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.

-- Big Mike

Asleep at 8:40 awake at 2am got up at 3:30am. Sleep = 6.75 Add to deficit 2.75

previous -8.5-2.75= -11.25

Had to totally shut down everything and do a reboot, due to .... .
At a crucial time, NT f--ks me.

Have to relog onto IB
Reload 123
and then
reload ... fingers crossed .. the flakey ...

Here's a clue - any prg that forces (an "unmininizeable" -yes just for you FT) splash screen on you splaying itself over your other prgs is G a r b a g..

oh Degas.. taunt them with your donkey braying but at least their prg (SC) works.

anywho... onwards and upwards.

I didn't get filled on the sell 1332.75.
I'm not sure why as it went to 1333.

Learning Lesson:
  • Once you've sell you limit target don't mess around with it. Leave it alone unless you want to cancel the trade. This means that you will check all the time frames first before entering the order.

Good trading to everyone.
