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.

Spreading with CQG, TT X_Trader or CTS T4

How many of you guys are spreading?

Are you using CQG or TT, or something else? I know CTS is introducing their Autospreader soon with server side execution.

What have you found to be the biggest obstacles?

Suggestions for dipping a toe in the water in this arena?



Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Spreading is the best way to trade futures. it's the best way to trade anything. working out which of the set is outperforming the other (have only spread two products).

The reason why it's so good is because once you have the spread charts relevant to what you're doing they work perfectly for just trading outrights or straight reversals, without having to trade both legs.

I used CQG during a trial period, but could not afford to keep it as a retail trader. I know this thread isn't recent but I wanted to share my 2c
