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.

exit @ 11126
result -60 points

IB vol low

PS: important on THIS trade - a Walzer mixed in at the same time
https://futures.io/trading-journals/34280-gfis1-highvola-dax-journal-16.html#post540327
and thus I did not take the stop loss as normal. Because the Walzer had some short
for later than rules here dictated with low volume.

..no short today ;-)

Yes, nice entry but

the update of the forum was sent at 9:36 (6 mins after the 9:30 open 30min bar) and with the price at aprx. 11300...

small details, big difference sometimes...

AFAIK he's not giving trading signals, just documenting his own trading.

That is true - I posted it later than taken :-)
On every LAST of month - I enter 9:30 in the opposite direction of first candle...
check it back. And as you know I only enter on full or half hour.
The reason why I was late posting was that I had a discussion right about that
in german forum...

Style not signals


Today is a classic @GFIs1 trade and also an important example of the value of a journal.


@xelaar has it right ...it's about documentation and trading your plan., not anybody else's signals or theories.

GFiS1 has
  • 1 trade per day => so either right or wrong ....once .... (never caught in the chop)
  • His plan allows for him to be wrong ....a lot
  • Sometimes he wins a little , sometimes. ..on those days where things run ....he wins a lot
  • He never loses a lot on any given day

If you read a bit about this game ....then you know that this is the guts of a trading plan .....


Nice work. .
