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.

Level 2

Is it possible to make trade decisions without using Level 2 Quotes? Only T&S is enough?

Theoretically, yes - you'd have to be a bit of a savant to do it with a naked time & sales though...

Hi DionysusToast,

Nice to hear that. As our country does not publish Level 2, this is what that I have to learn. Any way, I am totally clueless on how to use the T&S. How should I start reading T&S? Can we discuss these things in a detailed way so that we can formulate a workable way of using the T&S?

Do I have to have a knowledge of the common trading algorithms used by the big players to buy and sell?

Futures Edge on FIO
Hey, Bloom

What does it mean when there is a HUGE best offer and the market eats it and then drops like 10 ticks? Like your were talking about, if the Huge Offer gets eaten and goes up it means that the Pros ate it. If It gets eaten and drops it means the public ate it and Pros were on the limit?

How can you be so sure that it was eaten and not pulled? Did you see the large print in the TnS that confirms that it is actually eaten ?

Good question. makes me think. On T&S there was like a 20 lot print(big trade). The offer was like 200ish.

So if it was eaten, then I would of seen a fast tape. And I guess if it was pulled, then the tape would be slow....

Now the problem is, I cant remember if it was fast or slow...

Why would a pro put a huge fake best offer it the first place? He would risk being filled in the wrong way.

Maybe it was Real big offer, just no liquidity to buy it.

There are some DOMs - like Tradestation (and TT I think) that show qty traded at each level.

Using a tool like this would help you see what's pulled & what isn't.

LIQUIDITY - 1987 stock market crash

Heres a quote from a good pdf: " One story is that on Oct 19, 1987, market makers stopped
providing liquidity after they ran out of capital.
Price impact rose as liquidity dried up.
Grossman and Miller (p. 632) “On the futures exchange,
order flows that might have moved the market by at most a tick
or two the week before were moving the market by 10 or 20
times that amount
.”

"In a stock market crash, all stocks become more illiquid
and fall, but generally Treasury bonds rise."
