Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Interest rate and commodities spread trading


I am a four year options trading veteran. I am very keen on learning about interest rate spreading. I know the basics, but i wanted to take my experience to the next level. I would be willing to back test, code, or night clerk for anyone who has experience in this regard. Willing to travel also, but only temporarily as my band doesn't want to find a new drummer.

I am no wizz at interest spreads by any means but there are some good opportunities to profit in this area, all the big boys have "Delta desks" playing the spreads for Arbitrage and you can too;

For laughs you can read about how really badly this can go
When Genius Failed: The Rise and Fall of Long-Term Capital Management: Roger Lowenstein: Books

But if you are really serious on the subject and very good with math, I would recommend this book:
Statistical Arbitrage: Algorithmic Trading Insights and Techniques: Andrew Pole: Books

(if you are not good with math the above book is a bit like taking 10 Nitol, 2 Lorazepam and 3 Imovane )
