Tes that would be great as I am quite successful with end of day expiry but keeps me at computer all day basically and would like to try the short expiry. I see from your shot that you just put the oirder in fre minutes before the trade closes. Can you eleborate how you decide the direction at such short notice?

I closed out early as the market began to tank. I closed out at a loss but shut the position down at a value of £92 so lost 8% on the position.
Basically I have complete control, once I trade I can either hold to the end of day and I either get full return or zero or I can sell at any point during the day to take a proffit or limit a loss. If the market closses between my two boundaries I get the full quoted return.
If sell before the end of day you do not get the full return.... An option by definition either matures at 0 or 1 "time to maturity determines this and as time continues the contracts moves closer to either 0 or 1.
If I bought a £100 FTSE option with PYXmarkets that would mature at £500 at 8am. If at noon I was in the money it would be worth circa £250 and I could take that profit. If it was out of the money half way through the day it would be worth circa £50.
Hope that helps. I'll keep posting trade shots.
First play of the morning.
With Greek still uncertain even after a positive election I can predict a volatile days trading.
Two trades covering a UK bank up and down will net me a strong return either way. Now all I do is wait for direction and sell the loss making trade around 20% down..... I can achieve a higher net return at close of business by cutting my losing trade early.
So here you can see that I have already made 108% from this trade, I could sell this if I wanted to take the profit.
I will leave this to run for a while longer to as I still have room to make a further 180% from my original position, if left to close out the day in the money the full return will be £389 from a £100 trade.
How are you finding it with PYX. Completely different system to learn how to use right.
I traded demo for around two weeks to test out some strategies. I am doing quite well with this platform now and very rarely sell positions early.... unless I have traded both side of an asset.
Here's what not to do. Got too aggressive today with the MM and trades. Should have quit while I was ahead. Not too volatile today, perhaps investors are waiting for The Fed tomorrow.
Note to self: Sideways markets in a tight range are no good to trade, wait for the break.
u might want to explore how to exploit the sideways or indecisiveness of the market. Boundary trading features might come in handy.
both your eminis are ATM. i never had more than 1 ATM in one day !
Good trade still
Thanks Bro! Will try the double-up & recovery next week, see how it'll perform. You did some nice trades also.
I'm just trying to specialize in the hi/low trading. My S/R strategy works well, you just have to know when S/R is not going to hold. That will come with screen time.
