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.

What is a stale buyer and why should he MUST buy and MUST suffer losses?

If he knows he is about to suffer loss, why didn't he cancel his bids and avoid unwanted fillings?

Lastly,
Can stale buyers buy with:
1.algorithms like TWAP
2.perfect prints on ask
3.double prints

Rising bids


Why would the Large players show their limits in Level 2. By this way, they are just telling the public where they are going to buy or sell. They will hide as much info as possible.

This is my new research paper and I hope the seniors will agree with me in this topic that, big players will NEVER SHOW THE SIZE OF THEIR BID.

They will place a large bid BUT, they will show only 100-200 units instead of 50000 units.

Only way to recognize if there is a large pro bidding is to search for bids that are:
1. Not showing size, and
2. It is rising up.

Please look into the attached video.

1. Time= 00:19...bid size =154 but bid rate rising from 66.60 to 66.65
2. Time= 00:22...bid size =153 but bid rate rising from 66.70 to 66.75 to 66.80 to 66.85.

While these bids were rising, not a single trade was reported.

After these events, price shoot up 10 points.

Dear seniors, have I pointed out something important or was that useless??

If that was important, let me ask whether we will search for this phenomenon only in the Best Bid or all bid levels below it? Does all of them indicates the presence of a big buyer?
