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.

I am back short YM at 17481 and ES at 2095.75 ideally I want these two close below in next 30 mins or else again I have to take a bite and call it a day...


Closed YM short at 17471 for 10 points, I didn't take it out in the morning anticipating a trend lower that can still happen but damn I lost patience. Still have ES (September) short and ES (Dec) long so basically flat...that's my trading ladies and gentlemen any help will be appreciated.

Note: I am ready to short at higher prices or ready to close ES short around 90 and keep long for a bounce and ultimately get flat before FOMC...that's the plan

Yesterday evening/night I was planning to take short but didn't took it why?

1. FOMC
2. Price Action looked like as if it's going to gap up

I still have my ES pair looking to close short after big flush down which we haven't seen it yet...

Meanwhile I am trying to refine my entries using Volume Ladder/ Footprint and Cum Delta..work still in progress i.e setting up templates etc.
