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 asked this question in another thread, but I thought I would ask here as well. Does anyone here who uses the Jigsaw order flow tools (such as the DOM and the Tape) use them for position/swing trading, and if so, how useful do you find them to be?



I know that DionysusToast is mainly a intraday trader/scalper, but are there any well known position traders who use these tools?



IMHO the D&S definitely can be used for swing trades. When you arrive at the trade execution stage needing fills the D&S is extremely helpful.

When a long trade can I enter on a limit and make sure I get the price I want?

Or, do I need to enter on a market and get filled possibly over a small range?

Both of these questions are answered from the D&S.

Again if a long, are the bids being hit and chewing through or are the offers being lifted more in the area you are looking to participate in? How depth are the bids and are they being reloaded? Do you see the queue emptying or almost at your price(s)? If so place a limit. But, if the bids are just touched upon quickly and we lift back to the offers you would want to go market to get filled.

Obviously the reverse for a short.

For a swing/position trade you would just be looking at this tool for maybe a few minutes. Unlike if you are scalping.

hi paps - the levels in JS are configurable but they are actually driven/restricted by the Exchange's limits.

For instance, on CME exchanges you typically have a max of 10 levels. On Eurex you have 20.


Hope it answers your question.

That really depends on the market/feed. There's no specific limit in the Jigsaw tools but the default is 10 levels.

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to welcome back Peter Davies of Jigsaw Trading for a webinar on Thursday, August 25th @ 4:30 PM Eastern US.

The topic is "Getting Started in Scalping/Ultra Short Term Trading".

The term 'scalping' now covers many different styles of trading with one common trait. You are in and out of the market in a very short time period. Frequency of trades is usually but not always high.

In this webinar, we'll look at specific techniques for short term trading and why you might want to consider using these techniques.

- The benefits of short term trading
- Market making techniques
- Market state when to scalp
- The role of correlated markets
- Scalping volatility
- Scalping around volume
- Scalping around depth/front running the front runners
- Scalping mid-leg absorption
- Scalping around high visibility areas
- Stops definitely not what you think

Register for the event (space is limited):
http://on.futures.io/1jzye

Mike

Please note, it is first come first served in the webinar. Currently we have ~700 members signed up, and our room capacity is only 500 people. Don't join late...

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)

Stand Alone App

Hi Pete,

Great work with your recent updates to JigSaw, as a 2yr user it has really continued to give great value.

I was wondering if you have any plans to make the application standalone without platform integration? I'm using SierraChart, but still run ninja just for JigSaw tools.


DionysusToast View Post
Yes - in about 2 months we should have a version out to test


matthew28 View Post
Will the standalone platform be able to pull data out of the currently supported charting packages, say taking data from Ninjatrader, and not require a seperate data feed such as DTN IQfeed?


DionysusToast View Post
No - it'll be direct to the feed, no other platform required.

Everyone, please see this other thread for the new webinar on the Jigsaw Standalone app:

https://futures.io/vendors-product-reviews/14307-jigsaw-trading-www-jigsawtrading-com-16.html#post591483

That webinar is on Sep 26. Registration details are in the post linked above.

I'd just like to add... there can be people that may sign-up 'just in case' but don't turn up for the webinar...... I know because I am one of them but if I know I can't make it I tend to cancel my reservation, which should make room for others.
