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.

-- Big Mike

It usefull but at the moment i used it with usual and understand that this way is much more comfortable.
So i can not say wich of them is better in general. But reconstructed seems cool
And if you understand i cant left my edge which i see from usual tape)))
And i do not know. At least i realy want to have both of them at my side))

The reconstructed Tape touches on OFA concept, which is of great interest to me. I'm going to study it with the 7-day trial.

I dont see any Big ASK prints. Which prints did you see?

I find my favorite and highest success trades are from the Highs and Lows of days. The problem is watching only one market you only get about 2 chances a day.. So I might have to look at more markets....

Are you referring, on the middle T&S to the 1097 traded total at 1347:75 (price) 18:34:24 (time) ?

If so, we are then trying to determine if, within that 1097 total, there are more limit sells than market order buys ?

Which I presume you thought there were which is why you sold ?

And although bid prints on that middle T&S went up to 1348.00, they were on much less size, which is why you held short as price went against you up to 1348.50?

Thx

Every moment I wake up I realize I know nothing, and then I smile...
