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.

Can I ask you what is your stop loss in FDAX do you use fix or in dependence on market volatily or else ? and how long you been trading DAX ? Nice result btw

There is a 30 point SL for "medium risk" - for "high risk" 40 points.
I am trading the Dax for several years now.
The daily intraday trades are posted on futures.io (formerly BMT) now for a year - on Twitter more than a year.

Thursday trade

hehe... I know already about the Thursday trade ;-)
After a Hi/Lo of more than 150 points today -
there will be NO Thursday trade! This is fine as tomorrow
a ECB decision will mix up the markets...
So we will only have a week with three trades - so what.
Looking forward on a nice move on friday though.

Good trades!
GFIs1

Superb day! Thanks for sharing.

I will also try to start a journal when I am used to futures.io (formerly BMT), I usually do 3-4 intraday trades on Dax so its great to also see your longer term planning thoughts.

Btw - I joined Twitter and set it to follow you ok, but nothing comes in, anything obvious I miss? (apart from brain...)

Travel Well

Thanks - my twitter input is only 3 tweets a day - direction / entry / exit & result
Here on futures.io (formerly BMT) the stuff is discussed a bit more in depth.

I only can encourage you to start your journal as soon as possible - the
questions and help from futures.io (formerly BMT) members will make you fit in no time.

Fixed. It was my lack of Twitter brain. Not sure if that's bad thing or a good thing. I have fallen.

Thanks for the encouragement to also go public, I'm sure its good for the soul, honest...

And enjoy your planned and richly deserved rest Thursday!!!

Hi @GFIs1,

Can I ask you what´s the actually reason is for not taking a trade the day after a Hi/Lo of more than 150 points?
Another question that I have is regarding Thursday short days. Have you made a statistic how often they percentaged occur? Thanks for sharing.
