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

I did miss the bounce because I went to DMV and my phone battery died on me too but looks like I missed another 50 point bounce

Short term breadth still bad to consider any improvement in big picture...

After trying multiple times, I got back some 65 YM points. Got long oil QM based purely on speculation that bottom is in but realized contract change is today so might have to stomach volatality but try to hold it for a swing.

Too bad that I tossed my discipline out of the window this week, went for bottom hunting.

Damn, maybe we will go green...this might be the reversal everyone is looking for...just oil needs to bounce and it will be the squeeze of the century.

Still holding on to TNA and Oil because I see a huge improvement in breadth in matter off few hours yesterday (amazing!!!). Now if I am right we need a low than yesterdays close to create divergences all over the place and bottom might be in..

Didn't do anything...It looks subconsciously fear started creeping in again not to give up profits and started thinking about trend change and too much uncertainty going on right now. This is when Auto-Trading will come handy once you define your method but even that auto method must change as per conditions of the market else I will be taken to woodshed AUTOMATICALLY...
