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.

A very good question

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
Overall i am running at 18 winners and 3 small loss

The system allows me to cut my loss short and re enter

VK is the King Kong and i cant be half the trader he is. He has taught me a lot about Algos,discipline,and never to over trade.Have a daily goal and once you achieve it, close the monitor and go enjoy life...

He is the master and i owe a huge amount to him. As for his Algos and my levels...they are totally different.

I work out the levels on bi weekly basis and his levels are on daily basis. VK finished last 10 days with over 40k.

I will be so happy if i made that in 6 months and hope you can see the huge gap between us.

I pick my trades with the help of the secret sauce and i only take 1 or 2 trades per day. I let the price come to my levels and then i take the trades with the institutional traders move.


Sharmas
p.s yes i did and will come back to you soon my friend.

US Open trade

I am normally asleep when US opens as our time difference is huge.

I wanted to test my new improved secret sauce method and plus use my ES levels


Here it is and the target of 2167.75 nicely hit and my BEST night ever...


Sharmas

This is my third trade and i took 2 shorts in CL and and the Long in ES...

Update...ES hits the level 2168.00 and bounces off it...Always best to take the profit with a tick or two less to get filled.

calculating levels..

Hi Sharmas,
when you say you wait for the week to close and the levels are calculated on weekly and bi-weekly, do they last for all days of the following week? or you keep calculating on daily basis for the next trading day looking at week and bi-week?
Thank you,
Bbsky

Level calculations

Hi Bbsky

These levels were calculated on Sunday and they are still valid and i use it the way i have shown in other charts but with my secret sauce set up.They haven't changed and the trade i took yesterday was off the level and the top of the day was perfect with my trade and ES bounced off that level and went down massively last night



And will be looking at the levels today to validate the set ups going into tomorrow and Fridays trading.
