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.

Tuesday

Looks like a perfect day for short in the Dax.
As noted in chart of last weekend: https://futures.io/trading-journals/38245-fibonacci-spirals-how-use-them-daily-trading-4.html#post574460

Tomorrow Wednesday IFO numbers 10:00h!

Good trades

GFIs1

Edit: The contrary from above:
.. 300 points up from the low - what the market did in no time but with high volume..
9:00 to 9:30: 10733 contracts
9:30 to 10:00 11598 contracts
which is impressing

There was only one red candle the in the run up. All others were green. Not even a Walzer
signal came up. Very interesting day. Did not take any trade as by the rules.

Long or short? I am assuming long but you did not mention it!

long...
The direction is always given by the direction of the 30m candle after IFO number - today 10:00 to 10:30.
Exception is on Friday where the direction is opposite at the same time.

thanks for the missing puzzle piece

Quite a tricky weekend constellation

We face a special combination of days over this weekend:

Friday: 2nd to last trading day before last of month - no Friday rule
Monday: US Memorial Day - no trades here...
Tuesday: Last day of month - Special Friday rule

Without discipline no gains to make!
Looking forward to pull the trigger the right way.

Monday

Today US memorial day: US stock exchanges are closed.

No trades here as normally volumes are lower in the Dax.
The day trade rules do not allow a trade: the system does
not work with low volumes. Prices may jump without
any news during such periods.

Tomorrow Tuesday "Last of the month" with a trade.
And Wednesday again.

GFIs1

Edit 9:30
First candle with 6503 contracts - but NO direction...
