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.

Targets

FT71,

I am a All in, scale out trader. I use 2 units, I look to take profit on the first unit rather quickly and manage the 2nd unit.

I usually have target areas for where I want to take profits on unit 2, but I also look at what the PA is telling me. However, managing the 2nd unit is currently the area where I need to improve. What are some of the ways you manage your scale out positions?

Thanks

Hector

Coaching


jefe View Post
Hector,
Since FT71 is doing morning trading plan updates and tweeting what's happening during the day, he is already being a coach for anybody that can recognize the value.
Jump on board Hector and learn from a pretty darn good trader!

Hi Jefe,

I agree with you. I do believe he has already been a good coach of mine, the same as Al Brooks and others, that I have learned from.

However, my question is more oriented towards his opinion regarding a more one-one personal type of coach.

Thanks

Hector

Mike, as I will be unable to attend todays AMA live, please will you ask FT71 the following if possible:

- After the market has been in balance for a few days, the day which finally breaks out of balance is often a strong trend day. On days like this you can really get hurt if you're still trading under the assumption that the market is in balance.

While the market is still within balance, what clues do you look for that it may be looking for a move out of balance on a particular day so that you dont end up fading all day.

Many thanks.

I guess questions from here aren't read out on the AMA for those of us on the other side of the planet unable to attend live. Hopefully FT71 will have a look at the above when he has time.

You donít trade the markets; you only trade your beliefs about the markets.
- Van K Tharp

Sorry. FT71 usually replies every week or so, he is just behind I think.

Usually there are 10+ questions we don't have time for during ama

Hi FT71,

Your Stage 5 page says you dont charge data, platform, charting, maintenance or monthly fees, when the CME increase their fees would you start charging fees to your customer?

Thanks

Legend!


First of all I would like to thank you for all of your videos! Secondly I have a wee question to you, what was your reason for 2500v chart for ES, was it a study or something else? If you have been asked this question before and you have answered it already (I am sorry) just point me where I can find an answer and I will be there!

Cheers
