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.

UPDATING RULES - looking back

For a trader - optimizing rules is always important.
First I am looking back to analyze the weekday results since a bit more than a year.

Weekday results of GFIs1 tweets from January 2 2012 to now

Total points of any weekday
Monday 232 points
Tuesday 15 points
Wednesday 520 points
Thursday 75 points
Friday 296 points
Total 1138 points

As I had posted in the thread last year - the results on Tuesdays and on Thursdays are not sufficient.
Even after a longer trading period - the daily trade on these two weekdays after GFIs1's rule are not
covering the broker's expenses

So some profound change in that balance has to be made NOW!

As I will not search for new rules for the small result weekdays - I am restricting my future GFIs1 day trades to:

Monday - Wednesday - Friday

This makes things much more easier without losing anything but WINNING TIME

So from now on there will be only three GFIs1 trades a week. This means a monday trade which did
not happen because of a holiday (likely to come right now) will be on a Tuesday instead.

Hope we get more great results and put more weight on the better weekdays.

Thanks for following
GFIs1

NO GFIs1 trade on a US holiday.

..attention - some vola might occur today

Therefore a Tuesday trade to start the week.

Very well done @GFIs1 !

The result isn't that surprising since the tendency of those two more weaker days alredy became apparent last year...so it's only consistent to cut these days out in the future.

So, keep up the good work !

...So, maybe you want to get out by time when 7730 is reached before you might give back too many points until 15.00 ? Just a suggestion, and NOT according to your rules...

.. according to my rules - I will exit as proposed
but indeed the push up was earlier and hefty.
As I mentioned in my first post - the trade might unfold
within the time foreseen - which is most of the time a
good entry/exit combo. With that a thorough follow-on
the trade should then not be necessary.
As always - some exceptions DO happen ;-)
Thanks @Daytrader999 for the good idea!

Happy trades!
GFIs1
