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

Another thing to notice is there is no extreme tick yet to even think about reversal maybe I should wait extreme tick and consider reversal....

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
I am second thoughts on my bearish bias because of this price action...it's not able to break down convincingly, so I closed my ES positions for small profit...

I want to go long with today's low as stop but I would like to see retest of today's low and bounce...

I couldn't get long because price moved fast...Now it is above Y-LOW and trying to breaking opening 25 min range....I want to get long if it holds above Y-LOW and see how it goes from there

Edit: Just now got TICK exhaustion too but it might be continuation also...and surprisingly on a down day I didn't get any sell side TICK exhaustion...

Closed one at 1942 still think it will reach VWAP at 1933...there is all support from 1937, 1936 and 1933...will have to manage existing one with average of 1936....
