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.

hit 60 bid...


leaves 1....so much for the great avenger. minus 2 ticks net on the day.

hit 58.5 cause I'm sick of being wrong

+3.5 ticks net on the day.

The bias killed me today. If i trade what I see and not what I think I am way way better off....no more thinking, that is for fools...lol

I remember a jujitsu seminar with Rickson Grace. He demonstrated an inch is a cinch, a yard is to hard....a reverence to gaining or defending position.
So here I find the same, bias is wrong, day is long....I tempted fate every step of the way today by holding a view. That is not what I do. I'll be better tomorrow.

Fundamental on the way...

but that will augment what I see not direct what I see. Yesterday I let a bias rule. I have never been a forecast guy and I let that background fundamental take over. I'll go back and review again this morning.

The easy way is much better.

ecb rates as expected...

slight offer into decision...
presser in 30 min or so...
comment day might be nice...

stop in to 1.2507 rests...

greed is good targets...

aware that at least in my mind the 200 period looms here...

still no fundamental analysis for today.

support?


This 85 area did see exhaustion of earlier sellers this session before catching a little bit of a bid on the european open. This confluence of price here in this area again as we head into the EU presser in my mind says 1.2485 is some type of equilibrium price...."pressure" off until mouths open.

Ill maintain the PLS @ 90 and if an offer comes in I will let greed rule the day.

Still short 2 from the figure.

without greed Id cover here before numba and comments
