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.

Sorry for the late response. I broke my arm and am trying to recover from that so haven't been trading much recently. I like to watch the VIX, the 2year US T bond yield and the 2 year DE bond yield. Sometimes Ill look at Gold as well for correlated markets. Id say I get the most out of watching the VIX and the 2 year UST yield. When I see the Euro climb when the 2 year UST goes up I know I'm looking for a reason to Short it. I see a lot of opportunities when there is divergence between these markets and the Euro. The man who trained me gave me a lot of confidence in trading the market this way. Also predicting where value is going to be in the next 12 to 24 hours has helped as well. Your looking to build a black box based on correlated markets?

Thanks for sharing, interesting info...I could be reading tea leaves but it does seem that, since the Brexit vote some of the correlation strengths have weakened, but when a sharp move does come around in USTs the currency and energy futures still react with some conviction.

Re: black box, no, any logic dealing with intermarket correlations would be supplemental, not the prime driver of a decision.
