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.

what are acceptable performance numbers?

so idea is to put some filters/context without too many rules to get PF above 2.0 for every year so that in worst case scenario I would break even around PF 1.0....

second thought was to try to find common denominator among various setups that yield somewhat similar curve and PF/W % numbers. except this turned into a never ending optimization curve fitting....

I guess I don't know anymore what system numbers I should before I should start trading???
