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.

Isnt it risky to hold a position through Data release ( ie ADP )? Or gambling that the figure comes out in your favour??

Data releases are always shaking markets. If you enter "near" that time - it may takeout all your stops.
Which is not recommended.
Normally I do not trade "over" US data - depending on the importance of the numbers.
But for today:
These US numbers are second category (for me) in the Dax and I do not consider them having much influence
at least on the direction.

Thoroughly deserved! You are one heck of a disciplined, patient system guy and great to see it pay up again.

Travel Well

Hey rat - thanks for your nice words.
Would love to see you on the upward sequence again - as in OLD TIMES :-)
Take your time and start over again next year.
For sure we will meet the same clavichords* (if you know what I mean).

Happy week
GFIs1

For those who do not know about clavichords: just google it
To be honest I have built one very long ago - so I know about
