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

{edit this was a sim trade for the thread fundamentals for new traders which ended up here thw an error on the screensnap ultility - no cash trades today.}

We have closed out on one contract are holding the second.
(This is called "scaling out" of the trade as opposed to all-out at one price.)
We have adjusted the sop on the second to the cost price 1589.75

You scale out if you believe the setup is still valid but you are concerned that the price action shows weakening.

As you can see this is not a day to trade.

Breakout means a breakout is likely that is > 1614 and your estimated high is only 2 points lower.
You needed to buy below 1600.50 for 12PPP and that wasn't possible with the low 1605.50 @8;30
You need to sell above 1615.50 but that violated the buystop of 1614 as you never sell above your buystop.

So the rules say-
GO BACK TO BED
