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.

Here's a good link to an article on CNBC. Looks like net longs increased in /GC futures and /NG futures and fell in /CL and gasoline

This shows the problem with a weekly report. Whoever sold the heck out of GC on Friday probably took their profit on Monday pm or Tuesday so the report from Tuesday pm doesn't show who sold it. We needed a report from Friday pm.

Headline

Quoting 
Previously Owned U.S. Home Sales Unexpectedly Fell in March

Here is what it should have said

Quoting 
Previously Owned U.S. Single-Family Home Sales Still Strong. Up 9.1% YoY and Median Prices Up 12.1% YoY

The 0.2% MoM drop was within the margin of error and adjustment that could happen next month.

Also cold US weather in March probably reduced buyers going out to look at homes.

DJ MARKET TALK: Brazil Crop Could Be Bitter Pill for Coffee Bulls

10:45 EDT - There's not much heat left in the coffee market in the next 12
months, according to Goldman Sachs. The bank lowered its 3-, 6-, and 12-month
forecasts for ICE arabica coffee to $1.45/lb, from $1.55, $1.65 and $1.75,
citing an expected large crop out of Brazil this year. That crop will likely
offset the effects of Central America's outbreak of leaf-rust disease, says the
bank.

Too bad they didn't release this before KC dropped 4.50.

Quoting 
NEW YORK--U.S. stocks plunged Tuesday afternoon, and quickly recovered.

Stocks briefly erased a 125-point gain after a tweet from the Associated
Press Twitter account erroneously claimed that there were two explosions in the
White House and that President Barrack Obama had been injured. The Associated
Press said on its corporate website that its account had been hacked. The White
House confirmed that there was no incident.

ROI forumla explained


ron99-

Can you please clarify your monthly ROI formula for me? The formula you posed earlier was
Quoting 
option premium-fees / (IM*.65*2.4) / DTE *30

First of all did you mean
  1. option premium - fees / (IM*.65*2.4) / DTE *30
  2. (option premium - fees) / (IM*.65*2.4) / DTE *30
The first is the one that makes sense to me mathematically.

Secondly, is DTE * 30 suppose to have its own parenthesis? Or is the entire equation multiplied by 30.
  1. ((option premium - fees) / (IM*.65*2.4) / DTE) *30
  2. (option premium - fees) / (IM*.65*2.4) / (DTE *30)

Third, where did you get the constants you multiply by the initial margin (IM): 0.65 and 2.4? Do they have any meaning?

Lastly, the units of the final result: is it in percent (%)? If the equation returns "1.0". Is the result 100% or 1%?

Thanks in advance.
