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.

Quick Summary
We Are All FX Traders Today...

From Peter Tchir of TF Market Advisors

We Are All FX Traders Today...

The correlation between SPX and EUR has been high, but it seems to have hit unprecedented levels today. All you need to know is where EUR is and you can pretty much nail where treasuries, SPX, and an assorted number of other assets are.

The connection and how program driven the market has become is highlighted by the 30 year auction. It was a weak auction, which translated to treasuries down, EUR up, and SPX up. I'm not sure a weak 30 year auction is a sign of risk-on, but then again, who knows.

HYG is trading t 87.60, down only 1 point from Tuesday. HY17 is trading at 91.125, up only an 1/8 today and still down 2.5 points from Tuesday. With RESCAP in the index, that explains some of the move, but once again we are getting a separation of the "professional" hedging tool, and the "individual" risk taking tool. Cash seems firm, and somewhere in between the two indices. Not sure it is quite the right time, but long HY17 and short HYG may make sense again.
