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.

Have you spoken with your broker, AMP Futures about this?

Sure I will. Just thought you can throw answers so others can see them too... as we know AMP is not here anymore

Maybe I will do the job

You've touched on some of issues that make the TT platform more user friendly.

In the X_TRADER infrastructure, we rely on our FCM partners to manage much of the resources tied to your questions. With the TT platform, we manage all of the front through back end infrastructure which makes it easier for you to get set up and also helps you manage costs as the TT pricing is clearly defined.

Any monthly fees from h/w side ?
Any monthly fees in addition to AMP Futures commissions ?"

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)

Hi @patrickrooney. I was just checking the old ADL forums to look something old up and saw the announcement that "This forum will be decommissioned as of 8/31/16". Can you confirm whether this means that you will no longer be able to post or whether you will be taking the forum off line and all that information will be lost?

Hello @SMCJB. That date is not set in stone but you should be prepared for it.

Best-
Patrick

All gone. What a shame.

Flaw with options pricing

in TT web platform, I have only taken a trial so it is sim data but there appears to be a serious flaw with the tick value increments for ES options. ES options are priced at .05 tick increments only for those options priced under 5.00, everything else is priced in .25 increments. Since yours are priced in .05 increments all the way up, there are 4 dead tick zones between each tradeable price. I have marked the tradeable prices on the right side dom in the pic.

Also when searching for an options strike such as EW4 2140 puts the options that come up are completely random order as far as I can tell, 2120 puts then 1570 calls then 2900 puts etc.

Here

Here is the correct tick increment above/below the 5.00 line for ES options, any strike

Hello @Japhro. We are aware of the tick table issue with some options contacts and are working to resolve this issue. The same goes for the weekly ES options. Their naming convention is irregular and we're making some changes to improve our search functionality for finding these contracts.

ES options

The naming convention is logical

EW1 = end of week 1
EW2 = end of week 2
EW3 = end of week 3
EW4 = end of week 4
EOM - end of month
ES = standard quarterly options

CGQ handles it this way, by creating a string

P.EW4V162140

so that's a Put, end of week 4, V for october, 16 for 2016, 2140 for strike

If you create a naming convention like this or similar then all anyone has to do is instead of searching through a number of pages for the right strike they can easily just type in the string and the relevant strike pops up

Thanks. We're fully aware of the naming convention and how it comes across from the exchange, we just haven't adjusted for it yet. That is in the works and is in fact a very high level priority for resolution at this time.

You guys are not the only ones, on Motivewave platform they have 1 cent tick increments for all options, so their top of the line $1600 USD platform has 24 useless tick intervals between each tradeable price, and it has been this way for 4 years that I know of. Likely this is because of equity options which have 1c intervals but still, it is untradeable for futures options.
