Today I looked at a 20 tick chart. Looks like price action is getting visible.

Spread is still mostly 2 point, but volume continues to rise, today over 6.200 contracts.
The big FDAX contract had 10 times the volume today. But it has been trading for ages and the FDXM not even for a week, so room for improvement

I read that IB is now offering FDXM too. I am with Ninjatraderbrokerage, I can now load the chart data of todays trading.

Thanks. Dont forget the big contract is 5 times the small one so notional volume is 50 times different

Can anyone who has this setup with IB and Ninja show me a screenshot of the instrument manager?

None of my FDXM trades showed up on my Jigsaw Dom today, then at one point i though i was short 1 dax mini, i looked at my TWS and i was long two full size DAX! Of course the market went as i expected and boom, by the time i got out i'd done my daily stop...serves me right for mucking around with a new instrument before i'd tested it thoroughly....

The last word i had on it was that the instrument symbol was DAX|||5 for the mini and DAX|||25 for the big brother.

Thanks in advance.

@xiaosi

I got this info from Ninjatrader support :


"The FDXM instrument will need to be added manually.

Please see the below forum post that goes over how to set up Mini Dax (FDXM) in NinjaTrader:

New Mini Dax Instrument Launching Oct. 28th - NinjaTrader Support Forum

Also, for more information, see the below news from NinjaTradre Brokerage on this topic:

https://www.ninjatraderbrokerage.com/emails/ninjatrader_news_October_2015.html

The instrument is brand new and while the is now some historical data it is not currently being recorded on our historical data servers. This is being looked into at the moment. For now, you can go to Tools > Options > Data > Checkmark 'Save chart data as historical'. This will save the real-time data plotting on your chart as historical data and will help indicators that rely on historical data to plot correctly."


Hope it helps. I haven't been able to set it up yet. Will do later.

FDXM

Is it possible that IB are offering an approximation of the FDXM ...rather than the actual market instrument itself?

It means CFD, which is illegal for Americans

@GFIs1 ..... @xiaosi

If you are seeing halfpoints in an IB quote ...then it is not the real market that you are looking good at.

Ratfink's quotes are in full points. ..

Such are IB's quotes; see T&S: left side: FDAX (quoted 0.5p), right side: FDXM (quoted 1p).

The only confusion is that IB didn't introduce the FDXM symbol for the front-end but "solved" the
introduction of the new contract via the multiplier.
