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.

Yes - thanks @mrblond89:

I invented now the "Babushka-Walzer" for such rare occasions.
Which means to follow the second Walzer too for another hour - and from then turn short for one hour.
Today that would have worked and of course given more points - all legs positive

Have posted it in the Walzer thread.

GFIs1

Apologies thought I was in the Walzer thread.

Congratulations for the great results, been a pleasure to follow your hard work and success, keep up the good work!

Wednesday trade

After a rally last night and during IB - price is too far from reality.

Dax short 9:30 to 13:00
entry @ 10086
exit @ 10016 (SL)
result -30 points

IB vol high (risky trade)

..now we know - THAT was a good sign. Just the timing needed some adjustments

Good trades with the Dax on a slope.

ECB today


Thanks @choke35

Yes - of course the normal ECB decision today 13:45 and 14:30 explanations are taking place.

In addition Draghi will have an outlook on the WEF tomorrow which might give some transparency.
Therefore some sentences on difficult questions could tell more about what is going on behind the scenes.

See the special event (webcast live) tomorrow Friday which might influence marktes here :

"Board member:Mario Draghi Event: Participation by the President in a discussion with Lionel Barber at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Time:08:45 CET Venue: Davos-Klosters, Switzerland Contact: ECB Global Media Relations, Tel. +49 69 1344 7455 E-mail:media@ecb.europa.eu
Text:No text will be made available.
Notes: This session will be webcast live on: The Year Ahead: The Economic Outlook for the Eurozone - World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2016 | World Economic Forum
