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.

Would you prefer Trading the ES as a beginner or the treasuries? Because I saw Nice order flow activity in the ZN.

I think it comes down to your personality.

Right now, it's very volatile, so there's a lot of action in the ZN.

A lot of the time though - it can be a real sleepy market. So it all boils down to what suits you.

I know Crude traders that like to trade it because of all the action - nut it's too fast for me.


My opinion - it's best to go through a "market selection" phase - just spend a few days looking at various markets when you start and see if one resonates with you.

ASTONISHING JIGSAW

Hello Pete!

Just YESTERDAY I was wondering about to ask you for something like Stage5TradeAnalyzer version for Jigsaw.

WOOOOOW...



But, when a Jigsaw plugin for Sierra Chart?

I third that question - I'm thinking of migrating fully from Multicharts to SierraChart and it would be great to have Jigsaw available on a platform that has such low CPU utilization as well as great TPO and VP capability

Looks like Jigsaw Tools work with Sierra Charts via Stage 5 Trading:

Sierra Chart + Jigsaw + S5 Trader (OEC Trader) - Jigsaw Trading

Hey Peter,

I'm back with a few questions:
- Do you use VWAP in your trading? Is it an important level?
- How do you define a settlement? And what is it?
- When does the globex session for the ES starts and ends?
- Do you use yesterday's VAH/L?

Thanks in advance and good trading!

I don't trade off VWAP personally.

Settlement I get from this page: http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/equity-index/us-index/e-mini-sandp500.html

A good description of settlement is here: pricing - The difference between Close price and Settelment Price for future contracts - Quantitative Finance Stack Exchange

For Globex - it opens at 5pm Chicago time but for me I count anything outside of the regular stock trading session as Globex. Official times are here: http://www.cmegroup.com/trading/equity-index/us-index/e-mini-sandp500_contract_specifications.html

And yes - I always have an eye on yesterdays VAL/VAH from the cash/pit/stock session only

@DionysusToast

Interesting note on the cash levels, thank you

For /CL I would not know where to go but with /6E no problem

And yes sir on the settlement levels, very important lesson taught to me by @Cashish

For those interested to the tick dot com has a FREE email service with fillable/ printable PDF's for the major futs markets (they use settlement) with daily news, notes etc

Anyway, thank you

Full disclosure: I have no interest in tothetick
