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.

Like everyone

I need my sleep

Yes it is Friday 8.00 am


For someone in here it will be like no way it cant be Friday as where i am its Thursday so looks like Sharmas has scammed it again by changing the world clock.


I will try to answer the posts in here but do i need to spend time to go over

I have 2 things that i use

My levels and these are calculated on Saturday after the Market close and i do another calculation on Wednesday

Other is my secret sauce that tells me potentially where the market could or may go.

I show my trades in real time and not cook it up after the event.

I am a small trader

Like most of us

This is my journal where I share my thoughts and trades

Either you like it or not

I am not selling anything and there are millions of different ways to trade but one needs to get comfortable with what they can be consistent with and what gives me better results

Yes I have tried them all and used most of it

This method works for me and I am so far pretty pleased with it

I am not asking you @IzhakHaim to be happy for me but I can tell you since using my journal and posting my trades I believe I am Accountable to one person and that is ME

I trade for a living and not to come here and play games

If the account cannot be audited by 3rd party it does not have any value as trading results. Just read all the news clips about so many money managers ponzi deals and how they even send out "monthly statements" to clients.

If you do not see posting done at time of open a trade and a later post closing it with time stamps and prices on both,......

Wake up.

What does it matter???

He's not trying to sell something.

He's not a vendor trying to promote sales

This is his journal and if he's lying then he's fooling himself

I am a Trader

Guys
I will not be a call provider and I will never ever become a vendor and you all know how hard I have been with certain vendors.

I am taking live trades and like I said I have blown a few too many accounts

I have gone back to basics and started with zero indicators and over a period have worked to improve my levels and spent over 9 months with it

Then I came across the secret sauce and with those two things together has given me the success that I always thought was a possibility but I wasn't able to achieve them.

I will keep posting and writing on my journal if you guys will allow me too

My levels change and yes they are of equal values but there are never the same level from week to week

If I will try use gif for next time I post my charts as some of you find it difficult to read

I am here to learn and capture my thoughts and share as much as I can

funny you say "I am a small trader
Like most of us"

You show us how you take $2000-and way up daily from the market.The best way is not to copy/paste your chart, just post: Buying now CL @123.45 and later Sold now CL for 123.67 This is real time (live or sim does not matter) to see if your sauce is still good or got some mold in it and is not for us to eat anymore... Real time calls with time stamps. Not after the fact pictures.

Itzhak, what are you on about? Copy-pasting of charts? I'll try to deflect you from messing in Sharmas's journal by posting my latest live results in my own journal. Leave Sharmas alone please. I'll give it to you as best I can. I cannot proffer live account results like my sim results were, because it is a brand-new journal, and it is still a learning process.

Sharmas's "special sauce" is a tongue-in-cheek thing. But it is a thing, and it is working for him. So bugger off about the sauce, Itzhak, you don't get it.. Thanx.

Stand by.

Learning

If you put it that way then I will share my wisdom

I have found that only stupid people stop learning and if you see I have been here on BMT for a long time and I do spend time to read other people's journal and always respect their journey

We never stop to learn and create and re create and with that our thought patterns change

You see what I have been making lately and have you stopped for a minute and asked how much has this guy lost and how many sleepless nights he must have put into this

I have a number of other business interests and when I get my teeth into something I give it 100% and always look at things from many different angles

And do you think large players in the market sit in front of their computers and take trades like us

They have Algos and they take trade so the sooner we learn to see how and where the institutional traders are interested in and how they move the market the sooner we start to have a better view

And when I say my secret sauce it's not an indicator but a Algo that is based on Price action and it shows me my potential trades and potential profit levels

Why do you think I took my profit in CL at 40.47 level and what happened after that and where did the market go

Why and one needs to keep asking WHY

I just updated my own journal page Izhak, with live results. If you wish to teethe on something, teethe on that. We're for real man, not just some "Johnny-come-latelys". We're bearing our breasts here. Go take a look, and come to your own conclusions, yeah?

Do i have to

The trade so far...

Night is long and yes i can take the profit of 20 ticks and be done for the night

10 x 20 ticks is not bad.


Showing last nights trade and the profit was taken at 40.47 and right after that the market turned around and made a new high of 42.08


aiming for 41.28 as profit but have locked in 20 ticks per contract profit.

Moderator Note


I have received several complaints that the user sharmas is a secret vendor, promoting false results in order to lure in rookies that don't know better into contacting him where he then tries to point them towards a system to buy.

If you have evidence of this, please contact me by private message.

Sorry to dump this in the thread, but the number of complaints about the user is too big to ignore.




Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
