Welcome to futures io.

futures io is the largest futures trading community on the planet, with over 90,000 members. At futures io, our goal has always been and always will be to create a friendly, positive, forward-thinking community where members can openly share and discuss everything the world of trading has to offer. The community is one of the friendliest you will find on any subject, with members going out of their way to help others. Some of the primary differences between futures io and other trading sites revolve around the standards of our community. Those standards include a code of conduct for our members, as well as extremely high standards that govern which partners we do business with, and which products or services we recommend to our members.

At futures io, our focus is on quality education. No hype, gimmicks, or secret sauce. The truth is: trading is hard.

With futures io, you can find honest trading reviews on brokers, trading rooms, indicator packages, trading strategies, and much more. Our trading review process is highly moderated to ensure that only genuine users are allowed, so you don’t need to worry about fake reviews.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading sites:
  • We are here to help. Just let us know what you need.
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive in our community.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendors advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, we can help you find it.

That's correct. I want Support's input on this. I'm asking them to email you within next 10 min or so to make sure everything's in place.

Update: Curtis with Support just emailed explanation.



I had an answer from IQ Support.

I am posting it here as it might be useful for other traders in the future:

“The main reason why IQFeed shows lower volumes per trade is several years ago we upgraded to a unbundled feed straight from the exchange which allows our customers to see every single actual trade to come through rather than just the Best Bid and Ask trade. So with the feed being unbundled you will see smaller volumes but generally will see more trades coming through from IQFeed.”

Ok, message acknowledged. I really see more trades coming through than with IB T&S.

I am still not very convinced though that the Commodity Future with more liquidity in the world – average 200.00 to 300.000 traded contracts per day - very rarely have trades with volume above 30/40 contracts (tracked just four today and the biggest - by far - was "just" 93 contracts!!)… But never mind, this is just me.

Thanks Robert.

I've done tick analysis on 3 years of data on ES, and I believe the average trade size was a 3 lot. Many institutions use icebergs.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

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.

You can always compare your "on the fly" data analysis with the Mother Lode of Time & Sales data provided on the CME website each night.

http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/equity-index/us-index/e-mini-sandp500_quotes_timeSales_globex_futures.html

At the speed this data is processed I believe it is impossible to visually "see" what you appear to be looking for IF you haven't filtered your T&S screen to only post trades larger than (N).

You may find this interesting, if you haven't seen it before.

I did a search but could not find this. With IQFeed it has a symbol option for "Crude Oil Futures Front Month" continuous (which is one of the things I think I am looking for in IQFeed). But there is also the regular September contract.

If I place a trade in the "front month" version, I am assuming that is the same as placing an order for the September symbol? Or do I need to place orders in the September contract and only use the Continuous for historical data?

Or, is that a question for my broker?

I had a case of POC double vision this morning, and it adversely affected my trade decision. That prompted me to try a 14-day trial of IQFeed. I feel like I just went to visit Goldilocks.

You cannot place a trade on IQFeed's continuous contract, because IQFeed isn't your broker

Sierra Chart supports symbol mapping so that your chart can be the continuous contract, but trades go to a symbol of your choosing, such as the correct manually entered front month.

@Robert Carrillo

Is it possible for me to know which third party provider supplies the fundamental data in U.S. equities to IQF?

Thanks!

We don't use a third party provider for stock data, either quotes or fundamentals. Quotes are directly from the exchanges and indicators/breadth/stats are calculated by DTN IQFeed. Why?
