Welcome to

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.

Can you hit your own Limit Orders?


I have a newbie question that I actually thought up a long time ago but never really asked/found the answer to. It's a bit irrelevant for most of us, but still important to understand imo.

Say I am a large player in a certain futures product. I start the day by buying at $100 on the Open and keep pressing the price towards my target at $110. Say I want to exit my position at $110, so I place an iceberg order of Sell Limits there to get filled without spooking anyone, however, I need the market to continue looking strong at the $110 level so would I be able to continue buying into my own orders to encourage others to do so until I had no more orders to fill and I was flat?

Of course I would probably waste money on comms but these would be negligable due to my size and the discounts I receive. Is this what we see happening on a regular basis in products like the ES? Is it legit?
