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.

Question about revising orders:

When I click on an existing order in the Working orders box and choose to Revise, a new window opens up with 4 choices. Cancel is obvious and it works, but:

1. What is the difference between Pull and Remove, they both do the same and cancel the order?
2. When I click on Revise nothing happens, although I expect a window to open up where I could manually change the number. Is this a glitch?

Thanks...

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

I'd like to see:

1. The ability to enter negative prices in the order ticket (essential for spreads - and an issue you will get more of if introducing an autospreader). It's a bit annoying having to scroll through the prices - which is the only way to adjust a price from an existing quote.

2. When I open an order ticket off the quote board (how I tend to trade spreads), it would be good if I could save the ticket type as advanced. Every time I open a ticket, I have to change it to advanced.

3. It would be good if I could see depth of market from the Quote Board as in other platforms, rather than having to open up a Contract window.

Overall, a nice and stable platform though. Nice work!

1. If a spread has negative values than you should be able to enter as you would a positive number. I usually see negative numbers on the mini dow spread and was able to enter those values. Please look at this again and let me know if it is still an issue.

2. Yes you can definitely save this feature. After selecting Advanced from the main properties are you then saving the layout?

3. I will pass along this suggestion

Thanks Brian

1. Pull means pull the order from the market. Cancel means cancel this order ticket so it disappears. Remove means if multiple orders are in the order ticket you can highlight one and click remove so it is no longer being displayed in the ticket but it is not pulled from the market.
2. You must first make a change to the order then click revise to send the change to the market.

Hi

I'm using CTS with Sierra charts and i'm very satisfied , all works fine.
I'd like to have the price of futures formatted as it's formatted by the exchange , i.e.: ES or CL on CTS are shown and sent without period 151675 and 9102 i have to convert them in order to display with SC.
with CL ,during fast market , very few times i noticed a little lag in the reception of the data, compared with TT or Iqfeed , do you plan to increase the bandwith and velocity of the data feed ?
Regards
Max

We display without decimals because that is the format sent out by the Exchange. Try this for me. Go to the main properties and click the second tab called Contract. On the left hand side the second option is Price Buffering. Change yours to Fast and let me know if that helps. We give options because some computers can not handle this amount of bandwidth.

Thanks Brian

Hi Brian, one question only.

In my experience, if using the same futures with different entries, it is always first in first out. Is that correct and can it be changed somehow?

Let' me explain: I go long 1 ES contract at 1520. The market goes lower and at 1518 I go long with another contract.
Now when the market goes back to 1520, I want to exit the second contract, but even if I set the OCO limit order on that contract, still the first contract will be executed and this will be a breakeven trade instead of a 2 points profit one.

Is this always like this (first in, first out) or is there a trick I can exit whichever contract I want??

It is always FIFO.

Thanks Brian

Hi Brian,

First of all I am very excited about the auto spreader; I am a Velocity customer and about 6-8 or so months ago you were available as a Velocity front end and then you were no longer available on the list of front ends available. I have contacted both Velocity and you guys and no one can give me an answer on when CTS will be available with Velocity.

You guys have a great platform and thanks for doing this AMA.

Take Care,

Chris

Chris, Velocity resigned a few months ago so from my end they are good to go. Our auto spreader should be available in the next couple of months.
