I think they're worth trading. Slippage might be a little greater, and spreads are bit wider but you shouldn't have any problem moving in and out of these markets. The added diversification is worth it.

I trade both markets actively. I use date adjusted roll settings as well as open interest roll settings and both seem to work just fine.

LeapFrog developed a module that will allow you to add or subtract capital from your trading account. Perhaps this will help.

Please use the link below and upgrade to build 117.

Some comments from our trading desk...

"Talk circulating in the Sugar market that the March sugar contract ran through 34.20 and touched off a 5,500 lot sell stop. This caused the market to fall down to 32.05 in a few seconds. No one ever said commodity trading is for the faint of heart!"

Funny MSCI Singapore Data in CSI

Does anyone know what to make of this? It seems odd that open and close are identical or almost identical in so many instances. This chart was built by rolling on OI, second trigger.
