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.

HI @alexk1968

Thanks for pointing it out:
Here air temp 28 degrees, water 24 degrees -
time for a dive at the reef.
Tuesday after a bad Monday
Had not been at the screen.

Looking the chart now: IB made 96 points down - which is a lot
with less than 10k volume...
So the down move had an earlier than previewed Walzer pattern.

Good to know that we have some directional days again - this
boosts the chance to see some working patterns.

Good trades
GFIs1

Will consider next time

Very true!
There is the 1-2-3 (orginal from Vienna)
as well as 1-2-3-4-5-6 (danced mostly in South America)
which means 3/4 or 6/8 in music terms.

The 1-2-3-4 is a new Waltz for dancing traders
invented* by GFIs1

Have good Wiener Walzers...

Walzer or not?

Yesterday started on IB with good volume and much power up!
Looked like a new Walzer as the second candle was green too.

NOW I have to add a new rule for extreme movements on the first two candles:

First candle has to be >50 points and NEW not above 75 points from opening to closing within 30 minutes.

If the movement is stronger than 75 points - the third and fourth candle will not be green anyway.

So we omitted a negative trade with Stop Loss.
