I've looked at this market a few times over the years. I've never found (surprisingly) any volume behind the market at all.

Today, for example, the market has a whopping 6 lots traded with open interest of 1159 (in the June contract).....

Re: CSI/TB

Anthony et. all, It takes me a VERY long time to decide on a CSI upgrade. I've had such insane issues with the data every time I've changed in the past. It blows my mind that a company that knows its customers depend on consistency of data can have such issues with a software upgrade. Zachary Oxman...

IRS has been good for me. I've worked orders from 1 lot to 57 overnight and intra-day. Much like pit, I've always used limits and the fills have come thought in blocks. The spread is of descent size. ICE is now taking SLM's on this market, as posted, which was a nice change from the other option (no...

You've also got ICE to trade Sugar on (fungible with NYBOT)

And they've recently added stop limits to the accepted order type (along with many other ICE markets), which was a handy and needed addition.

CSI/TB

Anthony et. all, That TB tool posted does a wonderful job of threshing out data errors. It's saved me more than a few times, and in fact, I run it in its own version of TB entitled RUN ME FIRST...;) I learned my lesson when CSI, for some unknown reason, stopped updating a Heating Oil contract that c...

Who else got filled in that ELECTRONIC Soybean move....

That move at the open in ELECTRONIC soybeans was insane, and worst of all, they are holding all trades as good trades. I had a clients fill all the way down to 987...1 minute into the open.

Electronic low was 980.50
Pit low was 994

Looks clearly like a fat finger error.....

Peso today, heads up on potential bad fills/data....

Was anyone filled on the Peso today? I had a fill at .90750 for one of my accounts, but the fill was busted.

CSI still shows .90700 as the low, was anyone else filled. This looks like an odd print...

Man's done this with the GBX energies as well, and now the grains. Once ICE gets a stop engine functioning, I would bet you'd see NYBOT heading in this direction as well.

Not to take this off topic, but does this apply to clients directly? As a broker, this is the first I have heard of any charges or fees. Are there links from the CBOT or other sources?

excellent questions by all, and great post Helmut. Personally, I have seen developers use $75 c/s for years as a figure for testing. I thought that those numbers were much too low back when commissions would take up $50 of that total. Now, with brokerage costs being lower, I think a $75 c/s figure i...

Same issue

I had that same issue recently with Aussie Three Year with CSI. Here is what they told me to do to fix the problem:

1.) Database History Refresh (about 20 mins)
2.) Refresh All (about 5 mins)

That fixed my YTT issue.

Josh,

We have been testing a few models that we use to trade on the currencies, and they have been tracking fairly well on the pairs also. I believe Shane posted on the system earlier, but I can refresh if anyone needs:
