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.

30-Nov-2012 : Took two trades. There is nothing specific to first Short trade, just a momentum trade...perhaps this had advantage of overstretching of price from every scale. Though what i had expected as my target fizzle out due to vanishing momentum. This was also the reason i started thinking this day as neutral ( here i mean not exactly Neutral Type as per definition from MoM, rather a day developing symmetrically around Opening range/price with poor facilitation ) and i mentally detached from whatever was going on.

I was seeing how NF was turning up bit by bit...if i were to enter somewhere i could, but i was not in mood to react to any development. I felt myself statue.

1) Why i should enter at A ? - No concrete reason. It was just a normal creek bar in favor of larger daily upmove. Rather this development was still under VWAP, it could be short lived and restricted at VWAP.

2) Why i should/shouldn't enter at B ? - Now it was better positioned in comparison to A, completed a pullback and started heading up above VWAP. But my mind said to i might still risk against Opening bias.

What other favoring factor for A and B which i was missing that price momentum has increased little on daily basis so they could have been used for entry betting on momentum only.

3) I finally came out of statue mode near C - something echos that i am doing wrong , i am missing the trend and trade both. I just pick a reason that delta is spurting and price coming out from little consolidation and took the Long. ( a chart for 3 min FP is shown just for clear visibility of this....though i track FP on 15-min ) Definitely delta would have been building on A and B also, but being statue i was senseless for anything.

I was really afraid to take Long near upper 2nd SD....rather shorted with max risk.

Exited short. If its going against Opening Bias ( which is bullish to neutral ) then either its reversal or neutral type development. Perhaps next trade may come late.

I am thinking , was it so easy to go Long from trend perspective ?
Or was it so easy to Short from fade perspective ?
Clearly it depends upon situation, risk measurement and synchronizing with structure.

Completed another scalp Short...but had in mind that its nearing 2-Day VAL and little neutral structure.

If this is neutral structure then its headed again towards high and beyond that....but i don't remember if NF moves like that....may be possible...will take Long if i get an appropriate spot.

One silly reason for Long is that bears are perhaps loosing on time. Took Long with max risk.

03-Dec-2012 : Took total three trade. First short went as expected, second short i should have left but took. After second short , it threw possibility of going up, but it didn't materialize in my Long trade and turned BE.
Overall , it seems respecting demand zone pretty much and hence might turn more clear from decision perspective. There is an another four step development ( not marked in chart ) and price seems penetrating on 2nd upper SD.
I guess tomorrow a MIRZ type trade situation can arise easily.
