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.

Hand chart

One of the 2 hand charts I draw. This one - which I haven't done for 2 weeks, needs yesterday's H&L (and times), the overnight session- 15;15 to 7:30 not 8:30- H&L (and times) and the preopen data.

Dir 30

Dir 30 is a visual way for me to help decide on the first move after opening.
Today it would indicate down towards 1319.25 and lower.
That is FEa=LE

Thursday -cabbage?

It seems like fate - negative fate.

When I do get up with the alarm 3:30pst and I am more or less ready by open then we get a narrow range day.

{This is why I am so pissed that woofer dan stole the best trading week (the one two weeks ago with great wide ranging days) for his drinking partying binge. It not only his life he is pissing down the drain.}

Oh well, onwards and upwards.

This morning I was up at 3:40am - a big accomplishment. I'm very tired.
Then I entered the overnight data and saw it was going to be a dismal choppy little inside day -argh!!


The overnight range was a pathetic -4.00 pts and the pre-open range -2.00!
(Normal would be twice that as a minimum , i.e. 8 pts and 4pts - these are separate ranges an can be overlapping.)

----------
no fills on o/n orders, surprise surprise.

I've cancelled them.

Maybe I'll put in a little trade in the "chop/slop" and then snooze.

Good trading to everyone.
