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 15th 2016 trading

Two trades, one loss and one full winner, at last.

6E trade
Short off a previous breakdown volume. An undisciplined trade since the level was already tested. Poor choice.
P/L: -$123.54



After the fact screen:

6J trade
Long off a previous breakup volume. Entry was confirmed by volume. After the entry the price was rotating for a while before taking off in the right direction. Got all three targets.
P/L: $332.71

No video, the recorder was not on!

End of Week Overview

All right, lets look at how I am performing after twelve 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: $49 (Well, still trying to take off and still no success.)
Maximum drawdown: -$884 (Ok, I got some serious bleeding here. One more ride like this and I am dead in the combine.)
Percent profitable: 35 % (When you keep the risk to reward ratio at least 2:1, your winning percentage must be around one third in order to break-even. This report just proves the statement.)

One more remark. During the first journal challenge, held in April, I blew the trading combine rules in 9 days. Now, after 12 days, I am still alive.

Probabilistico View Post
I think you should go on when in gain and stop when in lose not the contrary.

Hi Probabilistico, I dont think I trade the way you suggest. I have a daily target. When I hit it there is no need to continue trading that day. If I do not hit it I keep trading and it does not matter whether the first trade is a loss or gain. There are basically three conditions under I quit trading:
  1. My P/L is over $300.
  2. My P/L is below -$300.
  3. My time dedicated to trading expires.

6E trade
Long off a previous breakup volume. The trade seemed to work out but then some 2000 contracts were traded within a second. It was a minute before 11:00 am central European time. There was no report as far as I know. Does anyone know what happened there?
P/L: -$48.54
