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.

4891 and 4951 have been doing their fair share for holding this up on volume

-Bill

EDIT

However I don't much care what it does one day to the next. Up, down, left, right - right, left, down, up.

Typically the best trades are in the early session

Futures Edge on FIO
I'm going to throw an idea out there for folks who use numbers bars

I tried to pick a difficult area for a trade - right in the middle of a range

1046amET - 1015 trades, 405 (more) on the ask, 1221 volume, 33% bid

You would think it would go higher - NOT

I don't much care it ONLY went from 5015 or so to 4990

-Bill

EDIT

Actually it is still motoring right along

I wonder what @mfbreakout is doing today - my guess - sitting on his hands - and rightfully so

Yeah it's pretty quiet in here the past two days. I just wanna remind everyone that if you don't see any good opportunities, just sit out and wait for something clear to emerge.

SMCJB - You trading the heating oil spreads? I am having a near record day riding Mar/Apr down after it's 30 cent blow up.

Number of trades are increasing at 4975 area (important amongst itself)

623 trades, -175 ask, 62% bid
703 trades, -175 ask, 60% bid

What happened next?

EDIT

What better opportunity do we need than what I just laid out?

30 ticks and 40 ticks. I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box but one contract example, 700 US clams

That's perfectly fine! Just a friendly bulletin that I tell myself every day, and when things are quiet in the market I remind myself.
