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.

Insurance companies mostly who must hedge their exposure. Also, any business who could have their operations severely disrupted by the weather. Construction, fishing, clamming, lobstering, resorts, farming...there are many businesses that could be wiped out due to severe weather.

Futures Edge on FIO
The contracts are very thin and I suspect they trade primarily through block orders. IDK. CME does offer futures and options on several weather related products.

I have tried to follow the weather products, and they are crud. Kind of like Class III milk. Try and pull up a chart on any weather product. Try to find volume or price action...Yikes! We'd be better off trading products more liquid than that.

P.S...I am speaking of futures only, I do not know options. Maybe options are more liquid than straight futures.

Thank you all for your replies


I may look into Options on them


If the Futures have no Liquidity , then I'll pass on those

Options though .... Maybe ?
