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.

I thought this was interesting, but am not a big options trader so maybe it isn't a big deal?

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.

Stops you from having to do it manually.

Sort of what you do to 'work an order' by hand to get a better price especially on things with larger bid/ask spreads.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

I never used the Walk Limit Order feature on OX. I normally prefer to change manually and look for the mid price between the bid/ask. Does someone here use WLO often and can share his experience using it? when to use? when to avoid it? how effective is it? etc.
I talked with few traders with OX account and realized that I'm not the only one that never bothered using it, but OX makes such a fanfare of this feature that I wonder if I am missing something.

I would love to hear from someone that has used WLO often.
