With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

Luckily we are not fighting Clint, where one mistake and your are out. Not every bounce is a sign of buyers or exhausation from the sellers.

Insated of worrying about targets , try to figure out HOLD time. What's the point of figuring out 2 points targets when the move underway is 15 points?

Anyone who is long in TF, CL, NG, NKD , PL, PA , ZS or tried long has a message from Clint

" Clint Eastwood - You're going to look awfully silly..."


Ahh man @srgtroy they don't make movies like they used to.

'No, No I was just going.' Said all the bulls today.

It's in hours. 1 to 2 hours. I will scale out but i will not fully get out of position till the trend changes or ATR is hit if i am in the trend. I have been short CL, TF, NG, PL, PA etc for 3 hours today.

" Imaginary War Zone".

Till market participants are fully engaged and present in the market, i find it uselless to make forcasts like TF will do this and that.

Guaranteed Returns. What? Have you lost your mind? will be a logical question. Similarly on the flip side traders who make forcast have lost their mind without realizing it.

Yes ADR got hit. Lunch hour. I am out and flat. But no longs. Need one of following 2 for me to go long.

1) A flush down and then reversal of it.

2) Market internals at least turn somewhat +ve.

Are there any longs? Yes. Day trading is not very efficent with CC and the like. Once trend is set due to macro catalyst, they stay the course for some time.
