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.

Good video, just finished watching it on youtube because the original link was not cooperating. Slightly biased documentary but interesting to here more about black box trading.

Here is the youtube links for those interested: YouTube - ‪Tegenlicht - FlashCrash - Financiele Crisis...‬‏
also here is a video I watched about Quant trading and the role CDOs played in the financial crisis
YouTube - ‪Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street (Marije Meerman, VPRO Backlight 2010)‬‏

Check this story out. Apparently this guy was responsible for 20% of the sell orders the day of the flash crash.
