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.

Volume in Bonds

I use a 10K Volume chart for the ES.
I'm new to trading Bonds and wonder what would be a good equivalent ?
Should I use different settings for ZN, ZF, and ZB ?
I notice that there's quite a large difference in the daily volume of each of them, with ZN having by far the highest.

Hi Wewe,
I use a 1250 volume bar for the ZB and I don't trade the others.
