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.

This weeks levels

Greediness came into play with my second trade where i gave away over 850.00 in profit and took a lesser amount.

Second trade was very good but put the tight stop and got stopped at 6 ticks in profit only for the market to go back to my original profit target.

Need to go back to daily targets and take the profit and wait for the retracement ...

Hey @sharmas,

Good to see that you started your own "journal" of sorts.

I wanted to point you towards a link that I feel may help you and others: https://futures.io/traders-hideout/7364-random-line-theory.html

I am sure you are familiar with this, but go through the thread and really open your mind. It seems that in your screenshots you highlight all the areas that the lines would have worked and never the areas that they did not.

Another thing that I noticed is that when you draw 6 lines per 100 ticks, you are bound to have the lines "work".

Are you trading off of these lines? Because it seems that you still use VK's CCI indicator.

Lastly, you do not have to divulge what they are, but in the spirit of futures.io, sharing information is paramount to self-interest; is it not?

I say this because you post these lines everyday and show how they "would" have worked, but you never show us how you make them, how they perform real-time, and if they have any value.

In the spirit of the forum, I hope you see that I am not attacking you, but rather trying to help you benefit the forum as it has benefited you.

Thank you for your time and may your "journal"aid your trading journey!

Work in progress


@rocksolid68

Thank you so much and yes this is work in progress and each week i am working on what worked and what did not work.

I am looking at 70.00 to 80.00% winners off the line but i am not even close to getting it where i want the levels to be or how it should or could work

Once i get the details and projections closer to accuracy, i will share it.

But i dont want to share something to this forum when i am not there yet

Thank you for taking your time and writing on my journal and your feedback and suggestions are always valued and together we can make this forum that much better

Thanking you
