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.

Tomorrow Tuesday and then Wednesday

Wednesday will be the last of the month. And of third quarter.
Important day for some companies - when having end of fiscal year (like Apple).

Tomorrow the moves will be made - while on Wednesday only some fine tuning will be seen.
My guess is to see a settle price for the Dax around 9350 for Wednesday closing.

Good trades

Just to make sure that every FDAX trader gets the rumor/news: Eurex is said to offer a Mini FDAX soon.
Some key points that percolate:

Yeah thanks @choke35

it is somewhat riduculous on IB margins: today I checked what happens with them:

Price of Dax is 94xx now.
Lower than previous days - but - IB margins went up to over 12K today for the 1st contract.
That is

GFIs1

Don't forget - tomorrow last of month and 3rd quarter

Not only that - also the vola surcharges during the last months are
Hopefully the Eurex doesn't screw up this chance (like FX).
I would really appreciate to get back to a reasonable position sizing / scaling.
