I just finished my first month of trading futures on a live account and thought I would post my results. It's been an interesting month adjusting to futures from forex. For background info, I've been demo trading futures for 3 months and have demo + ...

I finally got some time to trade today and it ended up being one of my best days to date, +50 points Trade 3 was the big one - as soon as the news popped I sold hard

Yesterday's trades on the left, today's trades on the right. I don't know what's going on today - is anyone else getting these gapped bars? I have 3 just today.

Today was a slightly red day (-2 ticks). Could have been worse, but I followed my system rules and that saved me. Bought on the break of TL 1 but that trade went south pretty fast. I sold right away due to the bearish momentum and scalped a couple ...

Been busy with work the past few days but I was able to find some time this morning. Trade 1 entered on break of TL #1, trade 2 entered on break of TL #2. I am probably going to remove the red/green heiken ashi indicator, I find myself not using it ...

Yeah, this chop has been terrible. 6 trades today, luckily I made out a net of +3 points, mostly thanks to trade 3. I was in for trade 5 for 1 contract, and accidentally hit sell again instead of closing out the trade...luckily the market dipped a ...

Nice work. Good end to the week for me too. That big bear bar was because of a Trump tweet about China I believe. I actually tried to trade it (trade 3), should have held on lol Trades 1 and 4 were according to the system. Trade 2 was a trendline ...

I've tried drawing longer timeframe lines before, but its made my trading worse (not to say it won't work for someone else). I think it adds another layer of analysis and I prefer to just focus on the last 10-20 bars in the here and now. One thing ...

Phew, its been a busy morning. Trades are on the chart - business as usual. I'm primarily using manual trailing stops and trendline breaks to exit. One thing I still struggle with is knowing whether a break constitutes a new trend and if I should ...

Also, this morning's trades - Trade 1 was a win, trade 2 is looking like a small loss if it closes above that trendline

Lesson learned from yesterday - make a Twitter account and have it tell me whenever Trump tweets... Done for the day, its been a pretty good one. Caught massive bearish momentum in trade 2. Once that trendline broke I decided to buy (bad idea to ...

Yeah, after a long time waffling between overseas FX brokers, I ditched FX altogether and got into micro index futures. They are nice. Love the centralized volume. This morning's trades so far. The up/down arrows are just heiken ashi.

I'm trying to understand how this EA works. Using set file A. Under what condition will this basket of trades close? Also, the EA opened 2 trades near the top (1.15535) instead of just one - is this a bug?

I was going to post the latest stats tomorrow after market close (Friday evening my time), but I will do it now in the interest of transparency, in case the account blows up before then. Comparing the stats from last week to this week, things were ...

Here's an update 1.5 weeks into the competition. After the giant $200 loss last week I've slowly and steadily been climbing my way back to positive equity
