Hey there everyone. I can't believe how many pages have amassed since I've been gone. Do any of you trade fx options particularly eurusd. If so any advice on how to trade.

For some reason, I am not able to see the option chain for CCz13 on OX. Anyone else encountring the same problem? I tried it on 2 different machines and connections.

I have the same problem. I can see Puts but most of the Calls are blank.

Yes, I have the same problem. I called OEX support and told them. They had no explanation. One workaround is to use the "old " Trade Ticket. I was able to view bid/ask and enter a trade that way. The All In One ticket doesn;t support it today (but it did last week!).

If you have any questions please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread

Use the Trade Calculator, and manually type in the symbol: CCZ331000C
. You just can't click the Trade Now button to enter an order.

For what it is worth, I have never had this issue until today.

I'm trying to find the SPAN calculator on the CME website. Is this the correct link?

Ordering PC-SPAN®

I think it is. Can someone explain the difference between the PC-Span product for $10 and the SPAN Risk Manager for $3000? That is a heck of a difference in cost! I'm guessing the PC-Span is enough for most of us.


PC Span: http://www.cmegroup.com/confluence/display/pubspan/Use+PC-SPAN

Risk Manager: http://www.cmegroup.com/confluence/display/pubspan/SPAN+Risk+Manager
