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.

looking to get up to 1214.1 ....that said would be a buyer at 1204.2 (2 pt stop )
Another buy at 1200.6 with small stop

Edit: forgot to mention would try small short at 1215. If gets taken out would look to long on a retrace

Got an e-mail from ICE saying TF is going down to $5.00 a tick.

"Effective Monday, December 5, the price multiplier for all Russell futures contracts traded on ICE Futures U.S. is being reduced by 50%, from $100 X Index to $50 X Index*. This means that the nominal value of each futures contract is also reduced by 50%.

Among the effects of the multiplier change:


All ICE Russell futures and options positions that are open at the close of trading on December 2 will double (the Exchange does this automatically)


The tick size for the futures contracts DOES NOT change (.10), but the value of the tick DOES change, decreasing from $10 to $5
To accommodate this change, the Exchange and Clearing fees for Russell contracts will also be reduced by 50% as of December 5.

For more information about the price multiplier change in the ICE Russell contracts, please see the October 21 Exchange Notice and the Exchange FAQ on the Russell Index Price Multiplier Change."

I guess they are too fricking stupid to realize the reason few people trade this is because of the absurd data fee. Kind of lame to think that more people will be interested to trade it because it's a smaller dollar amount. Looking forward to returning to the CME and hopeful return to $10 a tick.

What? This is terrible. TF is my money maker. First the insane data fee, and now double the commission fee to make the same profit amount? Just awful. Yes, I hope it returns to CME and goes back to $10. If there's a way to help make that happen, I'm all in.
