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.

Thanks Matt, I posted above you that I did turn it off, but it's still not as efficient as a real flatten button.

ok I have guys who use CQG trader for scalping CME and EUREX and it seems to work for them.
But, maybe you just use the data from CQG and apply in on a different platform like Market Delta Cloud which may have what you need. It is free.

It's fine for scalping, it's just that there is no flatten or reverse buttons. I rarely use reverse, maybe only 1-2 times in 4 years or so, but with flatten you can close your current position and cancel all open orders on an OCO/bracket order trade in 1 click. If you set a limit to exit on the dom, that's fine but since the PT order or the stop didn't trigger the exit, they will stay open and you have to manually cancel the orders. That means that there is a chance that the market blips up or down and fills one of those still open orders before you can cancel it, which is not terribly convenient. You can also slide one of your open oco orders to exit the position which I think many people do, but again, less convenient than a single button click. I can often get one extra tick profit by waiting for the right moment to click flatten, for example.

I really like the platform, just this one or two things I would change, maybe they will, I put in a suggestion to add those as buttons.

Do you trade different market simultaneously?

Because if it is not the case you have a button that flatten all your position at market. You can also selectively cancel buy or sell order on cancel all none filled order in all market.
Look at the bottom of the DOM trader.

And in the case you are trading different market at the same time if you want to close a position just click buy or sell at market are you will be out.

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
yes I usually have a couple of open positions at one time. The global Liquidate button is not great for me. You close your ES posiition and want to leave your ZN or CL position open, you cant with that

In that case it is easy just buy or sell and click on X All after to cancel all OCO order (if you have some) on that market. It is 2 clicks it takes less than 1s. I am really aggressive scalper and it has never bother me. (X Global cancel all OCO on all markets)

Also if you have a programmable mouse you can put that on 1 button of the mouse as a macro. (I have 14 buttons on my mouse...) Gamer stuff is great for trading

Yes, it might, thanks. I'll have to look at some macros maybe for a single key exit, maybe using Autohotkey
