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.

6/21/16 blueprint

Inventory day. The market rallied off a significant swing yesterday and into the globex hours. My two scenarios have it either probing lower at the open to find buyers at some of the support areas marked to continue the rally, or starting up right away to test areas above.

9/22/16 blueprint


Big gap up overnight. It has not hit anything that I can see represents significant resistance so my bias is long until it drops through the 45.58 area. I will be looking for pullback opportunities.

9/23/16/blueprint

Price tested way down into Wednesday's range then bounced back to retest yesterday's high. It is siting inside yesterday's congestion area from 46.10 to 46.52. We have spent a lot of time in this area so I expect that whichever way it breaks it could go far. Longs above 46.55, shorts below 45.98, range trading in between.

9/26/16 blueprint

Futures Edge on FIO
The market is currently back testing Wednesday's POC after a big sell off Friday. The two scenarios have it either bouncing off the POC and continuing down or breaking through the POC and continuing to take back some of Friday's sell off.

9/27/16 blueprint

After retracing most of Friday's sell off yesterday, the market has once again sold off in the Globex session. We are near Friday's POC and RTH low so I would expect price to eventually get down there to test those areas.

Bias is short and looking for a retrace to resistance. If price holds above yesterday's RTH low it would be a signal to look for longs.

End of day: Red scenario played out. Price did test the lower levels mentioned, then had a tradable bounce

9/28/16 blueprint

Price has drifted upward in the globex. It is above yesterday's POC. As long as it stays above the POC I will have a long bias. There is a big gap to fill from Monday to the upside.

A break below and I will be leaning to the short side.

9/29/16 blueprint

After a tremendous run up from the inventory report yesterday price is consolidating in a large range of around 85 ticks during Globex. My bias will be long, expecting the market to test higher. Below 46.60 may signal a desire to test lower levels but there are a lot of support areas to react off of.

If it gets high enough there is a significant swing high at 48.39.

9/30/16 blueprint

Price continues to push up to the major swing created on 9/8 at 48.39. My bias is long but I will be looking for a good sized reaction off that swing high.

10/3/16 blueprint


The market is up in the globex session and basing in a 45 tick channel. Bias is long until we get through the junk in the 48.00 area. There are a couple areas of support for long trades shown. There is a major swing up around the 49.15 area to be aware of.
