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.

Most of the huge movement in KC futures has been specs short covering and not buying longs. They cut their number of shorts from 44k to 14k (as of 2/25) in 4 weeks.

I have notice that too about NG options, what exactly is the reasoning behind that? I do understand margin rising because of volatility but shouldn't that apply to all months? Does that mean that April is more volatile than May and May is more volatile than June?

So with NG, it's the reverse? With less days until expiration, the margin becomes higher?

Here are margins for NG $6.00 calls. Apr IM is 1.35 times June IM even though futures are about the same price.

Those ROI numbers are not correct because they are using the IM for the whole period instead of the increased IM required as it gets closer to expiration. The Apr one is correct. But I wouldn't be selling Apr 6.00 NG with the below normal temps predicted.

I have tried the demo for Seasonalgo HTTP://www.seasonalgo.com/advantages It is far better than Moore's Research Center for seasonal charts and data. I am going to switch when my MRCI subscription expires.

They just sent me this email (below) with a free offer to try a full access demo for a month. Normally they just give you corn for the demo.

We are now offering to all demo users one month free full access.
Just click on this link

Link is valid till the end of March.

To subscribe costs $33 per month or $396 per year. Just a little more than MRCI's $379 yearly fee.

No, those charts are mine. The MRCI charts are copyrighted and under a pay system so I don't post them.

@Ron,

I've been using SeasonalAlgo.com since October and agree that they provide a lot more analysis capabality than MRCI. I've been primarily using them for outright futures spreads (rather than options).

Eudamonia,
I have been trying to work seasonality analysis into my trading for the past 6 months. I started by just coming to terms with what this meant. So I did some coding and started charting in excel seasonal charts for different future option series. I would appreciate hearing from you to learn how you use this website. I also only trade future options and would appreciate knowing what part future spread trading plays in your overall trading. This may help me continue to look at diversifying my activities. Thanks in Advance.

I would recommend reviewing the spread trades recommended at MRCI and SeasonalAlgo and do your own testing to see how they would suit you. That is what I did. If you want to discuss this further please start a new thread and send me an @. Don't want to clutter Ron's thread here.
