Guys thought I would start a thread where we can freely BS on about the trading of various International Markets and how we are seeing markets we are looking at. Pretty much the discussion going on in the S&P thread which is kinda off topic but still interesting.

Basically a thread to discuss any and all movement outside specific ASX stocks. And how they are travelling. I often have my usual rubbish banter to add most days but haven't anywhere to put it to have a "cohesive narrative". :p:

Have nothing brilliant to add to kick off except cept its a sea of green out there. Surprised me!

I'll be right with you once I re-orient my screen to portrait.

I'm going to need some phone books to sit on if this continues.

Thanks for starting the thread, I felt guilty about off topic too.

She's running hard that's for sure, best not to stand in the way it seems. I heard Asian CB demand for AUDUSD down at 1.05 was advertised at least since Friday (e.g. http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2012/03/12/audusd-trade-recommendation/ and http://www.forexlive.com/blog/2012/...terest-yesterday-near-1-0500-was-very-strong/), they definitely look like they were hitting offers pretty hard in that zone today!

Thankfully, much more 'normal' trading today compared to last week. One loser and a couple of regular wins today, +10 all up, not sure I'm gonna bother with the afternoon session, might try for a couple more slugs around the London Open if it looks good...I'm not game to either try and fade here or wait to try and catch the continuation.

Whats happened to your blog?
Are you looking at bot trading or are you
going to simply out perform them manually?
Have you any interest in developing Algos for
this sort of trading?

Personally I feel that unless you have an institutional pocket size
Joe average could be badly un stuck.

I can see neuro bots popping up.
(Adapting to other bots algos for profit).

Cheers. Is there a way to get that data dating even further back?

Open interest for the index is everywhere. Like here,
http://finviz.com/futures_charts.ashx?t=NQ

For APPL no idea. You'll have to have a hunt around. Sure its out there somewhere. Not that its much use in any case. Index OI waxes and wanes and most of its not directional trades. And then of course for every short there is a long so I wonder what your looking for?

Trend I guess, to see when the trend of shorts will rise.

No time for it at the mo. May get back into one day but have bigger fish to flip than trying to post smart stuff for no one in particular.

Not really. My head hurts enough as it is. And its hardly like my current methods are broken nor have I reached the limit of my current approach...... So do and do again.

Trading an algo? or futs trading in general?

TT are developing a platform for traders that have no coding experience to create algos, called ADL I think(I think it's in beta stages now). Looks really interesting, it's all visual based, don't need to code(although I'm sure you can as well) and it seems pretty intense too as in you can do quite a lot. It might make things interesting, I know a lot of guys are pretty excited about it, so there could be a algo-mad period where guys that don't really have much idea are creating these crazy algos that might not work, could get some weird things going on......maybe :)


EDIT: Haha getting off topic straight away, my bad. *ahem* Asia up between 1-2%. There we go.

See your point. I dont and wouldnt without some reason for doing so,$s would be an influence.

Id say the In general guys would be at risk more so than those capable of testing and implementing an Algo bot.

Creating is one side of the Cube.
There are 7 others.

Apple shorts:
AAPL shorts.PNG

imo it really doesnt tell you much. After paying $$$ for accurate data: short interest, %lending available, %of lending used, etc, it didn't seem like there was any edge.

Its a very tricky area. Even with paid data :p
