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.

Jigsaw's got Peter....... Enough said.....

If you don't know Peter or haven't had a chance to exchange emails or chat with him you probably won't understand the above. From friend to helper to developer to hard worker to great trader to going out of his way to assist and help you @DionysusToast is the real deal. Peter is an innovator.

@SoftSoap

As a newbie trying to figure out volume profile/order flow trading I can attest to the amazing Jigsaw software and educational resources that Peter Davies has provided. This guy is a gem in the online, retail trading world. Also - as an Elite member at futures. io (which is supported by another rock solid individual in Big Mike) Jigsaw offers a 10% discount on the software. As we say in Canuckland (Vancouver) - you can't beat that with a stick!!

Hi there,

well, the thing is that with purchasing Jigsaw you get so much more than "just" a heatmap. You get the whole package (including the arguably best DOM in the industry, Peter's excellent support etc.) PLUS a heatmap. And all this - considering the futures.io discount - for about a third of the price of Bookmap (Bookmap used to be significantly cheaper in the past, but they had a hefty price increase last winter I think). Moreover, Bookmap seems to be charging extra for just about everything (with a monthly fee of USD 10 per add-on), like e.g. iceberg alerts (which - surprise surprise - come free of charge with Auction Vista ). When comparing both products, keep in mind that Auction Vista is relatively new while Bookmap has been on the market for quite some time; Peter and his team will continuously improve Auction Vista, though.

I actually purchased Jigsaw when Auction Vista was not even available as of yet. And I thought about buying Bookmap to have a heatmap along with the DOM back then (I liked the graphic information as opposed to pure numbers in the DOM; easier to grasp for most people that are beginners in orderflow reading). Glad that I didn't, as now - with Auction Vista - I have a heatmap free of charge, so to speak...

Don't get me wrong: Bookmap seems to be a very good product from what I hear (never used it myself). And from the experience of a trading friend who doesn't have a very good internet connection it seems to cope better with that than Jigsaw/Auction Vista. Plus they have some excellent education on the use of Bookmap for their customers (some of it being available free of charge for everyone).
But anyway, if you consider what you get when purchasing Jigsaw, it is a no-brainer for me...

I hope that Peter will hold a few more webinars and/or produce some more videos on the use of Auction Vista to fill the gap education-wise...

Just my 2 cents.

Henning

Hi guys,

It is my pleasure to welcome back Peter Davies from Jigsaw Trading on Monday, September 26th @ 4:30PM Eastern US.

This webinar takes a look at the Jigsaw Tools in a stand alone environment. Historically, the Jigsaw tools have been plug-ins for existing trading platforms. Now it is being transitioned to a stand alone platform. In effect, the goal is to plug gaps that traditional charting platforms ignore without turning Jigsaw into a traditional charting platform!

This will be the first webinar where we discuss the architecture of the product, the unique features and take a look at where Jigsaw is heading in the future.

- One size fits all platforms vs specialization
- The plug-in isn't dead! New platforms supported
- Standing Alone. The benefits to users and Jigsaw
- Traditional platform 'bug bears' and why we avoided them
- Exit strategies
- Intelligent orders
- Exchange Traded Spreads
- Volume Stops
- What's coming next?
- How will this impact the existing 3000+ users?

Stocks, futures and options can be charted the same way but trade execution tools are massively different between them. Traditionally we have mostly seen charting platforms and execution platforms combined. In our opinion that's like combining your toaster and your lawnmower. Charting is absolutely important but execution can no longer take a back seat.
