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.

How long should we make video? Back to black and white? ok

Ive posted video/screenshots, we still have more to learn then that?

I think I know what pulled orders looks like on Tape:

45 45 45 45 45 45 45 45 45 45 [46 46 46 47 47 47 48 48 48 ] 49 49 49 49 49 49 49 49 49 49 49 49

Rocky and Bloom make videos/screenshots too. So we get a more practice and become Pros sooner.

We have learned almost nothing )))
How long must be video? As price came to important price level and remains there. Such situations of important prices occures 5-10 time in 1 day.

Obviously, pulled orders do not hit the tape...that is what makes them pulled orders as opposed to executed orders.
There is no point in trying to separate out fragmentation algorithms from whatever...the whole point of fragmenting an order is so you can't separate it.

To me the best way to learn to read the tape is at important levels as mentioned. "Important levels" being tests of session high or session lows...Any other prices are make believe as far as importance outside your own systems.

The only thing I really find it good for though is when to exit a breakout on the high/low and maybe a little bit when to fade a range test but that might just be nonsense on my part.

The danger of the tape is you start thinking you are 21st century wyckoff and can trade anywhere in the range.

In the begining of Learning TR watch it only then price come to important price levels.
Switch all your BID ASK prints to one color. As the price near the important price level watch how tape behave itself and recording a video. Do it 5 days of the week and upload to this thread. I ask you to do so we could start to learn something and do not only talking)))
If this is not possible than at least screen shots and discribe your observations.

1) 8:23:18 tape is speed up and moving fast. There are most small orders.
2) 8:25:20 price is coming to 1.4335 and tape is speed up. BID looks weak and there is no BIG prints. So there is high probability of breakdown. No longs. Here is crowd in general and it fills BID limits.
3) 8:29:50 tape begins doing fast pushes.
4) 8:30:26 tape is speed up. Brakedown reaction. 1.4324 stand one BID big limit order. If it would be filled then market goes to 1.4310 with high probability. There is no longs
