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.

New levels for CL

Was busy with tomorrow's event and saw the beautiful LONG but was few ticks late.

Secret Sauce confirmed it and took the long ...Got paid.

Haven't had a chance to do the levels for ES

Hi Sharmas,
I'm assuming it's real account congratulations on your results (no offence intended). May I ask why 3mins charts? It seems to me like a lot of people use non time based charts for very volatile products like CL.

Again, great work/trades

Thank you

Futures Edge on FIO
Yes this is my Live account trades
For last many years have done paper trading and blew few accounts may be more

Finally learnt the trick of the trade and now using 3 minute time based chart as have found better success

My problem has been that I went to Bar charts and then to unirenko and with unirenko I had 4 different set ups

What I found that the unirenko did not give me the correct price levels and hence why minute chart

I do use my 30 minutes as my guide but 3 minutes has given me much better result

As for CL I have found based on my levels it behaves very well around it and it has enabled me to get into trades with confidence and hits my daily goal with either 1 or 2 trades per day

Thanking you for reading and writing on my journal

ES-How did it workout

Here is the view of ES levels that was worked out last week on Sunday after the market closed on Friday or my Saturday

Why did the market trade around these levels and why did the market know where to trade to and trade off.

Is this magic or known levels that institutional traders trade.

A long weekend

Had a great long weekend to get some much needed R&R
but seems like i needed to come back to get R&R here....

Lets see what the market delivers tonight and this week.

Levels marked and secret sauce is working its magic.

One trade for the night

I am super tired and have been up most of the night as wanted to see if my strategy that i created over the weekend is going to bring home the goods

I entered 12 contracts at 39.97 and got my target hit at 40.85 and making this the BEST EVER trade for me


The levels worked like MAGIC ...

Last night's Chart and Levels


Here are the levels and the chart.

I took 88 ticks with 12 contracts yesterday and my best night ever.

88 x 12 = 1056 ticks and this equals $10,560.00 before commissions.

After this trade it feels like i dont want to take another trade.

But this is business and the door must be reopened and a new day starts today.
