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.

30AUG2016/Tuesday/ 1 TICK trade CASH


Still issues pulling trigger, or even getting energy to come to the computer in the morning. I hate hate (did I say hate) getting up in the DARK.... Have to get a house in FL. That would solve that problem... Either that or figure out a way to trade later in the day....

pulling trigger

I feel you on the trigger shyness. It's tough and everytime I overcome it... I get burnt.

But pulling the trigger is key to learning more. Will folow you from now on... see how you do.

Also I like your homework, also similar to what I do... excel based and looking at market generated info. We look at different things though.

31AUG2016/Wednesday/ NTD... Trigger issues still

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
Actually my trigger issues are more of a lack of focus issue and trust in myself.
Working on it though....

Nice journal, I'm definitely following along. I too am getting tired of the tight range chop. I keep telling myself to be patient and just take my setups and don't try to trade outside of my plan. I think times like this really test people whose trading method is not in sync with the market. But at some point conditions will change and there will be opportunity. Better to sit on your hands and save your capital for when better days arrive - that's how I'm approaching it anyway.

Again, I really like the journal.
