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.

My Algo targets for today

lets see what the market offers and what the market takes.

Its always a fight but having few probabilities on your-side makes the fight 60/40 in your favor.

One Trade in Premarket yesterday


Took 1 trade with 3 contracts

Learnings

Respect the levels as market does and why do I think i am bigger or better than the market

Wait for the price to come to you rather than jumping in like there is no tomorrow

Took a lot of heat but then when market got me into Green, I GOT GREEDY
Plus the market was heading downside and i looked for long and not Short

Still making dumb and dumber decision.
$288.00 after commission is still a better day than negative day.

PRICE ACTION TRADING SAVES YOUR TIME

Countless traders wish that they had started with price action instead of indicators.
Who here wished that they had started with indicators instead of price action.

Becoming a consistent trader is a long journey. It takes at least a few years of intensive effort. As a new trader, time is precious.

You should focus on studying the market. You should spend your time observing the market. A simple approach like price action trading allows you to do just that.

Price is the only thing you need to focus on. It helps you to avoid distractions. With a singular focus on price, itís easier to learn how the market behaves and speed up your progress.

CL Levels

Just need to refine it a bit more and see how the levels play for next couple of weeks

My Combine for 50k

I ran this combine along side my real account and in 10 days i achieved the goal and for the final day i took a small risk free trade to makesure i get over the 10 days with a win.

Real account was lot more than that.

A number of days i traded small 3 contracts and took High probability trades and the result is here.

Sometimes we need to let the runners run.

Learnings

Set a daily goal and in my case i had that as $350.00
Stick to your plan and then trade your plan

Lets see what the preparation for Live funding looks like.

Learnings from Tonight


Had a full on day and feeling fatigued
Waited for the High probability trade with 2 contracts and managed it to 49.21 that should have been my profit target but the greediness came into this and got stopped out at 49.14

Still not a bad days work.

More rigor and courage to push the trigger button is needed and few more streamlining to do

Every day is a new day and it teaches a new lesson.

Yes after the event i can sit here and say...Could have...should have and i would have made another 400.00.
the fact is set a daily goal and when it hits it, either protect it to take more out of the market or get your money.. fold it and walk away..

Market is here today and will be here tomorrow... its the consistency of your approach and method that defines you and gives you the edge.
