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.

It is a public holiday in Germany and a lot of other European countries ... so will anyone turn up or can we all have a day off ?

Hi @CPRICE76 - thanks for following

1) only IFO and ZEW have special entry rules. Trades are made on IFO and ZEW days
2) no
3) there is slippage possible but I have very rarely trades where SL does not hold

Good trades
GFIs1


Thanks for the reply.Just to let you know I have positioned myself ahead of ZEW . Hoping I do not suffer major slippage if the number comes out weaker than expected. I am using a 12 tick stop @8241 in the cash not the future.

Looking @ the daily

Futures Edge on FIO
Had promised some posts ago to show the bigger picture with the daily Dax
to get a feeling where price might go:
--> GFIs1 is leaning again out of the window
-> who bets against? lol

Friday trade

Dax short 09:30 to 16:00

entry @ 8352

exit @ 8382 SL

result minus 30 points

risk - medium

outlook - conso before a long weekend

GFIs1

Dax made another 8404 top - we hope to see a double top
this might be the turning point for lower prices... - lets follow!

So Monday will be NO GFIs1 trade (Pfingsten) and Wednesday is the
first day to look at again.

Have some nice days over Pfingsten
GFIs1


PS II: after having seen the top - some more normal days in Dax trading
will be for sure

Week 20 result

This week had three trades:

one positive: 1 point
two negative: -9 - 30(SL) = -39
Total weekly points: - 38

Since week 2: +372 points

Not very encouraging week during this bullish move to new alltime highs.
As a conclusion how to trade near highs: be careful and lower your risk...

Looking forward to next week (no trade on Monday though)

GFIs1

PS: "For sell in May and go away"... it is too late now
