has started and we will have some very bullish
moves before end of year despite the political situation worldwide right now.

DAX today

looks a bit shy bullish..
A important mark is 11200 which should be reached this afternoon to see higher prices before
end of year.
Price should end near that marker end of day.

Tuesday

Attention to IFO numbers 10:00
and FOMC at 20:00

Dax future has still low volumes -
better to stay at the sidelines

IFO days

today good IFO numbers calmed a bit the drop from the morning...
But the triangle forming right now does not really give good news
on FOMC this evening.
Could fix price resting under 11k - and after FOMC a sharp drop down.
Let's see

Interesting days to come:

Today we had IFO and will have FOMC numbers

Wednesday special day before (trade until 16:30)
Thursday THANKSGIVING - no trade then but
Friday second to last day in month...
Monday LAST day of month

Stay tuned - very special situation here:
not much volume expected on Friday - but steady direction
and Monday some strong moves without much volume either.

For scared traders: stay at the sidelines until start of December!

Today's good number was # 27. I suspect next good number will be number #400..

today my buying of the short was @ 34 (and it went down to really @ 27) :-)
For the @ 400 we need to discuss on which level.

Good trades
