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.

Price movements in the last days from 10:00 to 11:00 in the opposite
direction was strong (yesterday in 30 minutes more than 10% of
overallday volume) and not expected.
As the price is in the daily cloud since 10 days and the system has
hit three times in a row the stoploss - there will be no more DAX trade
for this week: Rule No 1 protect your capital!
Normal price behaviour will be back soon.

Would you mind posting a chart to go with? I'm a visual person, so I always find it a lot easier when I can see what people refer to...

Dax daily in the bullish cloud this week

Here we go with the bigger picture - Dax resides in the bullish Kumo - so some patterns for the day do not
work as expected.

Expecting the price to go out of the cloud above - and pass the level of 6600 quite quickly.

Bigger picture - enhancements

Out of experience of the past 6 months I am giving more information
when taking a daily trade. The risk factor from low / medium / high
is already installed.
A next preview in the actual developing movements - speaking
of the morning opening I will give within the next two weeks:
There will be a prediction how the intraday movement will
proceed and evolve - chop chop for no big move - trending for
moving in a direction - and explode for some break out.
Hope to find the good tone in this concert :-)
Might help to think about risk management, setting SL and others.
