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.

Did your housekeeping issues get resolved? Those are above my pay grade tech wise but I can try to help.

Yes, I was able to get it figured out. Thanks for following up. Hope your mom is okay and makes a full recovery.

Usually I try...

to cut items from my view, but @Fat Tails worked up an awesome version of the Klinger Volume Oscillator called anaKVO. Most of the time new ideas don't make it on to the trading charts, but this one might be here to stay. Somewhere in the current discussion I'd love to talk about how guys use volume or a volume based indicator in their trading.

On that idea...there is NOTHING on my current chart view that does not have Harry's fingerprints all over it. Not to say that I'd be the greeter at Costco or working at a hot dog stand without him, BUT he sure makes life easy with his beautiful, elegant, and robust contributions to futures.io (formerly BMT). Thank you Harry you are a gentleman and a scholar...I'm a better, more effective trader and my family has more opportunity because of your generous contribution here.

Dan

I'll post it over on the Indicator Thread . . . do you happen to know who developed the Adaptive CCI db that you use ? Perhaps I could talk them into making the adjustment ?

Hope your Mon has a quick and full recovery . . .

Ciao, rick

This is a late start today..

trendies say "long" and indicate a buy side bias. I've learned and I'm sure you guys have heard it 1000 times...trade what you see, not what you think. So I will suppress what I think as best I can.

Okay, everyone gets it...

there are key elements of preparation that must take place as part of a routine everyday to put the warrior in the best position to win or defend with the least loss of blood. @alejo develop your "routine" and in the beginning include everything that might matter. You can streamline your process when you have data that suggests something is less valuable than the time it takes to review.

For whomever might also be viewing...can I move on and not include this when I post or should I visit for a while and provide detail?

Feels like a sell setting up...

but I have to leave early again today. Bonds drifting off highs. 6e cant stay bid. Very infrequently would I lay out a trade then walk for more than a couple minutes. But I'll do that here SIM if it sets up a little firmer.

In thinking about it it's just not that genuine...meaning that to throw a SIM trade to illustrate a point that I would NOT take in the regular account is not good form.

There is a set up that was missed because mammals do need sleep. I'll show that instead. So the following is a set up not taken, simply to illustrate a thought process.

The reddish and blueish boxes...


are a mechanical bar count. When a box is drawn it signifies that we MAY, we may be at a level of price exhaustion. In this case, if you look back at the previous 4 "boxes" you can see why the superstitious might think that could occur again on the right edge.
