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.

-- Big Mike

I use my local hours. It doesn't matter to me what time it is anywhere else.
I know when the volume comes and goes. I know the news events posted on various
sites' calenders 24/7. I like my local time

Using local hours for session templates is contrary to the logic of NinjaTrader and will produce royal failures.

I would advise to never ever try to do that.

Only exception: You are US-American, only trade US-American stocks and futures on US-American exchanges and did not notice that there is an outside world.

The session template 24/7 is even false for US-only citizens, as it will produce false highs, lows and pivots for any instrument. Never use 24/7.

Look at the volume on 9/6 @09:20am pst on the TF - 66k... pathetic! Miss the days of the ER ~ I think "Russell" made a mistake changing exchanges
YM = 105k
ES = 1,400k
NQ = 192k

TF = 66k (pathetic)

...................................................................................
Got this from another forum....TF kind of drying up.

I know some guys have moved back/over to ES and some are trying the EMD but that one isn't all that great.

For the record I'm sticking with the TF just thought I would point this out.

@kbit

Today

EMD = 23K

TF = 97K

NQ = 222K

YM = 95K

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.

@Fat Tails,

certainly agree with that, expect the "only exception".

here's my version: You live in US, only trade US-American stocks and futures on US-American exchanges and did or did not notice that there is an outside world.

@Massive I: Be assured it was a coincidence, I am not sitting here waiting for you (or somebody else) to post anything in order to prove the opposite... Your are just one of the casualties along my cruising trail.

I'm thinking the big guys are selling this and we will see 825ish....I could be wrong as I often am but I'm looking for a short anyway.

Edit: watching 854 area....to late today but see what it looks like in the morning.

That said, I am keeping in mind we could have a trend day up tomorrow so.....

Edit2: I like 856 better after closer inspection

Paradoxical Quote of The Day

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured...
but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."

Now add this, "Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive
free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."

GOOD GRIEF!!!!!!!
