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.

May be a bad idea but I like my probabilities here so I am trying to catch a falling knife i.e crude...put a buy order for QM at 30.85, with mental stop at one full point. I like my chances if it get's there even though seasonality is not in favor.

Got into TNA 100 shares at middle thinking it might breakout obviously wrong but I like my chances here to add a few more at 47 and 46.50 because Russell is way oversold on daily level.

Just one trade today, closed 100 shares of TNA in the morning...from then my mind was in hesitation mode all day because of YM stop out over night and rip to my target then down again...

My developing strategy is based on trend following but market context totally changed intraday so I have to lower my time frame and play accordingly (same thing happened in August) but this is more of a controlled selling than what we saw in August (it was pure panic in August). Maybe we are going to enter into more correction territory or maybe not I am waiting to get signal on daily to start a swing position.
