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.

What is interesting, total change in puts OI for the front month was soaring all the week long while for calls it was quite stable or negative. See screenshots for the last 2 days.

I'm surprised they are adding new positions at sub 40 prices this close to expiration. <10 DTE.

Yes, exactly what I noticed too. Does it say us anything?

And opposite observations for M.

Excuse the blatant self promotion but I think many of you will find some analysis I did and posted to another futures.io (formerly BMT) thread Why you should add to winners and never add to losers very interesting and potentially helpful to your trading. Got over a dozen likes already ... [/selfpromotion]

"The U.S. rig count has historically troughed (about) 25 weeks after exploration and production companies decided to
lay down rigs (we are currently 13 weeks in)," Morgan Stanley analysts said in a research note, attempting to forecast
the timing of a likely revival of the oil-services industry in the U.S.

"This has proven true in all major energy downturns over the past 20 years in which U.S. oil and gas prices fell by over 40%. We see this consistent time frame driven by the amount of time it takes to (i) finish committed work and (ii) renegotiate service pricing."

This is a good piece. And it is right, except 1999 downturn when it took much longer (while production in 1998-1999 was falling).

Yeap the one and only. That deal feel thru because of the Russia/Ukraine issues.

Morgan Stanley have an amazingly profitable commodities group and have had for decades.
They've been one of the biggest and best for a long time.
