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.

Monday and Tuesday Trades

One trade per day and so far both have given me my daily goal

Lets see what the slow summer market delivers today and the rest of the week.

I get to have proper sleeps and dont have to sit and watch the screen for hours and hours

Plan your trades and look for High Probability trades and repeat the process over and over

Great Short from the level

With such a slow market took the short with the retest of the level and got out at 1745.28

Not a bad day in the office

Hi Sharmas,
do you look at higher time frames for an overall analysis and take the signal on low time frame?
Thanks,
Bbsky

Hi bbsky

I have my 30 min chart for daily levels but my trade setups are on 3 minute chart.

I use my secret sauce on my 3 min chart and my 30 min chart is in the background and i glance it now and then.

I have moved away from Renko and Bars and now fully used to my 3 min chart.

Looks like you're doing well mate! Keep it up

One question .. how do you determine if you will trade long or short off your zones?

Hi Mate

Thank you so much

The secret sauce is what helps me and yesterday it determined the targets and entry like magic

The levels are working well for me so far

Tonight's Trade and done for the night

Entered short at 45.93 at retest

and took profit at 45.73 of 20 ticks x 10 contracts


Happy with how the short was picked and yes was sweating a bit when the market retraced to 50.00% but having seen this set up over and over, trusted the entry and the trade.

No trade can be 100% but taking High probability trade one should be confident to take them and work it through
