Catching YM

    Since YM moved to Globex it seems much faster - and no doubt, more noise. Part market, but partly exchange IMO.

    At Ecbot order execution was easier. Now I can't seem to catch it. As soon as I enter it moves away.

    Are market orders or sometning like Ninjatrader a good way to solve this?

    A related question is do many of you use market orders with YM?
  2. it is definitely less smooth. It is now similar to ES with backfills, and choppy moves. I suppose it's good if you're scalping for a few ticks.
  3. Well, hopefully the reliability will improve at least. Trading on ECBOT before the move was pretty frustrating to have to deal with all the outages they used to have.
