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.

Week 39 result

Futures Edge on FIO
Negative week to end 3rd quarter:

Five trades taken:
two positive trades (7 + 8 points)
three negative trades (-8 - 6 - 30 points)

Weekly result minus 29 points

Total points since week 1: now 993 points
(last weeks total had a 12 point error)

Looking forward to a interesting last quarter now.

What was the size of your stoploss today? Medium means 30 points right?

Hi @rounder8

Right - SL was 30 points!
My broker showed a max @ 7337 - and my SL was not filled :-)
Otherwise it would have been a minus 30 points!
Anyway - on such low volume days a "not-to-wide-stop"
is much better than to get lost in a market-maker move
that shakes everything out.
This is a hint to NOT trade during low-vol days...

Good trades
GFIs1
