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.

-- Big Mike

Keep doing what your doing. Journal is for you, don't worry about lack of comments - people don't get too excited about a chart without fancy indicators. Just the way I like 'em...



Enjoy your weekend,

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

ZBM12 is stuck in a rut...

ZBM12 is bouncing off the 50% retracement level (Feb high of 143.031 and Mar 19th low of 135.156) for the last couple of days...

That March 19th low was just under 4.00% (3.982%) equivalent nominal yield. Although I don't technically use these "landmark" yield rates (and their corresponding ZB price points) as entry/exit triggers, I do keep up with them (i.e. -- 3.50%, 3.75%, 4.00%)

Coincidence or not, but ZB does like to reverse direction at these major yield percentages (price equivalents of course...)

Keep up the good work and execute your plan -- there seem to be few ZB/ZN traders here at futures.io (formerly BMT) forum

question

Dano -
Do you have a site where you can get or confirm DV01 for different contracts or do you calculate them yourself? I'm relatively new to zn/zb and look forward to any feedback, insights, etc. you can share given your experience.
Thanks,
Rico

Rico:

I just hand-compute them with an Excel spreadsheet, but the old CBOT site had a download with them already calculated.

It's not perfect, but it gets the job done...

question


Dano-
Thanks for the feedback. Is there a way to do a back-of-the-envelope and calculate the approximate DV01 for a futures contract ZN/ZB without going thru the DV01 and conversion factor calc on cheapest to deliver, etc.?
For example, what's a good "guestimate" for the ZN june contract price if 10-year yields hit all time lows of 1.7% or even 1.5%?
Thanks,
Rico
