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.

ALARM: Eurex down more than one hour

Very bad signal - Eurex halted right after 11:03 and all derivatives are down.
No futures, no CFDs, no Options. ALL down. And even more....
While EUR/USD is heading down.

Such markets are NOT tradeable: All indices have a lag and nothing seems normal.

There is even some discussion on some channels that this "IT problem" was made
to halt the explosive Dax on some level.

Anyway - be alerted by such strange behaviour - man made - from the markets!

Good Trades

We only can hope that we get back on the feet!

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
Seems like the trading has restarted now...

But be extremely cautious - things may be out of normal behaviour for the rest of the day!

PS: best to close the open trades and stay at the sidelines!
One does not not know what comes next:

Leo and Xetra just made normal waves the whole time.

Looks like a consol from which +/- 200 is likely.

YES - I do not interfere with entry and exit times that are important part of the rules.
In fact - today I was online - while normally the trade is sort of "set & forget".
To get a normal longtime result (in this thread 4 years) I will not interfere - even during
exchange problems to have fair results.
My warnings were for some followers to get out when things are no longer normal.

You are right - the waves were "normal" - but the volume was not :-)
It broke down after EUREX was down.
