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.

Then i show the 15 minutes chart, find SR levels, and figure out some detailes trading ideas. I don't like to tie my own hands too much, because I will not be able to keep my rules. So these ares just advices from me to me.

money managment

I thinking about MM in TST Combine. Just some silly math.
I want to survive least 9 days consecutive losses. A TST Combine is 20 days long, with 9 losing days and 11 winning days i have more than 50% of winning days.
So, during the 9 losing days the max draw down is $1500, daily 1500 / 9= $166, 16 tick SL with 1 contract / day or 8 tick SL with 2 contract / day.
In the worst case i have 9 losing and 11 winning days. I must use least 1:1.64 R/R to make successfully the combine:
9*(-166) + 11*x*166 = 1500;
x = 1,64
I would like to pay just once for the combine, this is the reason, why i made this calculation: i must develop my system to work in these conditions. (the $145 for the 30.000 combine is brutal price for me, this is quarter of my monthly income... )
I start a new demo attempt to trade these rules, i would like to post my trades and experiences.

You seems to have good trading strategy.
Yes combine fees are expensive for eastern europeans.
I recommend to open account with Oanda and you can
trade CL via CFD contract USOil as low as 0,0088 EUR per tick.

Thank You very much Your advice!
I tried trade with forex brokers, and i have some live account at Exness, XM, XTB, Ava... In the last times i traded DAX successfully, and made some money, but it's very hard to grow the account to a "living" level.
I started my forex account with $100, i must doubled 7-8 times to growing to a normal capital (100->200->400->800->1600->3200->6400->12800->25600...). I know, there are peoples who can made it, (for example Forexsaint in FF form), but i can't, it's too hard to my mental habit. So this is the reason, why i change to futures and to TST. My goal is to become a full time trader, i think it's easier with TST

Building habits takes time.
Its easiest to build 1 habit at the time.

I don't know have you seen this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-OVZcfFYpc

Its best out of 3 webinars that FuturesTrader71 has done about habits.

Easier if you get funded
But its harder to get funded by TST than self funding.

I try to hold my MM rules Monday better. And i make a checklist with some aspects of the trade, maybe i can better filter my entry.
Today I spent a lot of time in front of the machine to wait for a good movement, and at the end i lost my patience.
