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.

Nice thread! Seems we have some similar issues, I too used to be pretty focused on order flow, and I too have reduced how much I look at the DOM.

Will follow with interest!

another poorly played end of day for me - was long avg 2198 and took small profit.....why! I know why, i had too much size on - 6 lots.......making 400 bucks with that amount will eventually kill my account when i take the hit. I should be making that with 2 lots and 3 x that with 6 lots. Poor trading for 2nd day running. Not happy.
