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.

since am not in a short now.....if it doesnt do a backtest....will need to miss the move. Is ok. it's anyways going to be a volatile week....

if it does get into the zone 77-94s...i know what i will do....however if it doesnt touch that....during OVN or RTH...will let stuff go.

skews as mentioned are massive...typically SM is directional....however am not able to judge any direction...which tells be there is smart SM & not so smart. So EOD Friday read was Bought:BAC/CSCO.....Sold:APPL/MFST..this is just a small sample of others...with the main drivers having come on Tues/Wed of last week.

anyways lots of stuff in the news. There are times news works & at times it doesnt. They talking of a PR default tomorrow at the time of writing this...& brexit in June....go figure...so may/june will be the most volatile is what i think.

Lol...again its not the news...or is it. Just observing strange patterns in this maze which we call the market

Futures Edge on FIO

Which products do you trade?

 
always learning...it never stops. well was short into the move...but no pos now...holding shorts is tougher for me...

anyways will be watching this....feel USDJPY and ES has some divergences...ES never made its full target....

so far not seeing selling premarkt...& EOD showed buys...so today Open & RTH will be a learning experience 5-3.
Will they sell into the liquidity..... or ? have to wait n see

ES always a beauty...will need to check price EOD.... and see if any effect on the massive buys yester EOD

expectation was much higher....after a short @ OVN ...but she kept rolling down...was able to catch a decent L too.

now...sitting tight....thinking the rest of the week will give ample opportunity...will be extremely volatile....thats what data shows... since there are no buys/sells which are directional. this is something very unique going on currently.

Also been holidays past few days.....so will be interesting what happens to USDJPY at open in Japan. Will they let this slide...?....hmm who knows....either ways trade what is happening....rather than a wild wish

just a few charts....nothing more. not many comments here....as its just for my records. Thought of putting markers here on some days. what i did not like was certain buys on some instruments...will see how it plays.

anyways here is NY/NAS/Russ. Traditional stuff may not work in the way it's looked at...or would it. No comments.
also a 60min...Supply/DMZ...& a chart on ES for 5-4...where i think there's a div with fx....will see shortly if there really is

some very interesting divergences 60min/2mins timeframes...not attaching the same. will see how this plays out. I normally do not get into specifics since there are things i want to keep to myself & journal open.

also a corr chart....its mainly to check a 1 sided market... anyways i need to put it here...for later ref.
