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.

@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

Sharmas

Awesome!

If there is any way we at the forum can help you, just say the word!

Good luck and good trading!

Sharmas

Levels in Action

The levels got respected and there was potential 2 long trades for over 25 points for each trade...

Not a bad night and CL worked well from level to level.

Nice job in calculating the levels. They seem to working out great for you!

What a week

What an absolute traders day it was yesterday and looks like next week will be as crazy as Friday

Learnings.
Need to focus on the levels
Let the price come to me rather than chase the price.

Focus on High probability trades

I let myself cut some good trades short even though i had marked the chart of potential profit.

Have more faith in my levels

Will be working on the levels for next week and planning to mark it as the buy and sell line.
