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.

I don't think there is an actual thread to discuss ORB trades. For those of you who are unaware an ORB trade refers to an Opening Range Breakout. Thought I would get a thread started. Figured we could discuss different ORB's (5 min, 15 min, 30 min, etc) on different instruments (ES, CL, etc).

Also what are people finding that might contribute to the odds off success of an ORB trade. One thing I've found, at least on ES, is that the success of the ORB seems to be greatly enhanced if there is a gap. I snagged that idea from Brooks book and started watching for it. The rationale is that it'll either be a breakaway gap in which case the gap continues and the ORB works or it'll try and fill the gap in which case reversing the ORB works as well.

Anyhow, hope this thread helps some people out.

Hi...there's a few folks around here that are interested in the ORB. I started a thread awhile back 10 tick open range play, and got some interesting replies.

Here's a link that Shodson provided if you want to read up on Crabels ORB Toby Crabel Pdf

dwemini says that Market Gauge teaches the ORB.

And Jeff posts several examples in his All you need thread.
