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