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.

Not sure if anybody has any NG options on still but just in case...

EIA Natural Gas Storage Report Expectations 13-Feb-14 for week ending 6-Feb-14

The largest survey I see (37 respondents) shows
Average -229
Median -229
Range -219 to -237
Std Dev 6.6

This week last year -152
5yr Average -162

Actual report will be available at Weekly Natural Gas Storage Report - EIA at 1030 EPT

At time of writing 8:25am EPT, NG market is up 11c, so expecting yet another 'interesting' day.

I have calls sold in the 9-10 region. Just put the majority on yesterday and tuesday. 12 dte ROI isn't as good as a couple weeks ago but I think I'm safe, even with the withdrawl numbers.

I sold some Mar 9s in the last 6 days for .014 & .010. I would think that they can't be affected this close to expiration.

Right now calls above 7 aren't bid higher than settlement even though futures are up 11 cents.

I wonder if on Feb 21st, the last day for specs to get down to lower position limit will be as crazy as last month.

Interesting that April hasn't been nearly as crazy as March.

Correct

Natural Gas Thread
In the 10 trading days since Feb has expired Mar has had an ATR of 8.0%!
To illustrate the volatility of the Mar-Apr spread, Apr has an ATR of 3.8%, under half Mar over the same 10 days.
