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.

Well, I took 2 short trades for 5-7 ticks at that area, BUT between 7:15 and 7:55 (on your chart). You were there too late from my point of view. It's hard to explain...I have my rules you know.

Anyway, I see some red areas on your chart. Why don't you wait for price to come to these areas then check footprints and decide whether you want to trade or not...

Cheers

My first two trades of the morning.

I look for impulse moves then find volume imbalance clusters to lean against on the retracements. Both trades failed as the market did not follow through. Fortunately I recognized the inability of the market to go up and got out both at BE.

Why don't you look for the opposite?

An impulse up, then a trade back?

I guess that could work if the impulse was an exhaustion move and you could somehow spot where the impulse ends, but I am looking for impulse moves that begin larger moves. Other reasons. 1) impulse moves can go on for quite a distance in CL, how to spot the end of the impulse for an entry? 2) The retracement of an impulse that starts a longer move will not offer up that much reward. 3) If an impulse move is the start of a longer move, there is more reward to trading in the direction of the move.

How would you fade an impulse?
