We all know that trading pit-traded futures has its issues with bad fills and so forth.

I would like to start a thread on your experiences with trading pit-traded futures -- especially the horror stories.

I have more success trading open outcry markets than I do electronic markets, so I put up with the inconveniences.

Today I had a particularly bad fill in live catltle on a stop entry and I am trying to learn from this experience and would love to hear you experiences.

Working for the "Big Fish","Big Fat Tuna" or MAW from Chicago, loudest man on the LIFFE floor, was certainly a fun/horror experience.

I'm a NY boy. COMEX/NYMEX trading. I love open outcry, it's drama! Tough place to trade for me personally. My only observation is to trade directly with the floor, don't use some dopy broker who calls down to the floor. Do it yourself!!
