I am.
It moves, there is money to be made.
But, it is viciously manipulated, the price action has become a joke.
If you want to try because you are not making money in another market, then don't trade it, it will be the end of you. If you are successfully trading a different market, then don't waste your time in the Bund and just focus where you're making money.
But if you do decide to trade it, don't put trades based on the price action, just focus on the technicals. Good luck!

the fut is traded almost exclusively as part of program or arb trading algos. manual folks are being squeezed to death and i dont believe they can survive any longer.

still a good instrument to trade on fundamental, technical or both data because it moves and it's quite liquid.

if you know what you're doing you can use the FOP's on bund and trade exclusively gamma which will provide extra leverage and reduced risk.

good luck

I do very well out the bund thank you!

I live a very comfortable lifestyle trading the bund! Ive got a big house, a lot of the birds on the go and I only drink the very best shampoo!

So if you want to come and join the bund party feel free!
