Azuki beans

Post by LeviF » Tue Sep 18, 2012 1:30 am

Anyone trading this? OI & volume seems to have declined quite a bit over the past few months. I need to roll out of September but not sure which month to go to or maybe just take it out of the portfolio...

I thought about including it in my portfolio to trade a few times, but like you say, liquidity seems scarce.....

I just got smoked in this contract, waiting too long to roll. Went from a 2.5R profit to nearly 0 in two sessions. If I would have rolled into a distant contract a couple days ago this wouldnt have happened. No more #$%%^$ azuki beans for me!

Nice open interest, about 300 lots per expiry. Makes Rough Rice look very liquid!

I agree with Chris on this. I traded it for years, but it seemed to fall apart. Many days of OHLC at the same price and/or terrible volume and slip on trades.
