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.

-- Big Mike

jitasb,
why do you use 20 EMA for 1 min chart?

Have tried a few....the 20ema seems to work for me.

Notes:

EA > Premise was to be short once the Open Pivot had failed. It then got a bit spiky a few minutes in and spread became a bit of a concern...leading me to reduce and then exit the position. When it failed the open pivot again..I was short again which was fine, but hesitation and fear prevented me from going for full position size.
Overall > Although profitable ..should have been better.

EXC > Premise was to be long on the pullback after the initial rise. It failed to get new high and the tape was looking weak (more pace on the selling on bid) so reduced as it came back past my entry. Then exited all.
Overall > ok.

Notes:

CIT > Premise was to be short as it failed to regain the open. It was bouncing around a bit, so I was actively managing , but then closed out as it kept above the open.

FOXA > Premise as short once it held below the open pivot and the market was holding positive. The second partial came back to breakeven. Maybe missed a trick on not re-entering as it did remain negative. But I had closed down by then and missed the big fall.

TWX > Premise as short once it held below the open pivot and the market was holding positive. The second partial came back to breakeven. Maybe missed a trick on not re-entering as it did remain negative. But I had closed down by then and missed the big fall.
