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.

Three trades ended red - two of them with Stoploss of 30 points each
One trade was a nice run with 145 points plus

Weekly result plus 77 points.

Total twittered results for the first five months now plus 684 points.

Have a great weekend

Gap Close?

Today the magical 6'000 in the DAX was killed.
The gap to Friday's low @ 6008.5 had not been closed this morning - but NOW...

Have attached an actual Dax chart. On the right with the "Prev" (previous days range)
and "IB" (Initial Balance: 30 min opening) that Gap is still visible.

Very slow movement today - after that Gap Close a next downmove quite possible.
Today the system Dax trade was not a winner. Staying tuned for tomorrow.

Preview Dax next 2 days

Today the Dax closed @ price the open today.
Taking the steep downmove of last friday and today's closing I see
a highly possible chart for the next two days:

a) tomorrow: another downmove... how far is not defined
b) Wednesday: turning point in the week (as often after several trending days/
in any direction)

So expect to see a continuos down in the Dax tomorrow with a little retrace for Wednesday.
