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.

Limit down numbers

As fear is ramped up, I've seen a few wonder about the price limits and how they are calculated...

"The percentages (10 percent, 20 percent and 30percent) are based on the average closing price
of the lead month futures contract in December, March, June and September. The average
closing price of the lead month futures contract determines the level for the next quarter.

For S&P 500, E-mini S&P 500, NASDAQ-100, E-mini NASDAQ-100, E-mini NASDAQ Composite and E-mini NASDAQ Biotechnology futures, the 10 percent limit is computed as 10 percent of that average, rounded down to a multiple of 10 index point"

The numbers for this quarter: (60/600 overnight ES/DOW, and 10% RTH 120/1200 ES/DOW)
