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.

Hey Telly, Big Mikes VolumeGraph is a good indicator, so is the volume splitter from this link Volume Splitter
personally I have a Time and sales that filters 250 contracts or greater and one for all values.

I just took a screenshot of my color scheme, there aren't many block orders coming in at 9:30pm but if there was i would see them here and in another box.

edit 12mest ok look at it now. I basically just pull this up real quick and see if there are more red numbers or green numbers before i take a trade. nothing fancy about that, its actually really crude !

I'm just trying to make a few bucks everyday

I spent the day playing around with settings, trying to develop a decent scalping strategy based on some of the HolyGrail indicators. (Getting ready (mentally) for surgery next Wed. Too unfocused to trade). Glad you had a good day!

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Congrats ntsst3 on your trading. That's fantasic. I've configured the charts but my indicators are slightly off from your chart. By the way, nice blog.

Good luck TheWizard with your surgery.

Go Steelers!!!

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
