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.

Saturday wrap-up

Last night (friday) Woofer Dan had his music going until after midnight. That means when I woke up this morning it was after 10:30am PST and way past my goal of keeping the weekday sleeping schedule. What does this mean sports fans?

According to the "Woofer Dan" indicator Monday will be a range expansion day.

How so? well odds are I won't be able to be back on schedule til Friday so if I sleep in on Monday then the range should expand from Fridays 9pt range to a tradeable range 15pts plus.

Other news: walk score 5 for 7 (missed Thurs and Friday evenings working). Its a beautiful day so time to break away from the beast and go for a walk!!

Good trading to everyone.

market profile

Hi everyone,

I don't use market profile but I have received an email from a free Larry Levin subscription I have.
I've posted on a blog (respecting futures.io (formerly BMT) cp reg) and as there is the link to subscribe if you want in part 3 I'm sure its Ok.

it's in 3 parts because the blog kept saying too long..

in any case it was way too much work/time to post it so you'll have to subscribe from now on.

I hope it helps.

Good trading to everyone.

In the first trade for Monday

I am long at 1325.75 with a sell stop at -5, i.e. 1321.75.
My target is 1337.75

For Monday RTH I currently have:
est high 1338
est low 1328.25

-------
I am very tired. The neighbours below my started fighting at 7:30 Saturday night. I thought well in 15 minutes she give up screaming at him. After 30 minutes I gave up the I idea of sleeping and went to the local coffee shop. I returned around 9:45 and she had finally stopped yelling at him. I didn't get to sleep right away and woke up at 1am , 2am and 3am. I got up. So I've been up 16 hrs on 4-5hrs of troubled sleep.
---------------
I'm so tired I can't think straight.

Good trading to everyone.

Monday 4 April = cabbage and computer prbs


Trades
Bot 1 1325.75 @ 20:57
Sld 1 1328.75 @ 15:02

= +3.0


Conditions
Slept 8:30 pm to 6:20 am PST. Woken up by screaming neighbor (1am to 1:45am) =9hrs sleep.


Setup = Previous even estimates of HL. Bot at low.

Trade
I entered the trade will still on the computer. I wasn’t online again til 10:30amCT and the high of 1332.75 was past. Waited til towards the end of day to close the trade and get a little more from it.

Post Op
I need to spend time on a reliable indicator for range expansion. My time schedule is so full that I am just not making progress on these ‘optional’ issues. Perhaps it would be best to leave the computer off for a weekday (except for wrap-up number gathering) and work on these long term ideas.

Good trading to everyone.
