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.

Another ECB day...


GFIs1 View Post

What I learned:
1) On days with ECB or IFO numbers - some patterns start - but give negative points.
NEW RULE ADD: NO trade on ECB or IFO day!
GFIs1

So today too - even if it worked

Today - just theoretically - while Draghi's speech I checked patterns for a Walzer:

entry short @ 11166
exit 1h later @ 10949
result 217 points
from there - pattern already broken - so NO long

As example tells, the full Walzer was not developing.

Just to explain difficult news days.

BUT one thing we learned today (if taking any trades):

The trend is your friend!

Walzer programmed


This weekend I took the time time to program the Walzer rules.
Just not finished yet I try to see ALL patterns that worked in the last 12 months.
As I did not take all of them. I will backtest and if the result is here we will see
what GFIs1 missed

But anyway:
I do not like to sit at the screen all day to wait for a nice upcoming pattern:
So I program it to send me a message on my phone before I need take action.

Looking forward to easy collected points

Hi,

can you please remind me your rules for aborting the second leg of the walzer?

For now for example, first leg was profitable, why is the pattern broken and therefor abort short?

Thanks,
alex

Easy: ALL four candles from the first (with >50 points body) need to have the same color. If one is not showing this
then no follow-up trade is allowed.
The Walzer consists of four consecutive same color candles and two opposite color candles to a full double trade.
If the pattern is not like described I call it "pattern broken".
