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.

Friday trade

Dax long 09:30 to 14:30

entry @ 8105

exit @ 8090

result - minus 15 points (tight SL)

risk - medium

outlook - inside day expected - watching the downside carefully (tighter stop) - US numbers 14:30!

GFIs1

Edit: This week the signals were not in sync! So the slip in prices (as discussed in the other threads)
wiped out some "normal" behaviour. No problem here - this happens.
Looks like volume is ok - and the fear in the markets is accelerating. - This means some good moves
next week
Have a great weeend!

Edit II: @podski: YOU GOT the hat - I am taking the french mustard instead (pure of course)

Edit III: After having seen that price did not come back into previous day's range after 10h - the bulls
had not really an edge.

Best to both of you!

We closed the open gap at 8110 yesterday, from 7/8 May, so an inside day consolidation would be reasonable, maybe some sort of fourth wave or a stronger reversal. There are two remaining open bull gaps from 29 and 30 Apr around 7815 and 7875 cash if it does accelerate strongly to the downside, but that may be a much later story as we have now started leaving bear gaps above us.

Today..

Futures Edge on FIO
the Dax had some weakness throughout the session.
Even when the (unbelieveable (fake as always?)) US numbers came up
the DAX price did NOT come back to yesterday's VWAP.
This sounds good for another dive next week.
That will also be the last days before rolling over contracts.

Outlook week 24

After having had good volume and some strong moves out of normal timeline
we have to be prepared for some other stronger moves before roll over on
June 21st. Expecting to see lower volumes then in July and August.
Friday range was higher than 150 points - so no normal GFIs1 trade on Monday!
Hope to see two good trades next week on Wednesday and Friday.

Great weekend
GFIs1

Your analysis all week was superb, unfortunately the daily rotations were unkind to your timing system, that's trading as you say so well, and sometimes the luck is missing.

Thanks a lot for all the brave work and here's to next week!

Hi @AnasParis

this is a good glimpse for a further upmove tomorrow - if it comes...
I am looking for a nice downmove on Wednesday (short as always)
and let the markets play tomorrow

Have a great evening - thanks for the great input!
