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.

weds
6/1/2016
ny am

anticipated the turn at 84.50, did not enter it due to current rules, anticipated retest, didn't take it.

took some hits early, but theory was still in play, a few errors with stops, a few re entries due to size
made an error in having stop in wrong spot, where I wanted it vs where it made sense
scraped out some ticks in the end

they may try drive it higher again here at 89-90.5 to 99...but i'm done for the day

Missed my trade today, was afk, initially waited for the cL inventory then was afk. I'm done on the week.
My plan was to short 96 and long 92.

I am running nt8 ver10.
There is a nt ver11 and some updates and newer indicators to what I have.

I have my system down fairly well and am leery to do it as it may create problems and errors aor take a few days.
Going to wait till thursday or friday. I like tues and weds trading, fridays I like the least. This will give me a few days to work with the techs before the weekend.

Can't decide if I want to fully uninstall after I've deleted my custom indicators, files.

My sleeping patterns are so off due to my day job and market hours. I may take some melatonin once in awhile to insure I get enough total rest.

did alright, first trade went for me right away +2 but ended -2x2. but second trade went against me almost immediately, same level,
after seeing it not work right away I was looking for ways to get out. The final runner was trying to see if it could tag 2017 or so before lunch.
Actually missed the continuation move right before 10am, watched it, but I wasn't warmed up right away mentally as I tried to set up my tracking strategy. It also wasn't a trade in my current parameters.

Do you place standing limit orders or wait to see how price reacts to your trading levels?

Are you primarily using footprint to identify your trading levels?

I at times use a resting limit, but more often have an order set than drag it in. I use the edge of consolidation aor try for coniutation.
