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.

The end of the CME waiver?


I thought I'd posted this a few days ago.

I heard that the CME Waiver program won't continue past Jan 1st 2015.

So for those of us trading US Futures markets, we'll have to pay for data starting next year.

Futures Edge on FIO

What happens to the S&P 500 when a new President takes office?

Don't think the cost is significantly high:

Welcome to DTN IQFeed! - Fast, Reliable, Affordable. Market Data and API's.

"As long as you qualify for the Non-Professional CME Globex data package, you will receive reduced exchange fees of $1 per month per CME Group exchange for level I data. Level II data is available for $5 per month per CME Group exchange. You can also receive all CME Group exchange's Globex data packaged together for $3 per month for Level I data or $15 for Level II data."

"This program replaced the CME Exchange Fee waiver program on March 1, 2014. Customer's who participated in the CME Exchange Fee waiver program as of February 28, 2014 were grandfathered in and will continue to receive fee waivers through the end of 2014."

Although interestingly on CME's groups webpage there's a link that if you're grandfathered you also get a further 50% discount if you are a Professional user (unfortunately not for non-pro usage).

Also working quite closely with the exchanges in a professional capacity / dayjob, I know they are all coming forward with pricing policies for non-display usage - all of them. This is less impactful to the average trader, however it will be for people doing business like tool providers and users that run external systems.

Non display usage will be any sort of use of their data that is outside of pure on chart/dom usage. Eg, for running calculations or feeding into an external system. See below quote form the exchange website as what the class as non display usage:

A. Automated Trading Systems (ATS) systems that use CME Group information to trade
via automated systems, either for purposes of routing orders to CME Group or to other
B. Trade Internalization the use of market data in systems that match trades within an
organization, as opposed to routing to the exchange
C. Internal Non-Display use of data for systems processing and calculations, such as
portfolio management, credit and risk systems and all other forms of non-display use.

You did, here:

And I replied and linked to the main discussion thread, and closed it as a duplicate.


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.
