  • 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.

@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. ..

P

..same here - Mini is in full points - Dax future in half points

Ok, so continuing on from yesty's mishap. I've now got IB's TWS with my sim account open. I have one IB Dom open with the FDXM, one Jigsaw Dom with the FDAX, one Jigsaw Dom with the FDXM.

If i place a limit order on the IB DOM (FDXM), it places an order on the Jigsaw Dom (FDAX). There is now no orders on the Jigsaw Dom (FDXM), and no prints either, just the depth.

I'll try the NT Dom next...

Far out....i'm now long 2 FDAX, short 2 FDXM. Only the shorts are showing the IB FDXM Dom, the NT FDAX Dom, and the Jigsaw FDAX Dom....

Oh, and my P/L on the NT Dom is showing -8787.5 ticks

I should also mention that i went through the instrument setup on the NT forum and my setup is the same.

On IB Booktrader everything works as expected:

Futures Edge on FIO
Yup, agree @GFIs1

Its the instrument setup in NT thats not right...

Ahhh, i think this could be the issue


Quoting 
Remove and re-add the FDAX 12-15 to your instrument list now that it has different settings. Instructions can be found at the link below.

Edit: nah, still stuffed up....

My NT instrument is clearly not right, these are my trades on the big dax today (sim) and you can clearly see i had the thing on a leash (78 points), yet my P/L has not a single winning trade....

I successfully traded the mini on my IB TWS but not connected to NT. I wish it has been as successful as my sim trades on the big dax....not near so (34 points net).

You guys are beta testers. I run some tick analysis yesterday on Sierra comparing fdax and fdxm, later has around seven times less ticks than former. Will check again in January )

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

That's exactly why I don't trade it until the spread has normalized to 1-2p.
Although getting better, it's still more like this morning:

- The spread and slippage plus the commish to value ratio are the current down side.

+ The smaller valuer and the fact that it is market traded and transparent .... big plus.


If you trade the trend and have a system that get's paid on big days - then this instrument has a lot to offer for smaller sized accounts to enable them to sensibly scale in ..

Pre and post markket is funny though ... I thought my internet connection was down !

Are you using chart trader ?

Do you have multiple instruments loaded on the same chart or are you exiting in one chart and entering in the other ?

Might be some mixup there ..
