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.

Outlook


This week was very shaky which triggered some trades here - either with a stop on BE or
with winners.
From tomorrow Friday to next week Thursday we do have a lot to take into consideration:
1) Friday IFO day + US numbers
2) Thursday next week last of month
3) Friday 1st May no DAX traded
This all after a high volume week we had seen - with many ups and downs.
Expecting some good setups for a Walzer here.

Good trades

My stops in this system are very widely spread: If I can watch price at screen I will do it manually.
If sure that the price drops more - the stop is on BE.. and I leave the screen.
My job is not to sit and move the stops in fact in any case.
So the pattern WorKS or NoT.. - hence a stop.
In very volatile moments it looks not bad to trade that system fully automated.

Walzers are best at the start of a cash session. When the volume is still high.
If the 3rd candle is not following - there is no need to follow the wrong way - nor to stumble
into the next Walzer. Doing a Walzer after a successful Walzer during the same day is a good
thing - I showed it 3 months ago.
But 20 points SL is enough to step out: if the 3rd candle does not really follow - then we have
to get out.
My 30 points "noise" stop is only done in my other thread.
A Walzer should "shoot" in the same direction: if it is not, then a good money management can
protect from bigger losses.
