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.

risk - medium

outlook - pushing further up (71xx?), expecting reversal day now tomorrow

GFIs1

Scenario of 71xx finally arrived this afternoon.
The systems time window did not fit to the actual moves today - this is no big deal.
So after the two longs this week I expect the reversal tomorrow - fits into the plan :-)

New DAX Swing Trade thread opened

As this thread does not allow overnight or over weekend trades but some swing traders might
be interested in a bigger picture approach - I have started a thread for big wave trades in the Dax
and will compare the theoretical results over time with the system trades in this thread here.

The address for interested traders is:

https://futures.io/trading-journals/22509-gfis1-dax-big-move-swing-trade-approach.html

Any comments welcome :-)

Are you a NinjaTrader user?

 
The consolidation down to push price under 7K has not yet finished..
Our time window was to short or the support to high - whatever..
Waiting with a long before this criteria has met.

Good Trades
GFIs1


14:20h - level of 6985 was hit

Enjoy your weekend!

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
