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.

Guys - just FYI - if you are just starting to look at the tape in the last few days - do not be put off.

What we are seeing now is not normal!

Is anyone else having problem with tape reading Yesterday and Today? Whats wrong? I noticed that on the DOM the levels are smaller than normal. Is it the problem. When the market is thin its volatile. I hope something is wrong with the market and not me and that it gets back to normal soon.

I hope you right about tomorrow. I think I will take my first trade tomorrow in my head and see if market is normal. If it is then I will trade. How many times a year does market behave like this?

For sure - you certainly want to reconsider that tight stop in this market...


It's like watching Ninja Replay on 500x....
