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.

Till yday morning i had got feeling of this week turning like a doji , that would not be beneficial for me.
Passed next 3/4 Short and 4/4 Long that appeared yday noon. Extension were very low even on yday that was a inviting factor for still entering the trades. But having two looser i got little defensive in selection. Closed the week with loss.

A disappointment - thrown out of a good trade.

Its Thursday , and a critical decision to re-enter long

1) On seemingly breakout from a range.
2) On almost 65% coverage of extension from Dwap based on stat.
3) when i have to go flat on friday.

At best i will follow day low as a stop, till MAs catchup

Keep it up

Hi Devdas,
Congratulations for maintaining such elaborate trading journal on a regular basis. Keep up the good work. It is good to find guys trading NSE in futures.io (formerly BMT) forum. I am sure writing daily journal has helped in your trading. I was reading somewhere - to inculcate new habits or to change bad one, besides other things, you need a supporting community. I am sure futures.io (formerly BMT) is the right place. I have been wanting to write journal from a very long time, but just didn't do it. I think now I have enough inspirations to start one.
Happy trading.
VKS

Go ahead with your journal. I assure you only this step will lead "New You" by miles from "Old You".
If you have observed/read older pages from last year on this journal, you will find that i had started trading with 3-min chart , over the time i am surprised now that i am trading only on 15 minute chart in a weekly framework.
Not only that, i could easily give up the charm of hunting the reversal trade by leaving 5-day continuous VAH/VAL from my chart. I really dont need those reversal trades anymore and from now i will try to close my eyes more from them.I have now on my chart the only stuff that turns my vision as a trend trader.

This much has changed in me over a year.

It was Monday and from chart i already knew that i might not get entry today. Stayed away, but waited full session.
Discretionarily , i could use momentum of last week and as a continuation of last Long trade from arrow marked today to enter long trade, but that was not a valid entry as per my methodology rules.

No change, holding the same original position.

There will be many opposing factor for this short from different context but i am better blind for that. Have paid many times in past. Only pathetic feeling was that after 3/4 short price action never turned in 4/4 short premise , keep on oscillating between 1-2-3 type. One thing i felt that could make my trade look better - that is to 'Add' after price fell off from weekly dwap ( 5994 ) twice.But leaving this thought for another time. Hope this week is not on path of making a dozi candle and i will have a chance of good profitable extension.
