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.

Nice trading!

I wish. Didn't have enough on. My models start scaling me out of my positions 100 days DTE so position was smaller than it might have been.

Interesting article on LNG and a new export facility in Louisiana

A little lengthy (?) to peruse but certainly worth a scan


Quoting 
And pretty much like that, he was a self-appointed energy executive. Armed with the technology, Souki looked into exploring for oil in the shallow waters of the Louisiana coast. Major companies had moved on to deeper waters, yet tiny pockets of oil and gas remained. Drilling for it would take tens of millions of dollars. Souki figured the best way to raise that kind of money was to sell shares to the public. Rather than start his own company, he bought a dead one. In 1996 he took over the shell of a defunct film-colorization company whose shares still traded. He changed the name to Cheniere—Cajun for “high ground looking over a swamp”—opened an office in Houston, hired a bunch of geologists and engineers, and became the founder and chief executive of a publicly traded energy company.

Quoting 
Front-month Brent crude futures rose by more than 10 percent on Thursday, 5 percent on Friday and 8 percent on Monday, before plunging by more than 8 percent on Tuesday.

To put that in context, the percentage daily price movements were 4.6 standard deviations away from the mean on Thursday, 2.4 standard deviations on Friday, 3.7 on Monday and 3.8 on Tuesday.

If price changes followed a normal distribution, a move of 3.5 standard deviations should occur only once every eight years and a move of greater than 4.5 standard deviations should happen once every six centuries.

Some charts of interest


Image 1:

Despite some claims in the news, Chinese demand for crude oil doesn't seem to be waning. Although its demand for refined products has decreased, this has been gradual as the country began to develop its own refining technology. It's demand for crude oil hasn't suffered yet with the latest report from 31st July showing it's highest peak (30.3755).

The next report is due on the 8th Sept for the month of August so it will be interesting to see if things change drastically there.

Image 2:

Iran coming back on the scene was another major concern for oil producing nations and was also mentioned as a reason for the decline in oil prices. Iran's output is currently 2,780 bpd - but even in its peak (March 2008) it was producing 4,020 bpd so the potential increase in supply is only 44% to it's peak. I suppose the short term issue could be mass storage volumes that are ready to ship which could increase production volumes.

Just thought I would add something to the interesting conversations members were having last week regarding Saudi Arabia, Iran etc.
