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.

Review of May 3 Trading Action

Here are my comments on the opportunities Im watching based on the days price action.

CL Crude Oil

Oil was lower again today trading down to the 15 SMA and posting another bearish full bodied candle. I am neutral on Oil at this stage while the price remains above the rising short term moving averages.

Week in Review - 2 - 6 May Pt I

Trades for the Week:

- Entered a Long position in Sugar
- Stopped out of Feeder Cattle at breakeven

A week of lost open profits but no capital losses.

Ill start the weekly update with comments on my open positions at the end of the week.

QO Mini Gold

Gold continued higher early in the week attempting to surpass the psychological $1,300 level but was unable to hold above this level and fell back quickly. Gold finished strongly on Friday after the weak jobs report to finish the week basically unchanged.

SB Sugar

Sugar was higher early in the week attempting to surpass the 61.8% retracement mark of the contract high and low before falling sharply to retest the 61.8% retracement mark of the recent range. Prices are still holding above this level and the 40 SMA and the uptrend has not been damaged yet.

Week in Review - 2 - 6 May Pt II

Next up Ill have a look at the other markets that I have traded or been watching during the week.

GF - Feeder Cattle

Feeder Cattle rallied this week to retest the underside of the rectangle channel. The rally has stalled at this point.

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


CL Crude Oil

Oil traded in a small range between the 200 SMA and the 15 SMA this week. The 200 SMA appears to be providing resistance but while prices remain above the short term moving averages I keep an open mind on the next direction for Oil.

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


ZC New Crop Corn

Corn poked above the 200 SMA again this week but quickly failed this level trading down sharply and finishing the week back at the 40 SMA.

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


HG - Copper

After the strong close to finish last week Copper quickly reversed this trend to fail all the moving averages.

DX US Dollar Index

The US Dollar continued lower early in the week but reversed sharply during Tuesdays trade and rallied for the rest of the week. The US Dollar is still trading below all of the moving averages and there is no evidence at this stage that the downtrend has come to an end.

Lastly, Ill review some other markets of note.

ZM Soybean Meal

Soybean Meal was higher to start the week surpassing the July highs and spent the rest of the week consolidating this level.

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


KC Coffee

Coffee rallied strongly to finish the week and closed back above the short term moving averages. If prices can surpass the 200 SMA and the 61.8% retracement of the recent range I may look at entering a Long position.

CC - Cocoa

Cocoa prices failed the 61.8% retracement of the recent range during the week and closed the week back below the 200 SMA negating the bullish break at this stage.
