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.

Even more weird day today - good volume but likely even lower liquidity than yesterday - spread spikes all the time, little gaps all over the place. I had spoken with Baloo trader on Twitter y-day, he mentioned that cash index had like the lowest volume for the long time, while futures were good on volume. Same today, good volume in futures but likely very bad liquidity and probably very illiquid cash index too.

Hi Alex
Thanks for comments - it is very true that year end holds some surprises.
Coming weeks will be even with less volume.
For that the stop loss settings come in handy :-)

Good trades!

Tomorrow Triple Witch


We will see a final triple witch day tomorrow.
With not too much movement as that was already in the days before.

Good trades - or sit on hands :-)
