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.

It's a somewhat counter-intuitive to think the daily bar can close before the day is completed. Wait until i try to explain that to my wife

The bar does not close, it is just the settlement, which is taken at the close of the underlying. And your wife might understand as well that the settlement can take place prior to the end of the session.

Link to ICE

Some observations regarding RUSSELL. If you use NT6.5 then set your chart properties for session begins/ends to 18:00/18:00 for Eastern time.

Link to get OHLC, settlement and volume:

You may change the day/month number after the parameter tradeDay=27 and tradeMonth=8 before clicking this link or better use Excel to automate this action.

For a quick idea about the settlement price you may check on a 15min chart the opening print of the bar at 16:30 (Eastern time). Most of the time it matches the settlement price.
