Does anybody trade Ultra Treasury Bonds Futures?

They were introduced in February. As Ultra (UB) has a higher volatility than standard 30 year treasury bonds, they should be more suitable for short term trading, as they produce larger swings.

Anybody started to trade them?

tested waters a little, they were pretty good recevied by the trading comm, I like ZB and Bunds, too (as long as you keep your report numbers tidied up) but I guess with higher volume to come swings will likely fall, for now let's keep an eye...

Interesting, maybe you call try to find some correlations between currencies and bonds. I believe there is a relationship with currency and bonds.

@Fat Tails

Thanks for the heads up on this.

I don't know how I missed this thread but I just found it.

I will look at the instrument for a few days but so far looks interesting.
