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.

Needed Flexibility

04-Oct-2012 : No trade taken. This day was easy, but little self rigidity put me on back foot. I see how similar this day was in comparison to 28-Sep ( Here )...mostly same in first half, just a bit difference after demand zone test. That day demand zone was very prompt and visible but today demand zone ( 5810 ) was not so prompt on 3-min chart ( i digged it in other way ). I wonder how exactly those trades of 28-Sep fits on today's chart in my trading time duration.
Apart from mistake of being rigid , another visualization mistake i did was expecting the structure of Location B at Location A....if B would have happened at A, it would not have been the day it happened. Just species of different regime.

When it start the day like this....then certainly no logic works....and no "why" will work...its just "what".
Will try to follow momentum for next possible entry.

Holding a long around 5760. My obvious counter intuitive action.

It smashed my stop. Turns out a silly mistake due to feeling of miss out the meat.
A trade different from plan...whim trade.

This fits on 3rd category - Being Comfortable ( With Market structure ) but not following Trading Plan.

Nice trades DevD

Have you tried BANKNIFTY same leverage ,positive correlation to nifty .......good volume & nice volatility.
It is good with nifty trading when there are no clear setups in NIFTY .
