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

29JUL16/ Friday/ NTD.... Just too many things going on

Flying out to Seattle later today. Probably could have traded today. Just did not have enough situational awareness for me to trade today.

ES trades

One thing that has helped my discipline in planning trades has been using an OCO, Order Cancel Order bracket, tied to my entry order. Hard stops definitely seem to be magents to get hit if too close to the action, started with 1 point and now using 2+ which definitely helps reduce some frustration, have to shoot for bigger profit targets though when doing this.

Tried showing this attached. Here I can enter the initial order which triggers protective stop and profit target when filled, all at once.

I like how you have Pivot points shown. Camarilla pivot points seem to come up sometimes as well. Here is a similar chart with some of these for reference.

I don't get a chance to trade much during the day, after hours has a much slower pace until Europe opens. I have been considering it a training ground for a while. If anything teaches some patience as usually not much going on and have to wait for a set-up you like.

Good luck.

bd92...

I was astounded to see what you wrote in your August 4th journal there, about the "Open after my death" letter, with account and password information. I felt the same way, and wrote the same type of letter a couple months ago! No lie! It is good to see that some of us are cognizant of the hypothetical getting run over by the proverbial bus the next day. :-)
