Welcome to futures io.

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.

Not that I know of. I think IB is the only one for US traders, at least.

Sad but true.Some got Topix ( Gain futures for example ) but rates are 2x times higher then IB.Exept Newedge and few other - but they got extremally big requirements.This is so irritating - 90 % of brokers says - You can trade any market in the world but it must be CME ICE or Eurex.Ridiculous,there is so many almost the same liquid markets but no one provide them...

I wish we could trade Korean ETFs through Interactive Brokers, like the KODEX 200. That would be awesome. As for futures, I am currently trading only the KOSPI 200 and the Mini Nikkei 225 through IB.

I must say, after my initial skepticism, I'm growing to like to the Mini Nikkei 225. It is great for scalping with limit orders, as the ranges are often well-defined. Despite what people often say about it, I find that it offers plenty of volatility, at least for my needs.

JPX exchange should reduce tick size for mini nikkei from 5 to 2,5 than it will be great for daytrade

Kospi somethimes is the best place...but it was changed in last years.Till 2012 it was top of the world - volatility,clear charts easy to read and liquid like ocean.Now... If they make nice day once per week its good...Nikkei 225 from OSE is better.Its most liquid (10 times more then NIY and NKD and Nikkei from SGX) and also its easy when you want to scale position.Low tick value,probably cheapest futures to trade,listed most of the day - that makes it great place even for novice or small traders ( who cant trade ES ).And what ? No one offer it...

There is Topix Mini which have 0.25 tick but becouse its quoted as 1500 its not the same of course like Nikkei at 19 000.But its still good option.

How come you don't want to trade the N225M through IB?

And yeah, I agree that the N225M is an awesome instrument, for professionals and beginners alike. I still think the K200 is extremely liquid and makes great moves. For new traders it might be tough, though, because of the large tick value.

1.I HATE TWS.Im not able to use greatest platform available now which is Agena Trader becouse they dont offer Asian markets on it.

2.IB data.I dont need to say more

Of course K200 is liquid and makes great moves - but its just a shadow of the past .

What about Sierra Chart or something else? I use Sierra Chart, and really like it.

Sierra offers OSE data (JPX) too ?

I'm so frustrated after looking a new broker for ,,exotic'' markets.I was even trying to find a local brokers,like KGI (Thai) or russian...but i was too scared.Trading in emerging markets is so ,,easy'' compared to ES/NQ that it is worth risk itself - but not political / colapse of a broker.As a result I will take my profits becouse US Dollar is so strong compared to my currency and trade my local futures (FW20).So ridiculous - second best year of trading ( after 2008 ) and I need to go to basic ;/

Not the data, but the platform itself is great.

Have you tried checking out eSignal for data? Besides that, I think if you need tick data you will be out of luck for the most part, unless you get an Asian broker that offers that sort of service.

For me, the IB data is fine since I am trading off of 5 minute charts.
