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.

-- Big Mike

On top is the IB quote window
Below the IB on right hand side is jigsaw Summary tape > I watch this to gauge volume of trades going off at bid and offer.
Below the IB on left hand side is jigsaw recon tape > shows individual reconstructed trades.

Things I watch:
- pace of the tape
- excessive size on bid or ask and price keeps returning to it
- absorption e.g lot of volume of selling at the bid, but price holds the level
- how does bid and ask price change with the latest traded price

Sometimes it shows something and sometimes it doesn't (or I'm not good enough to read it it yet).
I use Charts to provide the context i.e where is price in relation to previous days levels and in relation to the open.
So I try to get more focussed on the tape when the price is approaching 'key levels'.

Thanks
