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.

Good morning,

any reason why not taking the walzer today at 10:00 (10532). Your conditions were fulfilled, I think...

thanks,
alex

Hello Alex

This morning only one Open-Close 30min candle showed more than 50 points: that was the 10:30 to 11:00
candle with 53 points. The next candle was not red:
So NO Walzer until now.
Will show it in a chart in next post.

Good trades!

Walzer conditions made visible

Here we can see the signals on every 30 min candle. There are several signals above (for long) or
underneath (for short) to see. Only one condition led to a Walzer (see posts from yesterday) and
resulted in two trades totalling 93 points.

Some backtests done over these calm days brought some extra Walzer's that had
not been taken.
For next year these untaken trades could be a extra booster. As i am not always in front
of the screen - which is the nature of this "automate" - I had lost some extra bringing
signals. Hope to have those now handy when they occur :-)

Of course in this journal only the discussed trades when everyone could follow the system
are the main base.

Looking forward to new Walzers!

Big fan of your simplistic approach, did you try/backtest this approach on any other instruments such as ES, YM, CL or GC?

I am experienced in the moves of the Dax. Knowing the optimised stops and gain zones.
Unfortunately in all other instruments I am a novice.
It is highly probable that we find similar patterns in other instruments. Maybe someone tries:
the rules are all here.
