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.

I want to thank Pete for his time today, especially considering it was midnight in his time zone.

Below is the video recording of the AMA session. If anyone has further questions, please ask in this thread.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I've discussed it with a few customers. I'm in 2 minds about it.

On the one hand, I do have people moving over from XTrader to Jigsaw and that feature is something they like.

On the other hand, I never set out to be an XTrader clone or use their feature list as my design spec.

The order entry aspect of Jigsaw is pretty squarely targeted as a 'no frills but no fumbling' order entry tools so leans more towards scalpers so it is very relevant.

EPIC is quite a rough estimation and pretty inaccurate, I think if I can find a better way to implement a way of showing people where they are in the queue, then I will do it. It'll have to come after the new platforms though.

I have listened to the presentation Yesterday and must admit this was my first exposure to this kind of tool. I did understand nothing and really can't see the benefits yet but i would like to stay open and deepen my knowledge a bit more question of beeing able to discuss intelligently with my peers. What path in terms of education would you suggest so that i can educate myself and is this tool a replacement of the footprint (volume ladder) ? thanks.

We have a 2-part webinar coming up on futures.io (formerly BMT) that will take order flow novices from zero to having an understanding of the concepts that underly all order flow tools (not just ours). I hope that will give people the tools for them to then go out and develop their own approach.

The Webinars will be in May. There's no harm in you having a look at this stuff before that but I wouldn't advise turning yourself into a screen zombie at this point.

I meet lots of traders through Jigsaw. Some can read a footprint and then will ask "how does cumulative delta work?" - to me, that says they don't understand the concepts that underpin all order flow tools. To me a Cumulative Delta/Footprint/Time & Sales/Jigsaw tools - it's all different ways of looking at the same thing. There's a philosophy you need to grasp. I didn't get it myself 'till someone explained it to me. So I plan to pass on the knowledge too.

I have a certain way of explaining this in laymans terms that has so far been effective. That's what we will do in May. Now - regarding the footprint, I probably already answered that in a roundabout way. There is absolutely some overlap between Jigsaw tools and the footprint. The only difference is in how 'zoomed in' you are and the fact that DOMs are unique in showing resting orders, not just executions.

I've just watched the recording and towards the end, Peter mentioned about supporting other platforms, besides NT. I sure hope Sierra Chart will be one of them..

@DionysusToast, I just watched the webinar done by @xelaar on trading thin fast markets using order flow techniques. Very informative, thanks @xelaar.

Peter (or xelaar) what are your thoughts on trading thin, yet slower moving markets. For example the YM I presume would be regarded as a thin market but it moves slowly relative to the likes of crude, gold etc.

No specific question here,...just interested in your thoughts on using orderflow techniques in thin + slow markets and what you might keep an eye out for which you wouldn't look for in other markets.

Edit: Hi again Peter, i've just watched part two of your three part webinar where you actually discuss a bit of the above. So unless there's anything else you want to add here,...please ignore my question

Diversification is the only free lunch
