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.

I took a ZB long on the thought that since we are in a "risk-off" environment...

I'm familiar with the risk-on, risk-off distinction...

I'm not
What exactly is a risk-on and risk-off environment?

Answer 1: Risk On, Risk Off Definition from Financial Times Lexicon

Answer 2: wait for Alex's explanation tonight.

Not sure if I get it...I'll wait for Alex' response. I'm sure he can explain it clearly

I never really got it either () -- that's why I said it would be interesting if it turns out to be useful after all....

I'm waiting for it too. It will be interesting, I'm sure.

Futures Edge on FIO

Which time slot for our live webinar events works best for you?

 
Alright fellas... Don't get too excited

I know what I would like to talk about, but I am just not sure if text is the best way to discuss it.

It is hard to convey all of my thoughts over one post. Haha.

I will try to figure out how to clearly present my thoughts!

Stay tuned!

Little tid-bit I thought I would post here.

There is a confluence around 67/68 that may provide some resistance.

I hope that we can hit this area, bounce to monthly +1SD, then go higher again.

That is my perfect case scenario.

I shall keep an eye on it!

I told you all I was going to write about market environments last night. Well, I didn't!

I am in contact with @tturner86 to see if I can do a little mini-webinar on the subject. I would be able to convey the information much better that way.

He is in contact with Mike and will be getting back to me soon.

Wow. My AoI from last night couldn't have worked better!

My target is +1SD (second arrow is pointing at it)

Once we get there, I will ponder taking a long.

Gold trade still in play.

We got a pullback overnight, but I think we needed to if we wanted to continue lower.

Hoping we can fall out the bottom again!

Morning Analysis:

Volume has been slowly increasing as we go higher.

As you saw on my larger timeframe photo, we hit that resistance area ON.

Here are my thoughts:

We dip at the open towards ON-L and Y-VWAP, then we head to ON-H. After that, we see the highs on 9/22 and R1.

It will be up there that we decide whether or not ATH's are in sight.

So, I will test long around the open!
