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 resistance...

Even the bullish movement which has not ended yet
there is some resistance @ 6566. This could hold
for some days... so I do not expect that the price
will boost through this level without coming back.
Just a thought on the next development.

..this means be cautious with longs right now..
our daily rule would have indicated a long which
gives some negative results.
We have avoided :-)

No Volume...

at a US holiday for the DAX:
not even 50K contracts counted when normally two to three times the contracts
are changing hands...

Best: to stay at the sidelines as no move nor good chances are in sight at such
days..
Remember - this is mostly the case in such circumstances.

Does not apply to all tickers. Till 9:30 I thought that the Bund would be dead too: just around 35% of the usual volume traded.
But then "they" (whoever these mysterious "theys" are) pushed the market above yesterday's high. That must have triggered a lot of stop losses. Just now the volume is around 70% of the average.

I think it will drop a bit more after 17:00. But for such a day it is quite high - and the range is 0.94. Almost double the long term average (not of the last days).

Did I profit of it? Nope, exited (too) early and went shopping.

Dax rebounding

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

The system was mostly wrong in the last 10 days.

Now the Dax was going down to 6350 to push bullish through
the cloud (here the 60min chart) - might kill the last upper supp/resitance @ 6652 within
this move north.

We will see tomorrow if and how to enter.
Good trades
GFIs1
