Day Trading the E-mini Futures with Predictor

Recommended Posts

One of the tricks liquidity providers will use to make it appear there is activity is pull bids and offers slightly off market to attract trade... often we get a little move higher and then a drive lower

Today rare day where I exceeded my profit target and swung to a loss. The market really changed when we retested 14.25. The herd got short into a larger traders replenishing bid. Still at that time, I was doing quite well. I think one of my anticipations was that a lot of inventory was taken out at 13 and the the dominant trader was still short biased. I notice I have to be very careful when crowd catches on because they usually muck things up.

 

Still the problem was at end of day, I got a bit greedy and was a bit slow footed. I always tell the (few traders) I've trained to be ready to act in worst situation to prevent it from getting even worse. Its usually a warning when I can't get my limits filled on multiple retests.

Many HFT bots in futures are programmed to market in orders in front of order book imbalances. At times, this can make it difficult to get a limit order order filled. I can see this very easily using AlphaReveal. However, the larger speculators will tend to get their limits filled eventually as they are a stronger hands player.

Below order book imbalances often rest stops which helps the market to trend a bit.. Some people talk about liquidity but they don't stop to think who is providing liquidity to shorts or longs? These HFT bots go to market in front of these imbalances preventing slower traders from getting their limits filled and then they dump into them when they are able to detect the market shifting.

 

At any rate... good day and done for day. Some buying coming in at this 17ish level

Wrong on that one... difficult day today started off well.. ended poorly

I'm thinking that the liquidity providers may start pull from market if this slide continues... HFT bots don't have anyone else to lean on

    • Plandemic = Lies going in - lies coming out  (see covid posts herein starting circa Jan 2020 ... ) Not sayin’ I'm certain about this -  but the question is valid --- did Damar Hamlin really suffer from vaccine-induced myocarditis?  Vaccine-induced myocarditis must be considered in the differential diagnosis because the whole team is “100% vaccinated team” with experimental gene based vaccines  for COVID-19 - which have produced not a few similar conditions.  These serious reactions typically occur in older subjects but the young and  anyone at or near the tipping point of inflammation are vulnerable... and elite athletes are consistently at that tipping point - even more so deep into the season... Just saying - One of the symptoms of corrupted science is the conflation of ‘verifiable’ with actually ‘verified’.  Billions of people took vaccines - following the (FALSE) science that intentionally furnished them (FALSE)  scientific credibility - because they are verifiable.  But they were never verified.  They are still NOT verified !!!!  Brave new world where if your pharm inc. has the right connections  you can now profitably dispense just about any old Lagevrio with impunity way before it has been verified - as long as it’s ostensibly 'verifiable' Just sayin’... For alternaltive snicks and giggles see - https://www.naturalhealth365.com/covid-shot-makers-to-investigate-harm-caused-by-their-injections.html  (of course there’s no way they could ever manipulate their data... ) https://www.naturalhealth365.com/bombshell-report-reveals-massive-hypertension-signal-after-covid-shot.html https://www.naturalhealth365.com/mrna-covid-shots-are-result-of-u-s-military-program-run-by-darpa-evidence-reveals.html etcx ... and now in a related story , Africa, which has the lowest vaccinated %'s in the world... and also the lowest incidence and complications from covid in the world hm ??? - is in the crosshairs of the WEF this year ... = billions more for the pharmCartels... all under the guise of "equity"  (btw, "equity" is now a consistently applied centralization/globalist buzzword/tell... watch for it coming to a propaganda near you...just sayin)
