I've watched equities on Teletext in the window of a tv rental shop, guessed at the premiums, backed out the iv's in my head, then rushed to the nearest public telephone kiosk and make a reverse call to the broker who didn't speak English.
Here are some gaps for the bund to consider -
7.12.88 - closed at 96.94, filled at 5.8.93 (I'm not sure about this one as I'm using Eurex data and the bund was traded on LIFFE during this period).
25.6.03 - closed 118.26, filled at 25.11.04
7.3.06 - closed at 119.25, still waiting to be...

I'm using the basic CQG Trader order entry (ex-charts, etc) and my cheap feed for charts (maybe lags by a tick or two at times). For me, the extra cost of CQG's or TT's charting modules can't be justified, ie they will not add to, nor improve on, my current set-up.
Similarly, the freedom...
Where a future tardes after the cash market closes, this may also be a factor, otherwise there would be potential arbitrage/market panics the next morning.
Re gaps, one occured (a gap-up)on the bund or bobl and took around three years to fill.
Statistically, even an 80% win-rate needs be treated with caution (as LTCM discovered). Out of a hundred trades, the statistic would still be valid if the first twenty were all losers. But then it may be too late. I suppose the solution is very tight stops to preserve capital for the...
A guy from CQG told me that executing through their front-end is faster than executing through TT. The reason being orders go straight from the CQG server to the exchange whereas TT is routed via the FCM's/Clearer's server, and then to the exchange. Whether the difference is...
