Yes, but how long do you look to hold, 5mins, 2hours, all day?
What platform do you trade on? Can you follow the charts/action?

Have you looked at trading spreads between indices or spreads in interest rate futures. This is how I spend my time and it works better than other things for me. Fact is, trading a spread is less volatile than the outright and allows you to enter with greater size and confidence. You will need to sort out some cheap costs however as you are doubling up the bro and also you better get a good platform to trade on.

Deena, first of all, why are you looking to change the instrument you've been trading for the last 2 years?

Is it how you're trading that's changed or is it the market?

i think its more likely that he/she has been losing for 2 years hence the need for "something new-to make money".


does display admirable dedication to go through a 2 year drawdown though :eek:

A couple of assumptions there FC.

Deena doesn't say if he/she is losing money - just need for something new (AND) to make money.

Looking at Camarilla and some other trading system sounds more like boredom (as suggested by Grubs) rather than a losing 2-year streak.

so why the use of the hyphen??

its all semantics anyway. im sure Deena will inform us of his/her situation.

still, its been ages since i've had a good natter about grammar and general use of english. who fancies joining me in pedants corner?

And for the record me don't fink 'foetid' is spelt 'fettered'. :D

Sorry couldn't resist - it's up to the gentleman what he does with his trousers after all. Oh I've stuck me long pink nose in again, sorry... not in his troos mind, I've little interest in that direction. :eek:

Incidentally why do fashion mags occasionally refer to jeans and trousers as, for instance, "a well cut linen trouser" or "a jean of considerable quality" when most of us prefer the plural? Both sides have a point I feel.

Deena is definitely getting more than he/she bargained for here.
he/she has probably exploded by now trying to assimilate all these new ideas.

O.K.

My my, I thought I was the only person here with a case of extreme Pedantry. I'm glad I am not alone. Gives me some comfort.

Anyway, let's all be patriotic please and start praying for my Long position (fnar fnar) . Rumours of its demise abound...

I have been trying to find information on trading interest rate spreads and strategies that may be applied to trading this market. However, I have not found much to help. Can you recommend any useful reading or sources of information on this?

Not a lot written about this. It is more a style that is passed on from through word of mouth. In my experience it stems from the x-floor traders who got booted out when the screens took over. Today it is taught in the arcades but we wouldn't actually want anybody to write about it, spend too much time staring at trading screens to do that.

Would you be willing to provide any help on this subject (off this board if necessary)

Looking for practical information on what type of spreads to use
and in which circumstances. The only thing I have found at all is a
small section in Van Tharps book written by a LIFFE trader by the name of Kevin Thomas.
