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 don't know what's happening, my stop on oil short top ticked. This is when I question stops but when I don't use I will be taken to a ride.

I am about to shutdown for the month after consecutive losses..I hate this and I find myself in this situation while shorting so shorting is not my forte (I know that but still my reversal mentality doesn't listen).

Hi !

I hope everything will be alright. Trading is sometimes pushing our limits to some extreme level. Be careful to trade only money you are open to give away. You won't be emotionally affected and be able to trade rationally. Think about it when you'll come back.

USOIL had reversed up with a nice double bottoms pattern. I don't how long it will last. Uptrend seems strong but already on its way.

My bias/context today

After trading like a fool for last two day's even-though I am right in my prediction still lost so I plan to take trades
at different pre-defined levels only and no impulse trading and only three trades per day.

Driving Force - NQ to the down, OIL and Russel to the up (Look for weakness in these two)

Day prediction - Going to be trend down day, wait for confirmation on $VOLSPD and SELL bounces at KEY levels ONLY

Reasons - Breadth deteriorating, Resistance on daily charts, divergence in $VOLSPD at higher time frame

Key levels for shorts - YM (16967 and 17013) and ES (1992 and 1996)

Key levels for longs/reversals - Look for support levels on TF for now I see 1082 then 1074 area.
