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.

Bigger Picture Dax & EUR/USD

If we want to see in the bigger picture evolving a "W" in the futures we should see

a) in the DAX a level of 591x again and
b) in the EUR/USD a level of 1.228 again

If these bottoms hold - a longer uptrend may follow.
Holding that in mind!

Good trades

Tuesday trade

Today a weak signal exists.
Trading a Dax short from 11:00 to 13:30

entry @ 6131

exit @ 6143

result minus 12 points (maybe letting run that one a bit more could help)

risk - medium

Thursday trade

Today another weak signal.
Taking a Dax long from 10:30 to 13:00

entry @ 6148

exit @ 6138 (SL)

result minus 10 points

risk medium - tighter stop than normal

comment: strong selling today - no real retracement taking place now
under these circumstances better to stay at the sidelines or flow with the trend.

10 points was under uncertainty last week respectively after so many negative
days.
30 points normal SL - as today
40 points with high vola or special days (announcements / high vola prev day etc.)
Today the SL held despite it was nearly touched

Good trades!
