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.

It's itching to get short but need confirmation from my system...again it is not the system any system will work, it's the following it and the execution makes or breaks a trader.

I didn't fade my system which is still long because of FOMC mins, burnt many times before trading FOMC...

What is wrong with me, I didn't take any long trades but looking to fade LOL. Price cleared monthly VWAP at 2068.50 and hovering near last weeks VPOC at 2074.

I am expecting a bull trap here as it did in previous FOMC's if not all time highs....

Needless to say I got stopped out...I got sell signal on my system this morning, will short using SPY instead of ES. Two losses I didn't follow the system, I tried to out smart the system...sticking to the system and execution is very important as Mark Douglas says...

Price might go to into sideways action after big trend so my system will negate the sell signal if price closes above 2087 in next 90 mins as of now sell signal at 2085. Ofcourse, I coudn't get it at 2085.
