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.

morad,

have you ever considered adjusting your zig zag study in conjunction with volatility changes? In your opinion what would the benefits and downfalls be for such an approach. Additionally, if you trade globex and US cash session do you think it would be prudent to run separate harmonic studies on each session?

thanks.

Great question.

Yes, I do adjust the zigzag. It is interesting though that the ES doesn't veer much away from 2.5-3.25 pts per rotation. That product is not able to sustain high volatility for long enough periods of time. I update zigzag studies about every 6 months. IRT has made it much easier to do now. It is more important to stay up to date on the harmonic changing on thinner products like the NQ, TF, FDAX, GC, CL, SI and others.

Yes, I would want to know what the globex session is doing versus US RTH. I generally treat Globex like it is a whole different product. Technically it is because the underlying stocks are not trading.

Best,
FT71

Institutional / firm wide risk management practices

@FuturesTrader71

I am interested in what type of risk management practices, and procedures are taken at an institutional level. What types of things are firms looking at if they are managing several desks, with dozens of strategies and instruments? Other than VaR, cVAR, Expected Shortfall, instrument or strategy correlation? I would like your input on what its like to manage such a large operation?

Question to FT71 today

Is he using Investor RT for Orientation, planning etc.. and
S5 Trading Platform for executing the orders, or is he also using Investor RT for trading.
Is it possible to trade from IRT in the charts.
