what should i know abt trading ES futes

Mentions:#ES

Options on futures don’t work like that. ES/NQ is a liquid market. Of course no one is going to bid on something that is way OTM and close to expiry. It doesn’t mean there is no liquidity at all in the expiring month and it has nothing to do with rolling. The futures still settle to the index close, so even if open interest has rolled to a new month, the old month still has volatility.

Mentions:#ES

Ok since my joke was mean, I'll explain it. Standard & Poors makes the S&P 500 index. There's a bunch of different ways to trade it. SPY, VOO, IVV are exchange traded funds. ES is the ticker for S&P 500 futures. SPX is the exchange itself. You can't buy it directly, but you can buy options on it. The New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq handle stock and ETF trades, the Chicago Board of Options Exchange handles SPY options and SPX options, and Chicago Mercantile Exchange handles futures. They're different products from different companies. They usually trade about the same since the track the same index, but it's the middle of the night and there's not that many people trading right now. So the bid-ask spread is wide on all of these. Also, tomorrow is triple witching, which is when a bunch of contracts on these expire. It happens every 3 months. Lastly, the S&P 500 itself is being rebalanced tomorrow. So all of this adds up to small inconsistencies in the prices. You wouldn't normally notice them, but just above 0% is green and just below 0% is red so it sticks out to anxious pajama traders.

Robinhood doesn’t have ES you idiot.

Different underlyings. The PDS trade is the 1-1-2 and I put it on as a campaign using /ES. 120 DTE every 2 weeks. Other trades depend on chart setup.

Well this sucks. Port dipped below 25k and I got flagged. Now I grind out /ES futures contracts all night to get open in the morning above 25k.

Mentions:#ES

Looking at the ES chart over the last 16 quarters, there's aren't necessarily any discernable patterns in terms of direction or volatility. There's a pretty decent mix between up and down weeks leading up to and including Quad Witching Week. There's also no pattern of higher timeframe (1W, 1D) volatility...sometimes the range of the week is near the ATR, sometimes it's not. On an intraday basis, the 1H ES chart seems to show that the volatility for Quad Witching Day and the week prior usually extend a fair amount beyond the high or low for the week leading into that two week stretch. The only other constant that I can identify is higher volume (obviously) as many portfolio managers do their quarterly index rebalancing.

Mentions:#ES#ATR

If you want to be serious with this, then you can look up the IRS 1040-ES estimated taxes sheet and become comfortable with going through that process. If you find that your estimated unwithheld taxes for the year is expect to exceed $1,000, then will want to consider either making estimated tax payments through out the year, or increase any discretionary extra withholdings through your employer (via a IRS Form W-4), or ignore it and pay any late penalty the IRS may impose come tax time.

also just buy SPY leaps or ES futures for 10x-100x leverage

Mentions:#SPY#ES

Starting point is basically David Sun's trade busters (tastylive-ish) approach. OTM puts on SPX, SPY, ES etc have historically been overpriced even when including crashes since institutional investors need to reduce delta on their positions, so they are willing to pay a premium on their premiums for that. So sell properly sized 90 DTE puts consistently (daily). You take on extra Vega, so by doing a calendar ratio spread buying further OTM puts with a nearer DTE contracts. Monitor correlation between positions to make sure you are not over exposed. I traded ES, which uses SPAN margin, so you can actually sell calls, effectively forming a strangle, without increasing margin. Manage the calls and puts separately (50% profit take, 2x stop loss), and constantly buying to maintain exposure. Since the calls and puts are mostly negatively correlated, you are both delta neutral and aren't actually increasing value at risk that much. Your time in trade for the puts will typically be shorter than the calls, so you have to maintain that you don't over buy one side or the other. That's where monitoring correlation and overall delta come into play. It really comes down to "my edge is theta decay that comes from me selling insurance contracts." Once you know that, you start simple: sell puts. Then you add layers to manage your risk for your goals and profile.

It’s the “natural rate of interest”, ie where interest rates would fall in a perfect market with no transaction costs, no liquidity concerns, etc. It’s a theoretical construct to use as a benchmark for tight vs loose monetary policy. For instance the fed having their short rate at 2% in 2016 would have been incredibly tight because the natural rate of interest was lower than that, but in 2022 it would have been too loose. Hope that helps. If not there’s these: https://files.stlouisfed.org/files/htdocs/publications/es/05/ES0506.pdf https://www.richmondfed.org/~/media/richmondfedorg/publications/research/economic_brief/2015/pdf/eb_15-10.pdf

I just wouldn't trade that strategy that way if premiums are 4x and you don't think anything changed in the market to warrant these fluctuations. Usually a 4 fold increase would be because market volatility has increased due to some event such as an FOMC meeting, earnings season etc. This strategy is based on the assumption that 0dte options are mispriced and the IV for these options is wrong. You may be right on this you may not no-one can really know for certain. You can also sell out early and still realize 2, 3, 4 x gains on a upswing that may only last an hour or so which is probably a better idea than just blindly holding to close all the time. However you are day trading so your entries should be based on day trading principle such as prince action, momentum etc, should have a clear plan for exit and entries and shouldn't be blindly and everyday. Also you should probably trade ES futures options as the commissions are a lot cheaper for the amount of capital you get per contract.

I checked with TOS support and they don't allow calendars or diagonals on /ES (I assume this applies to all futures options). They said they were referring the problem to the development team. Disappointing.

There are a lot of key factors. some of them are below. Minimum tick value (each future moves differently, for e.g. an /ES future moves $12.5 for each tick, /ZB moves $15.625) Contract size - each future has a different notional value, i will do a detail review of that soon. Liquidity - futures are more liquid Expiration cycles - they have a lot of expiration cycles

Would you mind explaining your position? It looks like you are short 180 contracts on the ES, but how does that give you 75,000:1 leverage? I thought each contract required around $20k margin, so180 contracts would mean around $3.5m in margin. That would equate to a 14-15:1 leverage.

Mentions:#ES

So I mostly care about data for NDX but would also like Spx, spy, qqq, NQ, ES, MES, MNQ. It would probably be helpful to also track the top holdings since the market is so concentrated, so AAPL, Msft, Googl, meta, Tesla, nvda, Amzn, broadcom. I would need real time because I need to know what the order book looks or what to expect when say NDX is at 18,770. It helps with price discovery and pattern recognition. Some of the questions I am trying to answer are, are there buyers, what does the bid ask look like, how is the spread, what’s the volume like, how sensitive are the prices, how do they react to price increase/decrease, how big are the fluctuations, etc. The price doesn’t seem that bad tbh, assuming I can pay it monthly. Polygon seems to help with time and sales data but wouldn’t show me live intraday bid asks which are just as important.

Mentions:#ES

>My concern/question is that its pointless to roll the contract. You realize the loss. Its not like holding an equity thats been put to you and trading out of it eventually with no loss. The loss is realized so you should pause to re-evaluate, reset, and start a fresh trade idea from scratch. It really is no different from an equity, besides you having to roll to the next future's contract. You can roll out, and if /ES (SP500) rallies above your cost basis, you will see a net net profit between the contracts. But yes, you can always re-evaluate if your conviction or risk tolerance has changed. As far as rolling to the next futures contract, it will roll to the next active month contract. There is little slippage or contango on financial instruments futures, so it will be pretty close to whatever the future's contract price is on the one about to expire. Here is a list of the future month codes, so you can view them yourself: [https://www.cmegroup.com/month-codes.html](https://www.cmegroup.com/month-codes.html)

Mentions:#ES

* ES Futures are contracts and expire. So soon as expires assuming it is still down from the PUT strike price it locks in the loss permanently correct? It will be marked as a loss on the month contract. If it is rolled and rallies back to your strike you had on the old future's contract, you will see a unrealized profit on that contract (minus nuisances like contango (carrying cost on SP500). You can choose to close out that contract, realizing a profit on the current contract. I don't know exactly what your concern or question is, though? Also to note, you won't get assigned on all expirations. I forget which ones will cash-settle versus get assigned, but the buying power and risk profile is the same, so it doesn't matter much

Mentions:#ES

I'll make this brief with bullet points for the scenario: - I sell an ES futures PUT - ES Drops - Put expires in the money and I am assigned 1 ES contract which I am happy to take in this scenario at discounted price - ES Futures are contracts and expire. So soon as expires assuming it is still down from the PUT strike price it locks in the loss permanently correct? - Brokers with automatic futures roles (like IB) simply close out the futures contract (locking in the loss) and rebuy a new futures contract at that same price in the next futures expiration cycle correct? Point of all this being is that its kinda pointless to accept assignment of a futures contract thats been PUT to you. Am I missing anything?

Mentions:#ES

I’m gonna hazard a yes, only because a successful trader I know trades both SPY and ES (? - whatever the SP500 futures are) and he’s successful at both but seems to prefer the ES

E-mins are my jam! I just don’t trade them like this though, I never hold them longer than a day I’m usually in and out in under 5-15 minutes. I see you got a big ol 160 contract shortsky @ 5251.25, what’s that like 2M margin req? Down about or close to 50% overall? For folks not familiar with /ES that means E-mini June 24 futures contacts have to come back down to 5251.25 for him to break even (he still has to pay commissions on those 160 contacts so real BE is a bit lower). The market has been going up the past week, explaining the negative P/L on his short. You know it not out of the realm of possibility that this could still turn around for you in the next week or two but I’m curious do you have a stop somewhere? It is a short after all, you know theoretical infinite loss and all that blah blah blah

I did, but I'm leaving again. Not because of them, but because I'm just tired of the inconsistency of options. I'm switching to futures. But it's better. I don't listen to live trading, but the signals have been crazy. I see them getting 50-70% pretty often. Felony calls some bangers, this dude gets crazy returns. He's my favorite, by far, no question. Obviously they take losses, but they've gotten better about not forcing trades just because the group is complaining. They don't risk anybody's money. I recommend them, no doubt, but I'm not into options anymore, so I'm leaving. Felony calls the occasional futures play, ES and NQ, but not enough for me to stay and wait for it.

Mentions:#ES

I do this with futures e-mini S&P and e-mini Nasdaq. For NQ I sell one day out, for ES I sell two days out. Don't forget that due to the theory of put call parity you can just as easily sell the corresponding put.

Exactly, Mancini says he always has targets. Closes 75% at first target, then more at second target and leaves 10% to run. Raises stop loss at every swing low on 15 minute timeframe until it stops out. Of course this is ES futures contracts he’s doing but I’m sure similar rules apply across the board to some degree…that being said it never gets less annoying but accepting you took a piece of the pie and locked in gains should be the focus. You’ll never get the whole thing consistently and by being a perfectionist trying to time it all perfectly I’ve stressed myself out way more than just accepting I took a win.

"82 billion is just over 300,000 individual ES futures." I am not commenting on whether this bank issue is significant, but your comparison is meaningless. It would take $444M in margin to establish a 300,000 ES position. That is a more relevant comparison.

82 billion is just over 300,000 individual ES futures. June 3rd open interest was 2.2 million ES futures or 7x that amount. Get a grip on putting this to context dude. It’s not much.

You can hedge options with futures. For example, if you go long on SPX calls, you can hedge by shorting an ES future if the market starts moving against you. If the market reverses, you can close out the short ES position for a profit. However, if the market continues to decline, you have the option to either close your original call position or short additional ES futures if you still believe your call will eventually be profitable.

How is ES not connected to SPX? Your Future contract value is basically the Future value of current Spot level at expiry T. It would be FV = PV * e^((r - d) * t)
