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.

new CME hours for Equity Index Futures

Got this update from CME:

CME Globex Equity Index Trading Hours and Daily Price Limit Changes for Futures and Options
Effective Sunday, November 18 (trade date Monday, November 19), the electronic trading hours on CME Globex for Equity Index futures and options will be expanded to the following:

17:00 Central Time (CT) through 16:15 CT, with a 15 minute market pause (Pre-open) from 15:15 CT to 15:30 CT. This expansion does not impact the current halt in trading on CME Globex from 8:15 CT to 15:30 CT in the following full size Equity Index contracts (SP, ND, MD & DD).
With this change, the existing 5, 10, 20, and 30 percent daily price limits will be applied to the futures fixing price rather than the daily settlement price. The 5 percent price limits will be applied at 15:00 CT and will be in effect until 08:30 CT the following day.

This only seems to affect price limits and does not indicate any change to settlement procedures. If anyone else is reading this differently, let me know.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
