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.

October 16 overview

I have to share this picture. Ofc I was not envolved all the trades here, but I love to check it over and over again to train my mind, If I am missing the begining, all the thing what I have to do is to w8 for the clear picture like this.

Really. If you are patient enough - which is hard I know, but if you are training your mind, you are going to see picture like this. This is why I am saying, you dont have to shoot on every level. Yes, there is a lots of level out there, but isnt it awsome? I know I know you can cherry pick pictures like this, but I believe there is a cherry almost every day, if you are picking it right (meaning choose your own battlefield )

...but all the information is there what I am using, and what I am call a level:
- Opening range
- Globex High, Low
- Y-Close to see if there is any huge GAP
- Current RTH High/Low
- Targets for trend based on Globex High, Low level (no not pit session pivot, I dont like those levels)

And that's it. It is enough for me, to make my day, and it is not look to overwhelming. Maybe I will finetune it later, but it is looks perfect now As my first and second born child:P

I think those are all valid levels that can be considered as important

if you ever get tired of doing it yourself, or if you want something that's accurate to the tick, then I would recommend @Fat Tails indicators. in my pic below, I used 2 of his indicators:

- the opening range v42 mtf

https://futures.io/download/ninjatrader-7/indicators/937-download.html?view

- and a naked gap indicator (this one is not free, you'll need to pm @Fat Tails)

Thank you. @Fat Tails was helping me a lot to do it my own, so it was a part of the journy. I am lucky enough to have some programing skill, so it is more like to be on the road than to buy a ticket for the bus. Otherwise I have Trend targets as well (I know he also have it based on the opening range, but not based on the globex high low). So small differencies, which important for me, but not for everyone.

It is not a holy grail, but has a lots of meaning to me, how do I love to see the market moves, and when I do feel something is not right. But really thank you for the hint

Quite monday morning

I am not saying it was an easy ride, almost got me out, because I moved my stop to BE too soon. It was a small error, but got lucky Anyhow, if it would have got me out there, I would have reentered almost on the next up bar. More heat, more headache, but the picture was pretty clear today, on every timeframe. No news, so less likely we are going out from the range. Market is on friendly waters, so no need to take fast moves. I was not expected it, so w8 was a good shot. I've missed the move my target out of the way, and grab +5 tick (that is what I used to do, if the market in time meaning before 9:40 and there is no reason to stop the going up move)

See you tomorrow. DFD

Look after one year struggle I believe it is a natural act to bring scaptical and do a quick rain check. But yes the trade is consistency, even if I would have absolutely sure about it would go higher I did not shoot for it. Is it bad or good? Only depend your own plan and goals.
So thank. You I do my best!
