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.

@KelvinKing I'm watching Your videos and noticed that You completely ignore VPOC and other HVN's as targets and waiting the price crowl through them to Your target. Is it intentional? Why You didn't scale out at least 1 contract at VPOC and prefer to scratch Your whole position in case if price start to return to Your entry from VPOC?

Hi citikot,

Yes, I do use VPOC and VWAP as the first scale out targets. As for other levels like HVNs, that depends a lot on the order flow that I'm seeing at the moment.

Could you tell me which video that you watched? I can explain my thought process better.

Thanks!

I watched last 3 one. 06, 09 and 12 of September. Actually my question was related more to videos from 09 and 12.

Ah ok, on those 2 days I only had 1 contract on. I usually have 2. But since I've been having a bit of a small draw down, I've reduced my size. So in those cases, I'm using a hard target +10.

If you watch some of my earlier videos, where I trade 2 contracts, I do take the first one off at VPOC/VWAP.

Cheers!

All dog shit and clowns... lol.

Regarding those two big offers: Probably shorts protecting their position. You do not know if they are real until they get hit with size.

LoL.. Yeah I try to make it a little bit entertaining in my own weird way...

I'm pretty sure those orders were real, because they didn't move even when it became the inside offer just for a few seconds.

Cheers!
