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.

daily chart

On the weekend I updated my handchart for the ES.

It's amazing how much you notice when you do it by hand.

Good trading to everyone.

reviewing Friday's estimates

The estimates are made before open.
Usually there is more confidence in one end and today it was the high end 1741.50 area.
The first end was determined by the short term indicators and the signal was to buy < 1732.50 once you have confirmation of the indicators and at a time somewhere near the open.
Today it was 1730.25 at 8:39

Once in the trade long you are focused to the second end, the high (1740.50 area).
Today the actual high was 1740.25 (which you can see was the average of the tricycle and crossed arcs high estimates.

ES gann fun


Friday 18 Oct 2013
Just for fun

the red 1755 is a gann rectangle possible major turn level.
the black 1756.75 is a jury rigged 8.5 pts per week from 1340.25
1752 is the number reduction estimate

Separately (on a new untried system I have 18 Oct 2013 as a possible date for a swing high (which would make today's high 1740.25 the high) .

Good trading to everyone.

crude oil to fall?

breaking $98 area looks to cement triple top

(note 5 year and 1 year are continuous contract charts with mixed prices so look to cash market find 50% and then look for resistance near that.)

Hi Rad,

thanks.

no I was exhausted this morning (as per video post above "dentist"). Family stress etc and I just couldn't get up.
I tried and computer prbs as well.

I'm kicking myself around the block and back.
Been waiting all week for this and really needed the trade.

I just don't don't what is going wrong - I must have pissed on God's shoes without knowing it.

I just can't understand...
(and if you've been following the CIT thread you knew this was "baked-in")

oh well, one foot in front of the other.

Someone told me this year 2013 was my personal year of "test and trial" -year 4.
Sure has been!!


keep trucking it can't rain forever ---- I hope

Good trading to everyone.
