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.

Here's a pic of the ugly mess.
So as per normal, I am rushing around at open and miss the first end (which was the LE) and I'm against the trend.

Really the best thing is go to bed. (4 hrs sleep last night)

Well with WOOFER DAN who has left his wife and kids of 17yrs to drink and smoke all day and shack up with his "girlfriend" playing movies both Sat and SUn nights - my sleeping schedule is off and from past experience it will take all week to get back to getting up at 3:30am (PST) to be ready by opening.

I'm a night owl by disposition and getting up at 3:30am isn't easy. As I need 8.5 hrs that is 7:00PM bedtime with all work done and hand charts made up and supper eaten by 6:00PM.

I also need my exercise and fresh air to feel good and my health effects my moods - it's hard to think straight or be positive when I'm tired and depressed from lack of exercise.

Last night, WOOFER DAN started up his movies. Luckily, it was just a sound test, well 2 sounds tests, before movies. But that and not having my wrap-up done on time or enough time to even go outside for fresh air .... well not good.

Today I had to sleep in. Not up til 7:00am and ready til 8am = 10amCT.
G-- I HOPE HE MOVES!! Mega drop day and I've missed it and I am depressed. Oh, yes Happy St Paddy's Day.

In any case, within each adversity is wrapped an equal or greater opportunity and I think the Universe is pushing me to change. Simplify and reduce my work hours and get back into some healthy balance.

Last night I posted a trade for o/n session I attach them to an alert because IB erases them if I don't. So attach to a price alert the Sell at 1279.25 the stop at +5 (=1302.25) and the OAC profit limit order, 1253.50. Well IB doesn't like me attaching the OAC profit limit order to the alert and give me a #6405 error - whatever that is and erases it.

So my profit taker of 1253.50 OAC the SELL Stop was gone and I put in a trail 3 and go taken out well, well before the bottom.

First 2 orders for March 17

Tired and 7:16pst - past bedtime a quick snack and hopefully a sound sleep. Lots more action tomorrow no doubt.

I track the swings of 6pts or more. Usually there are 3 or 4 swing points and if all are caught about 20pts. A big day is about 40 possible pts. Last Wed was 41 pts (this can happen on Wednesday's because of its up and down nature). Today was a staggering 134 possible points with 11 pts (!) in RTH. Wow!
