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.

hey

Wldman,

I recently came across your posts here:

https://futures.io/elite-trading-journals/13642-psycho-ward-random-chart-hallucinations-thoughts-9.html#post161988

I'm no programmer, but the short side / long side distribution idea seemed interesting enough for me to attempt an indicator to look back and plot those distributions on a chart (still not done yet, but getting there). And your enthusiasm for the concept motivated me to look up everything you posted, which then led me to this thread.

Personally I can see only two reasons to post live trades:

1. To hold yourself publicly accountable and thereby improve your own trading (which may or may not be necessary, and may or may not even be helpful).

2. To generously let novice traders see what you see on the chart when you pull the trigger.

I don't see why "proving yourself" should enter into it, and "detractors" certainly don't matter. As a new guy around here my attitude is to feel grateful for whatever people want to share and leave it at that. If you post an end of day markup, then a new trader checking out your charts can either break it down and figure out how to trade your approach off, as the experienced traders around here say, "the hard right edge."

Or not.

All that being said... having just read through your journal this afternoon, what I'm curious to see is a description of, and explanation for, each element on your chart. Right now I've got bollingers and MAs on my own chart, and I've traded with Keltners, but those squiggles and bars in panel 2 are new to me.

best,
RK142

The indicator from post #187 has a minor bug. The smoothing does not work with Butterworth, Gauss and Supersmoother Filters because they were not called correctly. I have now modified the indicator. You will find it attached.

I will also try to get the original indicator replaced or removed.


Hey FT, Do you have a version of this for Multi? Thanks.

Too much work at this point...

to go back through 11 trades. In annotating just the first entry I spent almost 20 min...so Im not going to do that. The flip side is that real time posting is sometimes a huge distraction. I will try to do it but if the split focus cost me money I can not continue that.

To the guys that have been asking, I'm sorry that will have to do for now. I will try.

11 trades today feels like too many. 7 winners net 115 ticks. 4 losers net -20 ticks.

So net +95 ticks from primary entry to primary exit.

To the two guys that doubt the value of forums ...everything on the screens save one indie is available in its original form here on futures.io (formerly BMT)...all but two of those in the public area. So it is a matter of identifying what you need, knowing what you are looking at, and most importantly amending your decision process to reality and staying on discipline.

Special Mention

@Fat Tails , since I see you are in the thread. Four of the items here on this particular view are the result of your work and generous contribution to the futures.io (formerly BMT) community. I know you deflect praise, but I would not feel right if I did not thank you again. The only exterior reason that I'd even think of posting charts showing an actual trade method is because of the contribution here of folks like you. Thanks man.

I've been researching...

the risk on/risk off trade with an eye to 1) viewing an internal that is relevant to my trading. 2) thinking of creating a basket risk on risk off that can be traded.

I thought this was interesting.

So, the question I have is...


Who wants to take a look at the zero line indicator to understand what is at work there? I think I know, and then I learn some more. The elements all seem straight forward, but the power and the elegance seems to be in the combination and the way it is applied.

When I look back to the grandpa strategy idea it seems as though the approach was very similar. Perhaps there could be a collaboration that refines the code?
