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.

You mean there are algos-that can detect if any other algo is currently being executed or not? Please tell us more

This comes in a number of forms.

There are predatory algorithms that try to detect buying/selling patterns. If you want to build a large position in an illiquid stock prior to earnings, then you have algos that will do that and other algos that try to take advantage of them.

Still - the sort of algos we are talking about - the ones that split large orders are a different beast. They used to be pervasive in the market but now are not really required on some markets (Futures, specifically) because the exchange made changes in Oct 2009 that split up large orders anyway. So - as the clever programmers at the exchange do the job, it's not really necessary for algos to do it.

Anyway - spotting a VWAP engine accumulate a position over a number of days is a tough job. On the other hand, the splitting of orders when a buyer or seller wants in NOW. Is a different matter.

Are they were with the tape?

TAPE TAPE ONLY TAPEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

I have found a pattern in this stock, and I am making money with this pattern for last 2 weeks.

I am not sure what it is, but I think I have spotted some algorithm going on here in this stock. Here is how it happens..during the trading hours, you can see some trades with SAME size repeating very frequently, and on the same side(either bid or ask).

Like this

1190 303 (size=303 on bid)
.................
.................
.................
1190 303 (size repeat on bid)
.................
1191 303 (size repeat on bid)
.................
.................
1189.5 303 (size repeat on bid)

In a filtered T&S that shows only trades of size 100 and above, you will find this 303 coming at interval of every 5/6 other trades. This indicates that some one is selling lots of 303 stocks repeatedly. Another thing, as long as this continues, price remains within a trading range, just like distribution in longer time frame charts appear.

DionysusToast ..Please tell me the name of the algorithm that is being executed here.(trades being executed with same size and same side).

It is a trader who collect large position and selling it to the BID of client making a large position to him))) and BIG comission to broker. Big comission, current price. That is why market always go to the large orders.
Or trader may also go to short in the bid of client and cover his short by spreading on the other market. Good job man.
Also it is called "Repeating buyer" remember this pattern))
There also exist "Repeating seller"

Affected Instruments


DionysusToast View Post
I hate to be the bearer of bad news BUT... Since 2009, large prints are no longer relevant on the T&S of any CME market.

DionysusToast,

from my understanding and information only CBOT Equity futures, and CME Equity futures are affected and not 'any CME market'

Since the CME released these changes quite technical and in my opinion much less than transparent for what they've really done, it would be much appreciated if you or someone else could shed some light upon this if I am mistaken.

Particularly because the Equitiy futures aren't the only instruments to trade at the CME respectively the CBOT.

Regards,
Serninja

No - it's all CME markets. At the risk of getting shot down in flames for linking to a vendor video - this guy did actually contact the CME to ask what changed.

First the video : Is It Bots Or The Exchange Engine - PriceActionRoom's library

Then some charts:

First - this is a chart of the NQ at the cutover point. Volume is set to number of ticks.
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


We can see how the number of ticks rose significantly.

Now - here's the same chart with volume set to number of contracts.

You can do this yourself if your platform goes back that far AND gives you a tick volume bar.

Cheers

Pete

Previous LOW of the day. Tests shows big buyer at the limit side. I have wait until agression of the sellers fade away and enter long with limit bid order 1330 75.
I place my mind stop behind BIG limit orders (2 ticks) in the case of fail and wait for my profit target. Highest score. Very good trade scalp
