When you say the 6E I asume you are refering to the EUR/USD currency futures?

You can probably widen your search for info to anything currency related but also would definately look at the difference between trading spot and fuutres. Each have their distinct pros and cons.

Thank you for your reply. I think that's what confuses me. Eur/Usd fx futures.... I didn't realize it was currency. What is spot vs. futures?
