IB and Price Pauses

Recommended Posts

Hello Traders,

 

I wonder if someone would be so kind as to tell me if they observed the price pausing for YM on 12/13/11 (and today) at the following times and prices:

 

On 12/13/11, YM paused at the times specified below at the stated prices.

 

PRICE START TIME END TIME TIME DIFFERENCE

12127 14:05:51 14:07:55 0:02:04

12126 14:08:37 14:09:22 0:00:45

12087 14:17:31 14:18:25 0:00:54

12025 14:58:40 14:59:45 0:01:05

 

Today, 12/14/11 YM paused at the prices stated below

PRICE START TIME END TIME TIME DIFFERENCE

11818 15:22:57 15:24:28 0:01:31

11845 15:53:12 15:22:00 0:01:48

 

 

So, for example, on 12/13/11 I observed the price for YM remain at 12127 for 2mins at 4 seconds. Did anyone see that?

 

Today, I observed the price for YM remain 11818 for 1min and 31 seconds and so on ... Again did anyone else notice that?

 

Please let me know, as I'm not sure if I this is common or should complain to Interactive Broker.

 

Really appreciate your feedback on this.

 

Cheers

 

Carlton

I don't know what are you going to complain about.

 

Interactivebrokers broadcasts the same quotes to all the clients.

It is like a radio broadcast, everybody receives the same quote from the same source at the same origin.

 

If there is any delay at IB, everybody would receive the same delay.

 

If you are the only one that receives delayed data, then the delay would have been caused by something somewhere between Interactivebrokers and your computer.

Hi Tams, as always thanks for responding (you are so helpful).

 

I have to admit, I wasn't aware that YM had rolled over last Thursday. I've been tracking December, 2011. Should I be tracking March, 2012?

 

Cheers

here's my data from interactivebrokers.

 

it is the same data you have, you can compare them to see if your ISP caused any discrepancies.

 

Tams, I've been looking at your quotes for 12/13/11, however I don't see any of my quotes listed. For example, just doing a search for YM price of12127, I'm not seeing anything in your attachment ......

Tams, as you can see from the attachment, the price of YM at 19:05:51 GMT (14:05:51 EST) is 12127, for just over 2 minutes the price is still at 12127. However, I don't see that price in your attachment.....

the rollover for index futures is 8 days before expiry.

yes, you MUST change contract to the active month, which is Mar 2012.

 

the trading activity of the current month drops dramatically after rollover,

thus you see the extended "price pause".

 

you can call up both months and compare the volume difference.

 

see this article for info

Does it not reopen at 15mins later at 15:30?

 

Cheers

 

you should pay attention to volume activities

 

please the volume bars on the bottom of your chart.

observe the volume level between RTH and after hours.

that's because the quotes I attached above are for the active month -- Mar 2012.

Tams, am I correct in the above statement? Also, if YM closes at 15:15, how is it that I have traded YM after that time?

 

Cheers

 

you should always study the contract specification before you start trading the instrument.

The document is available at the exchange's website.

 

 

the market re-opens after RTH for the over night session, that's why your trade gets executed after close.

I thought I read that YM close at 15:15pm for maintenance and then re-opened at 15:30pm. Is that incorrect?

Hi Tam,

 

You may recall that I've been using Excel to develop a system based on trading at levels where price pauses. The attached is typical of the type of wining/losing trades I have been achieving using the system. I trade two hours a day - 14:00 - 16:00.

 

I wonder if I could ask you (or any trader willing to comment) to take a look at the trade log for 12/13/11 and let me know if that is typical of what traders would expect to be earning per day.

 

Without being condescending, Blue represents profits, Red represents losses.

 

Cheers

what is the time zone of 14:00 - 16:00 ? New York time? Exchange time?

 

 

every trader is different... you have to be comfortable with your expectation and risk tolerance.

    • https://tradingeconomics.com/united-states/money-supply-m2 MOAI nflation in slow motion ie more Thank god Nothing and I mean NOTHING like Zimbabwe could ever happen in the developed nations because we are very smart and we don’t have any corruption or moral hazards...  We must understand that the zimbobs had no real need to nflate their money supply, while we do have a ‘real’ crisis that needs more money - insert  :sar chasm smilie for the many context deficits on board: ... We must understand that each increment of new fake money for the not very bright zimbobs (and also the inexperienced 'kingdumbs, viemers, venuzwalens, argents, etc etc')  was meant to be the last ... meanwhile - while  we are assured these measures are only temporary - we are provided no delusions contraindicating that we may have to go much much mush further ... but that we are still going to be THE exception... like - Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell recently did an interview with Princeton economist Alan Blinder. Powell admitted that the central bank had “crossed a lot of red lines,” but insisted he was comfortable with the actions, given “this is that situation in which you do that, and you figure it out afterward.” (reassured yet?).  Binder then asked Powell if there is any limit to how much the Fed’s balance sheet can grow and Powell said he wasn’t concerned and the balance sheet has a long way to go. All ‘powell’ is doing is inflation. He is inflating the money supply. That is the definition of inflation. Expand the money supply. But ‘powell’ is not concerned. He’s a one indicator trader.  His indicator’s name is Falling Prices. ... and falling prices indicates to ‘powell’ that things are under the control of ‘normal’ economic cycles instead of under ‘powell’ control.  However it should be noted,  if ‘powell’ really believes there is no limit to the size of the balance sheet that means there is no limit to the depths to which the 'dollar' and all the other fake currs around the world can plunge.  In a podcast, Peter Schiff called it the Nancy Pelosi version of monetary policy. “We need to print the money to see where it goes.”  My momentary questions are 1 what % of denizens believe this is going to work? and 2 what would it take for them (you) to change these beliefs / this trust... ??? At this point please please please  DO NOT  look at a graph of the USD purchasing power for the last 110 years.   must stop now to BmoreofTFD :wink wink?:
    • Hyperinflation is a monetary phenomenon and demand is not as significant factor in pushing up prices. Prices go up because the value of the fiat paper money is falling as more and more is created. Example:  In Zimbabwe stores didn't even have goods on the shelves, people were hungry,  water and  electricity was scarce, no public transportation, gas was sold on the black market and large quantities of paper money confiscated...and yet the Stock market kept soaring... As the hyperinflation started to gain traction, there was a six week period in which the currency tumbled 10-fold. That’s a huge drop. During that time the stock market rose 500-fold. So corrected for inflation, the stock market rose 50-fold measured in US dollars. Six weeks later, the Zimbabwe currency had eroded another 100-fold and the Zimbabwe stock market went to zero. It fell 99.9% and then it stopped trading. In other words, ONLY those invested in PHYSICAL Gold and Silver were safe...the others lost it ALL!  Thank god Nothing and I mean NOTHING like that could ever happen in the developed nations because we are very smart and we don’t have any corruption or moral hazards ... see https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M2  for how to smartly drag out destruction and collapse ... still, ultimately ... "Good money drives out the bad."  So we really just have the one little issue to deal with - for us  no good money currently exists on this planet to drive out the bad ...  ...maybe we should just trust them to build us a new eCurrency on their blockchain. ..
