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.

Its not much important weather BIG trade is a NEW trade or a Take Profit/Cover trade. I\

Noooooo)))) It is very important)))
I give only one reason why. If this is getting in then the market will do much bigger move then it will do, if this is get out)))
You short and you realy BIG GUY))) Market at the low of the day try to break it
You are wait for your exit at the BID.
Some other BIG trader stop hit and he sell to you all you want. He get out and you too. Thats all. Market stops too.
But if you go long on the low of the day and other trader go short than probability of BIGGER move is higher, because you or other trader will need to cover losses))) and move market

It is better find someone who work in this and he tells you.
I have many friends in Russia and few of them working in big brokers company. One of them tell me how traders working and doing orders of the cilents from all of the world.

Quoting 
And if you want to know what doing Shark traders and you want to know it from a book )))) Hey man this is not a book you could find. All you can is too WATCH THINK LEARN)))

I agree. Experience is the best teacher.

Software needed to track VWAP/TWAP

Friends, please help me to do the following:

1. Please try to find books /websites/other resources that contains algorithms and/or codes for the algorithms that can track algos like twap / vwap /pov etc. from the Ninjatrader time and sales.

2. Please help me to find out how to integrate the above algos in the ninjatrader application (T&S).

Lets take this seriously, it will be rewarding.

If you have any doubt/confusion regarding what I am doing, look into post # 201 by DionysusToast

One of the things we need to be careful about here - looking for setups.

Or rather - looking for setups is not the only way to use the Tape.

Some of the stuff on here about big bids is very good BUT - let's not go down the path of thinking that we now need to identify a 'setup' and then look for that 'setup' and now we are reading tape.

Tape is also about changes in in trading activity over time, the pace of the tape, the actions of large vs small traders and the changes in their activity over time. It's not just about watching the DOM, waiting for a large order, seeing the market act in a specific way and then having an 'action' when you see that.

If you are going to become a Tape Reader, you have to pretty much stop thinking mechanically in my opinion.

Sounds like a description of cumulative delta.

You have seen nothing. If monpere decides to look at tape reading you better fasten your seat belt or revise your position.

Nope - it's not aimed at anyone in particular. Just the direction of the thread generally, which appears to be steering towards 'setups' as opposed to reading the markets aka reading tape.

LOL! Something to look forward to.

Cumulative delta is similar but it's static. Still - it could certainly be considered a 'higher timeframe tape'. With lesser detail that higher timeframe implies. I use CD myself.

The Tape has always been a list of trades flowing past, so it's the analysis of that order flow that is tape reading. If you don't see trades flowing past, you aren't tape reading.
