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.

-- Big Mike

Indicator Logic Problem... Hmmm


Using my BoxOpenRange that I made doesn't always work... Go figure... Oh well Close enough. But will still look at tweaking to see if can fix. Also again I miss my entry open.

Not much going on in this video. I'm at the point of frustration in my trading. So close to the tipping point that I can feel it. Tomorrow have to work on pulling this damn trigger that I have been so reluctant to pull.

NTD: Sleep and CHOP DAY

Video real short today as I had forgotten to turn on my mic.
Cut out all the stuff where you would see and hear nothing other than chop on my charts.

4 Trades: 1L 3W/ Rules went out window :(

Cash trading day.
I totally lost my trading discipline in the early morning.
Have signed up for Top Performance Seminar with TradingOnTarget as I have issues that I need to be working on.
Will take the two day intensive in February.

NTD: Missed impulse move first 15 mins as decided not to trade then

No Trades today 4me
Well stuck to my guns today even if they were pointed in the wrong direction.
I don't know why I had it in my head that we would take more time to close the gap and that there would be an impulse move retrace. Well I didn't see it until after gap almost filled and then didn't take the retrace as the Risk to Reward at that time was a shade less than one to one.

NTD: Where is that Trading Muscle Hiding....


Step by step I am getting there. Often times it feels like one step forward and two steps back. There are many bad habits that I am working on breaking on my path to becoming a better trader. I have no doubt that some of the bad habits will even remain after I am profitable, but hopefully to a lesser extent. My one winning day this week was not that much of a winning day, plus for the bulk of the day I was smoking the HOPIUM pipe. I had a good idea where the market was going to go, but I had let my trading get away from me rather than closing out my initial trades for a small loss and walking away.
Signed up to work with Adrienne Toghraie from Trading On Target with a "Top Performance Private Online Seminar" that I will be taking the first part of February. In the meantime it is time to trade until the 15th of December, then take off till the New Year. Break out some Feng Shui on my office to eliminate clutter and distractions. Going to be a busy next couple of months that is for certain.
