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.

Wheat thoughts....

March contract: Looking bearish. Breaking the support at around the 760 level could put the next target at the 740 area. Will consider selling calls again if this follows through.

Hey britkid99, I asked ron99 a question post 582 maybe you can answer it's about his margin returns and exit strategy post 582 and also sucden emailed me back and they have a platform called star what seems to be an online trading system. Peace.

Selim,

The quoted returns are on whole account as you show it.

Also I know about the Star platform and there is a hefty monthly fee that goes with it.
I am waiting for options to be incorpotated into their Smart platform which is currently in beta testing.

Brit

Market data fee

Yeah, I am delighted too and didn't think OX would go that low. But I did start the conversation by telling them that I only pay a flat rate of $2.32 at IB and that is also inclusive of all fees and paying $12.99 plus fees is unjustified no matter how great the services were at OX. They put me on hold for a few minutes and then came back with $3.99 no strings attached. I am glad I asked.


Hi all, for those of you that use OX,

do you have to pay for market data subscription fee also in OX? I've been using IB and I like it. However, I would like to explore more trades like KF and OJ and it requires me to subscribe the $70 monthly market data subscription fee.

No market data subscription fee for their real-time charts or any other data. However their real time streaming charts are not the greatest, nor is their end of day charting.

If you are talking about using real-time OX data in another charting platform then I have no idea or if they even offer that. I would contact them to ask...

Futures Edge on FIO
I was thinking to open an OX account to trade the underlying that IB requires market data subscription like KF, OJ. I am able to trade GC, CL, ES on IB currently.

Britkid

Hey britkid, you and Ron should start a hedge fund together and call it 99 squared, his returns are amazing, I know he is very experienced but his returns are better than any hedge fund. May I ask I believe you returned 23% last year, would you say you took a risky approach to trading or conservative. Was there anytime during the
Ast year where you almost blew up. I will be starting next month and just want to get an insight thanks .
