    Round lot costs at prop shops - 120p?????

    when looking at the round trip costs at arcades, you have to bear in mind the actual costs to the company and what they are making from you. liffe charge 56p per round trip for trading euribor futures and a clearer will maybe take another 6p at the most so for you to pay 120p, they are taking a...

    Arcade with no desk fees?

    the company may be, or may be similar to a spread betting company that has recently opened on devonshire row. they offer the promotion of no desk fees and their round trip costs also seem fairly competitive which was surprising. it is also a tax free way of trading as spread betting is tax...

    Refco and TT dispute

    as far as im aware, the refco pro system is basically easyscreen's easy active trade (eat)? in light of tt's problems with refco, they went shopping elsewhere and there were talks of takeovers of easyscreen although im not too sure where that is at right now. ive used eat in its early stages...

    Experiences with FCT

    Hi Tom, This sounds a little bit of a risk to me, chancing over half of your money on a training programme that does not guarantee you a job?!? ive been at an arcade for just over a year now and am just starting to see the rewards so maybe your training course will not give you enough time to...

    Bluesystems charting - too cheap?!?

    Bluesystems charting - too cheap?!?

    seems a good price but it appears that it does not cover liffe, which is what i trade on. when i had a meeting with blue systems, the part that interested me was that they were saying that premium systems like cqg charge you for the exchange data and will charge up to £50 for some exchanges...

    Bluesystems charting - too cheap?!?

    i thought £50 per month plus exchange fees was quite reasonable? im paying much more than that for cqg at the moment and am not really using enough of its features to warrant it. what are the costs of prorealtime and how does it compare to cqg?
