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.

What I mean is I would like to be able to trade a high number of trades(contracts) on any given instrument. I would like to have computers with enough processing power, ram and hard drive space to allow such trades into the 100's and low thousands of contracts.
I would also like back up systems to allow redundancy.

Well to trade high volumes of contracts in any given contract, I would rely on the use of the order qty.

Or am I missing something here. Just send a single order with the qty you want. Should be able to do it on a 386...
