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.

GFI, I honestly deeply appreciate your work. You need a lot of courage and discipline to put yourself on the line like that for all the world to see, almost each and every trading day for so long. I read almost every post in this thread and I can only say one thing: "chapeau". What I really like in this thread is your professional and positive attitude at all times. Keep the heads on approach. If you still need my vote - you have it.

Thanks for the roses

To keep it simple - there is ONE trading rule to not forget:

Follow your trading plan !!!

This is by far the best money managment ;-)

To get some excellent views about that rule - please have a look at the last Webinar of Jeff Quinto here on futures.io (formerly BMT).
He has put a remarkable slide to that theme which brings you to the "circle of success".

NEW homework results


Took the time and made an effort to put the spot on my system with different rules
for every weekday in the Dax.
As you know there are different rules for every weekday - now looking back this year
it would be nice to know which weekday gave the best results so far - and which
day might be skipped.

Here are the results:
Weekday's total twittered points from January 2nd to now
Monday 239 points
Tuesday 40 points
Wednesday 352 points
Thursday 105 points
Friday 281 points
TOTAL 1027 points

Conclusion
Looking back to the efforts - I could certainly skip Tuesday's trades in the future - as for
so many trades I took in these 46 weeks to "earn" less than 1 point per week - I need to say:
Forget about!
Instead of finding a more adequate rule set for Tuesday: "ONE DAY MORE OFF!" - hehe...
That should be a good economic approach.
Looking to put most weight (in cars) on Wednesday and Friday should bring top results.
