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.

EurUsd, Dow, Gold - two times a day

Hello to all,

today I will start Journal for one of my trading systems.
This one trades 3 markets on 2 timeframes.
Timeframes used: Daily for direction and 12H for action.
Orders are placed when setup is present. Setups are based on price action. For this system total of 9 setups will be used.

Action points are 11:00 and 23:00h CET. At that time orders will be placed.
Trade management is very simple and it will be performed on Action points, not before. So, idea is to have simple system and without much of work (about 5 minutes work on each Action point).
Markets will not be checked between Action points.

Bet sizing is done in R values, and R is 1%, meaning on each trade 1% of account will be risked (difference between entry and stop loss orders)
Size for order will be calculated based on that value.
There will be no open positions over weekend and holidays.
That is all for now...during my Journaling I will add more details.

EU and DOW orders canceled (no fill)
GC filled and long @1063.80, stop moved to entry level (just shy of 2R currently)

for this Action point:
04/01/16 11:00 AM DOW long@ 17487 stop@ 17188
as a bit too large difference between entry and stop...this will be skipped
