I have been trading odd lots of reasonably liquid U.S. stocks at IB, for the last couple of years. Maybe only 300 trades, small quantities.
In 99 percent of cases the fills have been very good. There have been a few poor fills, mostly because the market has jumped over my stop order.

Miny Energy contracts

I tried trading mini crude oil futures many years ago, only to discover they did not accept stop orders. Only limit and market orders. Oops. I don't see anything on the exchange website, have things changed? How about GTC orders, can they be used? Kind of a hassle entering orders every afternoon, wh...

Hi Mat

You can file a claim with the cme as I did. This may or may not get you anywhere! I did it more on principal than anything. If no one ever complains, it is unlikely anything will change. I am really unsure as to what critieria, the exchange uses to decide whether or not to bust the trades,but I do n...

Wick in June Ten Year Note

I received a nasty fill this morning some 2 handles above the market. It seems the June contract was the only one affected. A fat finger error they claim, so far the exchange is not busting it. Did anyone else get stung?

Thanks, I looked at the online version which doesn't seem to have the paragraph you have posted. However the holidays are highlighted in blue. I did notice they changed the tick size for the BOBL.

No Data for Bobl, Bund

Hi All
I noticed I have no data for EBM and EBL for Friday May 1/2009 from CSI or from DTN for that matter. After looking at the Eurex website I have yet to conclude why. Does anyone have any ideas?

Odd, in the backadjusted CU in my 2.9, it shows no data from the 10th forward till the 19th. Strange.
I'm seeing the same problem with version 2.9.3

Hi
I rolled 24 contracts today using a spread. There was about 400 contracts on both sides when I did it. MFG allows stop limit orders(day orders only)
The limit is 4.00 from the stop price. Although not ideal, it is far better than no stops at all.
