Using NT8.

I am a little turned off by FX at the I had $80k+ in my FX acct and that was fine. Then I moved funds around and left ~$12k in that FX acct with NT brokerage. Now the fills are real stinko. Accts >= $20k are consider Active Trader status and have a better spread.

Yeah I would not use vwap on FX instruments....won't mean much as I understand it. Levels and momentum, news, trading ranges....thing like this....all filtered though my intuition is how I trade it. But honestly not into it much currently for the reasons I mentioned.

Just right now added CBOE Futures data with IQFEED so I can trade and take a look at CBOE's Bitcoin futures XBT. Have been watching the CME's BTC and I don't really like it at $25/tick. To much risk on this volatile product/instrument. All it trades is 1 lots because of it. I profile volume. I need more/better volume to do my job. Just in the 2 sec I have had XBT up I can see better depth in the book already and the market is closed.


Thank you for the information on NT8, and your experience.Ive used vwap for a while, and i like it for context.Heck, my session templates are wrong, so the vwap is wrong as well, even if there was volume.Also, i cant even imagine trading bitcoin.I heard that Goldman was creating a trading desk focussed on the crypto currencies.
