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.

IB vol good

Hi GFIs1

how do you determine if IB vol is 'good'? And what are the parameters? IB = initial balance = first hour from cash open?

assume you had a good short trade today, congrats. how is your overall performance YTD etc? How have returns varied over this long periood?

g/l.

Hi @DaxyMcDaxFace

Thanks for following. The answers to your questions are hidden somewhere in upper posts...

But to make it short and clear:
1) IB vol means Initial Balance of the first 30 minutes of Cash Hour. Means 9:00 to 9:30 CET.
2) LOW means under 6-7K contracts. Good means 7-10K contracts. High means more than 10K contracts. The low and the high IB's mean RISK! For THIS system. Better to stay at the sidelines if RISK is at stake. Here I take the trades to see what happens... Stop loss can prevent from excessive drawdowns. In fact - most of these trades taken were losing...
3) My yearly results you can find in both GFIs1 threads here around the year end. There some analysis is to find too.
Both systems (this thread and the Walzer system https://futures.io/trading-journals/34280-gfis1-highvola-dax-journal-27.html had different outcome. Please read in appropriate threads all results. This year the Walzer was much better as
the GFIs1 system that did not perform as well as in the last 4 years. The "Walzer" is having much less trades - but
performs when markets are very volatile with double the gains than this daily system here.

To make it short for ALL FOLLOWERS:
This year - because of US elections - made it much less predictable than in "normal market years". Proof of the pudding
always is: if gains are above all costs during a specified period.
And that was given nearly all the time reporting here on both trading systems.

The next Gain/Loss comparison for both systems will follow soon in this thread.

Hope this helps
GFIs1
