lightspeed

Hi

I'm not sure lightspeed has been mentionned, anyone has experienced with them ? I'm interested because they seem to be a decent alternative to IB regarding futures adn stocks, but do they allow FOPs ?

@ron99

Are you still looking at Nat Gas calls? Are you waiting for the current uptrend to stall out first?

I started looking at charts in 1995. I don't ever recall a two day drop in corn/wheat like this ever.

The daily limits were less back then. Still a huge drop though.

Yes. With the NOAA 6-10 and the 8-14 day forecasts changing to above normal temps, we should be about at the top in NG. I sold some today.

Too bad the above average forecast didn't come out before the markets closed on Thursday and the long weekend time erosion kicked in.

I think the limit was 12 cents? And they would extend the limit to 20 if needed...don't quote me bro!..

I liked those smaller limits. If gave people a chance to regroup, for more news to come out, etc. before the next trading day. Artificial "brakes" on the market, which meant at times there was no market, but I personally liked it.

I have a 119 CTN13 call that I placed this morning and I think I may have made an error. It shows a 0 delta but that can't possibly be right with price currently at 90.4. Am I too close to the money on this one?

I have some of those too. On the big OX summary screen it shows a delta of .02

When you click on that specific option it shows a delta of 0. I don't know why it does that but I think you made a good trade.

I have some on too. Delta right now .0181.

The delta on the OX Trade Calc page incorrectly shows zero. If you go to the options chain page and put your cursor on the strike price a popup box will show the .02 delta.
