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.

I'd like to see another dip to 50 (to clean up things) then would be looking long up to 67.5

currently long from 53.2 and looking for 67.5 but also see that potential of 50 being revisited first.....

Waiting for a reversal to get back to both red lines....have to be aware of where a reversal might happen though in terms of happening before it hits 1180. If it happens above that I might reconsider trying to hold a short all the way down(tighter stops). That's what I'm thinking tonight ...may change tomorrow

I think this red line (1190) is the spot to watch. We could see 1220+
I'll be looking for longs especially after a retest of this level...

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
I was checking TF the other day, then I realized I don't have TF feed from IB.
I guess monthly data charge from ICE is $90? LOL, Do they really encourage traders to get rid of TF trading?

Yep, it keeps a lot of people away...it goes back to the CME in 2017 so it will likely be a lot more affordable, probably part of the e-mini package kind of thing.

Still have a long in play but am expecting a retest and possible failure of 1190 on the daily chart...going to be watching for a reversal after we take out 1208.

Didn't take out 2108 but got the 1190 test, am now looking long up to 98.5
beyond that, not sure yet.

Newbie question: ORB Strat Sample in EasyLanguage?


Hi All... 'just learned of (and joined) futures.io. Looks like a great place for a TF trader to hang out!

'Hope this is an OK place to post...

I showed my homegrown, *overly-complex EasyLanguage Strategy* to a colleague last night. It's 25+ pages of code, //Comments, and Print("Trace") statements. It trades the TF during the first few minutes of the day session...

After seeing it for the first time he said " hey man, you can write a profitable ORB strat in less than a page of code!".

I'm all about simplicity... and eager to "learn by example" if such code exists. TradeStation forum has been slightly helpful... and deserves my further investiagtion.

So, 'am seeking *sample ORB Strats* that are in the public domain, written in EasyLanguage... to simply see how other coders elegantly trade the "Opening Range"... of the Russell or other names.

QUESTION:
Are sample EasyLanguage strategies (written in various styles, like: ORB, mean-reversion, trend-following, gap-fill, ...) available to Elite Members of Futures.io? If so, becoming Elite makes total sense.

Any guidance and counseling on "best places to find well-written EL Strats" is appreciated... Thanks in advance.

John in Denver
