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.

    • EURUSD CONFRONTS A LARGER BARRIER AT 1.1257 LEVEL WHILE EXITING OVERBOUGHT POSITIONS EURUSD Price Analysis – June 4 EURUSD ‘s latest dip from a high of 1.1257 while vacating overbought positions to a level of around 1.1200 could pave way for the rally to recover. In recent days the awaited announcement of the ECB ‘s decision has risen and improved the euro – potentially putting the FX pair higher. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.1495, 1.1366, 1.1257 Support Levels: 1.1020, 1.0870, 1.0635 EURUSD Long term Trend: Ranging After seven daily progressions in a row, ranging at 3-month highs in the previous session’s level of 1.1257, EURUSD is now under some downward pressure and falling to the sub-1.1200 area. Sellers in the pair moved in following conditions of overbought (according to daily RSI). The pair is presently declining 0.27 percent at level 1.1203 and confronts initial support at level 1.1020 followed by level 1.0950 and eventually level 1.0870 (low). On the contrary, a 1.1257 (high) level breakthrough may aim 1.1366 (high) inching closer to 1.1458 (high) level. EURUSD Short term Trend: Bullish On the 4-hour chart, the Relative Strength Index has fallen underneath 70, exiting overbought conditions. Momentum stays upside-down and the pair shifts between the 5 and 13 moving average. Resistance lies at level 1.1236, a necessary step on the way to the top in the last few days, leading to a new high of 1.1257 level. The next significant level to note is level 1.1366 as seen on the daily chart. Short term support beckons at a level of 1.1183, a support line in recent days, trailed by a level of 1.1146, a high swing from April, and also a range sealer.

    • Quick Chart Update as ES Target gets Hit as shown above in previous threads but ViX still taking time ... Perhaps there is fair amount of early Precautionary-Puts due to current unrest situation in US Respectfully Flat on Swing Position around close on Wednesday & Preparing for the next Anticipated Volatility Note Much Gaps needs to be filled below on ES, but still keeping an Open Mind about the direction   Play it Safe and Nimble, & Keep BIAS away Enjoy
    • Thank you so much for all the enlightened answers to my question yesterday.  😲 This morning we have poverty enhancing lockdowns (and now curfews), dead truth, planned/sponsored/funded riots, looted stores, cities burning ... billions more new fake dollars, fractious liquidity,  ....   .....  ........  blah blah blah  - so Buy the Nasdaq ! Buy the faang !  ie   Info tech is NOT vulnerable ! ... except Here are couple of questions - What happens when amazon can’t deliver?  When their trucks  and the other shipping providers don’t make it more than a couple stops after leaving the distribution centers before being looted?  And for google apple and fakebook, what happens when ‘they’ riot at the base of cell towers and at cable distribution hubs?
    • I have a serious question. It’s a question I’m grateful that many lab partners will have many good answers.   -   What are the results when the fed transitions from being the ‘buyer of last resort’ of bonds to being the ‘only buyer’ of bonds? thx
    • Date : 2nd June 2020. FX Update – June 2 – Weaker USD. Trading Leveraged Products is risky AUDUSD, H1 The Dollar has remained soft, with risk sentiment in global markets holding up, albeit with a weakening grip. Wall Street finished with modest gains yesterday, while the USA500 is moderately in the negative, and while Asian and European markets have gained, they are up by only a limited extent. US President Trump is weighing military action and imposing curfews in cities across the country in an effort to quell rioting, while there are glass-half-full market narratives arguing that, with many assets having recouped to pre-pandemic levels, there may be less upside potential with most economies across the world not expected to fully recover until such time as there is a vaccine or cure for the coronavirus. Despite the flagging risk-on tone, the narrow trade-weighted USDIndex edged out a new low, at 97.74, which is the lowest level seen since March 16th. EURUSD has remained buoyant, and has breached yesterday’s 11-week high at 1.1155, to trade to 1.1178. USDJPY remained in a narrow range in the mid-to-upper reaches of the 107.00s, which has been the case for about two weeks now. Sterling has outperformed on Brexit-related news, with the London Times reporting that the UK government is expected to signal a compromise on fisheries and “level playing field” trade rules if the EU backs off from its “maximalist” demands on regulatory alignment and fishing access, according to unnamed sources. Cable printed a one-month peak at 1.2555, while EURGBP fell to an 18-day low at 0.8865. AUDUSD edged out a fresh four-month high, at 0.6844. The RBA did the expected and left monetary policy unchanged at its June review today, maintaining the cash rate at 0.25%, while signalling that “the accommodative approach will be maintained as long as it is required.” USDCAD printed a fresh trend low at 1.3507, the lowest seen since March 9th. The Canadian Dollar, like other oil-correlating currencies, remains supported by the ongoing buoyancy in oil prices, ahead of the rescheduled OPEC+ meeting this week, while USOil trades at $36.00 currently.
