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.

Thursday Walzer

Today the signal for short came from 14:00 to 15:00.
Unfortunately the first candle was 50 points and the second one body of 74
after a high low of 106 points in 30 minutes.
That smelled fishy!
As the year low was killed - I decided to not take that Walzer.
The momentum was on the second 30 minutes. The rebound came right there.

Hi,

was your stop not hit at 12:46 (low 9111.5) ? Mine was (and I am using Tradersworkstation from Interactive Brokers).
Have you maybe increased your SL pts. to more than 30?

thanks,
alex

Hi alex

That was stop fishing which is found usually in the week of triple witch.
Or witch week and one holiday.
I use a 40 point stop on those weeks as some special movements on low volume
might get you out.
Sorry for mixing up.

To make that one good: go short now - and stay in until 15:00.

Good trades!

Don't be sorry!!

stop fishing happens all the times (regardless if you put stop to 20,30,40,50 pts. or more...).
I just want to understand clearly your rules and exceptions.

thanks,
alex

Unfortunately I am all day out of the house.
The Walzer started according to the rules @ 10:00 - but would have been stopped out already...

Anyway good trades

Even it is tempting - there is no Walzer confirmed:
Yesterday's Hi/Lo range was only 125 points.
