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 choose to ignore signals why? because of fear. Now easy money is done I guess..

Lively day in the YM. 350 down then 200 up. I got punked on my short.

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

I know right!! this damn thing totally confusing me when I miss entries based on my levels it works perfectly and makes me wonder why didn't I take that, when I take it I am getting pounded. I really should sit back and think wtf I am doing and how I did it properly in the year start. March has been a bad month for me. At least you are taking every signal I am trying to mix discretionary trading and going no where.

Maybe this might helpful when we have flat wma things will get wild. In fact for any moving averages we can notice this behavior (just my observation).

Wow! what a waste and ugly of a month this is. I need some miracle to get out of the hole. This morning everything was perfectly lined up to buy ES at 1996 or 1998 just couldn't pull the trigger and tried to short it at ADR_H's this mentality got to change. Just automate it and leave the system for entries but exits manually manage them.

To review I started my year very good but faltered in last two weeks why? I let my old habit of oh look it's too high so short it mentality take over me. It's not the end of world so will try to take it very slow and go back to basics.

Nothing today, I am trying install virtual machine on my laptop to test few things. I am liking this 25 min P&F charts for cleaner look. I don't know if I can backtest with P&F in Multicharts. Hindsight is always right so I shouldaaa hold on to my CL short on Friday but last week when I hold over the weekend I got stopped out exact to the tick so I didn't want to go through that over the weekend.

I am trying to finish my setup of virtual machine and see what happens next.

As for today's context

It feels like they are selling in disguise if you look at internals probably waiting for FOMC on Wednesday for next move. I feel it will be choppy till then but slightly favoring to the upside.
