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

12/4/15 Friday


12/4/15 Friday
Live Trades: 2
Day’s P/L: -11.92

It has been almost 2 months since my last live trade. Been present every day just observing the markets.

Two trades today:

Trade 1: 6E, -1 tick:
-Stop 12t
-Total Reasonable Movement (TRM): -2t, +12t.
-Held for larger gains due to an initial strong move, but it came back to BE to take me out with 1t of slippage. I think it was the right choice to hold.

Trade 2: M6E, +6 ticks:
-Stop 12t
-TRM of -0t, +17t.
-Used M6E because I was not super confident. Again tried to hold for larger gains but the market was having none of it.

Summary: Finally took some trades. Felt good to break the seal.
Both trades made it to +1R.

Confidence is low right now. Do not trust my set ups due to poor results over the past couple of months. Need to work through this. I have begun practicing with replay using various techniques. Hopefully this will help me improve and work through my issues.

12/18/15 Friday


12/18/15 Friday
Live Trades: 2
Day’s P/L: $50.80

Two trades on CL: -3t and +9t

-Things have come full circle. I started watching a 1 tick chart again. This was introduced to me on another forum as a way to “surf” price action to get a feel for its movement. I’ve done it in the past with some success but got away from it for some reason, probably because it takes up screen real estate and it’s hard to follow more than one instrument. Very interesting though. I felt like I was really getting a good feel for when price was about to take off at key areas. Tried a couple trades at the end of the day for kicks. Looking forward to exploring this further.
