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.

Price Limit Guide

About Revised CME Globex Hours for Equity Index Contracts:

There will be a 15-minute halt in electronic trading from 3:15 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. CT.
Trading on CME Globex will resume at 3:30 p.m. CT for the same trade date for 45 minutes, closing at 4:15 p.m. CT. This includes Fridays, meaning that the end of the trading week on CME Globex also will be changed to 4:15 p.m.
Trades that occur between 3:30 p.m.-4:15 p.m. will be subject to the daily settlement prices calculated at 3:15 p.m. CT (i.e., settlement times will not change).
Trading will be closed from 4:15 p.m.-5:00 p.m. CT.
Trading re-opens at 5:00 p.m. on CME Globex (Sundays-Thursdays) for the new trade date.
Changes are effective for both U.S. and international equity index futures and options
So this means, I think, that it doesn't trade from 15:15 to 15:30 and from 16:15 to 17:00.
In effect it is the same as before except there is an extra 45min lost.
The other change is that the end of the ETH hours for Monday is 16:15 Monday and that Tuesday's session starts at 17:00 Monday instead of 15:30 Monday.

pretty stupid and confusing.

It also changes limit move calcs - but my mind glazed over trying to figure it out!

Good trading to everyone.

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.
