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.

Congratulations on your journal!



In the spirit of our March Trading Journal contest, I am asking everyone to spend a few minutes and share their journaling experience.

A) What are the top five benefits you have seen as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

B) What are the top five problem areas you have identified as a result of regularly posting in this journal?

C) Were you initially reluctant to start this trading journal? If yes, why?

D) How do you feel, overall, about your journaling experience?

E) Would you recommend to others that they should also start a trading journal?

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I appreciate your posts, and I hope you have benefited from your journal. I also know that others will benefit as well, just by reading about your own experiences.

Enjoy your weekend,
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)

My Today's 6A

Closed the trade as there is a High Impact news item in few minutes.


Will now go and have a good rest.

Ended up $1007.50 day less commission today from my first 2 trades.

And as i am typing this, the market has gone down and would have delivered my target, but RULES are rules.

Current view of my charts- 6A


Was a great trade and as my rules, no new trades 15 mins before a major news item and no trades 15 mins after the major news item.

I took my profit at 1.0330 and the market paid another 37 ticks in profit...take what you have and dont be greedy.


Go for high probability trades and with set targets and stop-Money Management.

All in all a great day.


We were to fly out to Fiji Islands on Sunday,however due to worse flooding in Fiji's history we are at home awaiting for our next flight. We were then schedule to fly out today, that got rescheduled.

So will try to get some much needed rest and work on my trading strategies and plan out my High Probability trade set ups.
