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.

Hi Sharmas,

first of all, congrats to your trade!

I'm happy, that you did not close your journal, I think there is quite a lot of value in it. I never got the feeling, that you try to be a vendor or that you support other vendors. If the haters, who are around here wouldn't have mentioned it, I even wouldn't have recognized, that there is somebody out there who taught you some system. Isn't this the way for most traders, that they find their way through learning from others? So I'm happy that you show us your way and I'm not expecting anything from you. Just please go on.

Cheers

and closed it

and here it is friends...

and why did i let the trade go...because the levels with the institutional levels it told me what to potentially expect.


Sharmas

and the chart after the profit was taken....it went up but one needs to take the money off the table without giving most of it back.

Hi Sharmas. Kudos on your trade, my charts confirm that on your CL 09/16 contract your target should have (and probably would have) been filled.

But I had a query...15 contracts on CL, would require an initial account balance, with many brokers, of $52,800 to enter that position. Did you have that much in your account, and if not, did your broker give you a break and not charge initial, but rather just daytrade margin, which was probably 1K per ct? So only 15K in the account?

Still awaiting @Big Mike to resolve the vendor allegation. Have you engaged the Russians to find the evidence yet.

Why does it matter how much he has in his account?

Sharmas,

I would suggest you post trading commentary on your journal instead of giving the unrelated innuendo fule.
