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.

Alex, @rocksolid68 is not "normal", I could be wrong but my early read on him is that he is exceptional.

I will come back in for just a moment and agree with this.

Bob.

Oh come on now!

You and @wldman are just tootin' my horn now.

In all honesty, please don't hold me up on a pedestal. I am beside you both, maybe even below you, but for sure not above. I do appreciate the kindness of course, there is never too much of that going around!

Hello everyone,

I was out of town for my girlfriend's birthday all weekend.

I have not gotten a chance to catch up on FIO yet (she wasn't a fan of me sneaking onto the FIO app). I will try to get back to all PM's, mentions, and replies before tomorrow's open!

I hope everyone's weekend was splendid and that you are all ready for the week ahead.

Thanks for the patience,
Alex

Awesome day today!

We nailed almost every single move!

Good rebound from Friday's losses. I managed to regain all of what I lost Friday and $137.50 more!

So, all in all, a good Monday.

It should be interesting to see what our friend Draghi says as well as Fischer.

Good luck and good trading,
Alex

For those that were in the room today: downside target hit!

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


Next step, is the 17 area, and if that fails to hold, we may see a test of 2110!

It will be interesting to see what happens!

Watching price on my phone whilst in class, so forgive me if I mess up.

It appears to me that the first "box of importance" held to the upside. If this is true, I would be becoming bullish. I would look for more clues though before I took a trade:

-How are bonds, gold, and crude looking?
-What is the TICK saying?
-Does price action indicate bullishness?
-Where are we on larger time frame? Maybe at a good value for buyers?

I would be looking for more clues and if they all fit the puzzle, I would take a long and fade all the way down to that "box of importance". Below that box would in-turn be my puke point.

I think that the reward/risk is pretty dang good for the bulls down here. If I was at the trade station I would be very tempted...

I hope everyone is doing good!
