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.

Week 17 result

This week had 3 trades - one positive and two with SL

Positive +11 points
Negative -60 points
Weekly result -49 points

Points since week 1: -52

Two mistakes in one week are too much.
The trading rule priority is now corrected
for Friday the last in the month.

Many THANKS!

The FIO Journal Contest 2016 is history!

Thanks for your support in the contest thread.
Only with you I won the first place.

Many thanks to @Big Mike who made all possible
to organize this contest even under very
difficult moments - which is a special effort
and gets a special memory on this forum.

I hope the friends that were putting their
journals into the public view had a good time
and will continue to contribute.
Especially with the profits for themselves.

Good journals - and trades
GFIs1

Discussion

Today's trade idea was finally not bad.
The US numbers were interfering and the long did not start as foreseen.
But finally the lift after the numbers started quickly and ended with a high of @ 9924
or closed @ 9903 at 16:30 (planned end of trade) which was nearly 100 points
higher than the entry.
Anyway - the market made its own thing today with not so big volumes.

Happy weekend
GFIs1

Monday trade

No trade today - Friday Hi/Lo range (cash hours) was 188 points.
Dax is in 1h Kumo. If upper boundary @ 9992 is taken out then 10048
can be reached.

Good volume up to now: 25k contracts (10:10h)

A long Walzer is developing - let's see 10:30

GFIs1

PS 11:30
All above went like a charm.
First Walzer leg good!
Second to check after a special Walzer pattern... (discussed in the Walzer thread)
