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.

-- Big Mike

Okay...

actual price bars painted by a non smoothed HA calculation. (Top Panel) I have left the close dot on to show that when it is different from bar color the "condition" may be about to flip...ie, price action is going the other way.

I'll go lock those settings in and move to what is next.

If you were going to...


build a trading method on a series or confluence of non-colinear technical indicators which ones and how many would you use? How would you score them within the system? Would you have one that was the entry trigger?

Hey Harry

@Fat Tails Thanks for stopping by. I will contact you in a few days to see which fs series I am still active for. I hope you are well and doing great. I love looking back over the notes taken from discussions with you. Your gifts are rich and important for people that want to understand big picture and specific details. Where I used your advice I became better. Where I resisted your advice I learned the hard way. So nice to see you active in the forums.

Dan

A work in progress...

to say the least. Looking to exclude and or revise. Next step is to get a real and reliable data feed for ES.

(Add "T"'s at the end of each word. I couldn't post it if I didnt remove them. So SCREENCAST in brackets


There is a button for it. It is on the top right when making a post

When helping people with bbcode, you can type the real bbcode as an example if you wrap it in NOPARSE bbcode

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)

Generally...


a divergence "call" is subjective, that is to say discretionary. What qualifies and what else should be or needs to be present to make a case for trade?

Easy enough to mark time looking for divergence, but often beautiful divergences result in ugly trades. So what does divergence need to bring along to make her a good date?
