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.

In a few of your webinars you have discussed the overnight high and lows. I believe that you gave a statistic that 95% of the time if say the high is hit it will not hit the low. Or the other way around. But I have noticed in the NQ we have hit both a few times in the day session over the last few weeks. What does it say about the market if it takes out both in the day session?

My initial thought is range bound activity. That if it hits both then it is like a ping pong ball that is bouncing from one extreme to the next. Am I correct or what is your take?

Another awesome AMA. Thanks FT and Mike!

Thanks for the feedback. Always appreciated. It is so key for us to know that it is useful and to change when it is not.

Sorry I have not had a chance to attend a live AMA,

How many trades do you think should be booked before the tick expectancy starts to mean something realistic.

The absolutely minimum, in my opinion, is 50 trades. You can start tweaking your trade management and/or plan after 50 trades or so. Your ability to tweak efficiently will depend on how consistently you took and managed the trades.

If you want this to be really useful, post your Trade Analyzer results or trade results here and we can go over them for everyone's benefit.

Switch: How to change things when change is hard.

Amazon.com: Switch: How to change things when change is hard eBook: Chip Heath, Dan Heath: Kindle Store

An amazing book on how to change behavior.


Similar to The Power of Habit but... better

Really cool that you posted it here. This is the book I recommended to futures.io (formerly BMT) for the June event.

Please use this link if you plan to get it from Amazon so that my charity can get the credit (doesn't cost extra):

My initial thought is range bound activity. That if it hits both then it is like a ping pong ball that is bouncing from one extreme to the next. Am I correct or what is your take?

The stat is as follows: 96% of 1400 days sampled in ES, the day session touched or broke the overnight high OR low. 27% of the time, it touched or broke both.

If NQ is consistently taking out both sides, I would think that the NQ either doesn't track the Asian/European indices as well as the ES does so it doesn't get much range overnight and is therefore easily broken or that the components of the NQ are really not active at all during Globex on other markets.

As always, past performance is not indicative of future results on those stats.
