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.

September 1st 2016 trading

One trade, one full winner.

6E trade
Long off yesterday’s daily low volume transition. Got 2:1, 3:1 and 7:1 targets (the last move was clearly driven by the Manufacturing PMI report for GBP).
P/L: $351,46

Here is the recording:

Since my daily profit target has been met with the first trade, I am done for the rest of the day.

September 2nd 2016 trading

Two trades, two losses.

6J trade 01
Long off yesterday’s transition area that took the price up. Entry was confirmed by volume. A whip took me out.
P/L: -$123,54

6J trade 02
Same situation. Opposite entry. It seemed that sellers took charge and initiated further selling. Took short at the retrace. Stopped out as well.
P/L: -$142,29

Both trades are on one video:

September 5th 2016 trading


Two trades, two minor winners.

6B trade
Long off an earlier breakout volume area. Very risky entry, that was confirmed only by volume spike on the way down. Missed the best spot but managed to grab the first target. Rest was stopped out at breakeven.
P/L: $63,96



After the fact screen:

6E trade
Long off previous multiple bottom volume area. Entry confirmed by volume. 2:1 and 3:1 risk reward levels hit. Last contract out at VWAP.
P/L: $201,46



After the fact screen:

No more trades since there are little opportunities due to Labor day in the US. Daily profit target not achieved.

Total daily P/L: $265,42
Daily resumé: B

September 6th 2016 trading

One trade only, a loser.

6J trade
Short off a previous volume double top. I saw volume starting to add up in the area. I took a shot that those would be responsive sellers. Bad trade, that volume showed up to be a breakout volume.
P/L: -$104,79



After the fact screen:

I was not able to enter any other trade during the rest of the day. Either way I did not see it coming the right way or I missed it.

September 8th 2016 trading

I had issues with the data provider today. Charts were not updating in real-time. After that I managed to take only one trade, a loser. This week keeps getting worse and worse.

6J trade
Long off a previous volume low. Saw the volume and took the chance. Almost got the first target but then the market made one more rotation down and stopped me.
P/L: -$86,04

September 9th 2016 trading

Two trades, two losers. End of a bad week. Not a good selection of decision points today.

6E trade
Short off a previous breakdown volume. The volume started to build up so I took a chance. The price was not moving for a long time to finally kick me out.
P/L: -$86.04



6E trade
Long off a previous transition volume. Took the second test of that area.
P/L: -$104.79

End of Week Overview

All right, lets look at how I am performing after seven trading days.

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


Total Net Profit: $8 (I am at break-even. Which is not good because I am not trading to be break-even. The positive side of the thing is that I am not on the loosing side.)
Maximum drawdown: -$343 (I think this is good. I am far from the maximum allowed drawdown set by TST for 30k account.)
Percent profitable: 31 % (Does not look good. But proves that the selected risk to reward ratio is keeping me alive.)

September 12th 2016 trading

Three trades, two losers and a minor winner. Today it seems that every trade worked except the trades I took...

6E trade
Long off a previous breakup volume. Entry confirmed by volume. Kicked me out right to the tick before turning my way. But I would not get the first target anyway.
P/L: -$104.79



6B trade
Short off a previous breakdown volume. Looking at it back the resistance area does not look strong enough to justify the entry. Should I have waited till the next level I would get a nice trade.
P/L: -$123.54

6E trade
Short off a previous breakdown volume. Took the first target quickly but the rest was stopped.
P/L: $57.71

September 13th 2016 trading


Three trades and three losses. Ouch! It seems that I am entering the trades too soon.

6E trade
Long off… Long of what? I saw some volume action between two POCs so I took a shot and got hammered. Bad choice rather that bad trade.
P/L: -$123.54

Long off a previous breakup volume. Saw the volume but did not wait for the bar to close. Got hammered again.
P/L: -$123.54

6J trade
Short off a previous breakdown volume. Waited for a safe entry but the market decided to take it further up to one upper volume node.
P/L: -$123.54
