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.

-- Big Mike

Hey there everyone. I can't believe how many pages have amassed since I've been gone. Do any of you trade fx options particularly eurusd. If so any advice on how to trade.

For some reason, I am not able to see the option chain for CCz13 on OX. Anyone else encountring the same problem? I tried it on 2 different machines and connections.

I have the same problem. I can see Puts but most of the Calls are blank.

Yes, I have the same problem. I called OEX support and told them. They had no explanation. One workaround is to use the "old " Trade Ticket. I was able to view bid/ask and enter a trade that way. The All In One ticket doesn;t support it today (but it did last week!).

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

Futures Edge on FIO

What value do you place on the webinars on FIO?

Use the Trade Calculator, and manually type in the symbol: CCZ331000C
. You just can't click the Trade Now button to enter an order.

For what it is worth, I have never had this issue until today.

I'm trying to find the SPAN calculator on the CME website. Is this the correct link?

I think it is. Can someone explain the difference between the PC-Span product for $10 and the SPAN Risk Manager for $3000? That is a heck of a difference in cost! I'm guessing the PC-Span is enough for most of us.


PC Span: http://www.cmegroup.com/confluence/display/pubspan/Use+PC-SPAN

Risk Manager: http://www.cmegroup.com/confluence/display/pubspan/SPAN+Risk+Manager
