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.

oil volatility is the highest its been since 2008-9

Have to remember volatility is measured on a percentage basis. There have been times when crude has moved more on a $ perspective but that was a lower % perspective. As such margins are lower than they have been previously but as a % basis they are higher, which is the same as saying you get (significantly) less leverage trading crude today than you did a year ago

Oil bears closing of $600 million triple-short fund bet seen adding to tumult | Reuters


Quoting 
Some 1.8 million shares worth more than $602 million were redeemed on Tuesday, the largest outflow from the ETN in the past year, according to data from FactSet Research


Quoting 
To unwind alone may have amounted to upwards of 40,000 futures contracts on Tuesday, according to estimates by analysts.

40k contract trade size... i'd love to press that button


and before someone says something.. yes i know it wasn't a single trade... but you get the idea.

While the person writing the article has a different understanding to me as to how redemption's work, and how a market maker would arb the ETN vs Futures, it's still a very interesting article.

Where do you get this kind of information on a given ETN? Looking at price and volume?

maybe it was inferred from ...


Quoting 
The net asset value of the fund - one of a handful of exchange funds that allows investors to trade oil without the complexity of a futures exchange - fell from close to $1 billion to $417 million on Tuesday and to $322 million on Wednesday, according VelocityShares' website.

I understand this is an oil thread, however I thought I would put forth some truth in advertising on the employment numbers

Cheers

Sorry but his analysis is ignoring what happens seasonally. Every Jan there is a huge drop in employed people on the NSA number. It's 2.8 to 3.0 million every Jan the last 4 years.

I'm not clear on your assertion

Karl Denninger wrote


Quoting 
Now to be fair, last year, same month, it was also down four ticks. It's called "seasonal firing" in January, and it happens every year. This year the household numbers say that while the population went up about 461,000 people the number of people actually employed went down by 666,000.

Yes, you read that right -- negative 666,000.

Oh, and the unadjusted unemployment rate was up from 4.8% last month to 5.3% -- a huge jump.

Who got screwed the worst? Women and teens; teens saw their unemployment rate fly higher by 2.3% (!) from 14.2 -> 16.5%.

But, this is expected in January as seasonal employees are fired.

Perhaps I'm missing something

What? There were 2.99 million jobs reported lost in the establishment survey with over 2 million of those in services. In other words the "gain" was due to "seasonal adjustment" and it was utterly monstrous; if reported on the establishment survey without same it would have been a ruinously bad print.
