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.

Some reflections on today's vola

IB started with a real plunge this morning:
IB Open: 10668
Low: 10572
Volume: 17516 contracts as mentioned (High)
IB Hi/Lo of 97 points

Risk was HIGH - which means high volatility

What to decide:
a) high vola - stay at the sidelines
or
b) take the trade - SL @ 40 points because of high risk IB mentioned

Either way - things develop in a quick and dirty way (as always)

Now things play out as previewed.
There will be a next obstacle on Monday:
Rule of "last" of month is: "Friday Rule". Then and ONLY then!
Means on Monday things will be as on a normal Friday while TODAY
we do not play the Friday rule - just if you were not sure on what was priority.

Good trades!
GFIs1

Wednesday trade

No trade today: yesterday range high.

Instead watching for a Walzer eventually.

Friday trade

Futures Edge on FIO
There was none...

Will not take a trade until US elections are over.

No normal behavior in the last weeks in the markets.
That easy

Happy weekend

Where is the beef?

Exact price of indices AFTER elections are most interesting right now.

But - WHERE will the DAX stay right after the elections?

Here a short overview:

Watch the "W" that supports current level!
