With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Either I‘ve become too picky or setups have in fact become fewer and fewer over the last days. I guess for now I‘ll have to attribute it to the up-down-up-down action in the broad market. Two examples:

LVS. Looks good at first glance, but 36 is definitely a support area that has been tested at least four times in 2011, and recent price action looks like a fakeout with a quick reversal, so this is most definitely not a short candidate.

CLF. Almost the same.

DAX
Inside bar. RSI(7) daily is 71.45; the upwards momentum has definitely weakened, but I‘ll stay with the trend for now. SL(b) 6596.

TecDAX
First down day.

Dow Jones
First down day.

S&P 500
Inside day; ignore.

Nasdaq 100
Inside day.

Stocks
BTU. Entered short at 21.50. SL(ab) 22.05; TP(a) 20.67.

ABX. STP was not hit, so no entry. Made a reversal bar right at the EMA(30) and a resistance level, just below the 50% Fibonacci retracement. Short STP(ab) 33.65; SL(ab) 34.75; TP(a) 32.00.

TCK. Solid downtrend, bounce back to a resistance level at 29, nice doji yesterday. Short STP(ab) 28.55; SL(ab) 29.33; TP(a) 27.38.

T. This looks a bit premature, because the retracement is small (hasn‘t hit the 38.2% level), and there‘s no support. But it did form a nice little reversal bar, and the last move up has been strong. Buy STP(ab) 37.55; SL(ab) 37.00; TP(a) 38.38.
