Welcome to

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.

So many tricks, and just some ideas to show that large traders would be using both types of orders, and just not so simple.

Hope that helps. Just my measly two cents on topic.

Thanks Richard,

Good points. U R right, not so simple.
Like the answers to most questions, the answer seems to be "Depends."

The reason I started the the thread in relation to Delta-based trading philosophy.
Some the biggest proponents of the method believe that large traders use mostly market orders to get filled, hence those footprints are worth following.
But that never made cents (sorry) to me.

As I see it, "urgent" traders (market orders) do not seem like they will be most successful in the long run.

Any opinions welcomed.
