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.

Just taken for @kulu and @Privatebanker.

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)

A fair balanced day. Another instance of yday dissipative profile. Today , bulls seems defending their LTZ.

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

 
For tomorrow, i am looking to capture a major leg , probably down. Factors

1) Top Heavy Structure on 5 day.
2) Obvious placement at DVAH.
3) Poor Channel UpMove.

Nett result of day = -10 + 6 = -4 Pts after comm.


This was the type of day, when one wrong step catalyze more wrong steps. From yday assessment of more factors pointing downside break , made me blind to see what market actually doing in present time. When i see at this time, i feel i was hypnotized by market action and doing every thing which master orders slave to do.

I will detail little about first looser trade, its specific to the kind of entry bars i look for. This post trade analysis is nothing to do with any other aspect of context rather it is to not-repeat as it was poor execution. Bar type 1 ( 2-3 little bars ) and 2 are correct entry bar ( there are other some different type, will explain if they encounter in future ) from my approach. I am emphasizing more on entry type bar, cause structure unfolding post entry is decisive for stop and judgment to hold or scratch. If entry is not on optimum bar then assessment of stop/scratch will naturally go out of sense. Bar 3 was such bar which is not an entry type bar. What it costed me - only a delayed structure unfolding leading to large stop. Even if my entry was on bar 2 which is even lower from perspective of Short trade, but for that, bar 3 would have become clear signal of being wrong trade , costing lower stop. But i was hypnotized.

After first looser, i wake up to some extent , and realized its not going to break rather still rotating and i have to position my trade near extreme for fade. Second short was hesitated short , LTZ seems me biggest enemy to me , just popping up prices whenever it reach there. Closed the day after that, just felt i was loosing focus and energy both.
